Just a quick note -- James Schellenberg of Challenging Destiny has this to say about my contribution to Tesseracts Ten: "I liked Matthew Johnson’s 'Closing Time.' It’s a tale of ghosts and Chinese cooking. Made my mouth water! It stands out as the one major story in the collection that doesn’t try to riff off of standard SF ideas." (I should point out that despite that comment Schellenberg had kind words for many of the other stories, particularly Matt Hughes' "Go Tell The Phoenicians," his favourite story).
