Review by: David Blake on July 15, 2014 :
Bit of an oddity, this one, but then it IS filed under "Weird Fiction" so what else should I expect?

The prose is perfectly functional and the scenario intriguing, yet I somehow didn't feel the level of suspense that I should have done, and I'm not altogether sure why. The ending seemed to lack impact, too. But this is an interesting and original glimpse into a community with different values and, a day after reading it, I'm still pondering. Thought-provoking material can only be a good thing... So 4 out of 5 from me.
