Is it octopuses, octopi, or octopodes? We never did get to the bottom of it, but talked about plenty of other things - from sea monsters to sex-objects, based on the following readings:
1. Excerpts from Adrian Tchaikovky's SF novel Children of Ruin
2. "Inklings and Tentacled Things: Grasping at Kinship through Video Games," by Melissa Bianchi in Ecozon@ vol. 8, no. 2, 2017, pp. 136-150.
