Children of Dagon, by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Lightspeed Magazine, October 2015; 2,747 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

As London falls to the waves, a tribe of modified human beings takes over the waterlogged areas, fighting with the human refugees.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The conflict with the baseline human beings where the narrator is moved by their children hammers home the fact that the modified humans are still human.

Con: No actual storyline. Way too much preaching. Not really feasible that anyone could produce such a race of GM humans in any reasonable length of time. Even with plants it takes several generations.
