Written by S.D. Clifford

With an imminent execution date, and just under two hours left before life ends, Terry has no time for morbid reflection, wills, anger, or regrets.
As the clock tick tocks to the magic moment, the pressure is mounting on Terry to bring his somewhat stunted technology skills and event management experience into play, whilst also doing his utmost to accept the reality that nobody wants to either show up, say goodbye, or take time out to honour his importance.

In a world of AI-generated online execution notifications, complex payment processes and flat-pack coffins from DIKEA, dying will prove to be anything but simple.
