REVIEW:
"Sol is a model of economy in its depiction of a blighted Earth so toxic that a young child can never leave her house (...) the existential payload is heavier than it ever was, and it’s achieved on a fraction of the resources. You can go big or go small, but here's decisive proof that there’s more than one way to Crazy an eight." - The Georgia Straight
