I remember a book about a boy/teen whose world was turning "fishy?" the air was thicker, it was raining fish, I think, he was growing gills, but alas, the title & name escapes me,. T
There might have been an "uncle" adult male (not the boys dad) who lived/worked in a shed nearby..?

Also perhaps a digging machine???? BEFORE 1997....

This was recommended to me growing up by a friend who likes, blaylock, gene wolfe, etc.
Any thoughts?? BTW,LOVE the lost coin.. but that's not it.

THE DIGGING LEVIATHAN
James P. Blaylock


Southern California. Sunny days, blue skies, neighbors on flying bicycles ... ghostly submarines ... mermen off the Catalina coast ... and a vast underground sea stretching fromthe Pacific Ocean to the Inland Empire -- where Chinese junks ply an illicit trade and enormous creatures from past ages still survive. It is a place of wonder ... and dark conspiracies. A place rife with adventure -- especially for teenagers Jim Hastings and his friend, Giles Peach -- who was born with a wonderful set of gills along his neck.
