Reader's Diary #2034 - Ann Cavlovic: Stan's House

 In Ann Cavlovic's short story "Stan's House" we see a woman named Sohki who is trying to convince the titular character to move out of his longtime home. His house is built on a floodplain, and as climate change has meant more and more flooding, the government really wants him to move.

I enjoyed the premise, but there were a few things I wasn't clear about in the story (a bit about carbon nanofibers seemed undeveloped, the ending was a bit vague). I think we're supposed to feel that Sohki and Stan wound up understanding one another a little better, but I wasn't really feeling it.
