Memesis

by Keith Brooke
Release date: 2010
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, fantasy, short stories

A world where islands of rock float on a molten sea, a man whose son flies high while he can only watch, a seaside town held together by the belief of its inhabitants. Eight stories about strange changes and the strangely changed, each with a new afterword by the author of Publishers Weekly starred novels Genetopia and The Accord.

"I have read 'Beside the Sea' perhaps four or five times since its original publication... It's a magical fantasy, a parable in the form of a rite-of-passage story, both frightening and bizarre... It's a story I come back to again and again, and one which I wish I had written myself - and there can be no greater recommendation than that." - Eric Brown

"It is wiser about youth and imagination than most other novels published today; and everybody, of whatever age, should read it..." - Adam Roberts on The Unlikely World of Faraway Frankie
