This early work by Morgan Robertson was originally published in 1913 and we are now republishing it as part of our Cryptofiction Classics series. 'From the Darkness and the Depths' is a short story about a aged former seaman who tells the tale of his last voyage near the eruption of Krakatoa and the unseen creature that terrorised the ship. The Cryptofiction Classics series contains a collection of wonderful stories from some of the greatest authors in the genre, including Ambrose Bierce, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Jack London. From its roots in cryptozoology, this genre features bizarre, fantastical, and often terrifying tales of mythical and legendary creatures. Whether it be giant spiders, werewolves, lake monsters, or dinosaurs, the Cryptofiction Classics series offers a fantastic introduction to the world of weird creatures in fiction.
