This is a story for ADULTS from acclaimed children's writer Laura L. Sullivan.
In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, bathed by the Humboldt currents, lies the island of Kiri Maru. It is a strange and lovely place, where time is so fluid that days and nights merge, but the hours of a new moon are never remembered. The natives had a god once, but he died in a drunken fall. Now the islanders live on luck, generated by the manner of a person's death. Being ripped apart by a wild animal is considered very lucky indeed.
To this island comes a scientist, searching for the elusive giant squid. Instead he finds love in the arms of a young woman, the daughter of a man of Kiri Maru and an American anthropologist.
She ensnares him, body and soul, and wants to bear his child. But first he must become a man of Kiri Maru himself... if the Red Brothers will accept him. Who are the Red Brothers? The man-sized Humboldt squid who haunt the local waters, and are said to be so jealous of human men that they sometimes... well, you'll see.
A MAN OF KIRI MARU is a sexy, scary, sensual story that will transport you.
Be sure to read Laura L. Sullivan's other short stories, including the sly comedies LANA HALLIDAY and AN ARTISTIC TEMPERAMENT.
A MAN OF KIRI MARU was originally published in the spring 2009 edition of GUD Magazine.
