"I have a presentiment of doom upon me...and I fear it will come to us with barbeque sauce."
-- Augustus TwoFeathers McCoy in the short story "Sunbird" in Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman
This story is in no way related to Independence Day in the U.S., but I think it would be great reading for the holiday weekend! It's about a barbeque that...takes a turn. Ooh, so would his short story "Changes" from Smoke and Mirrors. Written in the 90s I think, but so relevant to the current conversation about transgender issues. I love, love, love those two short story collections.
