Staff Reviews


I tend to enjoy when a storyline (like reality) is enhanced by something material which is immersive and form-changing -- primary sources, for example, or structural alterations. You've got that here, along with the Chinese Communist Revolution, hard science, V.R. and cosmic sociology.

— Mallory
