Claire Humphrey. A Brief Light. (Interzone #252, May-Jun 2014)

interzone252A relationship between a couple has to cope with the palpable presence of the spirit of a dead person, and a visit from the mother-in-law on account of the unwanted presence of a dead sibling, a same-sex relationship for one of the partners.

Nicely told, but a bit offputting as it’s the second story I’ve read in a couple of months featuring a couple having trouble with the undead, with a very much alive mother in law factored in to the equation (the first being D.M. Armstrong’s ‘Butterscotch’).
