Esther M. Friesner. Rutger and Baby Do Jotenheim. (F&SF Sept/Oct 2011).

A most bodaciously excellent yarn from Friesner, with a very unlikely couple – the titular Rutger and Baby. The former an academic, the latter a pole dancer. With her lapdog poodle, Mister Snickers, in tow, they find themselves lost in the woods. Help appears to be at hand, but they find themselves in a world of myth and legend, at the table of the Norse Gods, no less, in a whole world of potential pain.
