Description

From British Fantasy Award-winning author Ray Cluley comes Probably Monsters - a collection of dark, weird, literary horror stories. Sometimes the monsters are bloodsucking fiends with fleshy wings. Sometimes they're shambling dead things that won't rest, or simply creatures red in tooth and claw. But often they're worse than any of these. They're the things that make us howl in the darkness, hoping no one hears. These are the monsters we make ourselves, and they can find us anywhere. . . .

I first received a free e-copy of this book through netgalley.com, but liked it so much that I decided to buy one copy in order to share it with you all.

This is one of the best short stories anthologies I’ve read in a while. Actually, it’s one of the best I’ve read period.

The author, Ray Cluley, masters his words like some of my favorite supernatural/horror writers. For instance, I felt there was a bit Poe, Lovecraft or Gaiman in there. His stories are strong, emotionally packed. They can be creepy or fascinating or disturbing or all at the same time.

I loved the way how everything seems so normal, and yet this normality slowly slips into the supernatural. The narration is very smooth and brings us in odd and bizarre places even before we realize it.

Some stories crept into my dreams at night, and most stayed with me for a while (or actually, are still in a corner of my mind).

I’ll clearly keep an eye on future productions of this author, and recommend him warmly to all horror/supernatural lovers.

And remember, monsters are not always those who look the part.

Quite entertaining, good horrow novels where you didn't necessarily know right away who is the monster. I liked especially "Shark! Shark"" and "Night Fishing" but the best was absolutely "Beachcombing".
