Reaching the Ocean
The house slumped across its lot, a worn-out carcass, stretches of graying, wooden bone exposed. After seven highways and six states, the three of them, Minnow, Momma, and Annabelle, had finally reached Cape Cod, Massachusetts—just as Momma had promised they would. This place was what Great Uncle Tobias called his rental property. Whatever its name, it definitely wasn’t their real home.
“It’s okay, Annabelle.” Clutching the cat to his chest, Minnow stared at the house. He pressed his lips against one of her flattened ears, breathing in her oily, dry-fur scent. But even Annabelle couldn’t disguise the musty odor of rot and saltwater that flooded in from all directions.

What others are saying

"[These stories are] beautiful, they're fresh, and they are painful. This is not an anthology that begs to be read in one sitting; not that it doesn't merit such a binge, but because each story requires a breath between them, and, frankly, deserves to be savored... it never ceases to be a pleasure to read" —Locus Magazine "This anthology offers seriously admirable work. Highly recommended.” —Lightspeed Magazine "24 impressive stories of healing and rebuilding...These hopeful stories offer something for any speculative fiction reader." —Publishers Weekly
