I enjoyed Headwater LLC, by Sequoia Nagamatsu (Lightspeed), a sad fantasy story about a young girl who discovers a group of mythic creatures and winds up being the cause of their enslavement. Gentle and well-characterised, with some nice fantasy touches.
In Animal Magnetism by Shannon Peavey (Urban Fantasy), Harry has a ghost in his throat, and his wife Della is seeking a cure. They are given snails to help them communicate, but the cure is unusual and complicated. I loved this story; a really imaginative idea, and some lovely ambiguous touches, and really nice writing. Another new author I’ll be keeping an eye on.
