The Skyline of a Ship, by Anna Stroud, is a wonderfully dark, and truly disturbing, short story. I would love to read more (and hopefully longer) explorations into the human psyche by this author. Although The Skyline of a Ship -- I think she meant "The Silhouette of a Ship" -- is filed under Gay and Lesbian fiction on smashwords.com, it is really a story of a very dark and disturbing need to find a weird sort of immortality. In other words, it is NOT restricted to the LGBT genre, by any means. Unfortunately the translation - which I am assuming was from French to English - doesn't do the story justice. Regardless, read this work, you'll be glad you did, and like me, you'll find yourself thinking about it long after you've read the last, truly unsettling scene.
