Review: 2019.618 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story continues to be interesting, and I’m eager for the next installment. The setting is cool, and the characters are interesting.

Con: This fragment doesn’t even try to be a stand-alone story. Crowe has almost no agency in this part of the story: other people make all the decisions and he just helps them when he can.
