The Scythe is another one of my favorite stories from Ray Bradbury. You can find it in his collection, the October Country. It's about a man who inherits a small farmhouse and discovers he's the heir for Death's job. Each blade of grass in the surrounding fields is a human life, and the character is tortured by an urge to reap the fields with his scythe.
I other news, Ape Con is coming up this weekend in San Fransisco. I'll have a table again this year, so I hope to see some of you real soon.
