Review: 2020.253 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It paints a very pretty picture for what the best possible 1940 might have been, assuming someone intervening in history starting around 1850.

Con: Almost nothing happens in the story. Nearly all of it is a long infodump about this alternate 1940 together with a detailed description of what pregnancy is like.
