The Sea Beast takes a Lover by Michael Andreasen

By Michael Andreasen

A lovesick kraken slowly drags the article of its wish – a boat of sailers – into the ocean; a bunch of cantankerous saints materialise in a well-appointed parlour, and needs to resolve the secret of the way they obtained there; ageing fathers are sunk to the ground of the sea in pressure-sealed crates in a time-honoured ritual.

Michael Andreasen's tales romp throughout the lunatic and surreal with a young beneficiant ease; there's a joyous absurdity to every premise. simply because a sister is born with out a head doesn't suggest her brother will not love and defend her; simply because an adulterous tryst leads to alien abduction does not imply the fellow does not leave out his spouse.

An tremendous humorous, very bizarre, brilliantly built set of news, from a fascinating younger author.
