Reader's Diary #2280 - Joy Baglio: Belly of the Beast

 Joy Baglio's short story "Belly of the Beast" takes a common scenario, a spouse who suddenly isn't the same spouse that got married, and wraps it in a fun metaphor (i.e., the protagonist's husband has been consumed by a wolf that now takes his place). Fun, except of course, it's a wolf so there's a hint of danger there which likely comes from gender dynamics. It's quite an enjoyable, well-written piece.
