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

Review: 2020.015 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This is pretty much a straight-up rescue tale, with the twist that the hero is an AI, although having part of the story from Calderon’s perspective humanizes it a good bit.

Con: There are no real surprises in the plot, and no real development of the characters.

It’s hard to see why anyone is helping Militant. It doesn’t seem to be doing much to inspire loyalty or affection.
