Vernon Lee – Dionea

Warren Armstrong – A Phantom of the Seas

Blurb:

The oceans have long been places of danger, mystery and horror. From ancient times there has been the terror that a trip might lead to edge of the world and the nameless place beyond its edge. There have been the strange lights of St. Elmo’s Fire. The sunken cities of Atlantis and Lyonesse. The Sargasso sea entrapping ships. The Bermuda Triangle. And within the ocean’s depths sea creatures both real and unreal. The great white whale in Moby Dick and the giant octopus in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. The oceans beckon us… and repel us. And storytellers have used the sea as a basis for ghost and horror stories down the centuries. In this anthology there are stories about phantom ships and their phantom sailors, weird encounters with spirits, a vengeful sea sprites, and sea serpents, and all manner of horror below decks. So, readers, take a passage with us to the weird realms of the benighted oceans!

It’s not unlikely the original stories were intended for Fantasy Tales before it went to the wall. As a non-fantasy man i’m not sure i will ever be able to get along with something called The Star Weave of Snorgrud Sunbreath but delighted to find stories i’ve not previously read from Michael Marshall Smith, David Riley, Brian Mooney and Ramsey Campbell among others.
