The Egg

I like Stumbleupon and discover something new and interesting everyday. This is today’s discovery and it’s well worth sharing here. It’s called The Egg and was written by Andy Weir who appears to have written several serial-type stories as well as a few stand-alones, of which this is one. He’s done some cartoons, too. Here are the first few lines of The Egg. It’s short–read and enjoy.

You were on your way home when you died.

It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.

And that’s when you met me.
