Graylord Man's Last Words


Wolfe's comments from the Introduction to Starwater Strains

"Graylord Man's Last Words is a simple little twenty-ninth-century story about a poor kid sent to live with a servant in the house of a rich man. Dickens would have made a novel of him, and it would have been wonderful."


A young robot witnesses the death of what may be the last human on Earth.

  • Theories about what happens under the surface, what the narrator isn't telling us, who the narrator is and when and why s/he is telling the story, what the whole thing "means," etc.
    If there are multiple or competing theories, each one should be given a name with a three-bang (!!!) header; if the page begins to get out-of-hand from the size of these, as could happen in a few cases, they should be shuffled off to their own page(s).
