Today’s pick comes directly off of the 2014 Hugo Ballot, one of four nominees for “Best Short Story.” Not everyone votes for the Hugo’s, but if the fiction is free, and if it’s on the internet, I don’t see why you shouldn’t get a taste of some of the nominees, and Rachel Swirsky’s “If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love,” is short, sweet, and weirdly wonderful. It packs a punch at the end, and it’s the kind of story that makes you want to read it all over again once you finish the first time, because you have a new point of view from which to read.
“If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love” was originally published in the March 2013 issue of Apex Magazine (Issue 46). Below, if you’re so inclined, is the link to the story at Apex’s website.
