A challenging anthology of science fiction stories from a diverse cast of authors—all centered around the theme of water

In this haunting and imaginative new volume from Rosarium Publishing, speculative fiction authors from around the globe explore the power, mystery, and majesty of water. From Lagos to New Orleans, Reykjavik to Beijing, new and celebrated writers tell us how water, ancient and dangerous, precious and fragile, takes startling new forms. In these remarkable, hallucinatory short stories, water reveals itself as teacher, lover, goddess, and monster; music, treasure, danger, and medicine. Listen to the magic of water as writers such as Andrea Hairston, Nalo Hopkinson, Rion Amilcar Scott, Christopher Caldwell, and others, illuminate for us the source of all life.
