    Another excellent Paula Guran anthology This time thoroughly exploring the breadth of folklore and mythos surrounding water based entities rusalka, selkies, mer, nereids, et al Whereas vampires often personify passion and sex, and zombies claw at the very definition of humanity, these creatures often personify longing, dysmorphia and gender dysphoria Creatures with a foot is two worlds rarely fully sync with both and that discomfit makes for great story telling There are a few stories of science [...]

    So normally, I am not into a book of short stories Why when I love Stephen King stories so much Because I ve come to love the full length tales but with this book I was not disappointed There s nothing terrifying than the things that may or may not lurk beneath the glassy surface of our oceans Picture In Mermaids and Other Mysteries of the Deep, put together by editor, Paula Guran, popular authors like Neil Gaiman, Elizabeth Bear, Caitlin R Kieran and so many put together stories of sirens, n [...]

    A good and varied selection of treatments of this theme I can think of a couple of approaches which didn t come up and which might be worth a punt for the second volume if there is one however the stories that stuck most for me were the ones where the theme was treated most obliquely As someone else has said it is unfortunate that the overall tenor of the book is rather downbeat perhaps that is the nature of merfolk, that they are tragic creatures at least when they try to interact with humans o [...]

    As a fan of mermaids and other water dwelling spirits, I found this collection delightful Stories ranged from horror through fairy tale retellings, and hit interesting beats in between The shorts were pleasantly diverse in terms of romance and gender, even offering a nice gender fluid piece, and after a time it became a game to spot the mythical creature before the story explicitly introduced them.Highlights include the body modded submarine mermaid brigade, the eerie atmosphere of the selkie is [...]

    Paula Guran s name on a cover always catches my attention as I was a subscriber to her horror newsletter many, many years ago The collection she edits here is eclectic and wide ranging giving us visions of Mermaids both traditional and futuristic, although it does lean to the darker side than some readers might be comfortable with Still the stories invoke thought and can lead to an examination of both our relationship with nature, the unknown, and ourselves.

    A number of the stories in this collection are stellar The only real problem is that it turns out there aren t actually that many mermaid stories to be told while almost all of these would come off as thoughtful and creative in a less homogeneous context, when read back to back, the archetypes get a little threadbare.

    Overall an excellent anthology A few clunkers but those were than balanced by generally good stories and a few that had some really interesting twists on mermaids and ties to aquatic creatures Some of the images were deeply disturbing and creepy.

    Read this exclusively while in the bathtub and I can t imagine any other way to do it Like any anthology, it s a big mixed bag of pretty good and I can t wait until this story is done It s at least unique compared to other mermaid fiction you find, takes advantage of the mythology it has and will, at times, subvert the tropes It s at the least fun and worth a read if someone is so inclined for mermaid stories I ll admit, I was sad when it was done.

    This collection keeps you on your toes the whole time Never knowing what the end will be

    Interesting collection of short stories, some captivating than others, like Neil Gaiman for example Not a bad way to pass the time and might look into Paula Guran s short story catalogue.

    I struggled with this book Each of the short stories is truly a well written masterpiece I enjoyed each of them for their individuality I m also a marine biologist and I find that the mystery of mermaids is something I want to believe in HOWEVER, it took me forever to get through this book despite the great stories Simply put, it was too dark I understand that selkies, mermaids, etc all have some mysterious, dark origins, but they are also tied to many light hearted romances and children s stori [...]

    All of the stories in this book were well written The ratings below are mainly based on plot and how interesting I thought they were As a whole, I liked how the stories came together to create an eerie and mystical mood But, obviously, some were better than others Swell Driftglass The Sea Change Miss Carstairs and the Mermaid Sea Hearts The Drowned Mermaid Abyssus Abyssum Invocat Each to Each Somewhere Beneath the Waves Was Her Home Salt Wine The Mermaid of the Concrete Ocean Flotsam The Mermaid [...]

    I m not really a fan of short stories I generally enjoy a longer, in depth story Which is why I usually stick to novels However this collection is about mermaids, and that fascinates me and it has stories by a lot of well known and many of my favorite authors My favorites were Swell , Miss Carstairs and the Merman Each to Each Salt Wine and Forever, Miss Tapekwa County However, there weren t any of the stories that I disliked The writing is all very well done, and all of the stories are unique [...]

    I won this book through GoodReads First Read program.I would have loved to put a stringer through the mermaids gills and secured them to the bank while I looked for something better.Not a big fan of short stories to begin with If they were really good stories the author would convert them to a book Also not a big fantasy fiction fan Nevertheless, I thought I would give it a try I read a storydidn t enjoy Thought to myself, That is the good thing about short stories is that the next one will prob [...]

    Like most anthologies, this one is a mixed bag with different stories likely to appeal to different readers It delivers on the premise, though, with underrepresented things like the rusalka and selkie filling in the edges around a plentiful collection of mermaid stories, and I ve come away with a few new ideas.

    Mirta
    It is the first book of collected stories where the stories are well related to the subject and also good stories The selection was good, not as other books where the selection wasn t harmonious and seemed chosen randomly.

    Sally Epp
    Some of the stories were quite good, but the tone of the entire anthology was a bit too one note Mermaid stories don t ALL have to be downers.

    Laurie
    As with any anthology Some of the stories are great and some are very much not so great.

    Belinda Lewis
    Solid anthology with some very pretty stories.

    Joanna
    There was some lagging interest there because the theme was reasonably tight But there were some real neat takes as well.

    erika
    I think my favorites were Swell, Miss Carstairs and the Mermaid and Margritte s Secret Agent Not all good or interesting but glad to have read

    Burma Turner
    I won this book from first reads.I really liked this book I found it to be very original and entertaining My favorites were A Good Husband and Sea Hearts, but they were all good.

    Nicole
    Took my time reading this dropping in and out of the stories.
