Staff Reviews


Does COVID have you wishing for a radical change? To our healthcare systems, to our governments, to the way we take care of each other?  The Seep will be a healing journey for you. After aliens called the Seep bond symbiotically with humanity, we begin to experience life from the perspective of every living thing. Dealing with a loss, Trina FastHorse questions her new reality. Will she be able to answer, for herself and for the Seep, what’s left after humanity has solved all of its greatest problems?

The Seep describes a sort of utopia set in a near future devoid of capitalism, violence, and the general evils of the world. Here, everyone and everything (humans! trees! buildings!) is connected through an alien entity called The Seep, and pain of any kind is easily mended. This is an entirely surreal reading experience that explores identity — queer and racial, self and inherited — in an organic and necessary manner. A must-read for everyone.”

Description


"A unique alien invasion story that focuses on the human and the myriad ways we see and don't see our own world. Mesmerizing."
--Jeff VanderMeer

A blend of searing social commentary and speculative fiction, Chana Porter's fresh, pointed debut explores a strange new world in the wake of a benign alien invasion.

Trina FastHorse Goldberg-Oneka is a fifty-year-old trans woman whose life is irreversibly altered in the wake of a gentle--but nonetheless world-changing--invasion by an alien entity called The Seep. Through The Seep, everything is connected. Capitalism falls, hierarchies and barriers are broken down; if something can be imagined, it is possible.

Trina and her wife, Deeba, live blissfully under The Seep's utopian influence--until Deeba begins to imagine what it might be like to be reborn as a baby, which will give her the chance at an even better life. Using Seeptech to make this dream a reality, Deeba moves on to a new existence, leaving Trina devastated.

Heartbroken and deep into an alcoholic binge, Trina follows a lost boy she encounters, embarking on an unexpected quest. In her attempt to save him from The Seep, she will confront not only one of its most avid devotees, but the terrifying void that Deeba has left behind. A strange new elegy of love and loss, The Seep explores grief, alienation, and the ache of moving on.
