Anybody want to beta read a short original SF story?

It's one of those fiction-masquerading-as-nonfiction ones, so ideally I need at least one reader who knows little to nothing about a) librarianship in the US or b) academia ditto. You're allowed to have gone to college and have a library card, I just need somebody who tell me if it the basic premise still comes through to someone who doesn't get the in-jokes.

Alas, I do not fit this profile. I was raised by a librarian and a part-time professor. Good luck finding betas!

Thanks anyway! I will send you an emo song that I need help ending instead, if you have time. Nothing like supposed-to-be-working-on-something-else to stir the creative juices.

That's so true. Send away!

I am friends with a librarian or too, but that's the extent. Can I beta?

Sure! private message me what address you want me to send the story to?

I could do it! I'm not a librarian, and didn't graduate college, although I do tend to pick up stuff by osmosis.

Awesome! Two betas can't hurt. What email should I send it to?
