THE LOWER DEEP. New York: Tor, . Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Tor Books 51645-1. "Sleepwalking, nightmares, and inexplicable behavior among American residents of the West Indian isle of St. Joseph all suggest powerful voodoo forces at work. When Dr. Stephen Spence, once a victim of voodoo himself, investigates with the help of friends, he discovers more complex and sinister horror involving the Bermuda Triangle and a race as old as mankind itself ... Intricate and sometimes unlikely plot details gain verisimilitude from Cave’s rich evocation of West Indian culture and mystical beliefs." - Stefan Dziemianowicz, Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-85. "Generally considered to be Cave's best novel. After two decades of writing for the slicks, his work is much improved in terms of quality, although I enjoy his pulp work from earlier decades a great deal." - Boyd White. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-85. A fine copy. (#161613).
