The Thing in the Labyrinth – a horror book club

8:45 p.m.

Grab your diving suit, Ishmael – we’re going deep.

The Devil and the Deep: Horror Stories of the Sea is an anthology from Ellen Datlow, editor/anthologist extraordinaire, with 15 brand new stories by everyone from house fave Stephen Graham Jones to Alyssa Wong.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found terrifying this vast, mindless, heartless, monster-hiding expanse in which I cannot breathe. The sea. Shudder.

With our half-mermaid Captain Kathryn E. McGee at the tiller, this should be smooth-sailing… all the way down.

The book comes with the ticket WHICH YOU CAN GET RIGHT HERE, SAILOR; Bring Your Own Arm-Floaties.

Kathryn E. McGee’s horror stories have appeared in Gamut Magazine and anthologies including Dead Bait 4, Horror Library Volume 6, Cemetery Riots and Winter Horror Days. She has an MFA in creative writing from UC Riverside Palm Desert and is a member of the Horror Writers Association. She is also co-author of DTLA/37: Downtown Los Angeles in Thirty-seven Stories.
