Overview

THE MONSTROUS SEA is a bewitching collection of young adult short stories, ranging from science fiction and fantasy to paranormal, all featuring a lesbian heroine. This collection is part of Project Unicorn, a fiction project that seeks to address the near nonexistence of lesbian main characters in young adult fiction by giving them their own stories.

This collection contains:

- A History of Drowning (Paranormal)
A girl with dark eyes and a strange, white dress follows Carrie over a series of small tragedies.

- Melusine (Paranormal)
Melusine bears an ancestral curse–when water touches her, she becomes a monster that no one must ever see…but when Mel risks everything to rescue a girl from drowning, the family’s dark secret changes her forever.

- No Bigger Than the Moon (Horror)
Anne would do anything for Kylie. But when Kylie’s brother changes into a bloodthirsty monster, she goes too far in asking Anne for help…

- In the Garden I Did Not Sin (Dark Fantasy)
When Meno, the daughter of Eve, watches her mother–the first woman–die, she journeys back to that thing which Eve loved most, the Garden of Eden. But she didn’t expect to meet a stranger there…

- Two Salt Feet (Paranormal)
You can buy anything at the meat market…even a mermaid. Sam’s errand for her mom takes a turn for the strange when she accidentally rescues a mermaid who would rather not end up on someone’s plate.

- Daughter of Blue (Magic Realism)
At the urging of her friend, Leila--a Wiccan--casts a spell to attract love into her life. A strange dream involving a being from the sea then seems to seal the spell...

- The Mermaid Circus (Magic Realism)
Raised in a family of "career mermaids" who perform underwater to crowds of mermaid believers, Annalee wants nothing more than to leave the Mermaid Circus behind. One afternoon on a beach with a pretty girl inspires her to go for her dreams.

- Bluebottles (Magic Realism)
After spending several heartbroken, landlocked months away, Ramie returns to the sea and is inspired to follow a trail of bioluminescent creatures.

- Pearls Enough (Fantasy)
Portia, recently orphaned, feels constrained in her older sister’s house and finds herself longing for a sea-change…and a mermaid’s kiss.

- Breaking the Ice (Fantasy)
Born in a frozen land, a fierce, orphaned girl is alone but not lonely--until she glimpses a lovely face gazing at her from beneath the ice.
