Review: 2019.062 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: I liked the idea that he made money by republishing the “Gromoire of Goblins” and re-titling it “Practical Magic for Starship Protection.”

Con: It’s not really a story so much as an exploration of an idea. By the end, nothing has really happened.

Sounded like grandfather ignored universes with advanced science, son wanted to expand magic where it was narrow, and grandson wanted to go further by introducing magic to completely scientific universes.
