Wow. It’s not only the soulstamp concept that drew me in, it’s the mechanics of plausibly altering the past, and the basic assumption that everything has a soul, an understanding of self, and a dream. Love it. At the same time, it’s very much a one-gimmick story, so if you can’t get into the gimmick, you won’t like it – but at under 200 pages, you also won’t have lost much time. I’d recommend giving it a shot.
