  • Kilian Melloy at Wigglefish has posted his review of 'Section 31: Abyss.' "In one sense, Abyss skates along the boundary of parody for both the genres it represents, Star Trek and spy thriller," he wrote. "But the book also serves to shake things up, to do what satire does most constructively — force a good hard look at the status quo and the flaws that are easy to edit out of awareness." Thanks to Psi Phi for this!
