When I was a teenager, I subscribed to several SF magazines (Analog, Asimov, Omni) but eventually lost the taste for short stories. As I've followed the Chronos stories from one anthology to another, I've regained my taste for this style of collection. Thanks to all the authors!
What a wonderfully imaginative, creatively speculative, multi-author collection! I loved it! I was intrigued by the title, as I have been an aficionado of the Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic sub-genres for nearly six decades, and because over the last couple of years that interest has focused on rising sea levels, climate change, and Lovecraftian apocalypses. I found plenty to gratify my intrigue here, and OCEANS: THE ANTHOLOGY has found a place on my special rereader shelf. You can't go wrong here, as there is much from which to choose, all of it guaranteed to stretch the imagination.
Tide Sweeping by P K Tyler – That portrays Jasja a young sweeper who keeps the last ocean and leads the offering ceremony for this twenty years that will chose the next sweeper for Jasja to train. But there is always more to a story than I am willing to tell so you will need to read it to find all the exciting, and wonderful parts.
Siren Song of the Mississippi by Hank Garner – Is another wonder story that will call to you from the gulf and tell you of its history and wonder as it did to Will’s sister Gabby, oh how dolphins only try to root us to the real world but our minds know the truth no matter what.
Aquagenic by Will Swardstrom – show what happens when an amnesia patient who is allergic to water befriends a nurse and they both can’t stand their current situation and go for a change one a bit more extreme than the other as Cora, the patient, does everything she can to find out who she is.
Full Circle: A CHRONOS story by Rysa Walker – Madi lives in 2136 but when she stumbles across a CHRONOS key she accidentally travels back in time and ends up at the bottom of the ocean and almost kills herself in the process, lucky for her one of the people that finds her can help her get back home.
There are plenty more stories by many more great authors and all well written with ocean thymes, I wish I had half the imagination these authors have as I was so captivated not only by the character and places, but also by the tales, lore and meaning that each story had, it was so awesome. I love these anthologies as I always find new authors this way and that was true of this one as well.
Being a huge fan of Rysa Walker's, I immediately flipped to her story, "Full Circle", which was a new Chronos Files story set in the future. I enjoyed meeting Madi, one of Kate's descendents, and hope to see much more of this young lady.
There were quite a few stories in this collection that I really enjoyed! “Tide Sweeping” by P.K. Tyler was actually quite haunting and even though I read it several days ago, I can't get it out of my head.
Other favorites were “Bug Eater” by Nathan M. Beauchamp, “Dancing in the Midnight Ocean” by Caroline M. Yoachim, “Aquagenic” by Will Swardstrom, and “Turtle: An A.L.I.V.E. Story” by R.D. Brady (I can't stop thinking about that turtle!) Actually, I enjoyed most of the stories.
I loved many of the amazing concepts and ideas and would have enjoyed an entire book about some of these. Also, there are some great messages contained in this book.
Thank you to the authors for providing an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
