Faerie Magazine #25, Winter 2013, PDF
Mermaids is a special issue of Faerie Magazine devoted entirely to our favorite creatures of the sea. Edited by Carolyn Turgeon, Mermaids features original fiction and poetry from authors like Alice Hoffman, Aimee Bender, Keith Donohue, Francesca Lia Block, Tera Lynn Childs, Matthea Harvey, Jane Yolen, and more. We profile cover model Hannah Fraser, who talks about swimming with whales and sharks. We talk to Tim Gunn (about mermaids and fashion!), mermaid tail maker Eric “The Mertailor” Ducharme, legendary artist Michael Kaluta, and Mami Wata expert Henry Drewal. We take you on trips to Sacramento’s Dive Bar, the Denver Aquarium, Weeki Wachee Springs, and 60s-era attraction Aquarama. Stephen G. Bloom writes about pearls, while Timothy Schaffert tells us about mermaid hoaxes, David Bar Katz remember's Superman's mermaid girlfriend, and David Helvarg talks about ocean conservation. And so much more.
