This is an open thread on N.K. Jemisin’s “The Effluent Engine” (2010). This thread will remain open until 9pm on Monday, 21 November.
Also, if you enjoyed “The Effluent Engine” and have a few dollars to spare, please consider making a donation to one of the charities identified by the Story for Haiti project. While the Port-au-Prince earthquake was back in 2010, the UN has identified 1.4 million people in need of ongoing humanitarian assistance following Hurricane Matthew. Your donation would not go amiss!
