Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2018.152 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Ariel (for the narrator must be Ariel) eventually manages to escape from the loop its been in ever since whatever happened when it encountered “the witch.”

Con: This sort of fake-scientific language can be very poetic, but it’s very tiresome to read.
