One of the world’s favorite fairy tales, The Little Mermaid, was written in 1836 by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. Since then, this story has been adapted into ballets, musical theater, opera, and animation. Disney now has plans to release it as a live-action movie! Until then, Writer’s Relief found this article on Bustle.com that offers thirteen stories featuring mermaids to “tide” you over:
The Oyster Thief by Sonia Faruqi
Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
The Merry Spinster by Daniel Mallory Ortberg
