Review: 2019.162 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: I don’t think I’ve ever read a butterfly apocalypse story before.

Con: I can’t help thinking that there’s some symbolism here that I’m just not seeing. Otherwise, there isn’t very much to this story, and the people in it aren’t acting very much like they would in a real epidemic.
