Aftermath by Matt Phillips

Aftermath by Matt Phillips

"The End War has left Enscombe alone in the desert. He is thirsty, tired and starving. The only thing he knows to do is walk. Soon, though, he'll have companionship... But what will these survivors eat?"

Scenery is beautiful describe with some repetition of different words with the same meaning.  The tale is reminisce of The Road by Cormac McCarthy (I said the book, and not the film, because after reading the book, I did not want to subject myself to the movie) mixed with the film Book of Eli.  I don't recommend this short story due to how it ends.  It is a cheap emotional betrayal to the reader.  In fact, story lacks substance.
