‘Vintage Season’ by C.L. Moore

Travel stories are generally told by the traveler but Catherine Moore, like Joanna Russ (below), Karen Joy Fowler (in ‘Standing Room Only’), and Chuck Berry (in ‘Havana Moon’), takes the touristed’s point of view, the year-rounders rather than the summer people. And what do they all talk about? The tourists, of course; the tourists are news.

Bonus pandemic angle, too.

First published, credited to ‘Lawrence O’Donnell’, in Astounding Science Fiction, September 1946. Reprinted many times since
