Rolling in the Deep

Subterranean. Apr. 2015. 128p. ISBN 9781596067080. $40. HORROR
When a sf cable channel decides to branch out into documentaries, it books the Atargatis on a cruise to the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean to search for proof of real-life mermaids. Prepared to fake what they can't prove real, the production company brings along a team of professional mermaid performers, and although one of those swimmers is the first to see the deadly reality behind the myth of mermaids, the rest of the crew won't be far behind.
VERDICT A well-crafted little monster tale from Seanan McGuire (author of the popular "October Daye" urban fantasy series as well as horror/sf under the Grant pen name), this novella is a treat for her fans but not a necessary purchase for libraries.
