Overview

Squid Hunters is a marine science fiction adventure novella featuring a father and son united in the bond of their unique talent; hunting and killing deadly giant blue squids. Spanning the globe from Vancouver, Canada to the plains of south central Anatolia to the Weddell Sea near Antarctica, this fast-paced story never lets up. The theme was inspired by a painting by the author's son of a giant squid descending upon unsuspecting penguins from the sky. Actual research on colossal cephalopods is combined with interesting facts and colorful locales drawn from Lachman's home base in Turkey to add a modest amount of veracity to this otherwise fanciful tale. Throughout, the author's love for his talented and resourceful son creates a compelling story.
