It's only six years late :nyah: but I finally saw this while searching the archives for fiction, and thought I'd share that I wrote one of the short stories in this anthology! "Talk To Us" deals with the evolution of octopus society on an almost-post-human Earth, and the book's editors let me post an excerpt.
