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.

Praise for Sebastian Castillo

"Broken-down time machine-esque. Feels like it was written any time in the past or future 100 years."

- Mark Leidner

"Sebastian Castillo's writing is surprising, charming and formally innovative."

- Chelsea Hodson

"Peculiar... ambitious... a compelling voice"

- Ottessa Moshfegh

"He makes literature seem a sustainable and attainable practice, as marvelous as basic grammar or tap water."

- Wayne Koestenbaum

"Sebastian Castillo invokes a logical illogic wherein nothing is untrue or impossible, secrets have secrets, and any sentence can change the world."

-Blake Butler
