Selkie Summer Ken MacLeod
Siobhan Ross has several reasons for taking a holiday job on the Isle of Skye – her keen interest in marine biology for one – but she’s also determined to escape Glasgow and put distance between herself and a failed relationship with fellow student Kieran.
The last thing Siobhan’s looking for is romance, let alone with a Selkie, but…
In Selkie Summer, Ken MacLeod delivers a rich contemporary fantasy steeped in Celtic lore, nuclear submarines and secrets, as Siobhan finds herself unwittingly embroiled in political intrigue and the uncertain landscape of international alliances. At its heart, Selkie Summer is a love story: as passionate and unconventional as you could wish for.
