Story spotlight: “And the Sea Shall Give Up its Dead” by P.D. Cacek

Mac, retired professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies, spends his time watching The Weather Channel and talking to George, the ghost Gerald invented so that he didn’t have to talk to himself.

When the bodies start washing up on beaches around the world, Mac has a lot more to say to George – and George has some things to say as well.
“And the Sea Shall Give Up its Dead” is in the Beneath the Waves collection. You can learn more on BundleRabbit, Goodreads, and the collection’s Facebook page.

About the Author

P.D. Cacek originally aspired to be an actress, but her dreams were dashed when, while playing Dinosaur Number 1 in her high school’s production of By the Skin of Our Teeth, she inadvertently crawled off the stage and landed in the orchestra pit. Dinosaur Number 1 died that night, but the experience put her on the significantly less perilous path of writing horror.

P.D. is the author of over 200 short stories, and has won both a World Fantasy Award and a Bram Stoker Award for her short fiction. She’s written five novels: Night Prayers, Canyons, Night Players, The Wind Caller, and The Selkie.

“Horror is an emotion, something that reaches past all the barriers and finds the one dark corner of our self-image that has not grown up. Horror doesn’t have to include dismemberments or gushing wounds or ancient demons dredged up by a new housing development. Anything, even a simple evening’s walk, can be horrific if you look at it the right way … and I do.”
