Welcome to Searchable Sea Literature, which is devoted to works by North American authors, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and plays. This list of works has been expanded from what was initially derived for The Encyclopedia of American Literature of the Sea and the Great Lakes (Jill Gidmark, ed., 2000). Peer-reviewed biographies are provided courtesy of this encyclopedia and other scholars. To find an author, click on the first letter of his or her last name below or use the search field. A number of entries feature audio and video footage and are linked by their tag at the bottom of each post. Click on either of these links to browse other entries with audio and video or if you only want to search male or female authors.
