Review: 2019.008 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The narrator’s sense of smell is messed up by the brain-stimulation hardware that was meant to just make her smell certain things. Lucky for her, she’s thought of a way to make some money out of it.

Con: It sets up the conflict but then does nothing with it. Will she be able to tolerate her boyfriend again? Can the device be fixed and made safe for the public?
