"My dear fellow, myths are nothing but a less disturbing form of reality"
This volume contains short stories that have something in common: the element of the unexplained - or, to use another term, the uncanny. Such stories are characterized by their ambiguity, as they are offered neither as explicitly supernatural, nor as the result of mere hallucination or illusion of the senses.

The decision is entirely up to you, but make no mistake: there are no easy way-outs. The title of the book, 'Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea' functions as a reminder (dare one call it a warning?) that these stories involve ...
