Caspian Gray. Insect Joy. (Interzone #237, Nov-Dec 2011)

A shorter story that feels like it would be more at home in a second-tier speculative fiction semipros rather than a top-level mag like Interzone.

A young woman who is more attuned to the emotions of insects and animals that her wheelchair bound ex-vet husband finds that the crickets from the pet supplies shop where she works have an impact on his condition. It’s okay as far as it goes, but ideally needed to go a bit further in one direction or another to be more satisfying.
