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

Review: 2019.495 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There’s plenty of humor in this tale. I love this line:
My hand gropes on auto for my phone to either dial 911 or to tweet about it.
The teenager getting eaten by the monster is the only thing that keeps me from classing this as a humor piece.

Con: I don’t really see how they covered up this mess. What did they do to cover up the missing teenager? And if anyone livestreamed this, would lots of people have seen it?
