A short story.
Horace and Stanley float in their sailing boat on the rising oceans over what remains of the Earth. Their homes gone, their families gone, they search for land, for other people. So when they spy a skyscraper on the horizon, they rejoice. It seems that civilisation lies only a few hours away. But soon they come to realise that what lingers there might not harbour salvation at all.
