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

Review: 2019.151 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a fairly decent send up of the shallowness of online religion.

The “asteroid” moving at 100,000 miles/hour is feasible, provided it fell from the Oort cloud and hit the Earth almost head-on, and technically it was a meteoroid, not an asteroid.

Con: There’s no plot to the story.

There’s no way a fragment of the meteoroid could hang around for a week after the impact.
