Review: 2020.299 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: I liked the way the other world wasn’t the real Mars but rather an image of the real world where, for example, the lady from the Council trying to steal the uncle’s property was a giant poisonous steel spider.

Con: A lot of the symbolism went past me. I’m sure the mannequins were supposed to represent something, but I couldn’t quite see it.
