I enjoyed this short story - was the author expecting it to be sold/read/reviewed as a short, or as part of a collection? It probably would have made more sense to have bundled it with the anthology I believe it was originally published with, rather than a stand alone short. I recently read some Cheevor (American author) short stories which went together well. This was a bit like getting the audio single when you were expecting the LP. Brought back memories of Australia.
