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

Review: 2019.297 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Rhiva’s misunderstanding about the ocean is amusing.

Con: The biggest problem is that it’s just too short. It hints at an interesting story, but ultimately only makes a joke.

People from Earth who spend just a few months in Space can’t even stand up when they return to Earth unless they followed a rigorous exercise program in space. Rhiva and Mahn shouldn’t be standing in line at all.

It’s hard to believe Rhiva hasn’t even seen a picture of what the ocean looks like.

“Colonites” sounds like nanotech designed for the large intestine.
