Review: 2020.298 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: As afterlife stories go, it’s an interesting twist. The bartender and his wife give the young gay casualty (of World War I, I think) a second chance, but most of the story is about how they came to be operating this place and why they’re so generous.

Con: It’s not a bad little tale, but there’s not much to it. In particular, I didn’t feel that any of the three characters actually earned a happy ending.
