Just thought I’d share this very nice review of Her Magical Pet over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.
It’s really positive about the anthology overall, and here’s what the reviewer had to say about “Beach Dirt on Bare Feet”:
‘Beach Dirt on Bare Feet’ by Louise Long, is an F/F selkie story and I loved it. It had a really strong sense of place and feel of the sea about it, and I loved that the story explored the ambivalence and well-earned lack of trust a selkie might feel towards humans. It felt very much in dialogue with the old selkie tales, and it just really, really worked for me. Also, I loved Morvoren’s reaction to tasting human food for the first time – especially ice cream.
Just in case you were considering buying a copy and any of this helps sway you, of course…
