“Entangled” by Beston Barnett is a sweet story about romance and self-discovery. The first non-natural born citizen of Earth, a vaguely swan-like alien piloting a fully immersive android body, is looking for an ace romantic partner and wondering what that means for their self and for nature versus nurture. They have never been embodied in their native body, after all, all their senses have always been connected to their earth body through FTL WiFi. #clarkesworld
