The author of The Book of the Bizarre presents an enchanting collection of classic mermaid stories and historical anecdotes from around the world.

From Homer's Odyssey to Pirates of the Caribbean, mermaids have fascinated popular culture for centuries. Varla Ventura explores the wealth of literature about these mythical creatures in this charming anthology. This volume includes turn of the century tales of merfolk from Bret Harte, T. Crofton Croker, and W.B. Yeats, along with tantalizing trivia, facts, first-hand accounts, and speculations about mermaids in popular culture.
In these pages, you will discover:
· Many people today believe that early explorer sightings of mermaids were actually manatees.
· The legendary pirate Blackbeard was afraid of his crew being lured into a watery grave by mermaids, so he ordered his ships to avoid areas where they were said to be.
· Since 2009, the town of Kiryat Yam, Israel, has offered a prize of $1 million dollars to anyone who can prove the mermaid off their coast is real. The prize remains unclaimed.
