Publisher Description

Winner of the World Fantasy Award for Best Novella

Wakulla Springs, in the deep jungle of the Florida panhandle, is the deepest submerged freshwater cave system in the world. In its unfathomable depths, a variety of curious creatures have left a record of their coming, of their struggle to survive, and of their eventual end. And that's just the local human beings over the last seventy-five years. Then there are the prehistoric creatures...and, just maybe, something else.

Ranging from the late 1930s to the present day, "Wakulla Springs" is a tour de force of the human, the strange, and the miraculous.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

5 Reviews

“A beautiful story, telling of multiple generations and the Florida waters sacred to them. Beautifully written, but, as many will tell you, not SF/F. What little that is even remotely supernatural is, most likely, metaphor. Still, that shouldn't turn you off of this and, despite no unnatural doings, this is still some kind of fantasy.”
