'Selkie Stories Are for Losers' by Sofia Samatar

An excerpt from The New Voices of Fantasy 2017 collection.

"I hate selkie stories. They're always about how you went up to the attic to look for a book, and you found a disgusting old coat and brought it downstairs between finger and thumb and said "What's this?", and you never saw your mom again." ◆
