SLUSH

No title

By Nova Girl93, author of RU in? Saga

Oct 4, 2019: This one had me hooked with the first sentence. I love it’s charming, sarcastic sense of humor. I love the characters’ personalities. And I love the mystery it builds from the very first sentence. It’s great.

THEY ARE SMOL

They Are Smol Makes Me Lol

By J.Y.H. Zhu, author of Bard’s Log

Aug 20, 2019: Get ready for some witty dialogue with hilarious exchanges like, oh, scoffing at a system’s lack of suns. The writing is razor-sharp, and humbling. As if these were the thousands of words spoken by the infamous image of the pale blue dot that is our planet. They are Smol is a clever Lovecraftian comedy that’s tons of fun while staying true to the sci-fi genre, and that’s no smol feat.

OVERHULL

Three episodes in…

By Wayne Basta, author of Seraph's Gambit

Feb 11, 2019: "Overhull" is the story of a renegade mechanic, sticking it to the powerful corporations by fixing their broken ships. Hull is a former military officer who retired to fix old ships but now w young girl, whose family Hull helped years ago, shows up eager to learn.

The first three episodes throw a lot at the wall. But they don’t really stick. The core idea here is solid. Quirky engineer, eager apprentice, evil corporation inevitably going to make their lives difficult. Unfortunately, it feels like nothing more than that checklist. The world and characters don’t feel real but rather just ideas.

That said, it’s a good first draft. There’s a lot to work with there. It just needs subtlety.
