The Egg, by Andy Weir

A man dies in a car accident, and awakens to find himself confronted by...a person. He finds it a little difficult to be more specific, and the person indicates that the specifics aren't either important or especially real. They then converse about the nature of existence, the man's existence  in particular.

It's hard to say more without spoiling the "surprise."

This isn't a bad story, but I think perhaps Mr. Weir should stick to hard sf.

Not recommended.
