About this ebook

“It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. 
We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea--whether it is to sail or to watch it--we are going back from whence we came.”
- John F. Kennedy

Underwater cities, lost civilizations, crops, climate change, and dead zones.
In this collection of ocean-themed stories, twelve of today’s top speculative fiction writers explore our morality, our built-in societal restraints, and reflect upon our state of grace.

The waves roll in, the waves roll out.

This anthology of short stories was a blast to read. All had a general ocean theme but how it was important to the story differed greatly. Some were fantasy, futuristic and some more dystopian in theme. I liked them all. I read it in one sitting as I kept saying one more before I stop. Great for a lunch time read. The authors views of the ocean were all unique. I enjoyed reading all of the short stories although I admit to liking some more then others. The first story was a blast. I recommend getting this anthology if you like short stories that are well written and a surprise when a new one begins.

Love short stories and this anthology did not disappoint. Enough different timelines and even genres to avoid any similarities; impressive.
