REVIEW: “Sombra” by Julio Angel Ortiz

Review of Julio Angel Ortiz, “Sombra,” Cossmass Infinities 7 (2022): 58-81 — Purchase online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

Content note: Modern-day slavery and human trafficking; nonconsensual prostitution.

One part good time-travel story, another part pointed social commentary on the early 21st century, “Sombra” more than rewarded the effort of getting through its length, absolutely nailing its gut-wrenching ending.
