    Miette, this may be oneof your most obscure yet. Can you tell us where you found this story? I’d live to read more Azorin.

    Sweet little story.

    Okay, my suggestions for summer reading — mostly fantasies alas:
    Avilion by Robert Holdstock

    If you like fantasy and if you like the beach and mermaid urban fantasy: Seaborn by Chris Seaborn

    There’s The Ten Thousand by Paul Kearney.

    There’s also my book: Wind Follower. If you like fantasy, romance, and tribal folklore.

    If you like modern Korean romance,
    Tongue by Kyung-Ran Jo

    Bitter Chocolate by Carol Off is also pretty good, if you’re into the politics of chocolate.

    Wow, a million fantastic thanks to Carole! It’s always a little bit of bliss to find out who’s -really- listening, and I’ll definitely check out your book. The chocolate book has been on my longlist for a while, but I haven’t dared crack it yet. Chocolate’s just about the last thing on earth that’s -not- depressing, after all.

    Shady: It’s great, isn’t it? I haven’t found much in English (this story came from an anthology of world fiction). If you read Spanish I can hook you up; otherwise, I’ll extend the question. Somebody Help Shady Find Some Azorin, For The Love Of All Things Not Yet Depressing…
