Any way the wind blows

I like the work of Seanan McGuire, and tonight after dinner, when I finally decided, what the heck, I was going to read me something, I picked one of her short stories.
It’s called Any Way the Wind Blows and it is a small fun gem, filled with airships and New York and parallel universes…
I particularly like the way in which the author manages to pack so much into such a small, limited space.
You learn to watch for such feats of writing agility, when you make at least part of your living by selling short fiction. Short fiction requires agility.

I have Any Way the Wind Blows on Kindle, but you can read it online on the Tor.com website.
It’s a short story, and it will take just about half an hour.
But it’s great.
