I really enjoyed this novelette/short story, call it what you will. It takes an interesting idea, printing meat and mixes it up with forgery and crime and then adds in some great characters for that aspect that always makes stories come alive for me.
I really liked Helena as a main character, but I’d love to know more about her assistant, Lily Yonezawa, and her mysterious past and awesome skills.
