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

Review: 2019.393 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s excellent the way the horror in the story gets introduced a little bit at a time. Even the “Snake Stick” next to the crawl space contributes to the feeling. When she finds the body, we know this isn’t going to be an ordinary mystery.

The twist that Shar knew all about it is both unexpected and unsurprising. And, of course, the parasite that helps her find story plots was an interesting idea.

Con: I can’t beleve she never wrote herself a much longer note explaining all the details of what was happening.
