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

Review: 2019.678 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a pretty good description of the horrible uncertainty of living in a police state, amplified by the availability of AI to make reality even harder to ascertain.

Con: The narrator’s situation seems to be completely hopeless, and her drive into the wilderness seems to be an exercise in futility.
