Sequel to The Problems Compound, by Andrew Schultz

Off-Site Reviews

The Breakfast Review
"Slicker City" is a sequel to last year's "The Problems Compound", and a number of the comments then still apply. We're still dealing with a surreal, whimsical setting derived from word-phrase reversals. The prose tends towards a rather high degree of introspection--I didn't comment on this last year, so perhaps it's heavier and more noticeable this year. Mostly, it's a standard IF puzzler, or at least that's how it begins.
