KIRKUS REVIEW

Another catalog of curiosities, including the nemertean, or ribbon worm, that grows up to 100 feet long. . . the brotulid, deepest catch yet, who bears live young. . . the thread-shaped pogonophore that lives in tubes and possesses a brain, heart, head, nervous system and sex but no mouth, stomach, intestines or anus. . . . Soule describes the behavior of some, the anatomy of others, and the deep-sea vehicles from which still others were spotted--in a characteristically hit-or-miss round-up that is nevertheless a few cuts above Wise's Monsters of the Deep (KR, p. 574, J-202).
