1) Annalee Newitz published a sci-fi story, “The Gravity Fetishist,” in the webzine Flurb. Excerpt:

“Follow me.” Ahmed held out a hand, fingers spread to admit Chris’ between them. Down more stairs, and at last through a heavy door into a dimly-lit room full of benches and harnesses ringed with ornate gravity bulbs. In one harness, a woman struggled to lift her long, slim legs – a low-gravity body fighting forces it could not withstand. In a corner, a man on all fours crawled toward a barrel-chested Earth man, nearly unable to propel himself forward. The Earther let out a theatrical laugh and flicked a whip at the man, now groveling under gravity’s tug.
