Ray Cluley

Ray Cluley is a writer. It used to be that he was a teacher who said he was a writer, but now it’s actually true. His stories have appeared in various dark places, such as Black Static, Crimewave, and Interzone from TTA Press, Shadows & Tall Trees from Undertow Books, and various anthologies and podcasts. A novelette with Spectral Press is due in 2014, and a collection (Probably Monsters) with ChiZine Publications was released in 2015. His story “At Night, When the Demons Come” was selected by Ellen Datlow for her Best Horror of the Year anthology, and “Night Fishing” was selected by Steve Berman for Wilde Stories 2013, while “Beachcombing” has been translated into French for Ténèbres 2011. “Shark! Shark!” recently won the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Story (2013). He writes non-fiction too, but generally he prefers to make stuff up.

Probably Monsters


“Excellent work—surprising, moving, and creepy as hell. And yes, chock full of honest-to-god monsters. Yet another great entry from the British horror scene.”
—Nathan Ballingrud, author of North American Lake Monsters

Probably Monsters is a delightful collection of spine-chilling horror and dark fiction stories by author Ray Cluley. I read a lot of short story collections in the horror genre, and I have to be honest: this is one of the best collections I’ve ever read. So if you want to crawl under a blanket and enjoy a chilling night, I would highly recommend this book.”
