This was a fun story, very creative and well thought out. It is surprisingly focused for a large short story/novelette, which makes it a quicker read than its size would suggest. The characters were well defined, if not entirely deep. The villain especially - much like the story, she grows increasingly entertaining as time goes on.
While not a weighty story (it's actually quite silly at times, but a fun silly), the constant presence of social anomie turns what would otherwise be a villain's throwaway MO into a consistent theme
Well edited, too.
