David Almond says of this unique collection, "Stories are living things, creatures that move and grow in the imaginations of writer and reader. They must be solid and touchable, like the land, and must have fluid half-known depths, like the sea. These stories take place in a real world - but in fiction, real worlds merge with dream worlds. Real people walk with ghosts and figments. Earthly truth goes hand-in-hand with watery lies." Stories include: "The Missing Link", "Joe Quinn's Poltergeist", "Harry Miller's Run", "Slog's Dad", "Klaus Vogel and the Bad Lads", "May Malone", "Half a Creature from the Sea" and "When God Came to Cathleen's Garden".
