This is another short story that I really enjoyed after I got what was going on.  So it starts with a being coming up from what I guess is the bottom of the ocean and towards what appears to be their leader’s home, or the capital of their race.  The rest of the story is about how corrupt those in power can be, and how even those not in power can be corrupt.

This is a good story that reminds me of some of the more corrupt roman leaders, like Caligula.  I mean obviously since this is in ocean, you don’t have a horse as number 2 but other than that it reminds of it.  

This story is in my mind very symbolic of what happens in many of the countries around the world, the United States included.  The Rich get richer, while those who are the workers, the bottom, the middle class and poor are left to rot while the rich do what they want.  

I liked the story, it is a little sad but it is also what could happen if people don’t look at who is in power and do something when you can.  If you wait, or hope that someone else will do something, then Blood in the Water is our future, except we may not even have an ocean by that time.



About Charles Hash

Charles Hash is a reclusive individual that doesn't like to talk about himself often. He has finally published two novels after years of struggling with writer's block, and he has written a few short stories along the way as well.

His work tends to explore the darker, grittier side of life, where there are no happy endings. There is always a price to be paid for everything, and usually the cost is too great a burden to bear. He writes with a hammer hidden behind his back, waiting patiently for the perfect moment to drop it in a series of blows that leaves the reader reeling.

In his plots, he explores hot-button topics between his characters whenever possible, pushing boundaries wherever he finds them. Within his published works you will find transgender characters, suicide, failure, grief, hopelessness, coping, survival; all of which are integral components in the specific brand of horror he creates, incorporating a wide variety of different styles into his writing as well.
