2015 Story 6

From the January 2015 issue of Lightspeed Magazine:


06. THE LONELY HEART by Aliette De Bodard  A tale that mingles Chinese myth and modern socio-ecological issues into a tightly-paced, nightmarish whole. Displaced by the development of the Three Gorges Dam, a homeless family struggles to survive by scrounging and selling what they can at market (the wife) and taking hard labor jobs (the husband). The wife's encounter with a demonic pimp and his child-like girl slave turns their lives even further upside down. Eerie and ethereal.
