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!
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.
I am a big fan of P.K. Tyler, and her story "Tide Sweeping" was everything I could have hoped for from this brilliant, innovative author. I was entranced by the mysterious story and lyrical prose. In the far future when the oceans have almost disappeared and deserts have crept over the world, a priestess called a Sweeper is the caretaker of the last bit of underwater ocean accessible to people. She is dedicated and considers the ocean to be a goddess. We experience her loneliness and longing for a normal life, but she is dedicated to fulfill her lifelong calling. She feels attuned to the ocean. A mysterious ritual that happens every 20 years is fast approaching. FYI, since this story has some violence, I would recommend it for teens and adults, not children.
"Aquagenic" by Will Swardstrom was a captivating story firmly set in modern America. We get to know a nurse in a psychiatric facility who befriends a perfectly sane woman who had been found on a beach without memories but with an allergy to water! Together, these two friends figure out her mysterious origins. The outcome blew my mind. I was really impressed with the characterization and the writing. I will have to look for previous stories by this author.
I received a free advanced reading copy from one of the authors, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
