It's weird reading in 2011 a story written in 1911 that the world as we know it will end in 2012. I guess ol' Jack was on board with the Mayans way back then.

No plot summary here (if you're looking for one read any of the other GR reviews, whether they cop to a spoiler alert or not), just a bullet-point review: early example of the last-man-on-earth genre, brief in the extreme, a post-apocalyptic vignette.
