Everyone has their eyes set on the black depths of space … but what about the deep abysses of the ocean? What dark monsters swim unseen beneath the waves? What ancient wonders lie hidden, waiting to be discovered? What sirens call, either here on Earth or in the icy waters of a far off planet … or even at the bottom of a wine glass?

Participated in Kickstarter.
Its truly hard to give any anthology 5 stars because the chances of liking every story is almost nil. That said I give this Anthology 4.5 stars. Did I like every story? No. But I liked more than 3/4 of the stories. ZNB publishing does it again with Editors SC Butler and Joshua Palmatier. They chose some outstanding talent and a huge variety of Underwater tales; from straight up fantasy, to horror, to ecological apocalypses, to Space exploration and beyond. Some Authors really stood out to me: Bill K'tepi 's story is by far my favorite, it is truly the kind of story i wish I would write. Sara M. Harvey's story is very politically/socially important to our world. For just a fun romance Susan Jett needs to be mentioned. And for a real world magic James Van Pelt's story is incredible.This is the perfect Anthology for those times you want to escape and don't have time for getting caught up in a Novel: A Bathroom book or a Sunday morning over coffee. If short stories speculative fiction are your thing I truly believe you will not be disappointed by this one.
A really neat collection of stories with some real gems, both fantasy and sci-fi. Everything from alien creatures in a hot spring to Cthulhu taking over the galaxy from an alien sea. Very fun. "The Byssus Woman" is an especial favorite about a trans woman finding acceptance in the sea.
An anthology of short stories that take place under water.An excellent selection of stories. Some are Sci-fi, some are Fantasy, some are horror but all are at least good if not excellent.
