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

Review: 2019.133 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Cartwright isn’t a bad guy, but he’s got an awful job. His struggles with his conscience are probably the best part of this story.

Con: We have two cardboard villains here: EvilCorp and Zednik. They're not very believable, and no one else has any agency in the story.
