Dear Creature by Jonathan Case Dark Horse Tor

‘Dear Creature’ by Jonathan Case, originally published in 2011 but re-published in 2016 by Dark Horse, is Saturday’s Smaller Press book (ok ok, Dark Horse is not small, but for more small press picks, see yesterday’s episode!) Paul talks about Case’s craft in pulling together a strange and beautiful story about a sea monster and his Shakespeare-fueled love. After meeting Jonathan Case at a signing, Paul is inspired to offer a rare Halloween recommendation, and finds the book lovely and alarmingly weird. Let’s dig deep.
