A great little Dieselpunk story.


This was a pretty easy, simple read. I enjoyed it. But I didn’t really felt swept away by the story.

The writing in this short story was great. Which is probably why I enjoyed it so much. Yet, I didn’t find the storyline super engaging. There was something a bit, yes, this is fun, but I’ll forget about it as soon as I turn the final page. Which I effectively did.

As I said, an enjoyable story. But not one that is memorable, and not one that I am desperate to read again and again.
