Into the Storm by Anderson Taylor

All seems lost! Following the disastrous defeat the USS Walker, a antique “four-stacker” destroyer left over from World War I and pressed into service once again, seeks refuge in a squall hoping the confusion from the storm will hide it from the pursuing Japanese armada. It does, but in a way that seems impossible.

On the other side of the squall is a world, that is familiar and yet so strange. The ocean teems with voracious piranha-like fish and gigantic sea monsters, there are dinosaurs in what should be Bali, and instead of people the crew of the Walker encounters ships full of talking “monkey-cats”.

What is the strange new world? Where is this strange new world? Who are these strange creatures and why are they so frightened of something called the Grik?
