"22-Mermaid Legend—Encyc. Britt. XVI—40."
H.P. Lovecraft, Commonplace Book

"This is the name of a female water being in the form of a beautiful young woman from the head to the waist, the rest of her body being like the tail of a huge fish."

"Even the ancient accounts, as well as the more modern ones, mention the appearance of these supernaturals in conjunction with misfortune and disaster, although occasionally they can be benevolent."
Carol Rose, Giants, Monsters and Dragons
