"Why are you still here, Kate?" she's asking me. "What, like you're too good to be dead?"Dead Man's Holiday, by Nicholas Seeley. Worth a gander.
Speaking of...why are my favorite stories from Strange Horizons the ones that feature dead people? Dead. Nude. Girls, by Lori Selke. 29 Union Leaders, by Genevieve Valentine. Apparently the only thing that could have made Private Detective Molly better is if the little girl had been a corpse.
