Depart, Depart!

A Cli-Fi Ghost Story Debut

A flood. A ghost. A question of loyalty.

When an unprecedented hurricane devastates the city of Houston, Noah Mishner finds shelter in the Dallas Mavericks’ basketball arena. Though he finds community among other queer refugees, Noah fears his trans and Jewish identities put him at risk with certain “capital-T” Texans. His fears take form when he starts seeing visions of his great-grandfather Abe, who fled Nazi Germany as a boy. As the climate crisis intensifies and conditions in the shelter deteriorate, Abe’s ghost grows more powerful. Ultimately, Noah must decide whether he can trust his ancestor — and whether he’s willing to sacrifice his identity and community in order to survive.

Sim Kern is a speculative fiction writer living in Houston, Texas. They have stories in Metaphorosis, The Colored Lens, and Wizards in Space Magazine.
