Mermaid and Other Water Spirit Tales from Around the World

Mermaid and Other Water Spirit Tales from Around the World by Heidi Anne Heiner

An enormous collection.

If you've read her other books, I must note that they are not mermaid fairy tales, though some do appear -- usually with the mermaid appearing in the "ogre" role -- but many bits of folklore and fancy and tales that are legends more than fairy tales. Some aren't tales at all but accounts of mermaid beliefs.

For true mermaid nerds.
