Not much of a review, just a few thoughts about it.

This time around zarf tried a more "normal" pseudonym, but I believe his writing style and ingenious mastery of the form are good hints at the real author.

You end up trying a few arbitrary actions, even though they are mostly solidly logic and fair. Pretty much all actions provide sensible responses (my favorite being trying to (Spoiler - click to show)burn the books).

I like how the theme of the game ("metasemanticity") is a meta-interpretation for IF itself and the PC likely to represent zarf rushing to build this world against the deadline of the JayIsGames competition. Clever. :)

All around, a very satisfying entry. I didn't play many of them because some by n00bs were pretty lame...
