Pinching yourself is no way to see if you are dreaming. Surgical instruments? Well, yes—but a mechanic's kit is best of all!

The voice screamed inarticulately with rage. "I'm warning you! Get out and buy a Feckle Freezer right away! Hurry up! Hurry for Feckle! Hurry for Feckle! Hurry, hurry, hurry, Feckle, Feckle, Feckle, Feckle, Feckle, Feckle...."

Brilliant.
Reads like a mix of "groundhound day" and "Dark City". This is actually a horror stroy and the end won´t fail to send a shiver down your spine...

****.

An pretty good tale from a great author. Our protagonist keeps waking up on the same day, albeit unknowingly, and has strange experiences but fails to recall them after falling asleep. This goes on until he chances to escape the "reset" and sets about trying to discover what's happening to him. An interesting "put yourself in their shoes" story.
