137. The Kraken Wakes by John Wyndham
On their honeymoon cruise, journalists Mike and Phyllis Watson are eyewitnesses to odd red fireballs that fall from the sky into the ocean.

The reactions of world governments and individuals are entirely believable in this sci-fi tale of monstrous beings lurking in the deeps.
