AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Mediterranean is a liquid road connecting places and people. Ships, words and stories travel on its waves. Sometimes fantastic creatures, hidden in the hold. The Mediterranean speaks many languages; some of them we don't recognize anymore. They are ancient, but never really dead. This speculative fiction anthology collects twenty-four pieces of fiction and poetry, new and old, and some things that are in between, because we don't believe in boundaries. It gathers Mediterranean stories with a horror twist and horror stories with a Mediterranean flavour-caring sea monsters, still dripping and briny; brave mermaids, merciless ghosts and bizarre creatures-with exerpts in nine different languages and many different styles.'
