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

Review: 2019.319 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Lee is definitely a true believer; allowing worms to eat your brain shows absolute dedication to your cause. The science and technology are accurate up to a point, although I’m pretty it'll never really be possible for humans to transfer memories the way flatworms do.

Con: It’s a story that glorifies terrorism.
