Book Review: Free-Wrench by Joseph R. Lallo
“A ship may cut your days short, but it’ll make sure the ones you’ve got are filled to the brim. I call it a fair trade.”
Popcorn for the brain. Enjoyable, if lightweight steampunk science fiction. Identifiable world and protagonist.
“I’m giving you an awful lot of rope. Enough to hang yourself and the lot of us. So do us all a favor and don’t go tying any nooses.”
Written in one month as part of the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, every November), which may explain the simple plot and exposition.
“Pursuing perfection does nothing but steal time from things that desperately need work. The policy of this ship is ‘Good enough is good enough.’”
Yes, we did NANOWRIMO, then I participated a second time. I saw the process as a jump start, only a start. No way around writing a novel, no short-cuts unless the writer decides to develop it into a short story. Thanks for the review.
