For some reason, I've always been fascinated by mermaids. The first character I created was a mermaid, & right now I'm writing stories about her that I think would make a great animated series. For research, I'm willing to watch or read anything with a mermaid in it, & 9 times out of 10 I get an idea that adds to the mythology of my interpretation of the merpeople. So when I read about an anthology called Mermaids I knew I had to get it. And overall I was not disappointed. I could have done with a couple more stories about good mermaids, or even actual mermaids, but what I got was worthwhile. High points were:

The Prevalence of Mermaids of Mermaids, by Avram Davidson. This is a very fascinating essay about mermaids that is part of a series called Adventures in Unhistory, where Davidson explores history & folk lore. I shall be checking out the other ones as soon as I can find them.

Nothing in the Rules, by L. Sprague De Camp. Easily my favorite story here. This is exactly the sort of story I expected to find when I bought this collection. It's well written, featured a very nice mermaid, and many parts had me laughing out loud.

Driftglass, by Samuel R. Delany. An interesting story about genetically made mermaids and mermen. It also features a hilarious in hindsight moment, as one of them is a female redhead named Ariel!

A Touch of Strange by Theodore Sturgeon. A short but sweet story.

Fish Story, by Leslie Charteris. This was a very interesting & very well-written story. Despite the fact that there were no actual mermaids in it, I would say this was my second favorite story in this collection.

In the Islands, by Pat Murphy. This was interesting, & briefly mentioned my theory about merpeople: that they came from the stars.

Jane Yolen also has 3 very short stories in here which are good, but depressing (Though not as depressing as Hans Christian Andersen's magnum opus of tragedy, the Little Mermaid. That was so depressing I wanted to shoot myself after I read it. Thank God Disney changed the ending. I would have cried my little eyes out, & my sister would have been scarred for life.). The low points were Mrs. Pigafetta Swims Well, `Till Human Voices Wake Us & The Crest of Thirty Six. The ones I didn't mention were all fine, not great but not bad either. Out of 18, there are only 3 I would mind reading again. So overall it was good, and to top it off, it gives a recommended reading list of books & short stories about mermaids. This is definitely recommended if you love mermaids.

While looking for an out-of-print book, Mermaid's Song, I stumbled across this conglomeration of different types of mermaid short stories. There was quite a variety of content, from an almost newspaper reporterish to the bazaar to the almost science-fiction era. Definately written for adults, I would still recommend this to mature Jr High or High School age people. However, as this is another great classic that the Sci-Fi Bookclub (to the best of my knowledge) has never picked up in re-print, it may be harder to find.
