"For Want of a Better Word" in The Cincinnati Review

Sean Gill's short story "For Want of a Better Word," which won the 2018 Robert and Adele Schiff Award in Prose, is now available for purchase in print in Volume 15, Issue 1 of The Cincinnati Review.

Fiction Editor Michael Griffith writes, "Sean Gill’s excellent 'For Want of a Better Word' begins with a clever premise—a lab assistant inventing words for an experiment in artificial intelligence—and then does ingenious things with tone and timespan to make that premise far more than merely clever. The result is a surprising, touching, funny, and bittersweet story about the ways being smart can help us, and the ways it can’t."
