The Creeping Kelp

by William Meikle

Publication Date: 28/02/2014

Some seaweed, a jellyfish and some material brought back from the Peabodie expedition to Antarctica. An innoccuous enough blend you might think. But when a storm in the North Atlantic frees a sample that has been dormant inside an old wreck, the new creature finds that it is hungry. Our plastics-oriented society has given it an abundant supply of food... more than enough for it to grow, and build, and spread. Can anyone escape the terror that is... THE CREEPING KELP? Praise for William Meikle: "The author is relentless; just when you catch your breath, something new and exciting happens, sending you spinning into another part of the adventure, and keeping you flipping pages to see what's next." - David Wilbanks, Horrorworld ..". solid prose commands attention right from the start and carries the reader straight through to the climax." - Garrett Peck for Cemetery Dance #40 ..".descriptions so vivid you can almost hear the clash of the swords and smell the blood." - Murder and Mayhem Bookclub "Meikle is a writer that can grace the page with words of beauty whilst twisting a nightmare into grotesque shapes before your eyes." - Len Maynard and Mick Sims "William Meikle's short stories and novels are shining examples of what is missing in horror fiction today: atmospheric in style, old-school in character, with an intriguing story to be told. Utmost use is made of the author's native Scotland in many of his tales, and his forays into the Cthulhu Mythos stories are original in concept, building on Lovecraft's works." - David Wynn, Mythos Books
