Review: 2020.046 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There’s something cute about Shakespeare’s long-suffering characters rebelling.

  1. This was translated from Spanish by Toshiya Kamei. The author has Spanish work listed at isfdb.org all the way back to 2009. Not sure how that affects eligibility for the Astounding. I don't see anything about language on the Astounding website.
