Review: 2019.078 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The setup is interesting. There are jinni’s and goddesses even in modern India that only a few people know about.

Con: Not much is done with the setting. The whole plot is just Binu offers shelter to a girl he barely knows, but he has no way to fight the goddess who comes after them, so he agrees to serve her. The end.
