Neil Gaiman. ‘And Weep Like Alexander’. (Year’s Best SF 17)

Originally in : Fables from the Fountain (ed Ian Whates).

Part of an anthology published in homage to the Arthur C. Clarke ‘Tales from the White Hart’ milieu. In this story, a visitor to The Fountain public house relates just how he has had an impact on the world around us. Just a couple pages, and a single conceit, but nicely told. To say more here would be the ultimate spoiler of that central conceit.
