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

Review: 2020.411 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s sad the way Anisah gradually gets disillusioned. We don’t even know if they’re still en route or if they long ago passed their target, but her attempt to draw some attention to the fact that something seems to be wrong goes very wrong.

Con: It’s okay for what it is, but there’s not much to it. We see a slice of life on this dismal ship, but without knowing if there’s a destination ahead, we can’t even tell if it’s sad or utterly hopeless.
