    Looking For a Book About Earth Underwater

    I'm looking for a book about Earth (or another planet) if it was flooded with water and people lived on the surface in boats and atolls (meaning they're not mermaids). Something like Waterworld, but... not as sucky. It can be either fiction or non-fiction, but preferably fiction. If there are any comic books, movies, or online articles describing a life like this, that's fine too.

    In Dan Simmons Hyperion series there is a planet called Mare Infitus (sp) thats is completely water.

    Several movies have certain aspects (A.I etc) but nothing with major detail that I can think of.

    Try Robert Silverberg's "Conquerors From The Darkness".It takes place hundreds of years after earth has been conquered by aliens who have turned it into a water world .

    I suggest *Door Into Ocean* by Joan Slonczewski. An alien world where earth-descended people live on natural rafts, in harmony with their ecology until they are invaded ... So far from sucky that it doesn't even exist on the same planet as "Waterworld"! A mind-stretching read!

    Try Kuttner's "Fury" (credited to the pseudonym O'Donnell); humanity has escaped from Earth (atomic war) and now lives in undersea cities on Venus.
