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

Review: 2019.576 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story offers plenty of hints about the relationship between the nameless, sexless narrator and Dr. Kuhn. It’s clear there was some sort of romantic relationship between them, and, from the relative ages, it’s clear Dr. Kuhn has been trying to make this work for quite a while.

Con: The situation is obvious 10% of the way into the story. Sitting through the rest just to watch the whole experiment fail is a bit of a drag.
