Horror Literary Fiction Science Fiction Romance Other Dimensions quantum physics lgbtqia+ metaphysics The Beatles gay non-linear lgbt breakup slipstream

This story first appeared around last year's Valentine's Day, and ironically, it's a love story about a breakup. Also, metaphysics, sculptures, and weird objects showing up in your living room from other dimensions, with offhand cameos from the Beatles and the Eleventh Doctor. This is my queer unabashed love letter to all things metaphysical. It also came straight out of one of the weirdest dreams I've had. (Why thank you, my subconscious.)

Fantasy Humor Satire urban fantasy

Marcy's neighbor Jasmine asks her to be her "sassy best friend." Jasmine has been reading urban fantasy for her literature thesis and believes herself to be a paranormal investigator. At first, Marcy humors her because it beats what's on TV, but then they meet a were-beaver, battle some drones Jasmine thinks are fairies, and Marcy starts to worry about the words "aiding and abetting." Can this modern-day Sancho save the town and her Quixote from each other?
