Aliette de Bodard. A Salvaging of Ghosts. (Beneath Ceaseless Skies #195 March 2016)

It’s still online on ‘Beneath Ceaseless Skies’ here, so go ahead and read this little polished nugget of a story featuring (as we find in the first few paragraphs, so no spoilers ahead) a woman carrying out a ‘dive’ into a ruined hulk of a spaceship, with the ‘ghost’ of her lost daughter, and the currents of a warped reality to contend with, both in terms of her mission, and her own inner self.

I read this in Dozois’ Thirty-Fourth Annual Collection of the Year’s Best Science Fiction.
