A few weeks after ChillerCon, I appeared for an
‘In Conversation’ event at Swansea University, talking to
Dr Alan Bilton about All That’s Lost, Probably Monsters, and the appeal of horror as a genre.

You can find out more about the event, and ones like it, here.

RECENT APPEARANCE: CHILLERCON

03/06/2022

ChillerCon was an absolute joy, providing much opportunity for catching up with friends and fiends. I was one of the speakers on a panel about getting your short stories published, and I performed a reading as part of the Black Static reading group as well, which was great fun.

There was also much fun to be had at the Black Shuck Books launch, where I joined Sean Hogan and Gary McMahon to release new books into the wild.

 
 

NEW COLLECTION 

22/04/2022

My second collection All That's Lost will be launched at ChillerCon this May and is available now for pre-order as a fancy signed and limited hardback from Black Shuck Books.


I'm very proud of this collection, and thankful to Steve Shaw for publishing it, as well as to Stephen 'Ghostwatch' Volk who was kind enough to write a wonderful introduction. I've also been lucky enough to receive a quote form the brilliant Brain Evenson, so I'm thrilled about that. Here's a snippet:


"Cluley's fiction is precise, creepy, and weirdly unsettling. He knows better than anyone how to pick at the seams of reality until they begin to come apart and something dark begins to leak out"

'FLOATING ON THE RIVER'

INTRODUCING RAY CLULEY

16/02/2022

As a kid, I was lucky enough to have some very creative and hugely supportive teachers who encouraged us all to write stories, and when the local radio station wanted to run a feature on our school, I was volunteered to read one of mine for the show.

I'll forever be grateful to my teachers at Elizabeth South Junior Primary School for that. I have no doubt that my drive to write grew out of those inspiring early classes and that radio moment.

So if you want to hear the first story I ever shared with the public, simply click below. And as an added bonus, you'll hear what I used to sound like as a 7-year-old with an Australian accent...
