"Only the dead in the streets . . . in the city"

You have now crossed over into . . .

Charles Beaumont
Back when smoking was cool . . .
I recently, and quite on accident, discovered a really great speculative short story I think people will enjoy.  I don't want to give too many spoilers, but in the short story you will find yourself transported to dystopian world where a few survivors are planning what to do next.  Sound like a familiar theme?  The writer, Charles Beaumont (how I love my Beaumont's--see Francis Beaumont, dramatist) is a well-known 50's and 60's writer of speculative (read scifi, fantasy, horror, etc.) writing.  Many of his works appeared as "Twilight Zone" and "Alfred Hitchcok Presents" episodes.  Here is a link to "Place of Meeting" by Beaumont (a pdf scan).  I'd love to hear when you "figured out" the mystery.
