The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe by Kij Johnson is terrific

$2.99 at Amazon:

Professor Vellitt Boe teaches at the prestigious Ulthar Women’s College. When one of her most gifted students elopes with a dreamer from the waking world, Vellitt must retrieve her.
Sort of a cross between Frodo's early adventures upon leaving the shire and The Graveyard Book. I frequently stopped and reread passages because I enjoyed them so much.
