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

Review: 2019.191 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The setting is pretty cool. I got a kick out of the idea that instead of people of color, they had people of technicolor!

Con: Broken English, unnatural dialogue, and intrusive narration utterly ruin this story.
