I research a lot for poetry, but never thought of using Flickr. Very useful!<br /> Two more recommendations for you &#8211; I just got the bound galleys for an upcoming anthology &#8211; almost all fiction with just a couple of poems (by me, cough, and one other poet) called &#8220;Beastly Bride.&#8221; The introduction alone is fantastic &#8211; all sorts of backstories on transforming women throughout different cultures &#8211; and featuring stories by the likes of Peter S. Beagle (the guy that wrote The Last Unicorn, who wrote a story based on Hawaiian sea myths I think you will love) and Jane Yolen. I thought of your Sea myth stories when I read the collection.<br /> Also: go see Ponyo, the new Miyazaki movie. It also is inspired by several sea myths about transforming girls. There is an interesting Japanese folk tale about a girl who transforms into a goldfish &#8211; and of course, The Little Mermaid&#8217;s story also creeps in &#8211; though Miyazaki has said he hated the ending to that story, so he didn&#8217;t follow that plot line all the way.<br /> That&#8217;s it from your friendly neighborhood &#8220;recommender of good things.&#8221; Also, AS Byatt&#8217;s &#8220;Children&#8217;s Book&#8221; is almost out &#8211; did you ever get ahold of her &#8220;Little Black Book?&#8221;<br /> Hugs, Jeannine</p> Jeannine Hall Gailey
