The Long and the Short of It: A Review by Richard Kelly Kemick of Keath Fraser's "Charity"

The Long and the Short of It

Charity, Keath Fraser. Biblioasis, 2021.

 

There must be a term — something Latin and ornate — for the evolutionary process of when a species of such primacy devours its habitat until everywhere it looks it sees only itself.
