This is a delicious short story about a self-centred professor, completely caught up in the microcosm of his own experimental invention, configuring, mostly in afterthought, every petty detail except his own petard. Nicely painted scenes, easily envisaged, and funny, very funny. Although listed as Sci Fi, this is such a great story it is trans-genre and could be enjoyed by anyone with a funny-bone. Definitely worth reading.

The other day while travelling home from work I needed a bit of a lift, so decided to read the second of Tabitha's Ormiston-Smith's short stories that I had recently gotten.
OM Goddess !!
This is Tabitha's first dip into the science fiction pool, and let me say that she did a pretty impressive job !
Remember, this is only a short story. It is snappy, punchy and has an ending that reminds me never leave my pets unattended !!
If you are looking for a short story that will lift your spirits, then definitely give Professor Tomlinson's Last Experiment a go !!

This short story totally got me! It felt like I was being catapulted into some weird, but beautifully written, film of fiction and sat ready to go along for the ride with Prof Tomlinson. It was fantastic. Short and snappy, but filled with detail and charm, and just what I needed. I have read other work by this author, and she really knows how to engage with her audience. I haven't read a short story for some time, and was initially dubious about how much this would grab my attention. But, I was immersed into it and just didn't want it to end. A brilliant read.
