05:02 pm - An excellent story
Here's a link to an excellent short SF story, “Drag Queen Astronaut” by Sandra McDonald. amberite pointed this story out to me and said that the author was someone she knew in her MFA program, and was quite good. This is the first work I've ever read by McDonald, but it's quite powerful and good.

Some other pieces of Sandra McDonald's to check out might be "The Boys and Girls of Rumney Mill" and "The Firemen's Fairy." The first is somewhat more emotionally affecting, for me, while the second is light and fun and nicely structured. PodCastle ran audio of it here: http://podcastle.org/2009/10/14/pc-074-the-firemens-fairy/

I didn't like the Diana Comet story of hers I read, but I think they've been very well received.
