Something strange is happening in the seaside town of Bareneed. Mythical creatures are being pulled from the sea, perfectly preserved corpses of long-lost villagers are washing up on the shore, and residents of the town are suddenly overcome by a mysterious illness that is making them forget how to breathe.

Kenneth J. Harvey's books are published in twelve countries. In Canada, The Town That Forgot How to Breathe won the Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award. Harvey's works have also been nominated for the Books in Canada First Novel Award and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. He lives with his family in an outport of Newfoundland, Canada...
