Editor's Pick of the month
Muck diving has become a global phenomenon. The critter identification guide has become almost as essential at dive resorts and on dive boats as the compressor that fills our tanks. Worthy as most of these invertebrate ID guides are, they can be something of a dry read and not set aside for bedside reading. That's not something one would say of Muck Diving - a Diver's Guide to the Wonderful World of Critters by Nigel Marsh.
Muck Diving is more than an identification guide. The author explores different muck environments, the history of muck diving, simple yet successful diving and photo techniques and the indispensability of a good local guide.
The second part of the book provides information about most of the critters you are likely to encounter, while the third part deals with the best places to find them. It's a great read -- 352 pages packed with pictures and information, and enclosed in a water-repellent cover! Finally, the book includes a comprehensive list of dive operations specializing in muck diving. It costs $19.99 through Amazon.

Written by Undercurrent's publisher Ben Davison (writing as KL Smith) and set in Belize, Tropical Ice is a story of shark-finning and reef-raping, murder and politics, on an industrial scale, with plenty of diving. You'll sense a creature's eyes on a night dive, feel the sandpaper skin of a shark on your bare back, and taste the sweat dripping off your eyebrows as you push through the underbrush on Snapper Caye.
It all takes place at Cap'n Jack's Rum Caye Dive Resort, where Jack's trying to save his failing resort with shark-feeding dives, until a body turns up in the damnedest place. You'll flip pages through surprising twists and turns that keep you glued to the text, all the way to the surprising events at the end. I sure didn't see them coming.
