This Is Horror readers may have noticed a few social media posts, but we’ve largely kept quiet about our move into audiobooks. But not any longer because Water For Drowning by Ray Cluley is available on Audible right now and we’re excited. So excited, in fact, we’re just going to drop an audio preview (it’s not the beginning of the book—that wasn’t quite ‘clean’ enough for Audible) and links to the book below.
Do you like how that sounds? We certainly do. So click through and buy it today. You could be listening to the full book right now. And if you’re not already an Audible member you can get it as part of a 30-day free trial, so could literally be listening to Water For Drowning for free. And if you are a member, then you know how damn good Audible is already.
Here’s what Ray Cluley and RJ Bayley had to say about the release of Water For Drowning.
“It’s thanks to This is Horror that I get to indulge in one of my obsessions with this story, and RJ Bayley has done a great job with the narrating. Listen. Can you hear the music playing? The mermaids singing? Come and meet Josh and Genna, but beware of the water …
Speaking of which, just when you thought it was safe, etc, there’s a bonus story—the British Fantasy Award-winning ‘Shark! Shark!’ Hopefully that’ll make you smile, you son-of-a—”—Ray Cluley
“I’ve been a fan of the This Is Horror chapbooks for literally years before I even knew I’d become an audiobook narrator. In fact I gave Water for Drowning a glowing review in Popcorn Horror. So it was a delight to be asked by TiH to narrate these stories I was already a fan of in a genre I love. I don’t think I’ll ever get to do something so special again. I think we’ve created something to be really proud of and that listeners will love.”—RJ Bayley
