Who do you reckon knocked at the door

Hmm...Having difficulty with this one over lunch...:? Here is my tuppence.

1. It does not matter whom 'I reckon' knocked on the door as unless I am the 'last human' my opinion will not matter.
2. I cannot determine if 'the room' rather than 'a room' has any significance. What/where is 'the room'
3. Since 'someone' (normally attributed to human interaction) knocked on the door, I presume as the Worlds last human (to have heard it) it must have been me.
4. ' Worlds last human' and 'someone' may be peoples names. Works fine !!
5. I do not believe that the Worlds last human would be simply sitting in a room. Personally I would be getting wired right into all those things I really wanted to do but would probably get me arrested/jailed :-D

It was just one of those random ohh I have got too much time on my hand threads ....creative mind you see :-D

"The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door..."

This two-sentence horror tale is presented as a story within a story, right at the start of Fredric Brown's 'Knock', published in the December 1948 edition of Thrilling Wonder Stories.

Brown decribes how the horror in this story is all implied... what could be at the door? "But," he says, "it wasn't horrible, really."

He then tells the story of Walter Phelan, the last man on Earth after an alien race called the Zan invade and kill everyone apart from Walter Phelan and the last woman alive, Grace Evans.

Perhaps as a response to Brown's tale, in July 1957, Ron Smith produced what he called 'A Horror Story Shorter by One Letter Than the Shortest Horror Story Ever Written':

"The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a lock on the door..."

Brown's version of the mini-story was supposedly subsequently submitted anonymously to a short story competition on NPR, and won that competition. Plenty of web sources cite this as the original source of the story. None of the sources have any more details about the competition, but Brown's version was published some twenty years before NPR started, so this is clearly false.

Even so, Brown did not come up with this story himself. It has existed in various forms for over a hundred years. Thomas Bailey Aldrich presented his version circa 1870:

"A woman is sitting alone in a house. She knows she is alone in the whole world; every other living thing is dead. The doorbell rings."
