Little Gods, by Tim Pratt
This was a quick one, so I am right back. Little Gods had a Nebula nomination for best short story in 2002. And it's a solid entry. A well-used premise--a man whose wife is tragically killed interacts with supernatural beings, maybe to get her back--but it's done quite well. With a nice happy ending that was quite appropriate for Valentine's Day. Slices of life make good short story material, so while I can't say I've added to my knowledge of SF literary devices etc., it was a nice read. Would be for you too. I give it three stars, with a pat.
