Cover art for SALMON

Sebastian Castillo


Shabby Doll House

A young poet travels to a mysterious country named SALMON to escape “the dailiness of life” but his plan is thwarted by derelict trains, ambivalent pirates, and a deity-like mushroom that seems to disappear the world one object at a time.

Sebastian Castillo’s madcap, surreal novella, SALMON is a modern picaresque for the back pocket.

“Peculiar… ambitious… a compelling voice” - Ottessa Moshfegh
