The Devil and the Deep: an anthology of spooky sea stories

The Devil and the Deep has surfaced and I’m lucky enough to appear with some great writers here:

    ‘Deadwater’ by Simon Bestwick
    ‘Fodder’s Jig’ by Lee Thomas
    ‘The Curious Allure of the Sea’ by Christopher Golden
    ‘The Tryal Attract’ by Terry Dowling
    ‘The Whalers Song’ by Ray Cluley
    ‘A Ship of the South Wind’ by Bradley Denton
    ‘What My Mother Left Me’ by Alyssa Wong
    ‘Broken Record’ by Stephen Graham Jones
    ‘Saudade’ by Steve Rasnic Tem
    ‘A Moment Before Breaking’ by A.C.Wise
    ‘Sister, Dearest Sister, Let Me Show to You the Sea’ by Seanan McGuire
    ‘The Deep Sea Swell’ by John Langan
    ‘He Sings of Salt and Wormwood’ by Brian Hodge
    ‘Shit Happens’ by Michael Marshall Smith
    ‘Haunt’ by Siobhan Carroll

 

You can buy it in book form, e-book, and as an audio, too. (In the UK, click here. America, here.)

My story, ‘The Whalers Song’, concerns a Norwegian whaling crew who find themselves on a desolate island where the mourning call of the wind haunts them…

The reviews have started coming in. The Game Of Nerds calls The Devil and the Deep a “must have”. Kirkus Reviews picked it as a best read for March, and ran a feature with us lot from the table of contents talking about our work. You can read it here.

Signal Horizon calls it “an anthology that demands the attention of any fan of short horror fiction” and says “‘The Whalers Song’ by Ray Cluley is a particular standout in the middle section of the anthology and an example of a more experimental work.”

YouTuber Erika Senteno, aka ThePerksOfBooks, says of ‘The Whalers Song’ “This story is so immersive and atmospheric. It’s a very chilling an unsettling piece but it’s also hauntingly beautiful.”

And this beauty comes from SFRevu: “The real gem of the book to me is Ray Cluley’s ‘The Whalers Song’, an outstanding piece of fiction featuring a group of whale hunters who, after the sinking of their ship, find shelter on a deserted island where past horrors still linger.”

Thanks, as always, to those taking the time to offer a review, it’s very much appreciated. And to those buying the book, I hope you enjoy the stories.
