Octavio Paz meets J.G. Ballard meets David Attenborough in these suspenseful and lyrical future fiction tales of hybrid species and aqua technologies. ‘Meanda’ takes place on an ocean exoplanet and is a story of first contact. ‘Asbru’ tangles scientific researchers in the fronds of Icelandic algae. The stories engage with the behaviours and properties of water. Other stories explore slime technologies. These fictions are spawned by aquatic flora and fauna, such as spitting fish, inking squids and singing whales. and above all, they are inspired by water itself.
