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

Review: 2019.397 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Historically, it all seems to be quite accurate. A familiar tale of injustice but also of accomplishment. The future segment speaks of accomplishment free of injustice, which is a nice, optimistic note to end on.

Con: The speculative element is very small and confined to the last quarter of the story. All the rest is historical fiction.

It’s depressing to think racism will still be a big problem even when we’ve reached the point where travel to the moon and Mars is cheap and easy.
