Review: 2020.135 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a pretty good account of how Tristar took advantage of the dead whale, made friends with Hunter, and fought off the beast that wanted to eat them.

Con: An alien protagonist in an alien environment is the hardest kind of story to pull off because it’s so hard for the reader to identify with anything.
