We cannot resist the call of the sea. Enter a strange world where things are never quite what you expect, in this collection of science fiction and weird tales from Kate Kelly. Ancient ruins, lost civilisations, alien visitors and restless ghosts; sinister technology, environmental disasters, dark secrets of the past and the mysteries that lurk beneath the ocean waves… There are tales here that blend the past with the present, explore the possible futures we are creating and touch on the darker side of the world we think we know. Kate Kelly is a marine scientist by day and a writer by night. Science fiction and weird fiction are her favourite genres, often inspired by her fascination with the sea. She loves writing short stories enjoying the liberation they afford for exploring new ideas and forms. Several of the tales in this collection were previously published to critical acclaim or have been shortlisted in major competitions such as the Yeovil Prize, where Kate was twice winner of the Western Gazette award for best local author. Her first novel, Red Rock, a Cli-Fi adventure for young adults, was published in 2013 by Curious Fox. Kate and her family live in south-west England, near the coast and when she is not writing she takes to the sea in her kayak, or can be found wandering the remoter stretches of the South West Coast Path.
