Under 30,000 feet of water, the exploration rig Leaguer has discovered an oil field larger than Saudi Arabia, with oil so sweet and pure, nations would go to war for the rights to it. But as the team starts drilling exploration wells in their race to claim the sweet crude, a deep rumbling beneath the ocean floor shakes them to their core. Something has been living in the oil... "The Black" is a techno/horror-thriller reminiscent of movies such as Leviathan and The Thing and puts terror right into readers' ears. Paul E Cooley’s "The Black", a free podcast novel available from shadow and iTunes. Ocean exploration will never be the same.

Wonderfully creepy

This is a wonderful monster story. It really got under my skin and creeped me out and that is not easy to do. Cooley has created a fascinating monster. He has written a very complete story while still leaving you with the feeling, and fear, that we really have no idea what the full size and future threat of this creature might be. I find myself thinking about this story again and again. Do yourself a favor and check it out. You won't regret it.

Cooley’s Back in Black!

Paul Cooley writes great, scary stories about people. Sometimes it’s action adventure horror like the Black, or psychological horror or supernatural horror or suspense…okay sometimes it’s scifi dinosaur fights, but that’s another thing.

The Black is first and foremost a great story about people in a bad situation. It’s like 'Deep Blue Sea’ meets ‘The Thing’. A few technical glitches do not mar the quality storytelling and setup for scares to come.
