Do you like exposition? I hope so because that's what you'll get for the first hour or so of Unhappy Medium by T.J. Brown. If you can survive through that, what you'll find on the other side is a rather fun story. I get why some of it, at least, was necessary, but any editor worth their chops should have sliced out a decent portion of the preamble.
