Sea, Swallow Me and Other Stories

November 2008:
9781590210666 • 204 pp • trade paper/ebook

A finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Speculative Fiction, this collection offers magic and myth mingle in dark and dazzling ways. A tourist meets an African sea god… A 12th century Japanese monk attracts the attention of a mischievous shapeshifter… The Earl King lives in a briar patch on an antebellum plantation… Spirits of the past haunt a young boy on a Southern coastal island…. Gidney turns the familiar strange and the strange familiar in this landmark debut.


Craig Laurance Gidney loves words–sensually, sexually, omnivorously. He streams out floods of them in his stories so that you, too, can taste their deliciousness. He wields them with abandon and precision to create little worlds that rise off the page and engulf you in snow globes of sparkling beauty and perceptiveness. Each story in his latest collection, Sea, Swallow Me and Other Stories, has a strong immersive effect. —the fix Online
