Now the actual short story category. These are a couple to 15 pages on the ebook reader, which are pretty close to the size of book pages.

Swirsky writes a lament from a woman on her fiancee's death bed--if her love had been a dinosaur instead of paleontologist, he would not have let those drunken thugs beat him to death. Seems weirdly anti-intellectual and sexist (why does the woman want to be a flower and be defended by a scary dinosaur of a man?) which I wouldn't expect from Rachel Swirsky. The writing style is meant to be poetic, but it doesn't make up for the whole thing feeling wrong to me.
