By Michael Andreasen
A lovesick kraken slowly drags the thing of its wish – a boat of sailers – into the ocean; a gaggle of cantankerous saints materialise in a well-appointed parlour, and needs to get to the bottom of the secret of ways they obtained there; growing older 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 shield her; simply because an adulterous tryst leads to alien abduction does not imply the fellow does not omit his spouse.
An super humorous, very bizarre, brilliantly built set of reports, from an attractive younger author.
