Frozen Fluid

In a Mythic Antarctica (but one resonant with our current climate crisis), two scientists study glaciers and whales. When a third phytoplankton scientist arrives—Tay, who identifies as nonbinary—Herman and Terra begin to confront their own ideas of gender and their control of the natural world. As things unravel for all three of them, a new world begins to take shape—one where gender, identity, religion, climate, and time itself become new, expansive, and free of human interference.
