Description

Out of the mire from storm drains, illegal dumps, and flooded landfills emerges "Watermind." Philip K. Dick meets "The Blob" in a postmodern combination of camp science fiction motifs and writerly ambition attacking serious subjects.

Professional reviews

"WATERMIND is an ecological horror story that could give Dean Koontz a run for his money. Consider all the billions of microchips, nanotechnology, drugs, and biological material that end up in our rivers. Buckner theorizes that it's only logical that all that matter coalesce into a primal soup that could create a living creature of liquid. Narrator Tanya Eby Sirois gives voice to heroine C.J. Reilly, an underrated scientist who is conflicted with feelings of self-doubt and massive daddy issues. WATERMIND is a modern retelling of THE BLOB, except this time the creature comes not from outer space, but from our own excesses. Sirois's sensitive narration makes listeners care for the creature, which only wants what we all want, to live free. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
