More FISH: New Interview and Review

First, the review. Says Guy Gonzalez:

For such a broad, somewhat random theme — “What secrets belong only to a fish?” — editors Cuinn and Taylor have curated an impressively cohesive anthology, offering a diverse variety of fables, allegories, and good old fashioned short stories that surprise, delight, and, in a few cases, inspire. Among my favorites were Polenth Blake’s “Thwarting the Fiends;” Camille Alexa’s “The Skin of Her Skin;” Paul A. Dixon’s “One Let Go;” Sam Fleming’s “What the Water Gave Her;” Bear Weiter’s “The Talking Fish of Shangri-La;” and, Tracie McBride’s “The Touch of Taniwha.” My absolute favorite, though, was Suzanne Palmer’s “Lanternfish In the Overworld;” its perfect tone and ending should really have made it the final story in the collection, so save it for last. Recommended.

Next, Charles Tan, the Bibliophile Stalker, has interviewed editor Carrie Cuinn for SF Signal. They talked about the evolution of FISH, the challenges of running a small press, and more.

From the interview:

CT: Why do you think we need stories like these? If you weren’t editing Fish (i.e. another publisher was soliciting from you), what’s the appeal for you of contributing to this themed anthology?

CC: We always need stories like these. Life is hard. It’s rarely what we expected it to be, and there’s so much dark and gloom. We can’t get rid of it, so I don’t try to pretend it isn’t there. Instead, I look for what’s beautiful in between the bad things, or alongside sadness or grief. Delightful, surprising, moments are always there, whether we see them or not, but life is easier when we take the time to look. There is always something or someone to love, if you let life creep in. The stories in Fish are just like that: sad, dark, and scary, with surprising moments of beauty, joy, and life.

I know what story I would have written, if I were contributing to a project like this. It would be different from anything we did publish, but similar in feeling to Blake and Fleming’s work. I would have wanted to show that flashing underside, the brightness in a dark sea. It would have been about my son, and the things I lost when I got to know him.

And the things I gained.

New! Lower Price on FISH in Print: Now only $13.99

We’ve lowered the price on our latest anthology. FISH is now available in print for $13.99. Amazon is even running a sale, which means that you can buy it today for only $12.49! We’re getting great reviews:

April 26, 2013 – “If the rest of the anthology is as clever and confounding as Polenth Blake’s opener, “Thwarting the Fiends,” I may have found a new favorite publisher.” – Guy L. Gonzalez, Library Journal

March 20, 2013 – “FISH is a genre-bending anthology that includes fantasy, science fiction, fable, and myths among its thirty-three stories. These stories are mostly short, with varying tones as well as genres. Together, they take on the rather broad titular topic in individual and idiosyncratic ways, often only obliquely, and sometimes rather explicitly.” Paul Weimer, SF Signal

March 8, 2013 – “The stories found within show the versatility of the genres collected under the umbrella of speculative fiction. Cuinn and Taylor have gathered together an interesting and talented bunch of authors and created a memorable reading experience.” – A Fantastical Librarian

 “I describe Fish as effortless, dream-like, diverse and exquisite, which certainly holds true as I consider the anthology to be a revelation, because it’s just fish. No restrictions upon genre, no neatly defined prompt to cater to specific tastes. It’s just you and the stories and the fish. Simple and yet so risky. As you read Fish, you step further into a dark and undisturbed ocean where you see reflected light dance across scales and experience ink-black beauty with sharp teeth.” – Haralambi Markov, Alternative Typewriter
