Short story with obscure homage [Sep. 17th, 2009|09:25 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I've just written an SF short-short story for a competition, wherein I've named my protagonist "Kvardek-Du". I'm absurdly pleased about this, but I now realise that the name might additionally be read as a reference to this userpic.

Oh, I'm so clever.

Nah. That would be the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything.

Any chance of you posting your story here? Or is that not allowed in the competition rules?

I'll post the story, and an explanation of the references, at the weekend after the competition closes.

"Oh, I'm so clever."

Could you please explain it to the thick amongst us?
