REVIEW: “Lemon” by Mara Regan

Review of Mara Regan, “Lemon”, Luna Station Quarterly 46 (2021): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

“When someone is dying, the rest of us do weird things.”

This. This is why I read short SFF fiction. Because of lines like this, which hit you in the stomach and ring so full of truth.

It hardly matters what the rest of the story is, once you read a line like this, because the story has fulfilled its purpose. It was an added bonus that the rest of the story was so good — and so sad.
