Breakfast in Bed, by Ian Watson

Analog Science Fiction and Fact, July/August 2015; ~3,300 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

Max and Sandra explore the nature of the multiverse in bed together.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The notion that one can learn things about the fundamental nature of reality simply by paying close attention while snuggling is likely to be original.

Obviously the story isn't meant to be taken seriously, but there isn't really much of a story here. Up to the last few paragraphs, it's just them in bed talking mumbo-jumbo. We learn that they did make something happen--something less than ideal--but right at the point we'd be interested to see what they do with this new ability, the story is over.
