I really liked the idea of this story… I wish it was a novel! It ended too soon.

A novel would be great – it felt like the story could’ve gone on much longer. It was so interesting.

One of my favourite ever short stories. The central idea is fascinating and beatifully dealt with and the ending where the previous civilizations are waiting in suspended animation is sad and brilliant at the same time. Fantastic!

I agree Mat,

The central idea for this story is one of the most unique and fascinating I’ve ever read. A great ending too!
