This special edition was produced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dead Fishy. This novel-length book contains a collection of short stories about fishing and sex, fishing and murder, fishing and cross-dressing, romance, betrayal, revenge and interesting ways of cooking seafood. If features killer marlin, killer crabs, transcendental lobsters, really quirky people and some rather nice sauvignon blancs. You’ll never look at fishing and the people who fish quite the same way again.
In this book, things lurk just below the surface of the water, in the dark, in the calm, and they get you back… The writing is crisp, the twist in the tales hilarious, the characters all too human. – Herald Sun
