snickfic: "Nobody can explain a dragon" (Le Guin quotation) (mood fantasy)

Short Story
Wooden Feathers by Ursula Vernon. Vernon just has my number, I guess. The main character here is a woman who carves decoys, not very well, and sells many of them to an old man who, it turns out, also used to carve. I love the concreteness of the carving, the creepy factor in the middle, and the hopeful note at the end.

Novelette
So Much Cooking by Naomi Kritzer. Selected entries from a food blog during an epidemic. This feels like a very affectionate and hopeful look at the human spirit, and I can appreciate that.

Deadline for Hugo nominating is a week from today!
