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

Review: 2019.626 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The setting is suitably creepy.

Con: To the extent there’s anything here at all, it’s a bit of message fiction about how a revolution is coming in which those who got rich from finance or other non-productive work will lose everything.
