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

Review: 2019.404 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Presumably the story is about letting things go. The shadhavar is clearly too dangerous to keep around, but the other creatures really don’t belong either.

Con: He has no real agency in this story. The creatures make their own decision and he simply abides by it. This makes for dull reading.
