Praise

Advance Praise of The Sea Beast Takes a Lover

The Sea Beast Takes a Lover is a treasury of fantastic tales–full of mermaids, prophetic dancing bears, exploding children, and distraught time travelers. It’s also a collection of longing, of loss, of loving deeply, and of learning what it means to care for others. A brilliant book, daring and wonderful.” –Alexander Weinstein, author of Children of the New World 

The Sea Beast Takes a Lover sits on a small shelf of books that I will read a dozen times over.  It is full of explosions of magic, aching tenderness and star-bright writing. This is a book that will make you want to tap the person next to you and say, ‘I’m sorry to interrupt, but you have to hear this.’”  –Ramona Ausubel, author of Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty and A Guide to Being Born

“Andreasen has a big, roomy imagination, and a command of language to furnish the worlds he creates with both precision and grandeur. These stories are, by turns, timeless and urgent, dreamy and nightmarish, heartbroken and hopeful. A brilliant collection.” -Charles Yu, author of Sorry Please Thank You and How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

The Sea Beast Takes a Lover is such a wildly imaginative work that the book itself could be an artifact drawn from one of the sui generis stories it contains. Uncannily inventive yet unfailingly grounded in all-too-familiar struggles of the heart, these are stories that vary widely in subject matter–paternal pressures, the terror of stasis, our jealous hunger for love–but never in the confident distinctiveness of Michael Andreasen’s voice. What a voice it is! What a vision! For what is more exciting to a reader than discovering a new way to see the world? This thrillingly original debut gives us just that in every story, on every page.” — Josh Weil, author of The Age of Perpetual Light
