No man can live and work on the ocean floor without the occasional visit mainside. At least, that's the policy when you work the North Atlantic seabed at the NorthAtStat nuclear power station. But for one man, the surface-side R&R is anything but restful. Can he readjust to life on the surface? Jeffrey A. Carver's first published story appeared originally in 1974. 6000 words. First appeared in Fiction Magazine and reprinted in the anthology Wet Visions. Also appears in the ebook collection Reality and Other Fictions.
