Loved the story, very reminisent of Issac Asimov.
I can always trust you to know about science fiction and fantasy, Luke. Why, I vividly remember you sitting in the audience during the Budapest midyear when Dave Robinson was talking, and how you shouted out, "LEMBAS!"Thanks for the kind words about the story.
Matt, I liked the story too. Though you can't trust me at all for either science fiction or fantasy. I do know practical jokesters though and that Uncle Roy is all-time!
