San Diego Lightfoot Sue
In the early 1960s, a naive teenager from Kansas moves to Los Angeles, where he falls in love with a former prostitute.
The story has been cited as an example of the idea that magic can be dangerous to the wielder if incorrectly performed (when the prostitute casts a spell to rejuvenate herself so that the teenager can see what she looked like when she was his age, she is "consumed by green fire"), and as evidence that Reamy was, if not gay himself, then "remarkably familiar with the gay idiom of the time".
