A question for Gregory Kane

Q: What is your favorite short story?

A: My favorite of the classics is Ray Bradbury’s “There Will Come Soft Rains.” The tale of a robotic household going about its daily routine after humanity has been decimated by an atomic bomb remains one of literature’s great cautionary tales. My favorite contemporary story is Ted Chiang’s “Tower of Babylon”, a dreamy tale of the construction of a tower that reaches the heavens. I love this story for its surreal style and its mind-bending ending, which carries a strong message about human endeavor.
