‘Dog in a Fisherman’s Net’ by Samuel R. Delaney

There is something incredibly atmospheric about this story. You can feel sea salt on you while you read. You can often tell in Samuel R. Delaney’s SF writing that he is a well-travelled man but I’d say this collection brings us closest to some of his memories of places he has felt fond for. Especially when comparing the language in this to his journals. 

Collected in Aye and GomorrahAnd other short stories, Vintage, 2003
