Lane doesn't understand why people have such a hard time following directions. All these paintings are clearly marked "DO NOT TOUCH" for a reason.

Ever wished you could traipse through Monet's garden or feel the warmth of Van Gogh's Starry Night? Maybe ayou can.
A near-perfect jewel of a story.
Do Not Touch is for people who...

...enjoy stand alone short stories
...have always been suspicious of paintings in museums subtle romances
...have always wanted to travel back in time French, France, and Moulin Rouge
...have neon blue panties
...have wondered "What if?"

Do Not Touch was a free book I read on Tor's website on June 26, 2013 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.
Short Story. Lane works in a museum. When visitors go missing and can't be found in the building, it's his job to retrieve them. From the paintings they fell into.

Interesting premise, likable characters, humor, romance, colorful world-building, and even some light art history. Recommended.

This was just a perfect short sci-fantasy story; I laughed, I clutched my pearls, I wished I was inside a Seurat painting. Just lovely, one of the more delightful things I read this year.
Another short story

Liked this one, the characterization was perfect and the premise was interesting, if not very original.
Slipping into paintings? There is good novel potential here, I think. Great story, too short.
