Alex Irvine. Remotest Mansions of the Blood. (F&SF May/June 2010).

A dream/nightmare-like story, in which a rather self-obsessed mysogonistic alcohol who is seeking to find something missing in his life/himself finds himself in a strange little town in latin America. Following an earthquake, the current object of his obsession, Maria, introduces herself to him. And then, somewhat Gene Wolfe-like, the difference between what is real, and what is dream, and who is doing the dreaming, and what it all means, becomes very, very blurred.
