I bought this short story on a whim because gay werewolf/merman couple and MERPEOPLE and WERWOLVES and THIS IS EVERYTHING I LIKE.
I laughed out loud many times. I don't much like the whole 'werewolves turn into slathering beasts once a month' that Carriger puts in her werewolf universes, but it's easy enough to overlook due to the humour and the enjoyability of the world she writes in. The merpeople are very interesting--as are the selkies. Like all really good short stories, this one ends with only one thing resolved, and several more threads dangling with possiblity that is only implied. A really great read, I must say, and well worth the dollar I paid for it.
