    I started to read the Snodgrass story on Tor.com but was too dismayed by the following sentence to continue:

    The truth hurts sometimes.

    But it's not the truth and never was - the average English man or woman never had a prissy BBC accent for a start!

    I'm not sure. The author of the story, Melinda M. Snodgrass, is American, and I'm struggling to think of any English regional accent which wouldn't sound "prissy" when compared in isolation. And I still think we're all ugly compared to them and a good number of other peoples. Maybe I should stop comparing.

    That description just seemed fantastically rude and sterotypical when I first read it but then I realised - this is how Americans see us. This is how we are.

    Basically, that story didn't do a whole lot for my confidence. That's my review, Victoria.

    A new one:

    Analog, July/August 2017

    This is a "special double review" because the other person was a little late in turning in an article, so it was reassigned to me, then the original reviewer turned it in under the wire. It's interesting to see two views of the stories.
