A review

Some random ambling around the Net, of the type that usually occurs when I should probably be doing something else (I'm trying to think of a way to suitably parody Pygmalion with vampires, since you ask), has turned up this review. It's of Semaphore Magazine's March edition, and I particularly like the bit that goes:

In “Last Orders,” Stuart Sharp tells the story of humanity’s last few moments on Earth. You might think that’s a morbid little tale, and you’d be right, but it’s also a fun romp of a story. Sharp makes the seemingly endless dialogue between a barkeeper and his last customer flow smoothly, and at the same time that you want to tap them on the shoulder and point out that there are only a few minutes left, you’re reveling in the familiar drama of day-to-day life. “Last Orders” is distinctly reminiscent of the start to Douglas AdamsHitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, but that resemblance does it more good than harm.

Great review - can you get much better than a positive Douglas Adams comparison?
