Selkie Summer

by Ken MacLeod

Siobhan Ross has several reasons for taking a holiday job on the Isle of Skye – her keen interest in marine biology for one – but she’s also determined to escape Glasgow and put distance between herself and a failed relationship with fellow student Kieran.   

The last thing Siobhan’s looking for is romance, let alone with a Selkie, but…  

In Selkie Summer, Ken MacLeod delivers a rich contemporary fantasy that is steeped in Celtic lore, nuclear submarines and secrets, as Siobhan finds herself the focus of attention she never sought, unwittingly embroiled in political intrigue and the shifting landscape of international alliances. At its heart, Selkie Summer is a love story: as passionate and unconventional as you could wish for.  

“Ken MacLeod is a smooth professional and the words flow beautifully... Another small triumph from Newcon Press.” – SFcrowsnest

“The whole tale is told with wry amusement and an affection for the place, the people and the stories of the west coast of Scotland which delivers a perfect shot of pleasure.” – Interzone

“Genre-historically, this kind of naturalized-supernatural belongs to the lineage of the 1940s pulp Unknown Worlds, which published Heinlein’s “The Devil Makes the Law” and the rationalized fantasies of L. Sprague de Camp & Fletcher Pratt and Fritz Leiber. It is also, as it heads toward its interspecies-intrigue finish, a sharply detailed observation of the people and the physical and social environment of the Hebrides, covering everything from wearables to weather to B&B duties to pub atmospherics to the contents of tidal pools.” – Locus

“Well recommended and very enjoyable.” – LibraryThing
