A very strange, surreal, dream-like story – you finish reading it, and think to yourself, as you do after some dreams, just where on Earth did that come from?
A beach is the setting for the story, with the media and the public gathering on a daily basis to watch people foraging on the shoreline. The foraging is a dangerous business, and Gran has been doing it for many years. There’s something to be found, and it’s a sort of panning for gold, except that they’re looking for something called ‘core’ and it’s about the lost godhood. I might well come back to this after a few weeks for a re-read.
