Hi, in the 80s I read a short story (part of an anthology of [I suspect
SciFi]) of a person given final words before being executed by firing
squad. His final words extended to several pages in a single sentence. An
erudite prisoner, he used Latinate terms to describe the appearance,
intelligence and ancestry of his executioners. I remember 2 quotes "..my
postposition will be more horizontal than my preposition..." and "'..I
shall end not with a whimper but with a... 'Bang!" Or that is the gist
from a faulty memory...
Can anyone out there help?
