"I am woven through your past, as you are through mine-and both of us through theirs, the sea-peoples'." Hugo- and Nebula Award-winner Charnas has written a book about humans, her own past, and how our lives have always been intertwined with the creatures of the seas. An investigation into personal questions about herself and her writing grew to encompass not just her past, but the pasts of all of us. "I saw a lot of closed doors inside the house of myself, labeled 'I don't care,' 'I don't know,' and-the majority-'I don't remember.' But one stood open, the one that Miriam's words had unlatched and flung wide-'I don't believe.' There was no denying what lay beyond. The whales had souls, and I had been a killer of whales."
