‘The Good Life’ first appeared in FTL #6 – Autumn 1990
‘The Good Life’ (John Kenny). A re-working, whether the author knows it or not, of the Third Book of Gulliver’s Travels. How long should medical science keep the terminally ill alive? Forever, it seems. The contrast between the resignation of the victim and the growing distress of his family is poignant, and the slide towards horror is inexorable. A strong piece.
