What kind of sea change in our ideals might we need to refashion our world for the better?

Lyle is a young man who hates his life in the State of Salt, a cultural and literal desert. He vandalizes a State icon, then swallows a poison pill that transports him not to death, but to a liminal realm—blue, aquatic, and wholly alien.

He’s rescued and shepherded by henchmen of the Polyp, god of the oceanic world they call “heaven.” A series of encounters unfolds between Lyle and the monstrous, seductive god, who gradually reveals his grandeur and mysterious purpose.

Lyle is horrified at first but soon finds himself falling for the Polyp, and the potent and bizarre creative potential he represents . . .

Whimsical and outlandish but also timely and dead serious, Arms from the Sea navigates allegorical realms of possibility, pointing to what it might mean to redeem a desolate world.

Arms from the Sea is a tangible encounter with the creative spirit. A guide for reconstructing our understanding of water and our origins.”
—Moses Hacmon
