Robert Ripperger, "Sheila the Endling"

"Sheila the Endling" is a fun turn taking an automobile, a Nissan Sentra, as though it were an animal thats become extinct. "Sheila's last few days were spent in a lonely kind of roaming under the intense watch of her dedicated crew. She had been fighting a long battle with rust, a condition all suffered from in old age or from neglect." The story is just a couple of pages long and quite a fun read reminding us just how dependent we've become on machines.

"Sheila the Endling" is published in the current issue of Oddville Press, a free PDF download.
