Story recommendation

A week before the winners of the Hugo awards are announced at WorldCon, I finally got around to reading novella nominee "The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath the Queen's Window" by Rachel Swirsky, and damn. This novella is the best I've read in awhile, about a lady whose ghostly existence spans millennia. It has already won the Nebula. If I were the gambling type, which I'm not, I would put my money on it for the Hugo, too.
