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

Review: 2020.258 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Okay, this is really a horror piece with a great twist in it. Beyond that, it does a good job of establishing what a weak person Wayne is and how his sister overshadowed him most of his life.

Con: The long discussions about baseball were really dull.
