Review: 2019.005 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: I think what I liked best about this story was the casual way Vedrum reacts to everything, such as when he and Brea are mourning Aerd, and Vedrum makes her about the least-romantic offer ever: “I can put my penis in you, if that will help.”

Con: The whole thing about “beautiful sores” kept creeping me out. It was almost impossible for me to swallow the premise that getting ill could ever substitute for sex.
