"We Love Deena" : Suggested Reading

Read it here: "We Love Deena"
By Alice Sola Kim
In Strange Horizons

"We Love Deena" is a kind of romantic horror story. It's told from the point of view of a woman who is passionately in love and who courts the object of her desire by hopping from one body to another in order to be with her. It doesn't matter, though, what form she takes. It never works. What makes it worse is that we can see, although she doesn't, how awful this form of stalking would be. The horror comes at the end when we find the stalker is about to take the next, logical, step.
