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

Review: 2019.605 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story is about Lif finding a new purpose, and by the end, they’ve got one.

Con: There isn’t very much to this story. The only conflict is Lif’s own reservations about risking the local ecosystem. We never do find out whether it worked or not.
