2014 Story 107

From Lightspeed Magazine April 2014

107. THE ONLY DEATH IN THE CITY by C. J. Cherryh

In a far future domed Paris, old souls reincarnate repeatedly, often falling into the same old patterns of behavior despite the chance to do things differently. Alain is a rare new soul introduced to the mix. He falls in love with one of the oldest souls in the city and makes a dangerous deal to win her love. It’s a deeply touching story with some wonderful world-building details and a very fairy tale tonality despite the far-future setting.
