A love story set in a world of water, a sea story, sex and love and money stories, sad and happy stories of snow and prehistory. This collection includes stories that have been published in literary magazines and newspapers, and included in international anthologies. The characters are vividly real, the problems they face devastating, and their solutions heartrending or funny or horrifying.
In a story set on a planet inhabited by a mixture of humans who have evolved to live under the sea and invaders who have genetically engineered their bodies, the story of a judicial murder and its consequences are told by a girl on the brink of adolescence, whose forbidden love is one of the factors in the trial. In another story a lover devoted after years travels to the west-of-Ireland town determined to win back the singer he adores, but as he waits for her in her empty house, his longing changes to something more sinister. In an alternative Dublin a wealthy young Muslim, scion of an industrial family, has a life-changing encounter with a prostitute, in a story based on the model of mediaeval love songs. In a world overtaken by ice and snow, a child queen battles bears and takes wolves as her allies to win freedom for her people. For reader safety, these stories should be taken one at a time, like capsules of wonder.

This is a stunning collection of stories by a master-crafts-woman of the written word. What I love about Lucille's writing is the breadth of human experience that it encompasses. Where you or I might fear to go as writers, she rolls up her sleeves and pitches in, writing with authority about all sorts of alien cultures, real and imaginary. This collection of stories - many previously published - includes contemporary stories alongside tales set in the early twentieth century, an alternative (Muslim) Ireland, and a fantastic undersea society. "Water and Wolf", for example, is a charming story about a young woman who not only survives the most severe hardships, but triumphs over her enemies - a kickass heroine of pre-history. "Fish" is my personal favorite, although "Love" comes a close second. Highly recommended. Watch out for more from this talented writer/journalist/editor.

Stories to stay with you

The stories in this wonderful collection are heartbreaking, chilling or playful, all threaded with tremendous authority and wisdom. My favourite is `Fish', which features the occupants of a kitchen aquarium on a doomed ocean liner: "Later, as the ship's electric lights continued to burn below the sea, the fish swam away. They could not hear the roar like the sound of a football crowd which rose from the people in the water ..." That's just one example of Lucille Redmond's powerful and haunting economy of style - she doesn't waste a single word. This collection repays careful reading; these stories will stay with you. Highly recommended.
