At last I managed to finish the story that Victoria Garcia commissioned at the last STEW crit group--- it took on a life of its own. Starting out as a simple story of an indoor herb gardener, it soon involved radio ankle bracelets, toaster electric cords, sonic pest repellent devices, and rat ghosts the size of microwaves.
Hopefully I will be able to find some publication for this. I don't remember many submission guidelines prohibiting rat ghost stories, but I have doubts about it fitting into any neat genre, either.
Extra low fantasy?
I know--- slipstream!
