Review: 2019.311 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story does a really nice job of setting up the final conflict, and it’s quite exciting that right up to that point, we really don’t know who’s right. Is Nata going to freedom or to certain death?

Con: After all the build up, I expected a clear answer at the end, but the story leaves us in the dark.
