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

Review: 2019.482 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The background to the story is quite interesting, and a magsail mission to Saturn is quite a challenge.

Con: Bill is an unsatisfactory protagonist. He has no goals, and he accomplishes nothing. He just hangs around and broods.
