The Ocean of All Her Children by Edward J. Santella

Okay, it's two-twenty AM, an hour past my bedtime -- late, even by my standards -- and I've just finished reading this --

-- you've got a day or two to read this before it disappears into the archive for who knows how long, so --

READ THIS.

It's just one of the most amazing stories I've encountered in some time, and I'd be guilty of omission if I failed to urge you --

READ IT.

You won't be sorry.

I'm nominating this story for the Year's Best list, as of now, and thank you, Mr. Santella.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

This is a long, intricate story that probes the meaning and power of myth. It is a mystery wrapped in a archaeology story encased in a romance.

It is a bit long to read at one sitting, but it is well worth the time.

Wow. Seriously Wow. Glad I took the time to read that before it got archived. Good work Mr. Santella!
