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

Review: 2019.612 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s pretty clear early on that this is a post-collapse society of some sort, but there’s enough advanced equipment to make you wonder just what the rest of the world is like. From the names of places, it’s pretty clear this is set somewhere in present-day England.

Terik has an adventurous spirit just to want to meet this stranger, and it’s significant that Danny sees merit in his willingness to engage with strangers.

Con: And then it just stops. It’s a nice intro to a story, maybe a novel. If there’s more to it, I’d be interested in reading it.
