it was amazing
bookshelves: speculative-fiction

What blew me away about this story, and other stories by Cobb is his ability to paint an amazing picture of an exotic landscape. If you spend just a moment and read the first couple of paragraphs of this story you will understand how powerful his words are, and how immersive such writing can be.

This particular story I think serves better as an interesting piece in the greater cannon of material revolving around fish people that can be found in weird fiction and supernatural pulps, than perhaps a stand alone story.

Nevertheless I think because it is so short and it contains such masterful description and relatable situations I would recommend it to almost anyone interested in speculative fiction. You will fly through this story in one sitting and be glad that you did.
