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

Review: 2019.258 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The Salton Sea isn’t quite this bad yet, but it’s probably no more than ten years away from what’s described here. It's an unsung ecological disaster that looks inevitable at this point.

Con: This story is barely SF at all.
