Madeleine, by Amal El-Mohtar
Madeline is my first read in the Nebula Short Story category this year. And it's a nice fun one. A woman who participated in a drug trial has extremely realistic flashbacks to earlier periods of her life, in which a stranger appears to her. Anyone who remembers the 70's has a decent chance of having had this happen to them. OTOH that leaves out a lot of people. So it is at least a little fresh again. Give it 3 stars for being nominated.
