Ep. 28: The Seafarer's Kiss by Julia Ember

In the third week of our Little Mermaid Month, we read The Seafarer's Kiss by Julia Ember! This 2017 novel tells the story of Ersel, a mermaid living in frozen seas far north, who becomes entangled in the tricky dealings of the Norse god Loki. Among other things, we discuss the question of how much of a classic story must remain intact for a new version to still be a retelling, not just as it relates to this novel but also as it relates to an outlandish statement that the musical Grease is a retelling of The Little Mermaid!Music: Through The Woods by Shane Ivers - https://www.silvermansound.com
