Mercer, Warren. Warren Mercer was created by Sewell B. Wright (Commander John Hanson) and appeared in “From the Ocean’s Depths” (Astounding Stories, Mar. 1930) and “Into the Ocean’s Depths” (Astounding Stories, May 1930).
Warren Mercer is a Superhuman. He is a wealthy inventor and explorer and diver who finds a mermaid near his estate in Florida. Mercer has invented a form of telepathy which he uses to communicate with the mermaid, and he learns about their culture. In the sequel the mermaid, Imee, asks Mercer for help, as the mer-race is being attacked by another race of aquatic humanoids. Mercer uses acid to kill the attackers.
