A beautiful book I will cherish forever in my book collection.

And one I know I will be re-reading again and again.

Especially, my favorite of the 33 stories within, *The Skin of Her Skin* by Camille Alexa. And though I'm sure I will expand on it later, in brief I will tell you that my Leisa-boo and I now make use of the word bjarga on as many occasions as possible! Just because we both love to say it!

:)

*I hope to write a better, longer review, eventually.

For such a broad, somewhat random theme -- "What secrets belong only to a fish?" -- editors Cuinn and Taylor have curated an impressively cohesive anthology, offering a diverse variety of fables, allegories, and good old fashioned short stories that surprise, delight, and, in a few cases, inspire. Among my favorites were Polenth Blake's “Thwarting the Fiends;” Camille Alexa's “The Skin of Her Skin;” Paul A. Dixon's “One Let Go;” Sam Fleming's “What the Water Gave Her;” Bear Weiter's “The Talking ...more

Review to come, but my general opinion of Dagan Books remains: there's not a single prompt or concept they can't develop into a brilliant book. Effortless, dream-like, diverse and exquisite.

Edit: Here is the LONG, LONG review of the anthology.

After reading Cthulhurotica, the first editorial work by Carrie Cuinn I had encountered, I knew I had found an editor I’d follow into any and every project she would involve herself in. Why? It’s fairly simple. Cuinn doesn’t edit, but rather throws hersel

Mannetje, mannetje Timpe Te,

Very proud of this collection, coming soon from Dagan Books. Fish stories, beautiful ones, from beautiful authors. Fantasy, science fiction, fairy tales, contemporary--it's all magic, though.

I needed a break from reading the intense Mazalan series, and thought that I might as well give Fish by Carrie Cuinn a try since I saw it on one of my friend's "to-read" bookshelves.

This book basically contains an entire series of anthologies about fish. It's a simple and broad theme, really, but one that I found to be effective.

Some of the anthologies include the classic tale of the fisherman and his wife, magical fishes and a self-absorbed eel. Basically, everything fish. It has mythology, fai

Many of these stories are slight and insubstantial, but many are also wonderfully strange and rich, covering a myriad ways to interpret the theme of fish. I realised, while reading it, just how many of the stories I read and was told as a child actually involved fish, and the sea.
