Pen America 19

Over the summer, Serge Brussolo’s novel The Deep Sea Diver’s Syndrome was excerpted in the latest issue of PEN America, No. 19: Hauntings.

It also received a nice new review at

The travelling-into-dreams trope has long been a prominent, and problematic, staple of horror and science fiction. This French novel, originally published in 1992, is a stellar example of the format–and, I feel, an overall standout in the field of imaginative fiction. Kudos to Melville House, and translator Edward Gauvin, for putting out this better-late-than-never English language version…

… [V]arious strands are neatly intertwined in a haunting yet satisfying conclusion, in which we’re introduced to yet another facet of the novel’s bizarre reality, which comes to encompass not only dreams and reality but also life, death and beyond.

Where am I?
