“The Axiom of Choice,” by David W. Goldman (New Haven Review, Winter 2011).
What a great way to end my Nebula reading.
I have a weakness for second-person narratives. (And I love adventure games).
This story begins as a literary version of a choose-you-own-adventure book, but soon turns into something else. I can’t tell you what. You have to go read it. Have to.
I stood on the train platform to finish this story just so I wouldn’t have to stop. It was that good.
