The seventh release in our stand-alone novella series.
How does the government react when confronted with a vast influx of displaced people fleeing the horror of war? It's a dilemma that tests both resources and humanitarian commitment to the limit, but in the end will it be compassion or self-interest that prevails?
Of course, the issue is only complicated further by the fact that the displaced are merfolk, a race many had discounted as myth...
In Fish! Ida Keogh, winner of the 2021 BSFA Award for short fiction, delivers a powerful narrative in a compact form, a story that entertains from start to finish but also asks serious questions regarding tolerance and prejudice.
The mosaic structure of the story enables us to experience the unfolding situation from a variety of viewpoints, providing an intimate perspective on world-changing events, skillfully condensing the macro to a far more personal level.
Fish! is available as a numbered limited edition hardback, signed by the author, and an A5 paperback.
