“Peter Benchley and Jaws never kept me out of the water, but this book edited by Rhonda Parrish might!”


Reader and reviewer

“The book is a reflection of the danger and beauty that really do lurk just below the surface. Or maybe in the deepest, coldest depths.”

Cat Jenkins

Author and reviewer

“These are tales of the things that would go bump in the night if they weren’t hidden under the waves and blending in with the seaweed… “Dark Waters” is an enjoyable yet very dark collection of horror stories. Wait for the evening to come, and turn the lights low. Four stars.”
