Great review of Ezeiyoke Chukwunonso's story "The Last Man Standing"

In a review of the anthology Future Lovecraft by Matthew J. Constantine, Ezeiyoke Chukwunonso's story The Last Man Standing was highlighted as the best in the book:

"And the best story in the book, though a story I think didn’t fit in the anthology, was ‘The Last Man Standing,’ by Ezeiyoke Chukwunonso.  I could have seen this in any of a dozen apocalyptic anthologies I’ve read, but I didn’t read Lovecraft in it at all.  Still, a darned fine story...

I can’t really recommend the book.  There’s just not enough good, or good enough to go out of your way to read.  But I would seek out Chukwunonso’s story.  He’s someone to keep your eye out for; a clear talent."

The Last Man Standing is included in Haunted Grave and Other Stories, published by Parallel Universe Publications.
