Very prophetic of Mr. Jenkins in this war story to choose 1941 to 1943 as the time setting. This work would be aimed at early teenagers i imagine, and as such is exempt from anything too caustic. It is what it is and nothing more. Just one thing: where exactly is the word "wabbly" supposed to have come from?
Typical teenage space stuff. Knowing when it was written might help me "slot" it in. Nothing eye-widening or Asimov-threatening. Immunity granted from criticism because of the age of the target audience. Yawn.
Little gems like this make all the sifting worthwhile. What more can I say?
Interesting concept for 1900. The ending started to get vague with the final few lines going over my head entirely. Was he from the moon or had he engraved his image on the moon or what? Worth reading.
