When It Ends, He Catches Her, by Eugie Foster
When It Ends, He Catches Her is from that category of stories I have a hard time reviewing - the real short ones. You can't say much about them without giving away the plot. The rules are all different, and I don't read a lot of short fiction. Still, for its type this one was pretty good. We are in post-apocalyptic times, and all theaters are closed (interestingly reminiscent of the closing of theaters in Shakespeare's time). A dancer dances in a dilapidated theater, alone. But then her partner, whom she misses so much, appears and they remember old times...3 stars from me, worth 10 minutes.
