Indrapramit Das, "Here Comes Your Man" in Screams From the Dark, ed. Ellen Datlow (Tor Publishing Group: 2022).

Even the nice monsters are still monstrous! And in a monster's world, the nice guys still worship the god of masculinity and fundamentally misunderstand even their own emotions, not to mention others. See, I even made the story about him

There are plenty of other paradoxes and tensions that feed the horror of being human on full display in this story. Two that stand out: Aditya's weakness is that he doesn't want to be weak. And in the end, we see that Megha fears that the man she fears isn't there.
