This story was referred to in the book Bad Twin, which ties in with the TV show Lost. It is considered top-notch for this type of genre. It left me with questions at the end, and the story at first glance is rather dull, but when you think deeper about it, there are lots of things going on beneath the surface. Quick, 90-page read.
