I’ve been going over some books I’d like to buy. Mostly science fiction and fantasy with some research material ( books on Vietnam and Astrophysics and such) when I started to realize something was missing from my collection. It was such a face smash of emptiness that I had forgotten, but still as heavy.
There isn’t enough books on the ocean and sea monsters. I mean great biblical beasts from the depths of the black abyss that swim miles under our feet, watching and smacking their proverbial lips and going, “Mmmmm” at us.
Give me the great horrific sea monster fiction that flooded through the 80s B-movie scene like herpes on a porn set. I want more sea serpents that swallow ships whole, more pant shitting leviathans like Megalodon eating yachts and dories. I want some more books about the ocean and the ginormous creatures that lurk our imagination waiting to snap at our unsuspecting asses.
I’m a sucker for a good monster movie/book. I just love the creativity of the unknown, pending realism to a degree. In all seriousness, Moby Dick, Jaws, and The Beast are about the only sea creature books I have ( note how 2/3 of them are from Peter Benchley). I feel a lacking and emptiness in my collection. I WANT MORE!
So if you know of any cool sea beast books, feel free to drop them in the comments.
