It's in the Water and Other Stories is a book of fourteen short stories written since 2004 by Ronald W Hull. There is something for everyone in this little book of gems. There is hard science fiction, true stories that are fictionalized to protect the innocent, biting satire, heartwarming tales, and three stories that children might enjoy.

 
Other authors have raved about the quality, surprise, and technical accuracy of these stories with phrases like, “Michael Crichton, watch out, Ronald Hull is coming.” “…I read each line in anticipation for a happy ending that did not disappoint.” “…[S]pectacular: love the vernacular of speech, the action, and the story itself!” “…[A] marvelous story for children, and contains all the magical ingredients and attractions that would appeal to children.“ “…Without question, this would make one hard-hitting film, whether short or long.” “…I was reminded of Neville Shute's, ‘On The Beach.'” “…[T]onight I’ll have nightmares…” “…[V]ery entertaining work, and that is not taking into consideration the real message you are conveying to everyone.” “Your writing reminds me of Isaac Asimov.” “I can't say enough about this beautiful story. Amazing. Had me in tears.” “Thanks for one wild scream of a ride.” “…[S]o…realistic, I was biting my nails as I was reading it!”
 
If you have little time to read like most of us, you can read one short story at a time and pick and choose from the review pages which story you will read next. They Are Us and Filthy Squatters are biting satire that you may wish to reserve your judgment on until you read the bylines and understand what the author is really writing about.
 
One or two of these stories is sure to become classic, be picked up by a major magazine and republished, or made into a film, either a short film by students (as Hit and Run already has), or a major feature film based on the short story premise. Those stories alone, are worth the book.
 
Please pick up and read, It's in the Water and Other Stories. You won't be disappointed.
