An interesting story, which follows a young man who wakes up far, far into the Earth’s future. He’s been in suspended animation following a botched surgical procedure, and has only been reawakened due to the technical skill of some very alien creatures who are now on Earth, with humanity in much reduced circumstances. It’s well told, and the closing metaphor of doors which have to be closed to provide protection, works well.
