Publisher's Summary

Stranded on a desert island, a young man yearns for objects from his past. A local from a small coastal town in England is found dead as the tide goes out. A Norwegian whaling ship is stranded in the Arctic, its crew threatened by mysterious forces. In the nineteenth century, a ship drifts in becalmed waters in the Indian Ocean, those on it haunted by their evil deeds. A surfer turned diver discovers there are things worse than drowning under the sea. Something from the sea is creating monsters on land.

In The Devil and the Deep, award-winning editor Ellen Datlow shares an all-original anthology of horror that covers the depths of the deep blue sea, with brand new stories from New York Times bestsellers and award-winning authors such as Seanan McGuire, Christopher Golden, Stephen Graham Jones, and more.

Not what I expected. Only very few decent stories.

I thought that this was going to be a very chilling and scary book. Turns out only a precious few were worth the time and effort. I'm a fan of the most horrific, well written and entertaining short stories. Maybe others will find these stories enjoyable. I personally would've liked more loom and doom. "Haunt" was a good novella in this collection. But was spoken in strong accent by narrator. Still was my favorite.. I'm afraid of the sea, so I believed this collection would frighten me easily. I recommend that you listen to the sample story before you buy. Again, this is only my opinion.. Wanna be really scared? Try Berkley Street Series. I was honestly afraid and cringed at many points of the first two installments.. Plus I received all 9 installments for one credit. A great deal.. Looking forward to finishing the others installments..

Good Collection

This book has a wide variety of maritime horror tales, representing diverse settings, perspectives, and narrative styles. Ellen Datlow is a master of her craft, and this holds true to her high standards. Narration and production values are solid.

good for a sea horror enthusiast

some of the stories are lingering in "how does this relate to the sea?" but others are real gems in sea horror.
