Midweek Fiction: Maria Dahvana Headley, "Seeräuber"

One of the things I love best about offering fiction recommendations is introducing someone to a new favorite story, or writer. It's like literary matchmaking, with absolutely no risk that I'll have to wear a bridesmaid's dress at any point.

The piece of literary matchmaking that I am most pleased by is introducing Maria Dahvana Headley's wonderful short story, "Seeräuber," to William Schafer, who bought it for the Winter 2012 issue of Subterranean Online. I am equally happy to introduce it to you.
