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

Review: 2020.388 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s more or less the tale of how Sorrow rose to serve the queen of France, helped her with her impossible problem, and then escaped the Revolution.

Con: It has long dull stretches, and it’s more than half over before there’s any plot at all.
