On "A Puddle of Dead" by Grayson Bray Morris (1974 words) ***

Much of science fiction resides in the ideas it offers to readers. In that sense, sci-fi isn't unlike Einstein's old mind experiments. And Morris here certainly has an idea. If we could extract energy from the dying body, concentrate it, and make that body come to life again, would the effort be worth it? In one sense, Morris is simply updating the old question of whether it's better to burn quickly and brightly or to simmer coolly for a long, long time. Read the story here at Daily Science Fiction.
