I came across this short story yesterday and I really liked it. It was published in 1991 and was nominated for a Nebula Award. It's short, clocking in at around 800 words. It's 100% dialogue. No tags, no beats, just two people talking. I saw Cogito did a dialogue challenge a while back on his blog, and this reminded me of it. Lemex and I have been discussing it and I wanted to get other thoughts on it. Why was it so good? So short, with no narration. I thought, 'Well if this can get nominated for a Nebula Award, then I need to get in on this.'
