A review, and a few words

The Valentine's Day mini-issue of the Journal of Unlikely Entomology got its first review.

Today's Excerpt

"So the mess hall will need to get cleared out, and we'll need to keep any specific area we're currently working on clear--for example, the rudder control--but we can house people there in relative safety."

"Thank you, Mr. Metzger. One last thing before I let you return to the task at hand: please define 'relative safety.'"

Metzger grinned up at Deadbeef. "This is the Grey Perl," he said.

To which nothing else needed to be added.
