This week's Strange Horizons story is "Crossing Borders" by Tom Doyle. Excellent, excellent story. Definitely worth a read. hrafn, I think you might enjoy the ending.
In other news, I went shopping this evening at the newly discovered closer Stop & Shop. The walk was only 15 minutes. However, the store doesn't have as much as the one in Malden (didn't have my brand of soy milk), and they have no self-checkout lanes. But they do have a Burger King across the street, which might make a nice walk on a weekend morning to get a Croissan'wich. I will likely visit that Stop & Shop again, but I don't think I'll totally abandon the one in Malden (especially on those rare occasions when I have access to a car).
