Comments for Sea Wrack

FSFSea Wrack: 06/20/09

"Sea Wrack" is the second classic reprint in the April / May 2009 issue of F&SF. From the way it is lovingly described in the introduction I had high hopes for the story. Unfortunately I didn't connect with it.

The story takes place in some far future oceanside location where a strange man is pulled from the sea. He turns out to have remarkable healing abilities. He claims (and later proves) to be from the sea. There's a talk of war between the land living humans and the sea living humans (or mermen, I suppose).

Whatever the point of this terse story is, I didn't get it. I read two and a half times and didn't come away with anything more than what I described. A lot of the reviews of this issue have high praises for "Sea Wrack" but all I can give it is a shrug of my shoulders.
