Author(s): Sam Mansell
Set in an ominous underwater world marred by human
destruction, the stories in Mer unsettle traditional mermaid
mythology - beyond gender, beyond beauty, beyond romance.
Merfolk have ruled their watery domain for untold years, but
humans threaten it with deadly danger. Stranded and alone,
Odel haunts an abandoned lake. Ondine drags her prey to a
graveyard of their own making. Unzel pursues a threatening
boat. Nothing left to lose, the merfolk will do whatever it takes
to defend their home - no matter who gets in their way.
In her debut collection, Samantha Amy Mansell weaves a
series of evocative tales about vengeance, loss and the right to survive.
Mer asks not what, but who, lurks in the deep.
