Short Story Review: Parker McCloud at North Tharsis

Parker McCloud at North Tharsis is a short story tie in with the Lunara Series by Wyatt Davenport.

Granted that there is an argument in there based on pro-population control and saying that the year 2,000 wasn’t liveable because of it, giving over to population control in the first place, but if I can see past that it doesn’t bother me overly much.
