2016 Story 5

Today's story comes from the January 2016 issue of Lightspeed Magazine:

5. THE SAVANNAH LIARS TOUR by Will McIntosh.  Ben fell in love with his wife Delilah when he takes her trolley-tour of Savannah, "The Savannah Liars Tour." When she dies unexpectedly, he pays into the system that allows people to visit the deceased on the other side. But life moves on even though the dead don't. On its own, this is a really touching story; reading it so soon after The Dark Age (see previous post) was like a double gut-punch. The characters are immediately relatable, the speculative aspect of the story doesn't overwhelm the characters but also doesn't feel tacked on.
