The Folds: Miss Universe - Mico Pisanti

This is a very short story, and the first in The Folds series. I was very curious because it is written by a South African author, and I noticed I very seldom read books written by African authors.

 

After a chemical war left many of the survivors scarred, this is the first year where they once again hold a Miss Universe contest.

 

While there are hints of larger things at play it was extremely difficult for me to focus because it was so short. Especially since there are three additional stories/book I don't see why they couldn't have been one story together. This story basically just covers the Miss Universe contest. I think it had a potential, but didn't fully use it.
