Product description:

'The current grows stronger, the ocean hungry for revenge…'

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.

• Mer is the latest release in the Grattan Street Shorts list, which showcases diverse and experimental fiction and non-fiction from outstanding emerging writers.

• The stories in Mer subvert mermaid mythology via their ecofeminist themes which will appeal to adults and the YA market.

• Includes academic commentary by Hayley Singer.
