Last weekend, mermaids and mermen from many seas converged on the Wyndham Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida for this year's premier mermaid convention, Mer-Palooza. Here are just a few photos from the event. I will share more as time goes on. A big thank-you splash to Caribbean Pearl and Melissa Marie Irizarry for sharing this first set of photos with us!
Reader Mail: Thanks for the tips on your listings page! I got to meet four tail vendors at Merpalooza this weekend, and am about to order my first one. Woot! Matt

Mark Siegel will soon be releasing a mermaid themed novel, Sailor Twain. In honor of Sea Monster Week and the novel's release, the author is sharing his favorite mermaid artworks with us. Check out the Gallery of Favorite Mermaids in this article at tor.com.
You know, I didn't think we were THAT monsterous...
