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

Review: 2019.526 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There’s plenty of slip-stream humor. The various versions of the story play with the theme in different ways. I thought the one where she ends up living in a cave eating nuts, berries, and the occasional squirrel but “she is reasonably happy” was particularly funny.

Con: There’s not much to it besides the running joke.
