Reviews of Trade (A Novelette) by Lochlan Bloom

James Jenkins reviewed on Nov. 9, 2019

I read 25% before putting this down. What I read did not seem to be going anywhere. If it was going where the intro suggests, I could not see it.

Paul Samael reviewed on May 26, 2013

“Trade” is narrated from a point in the not too distant future when an internet platform (a sort of cross between Facebook and Ebay) has radically changed the way that people approach sex. Sometimes you have a feeling from the first page that something is going to be worth reading - and for me, “Trade” delivered on that initial promise. The premise was sufficiently intriguing and enough happened in terms of plot to justify the label “novelette,” with its implication that the story will deliver some of the things you would normally expect from a longer work. A gripping and thought-provoking read.
