Long Gone Soon by Eruthiel

'Alleyways, backstreets and narrow spaces of all kinds feature heavily in a typical 'mean and seedy' environment. Kontropolis, nerve centre of the Mean and Seedy Republic of Kontron, is famous for being composed almost entirely of such areas, and for the badly-lit brothels, reclamation dives and kebab houses that line them.' This unusual one-shot suggests an intriguing possibility for Zaphod's past. Not the best pastiche, perhaps, but the atmospheric world-building makes up for it. Strange & dark
