What happens when the evil lurking within men is brought out for the world to see?
Is the Devil just a façade created to cover the will of God?
These are some of the questions that Arnab Ray throws up through his novel, The Mine. The story falls under the genre of horror fiction and is tailored for those with a penchant for the eerie.
Through The Mine, Arnab Ray describes the terrifying experiences of a group of miners who are employed at an ancient site of worship. They starts experiencing nightmares when darkness falls, and during the day, the carvings on the underground dome drive them insane, albeit slowly. An investigation is launched with a group of experts when things get out of hand, and what they discover next sets the tone for a spine chilling journey, one that they need to get out of - alive.
The Mine was positively received by critics upon its release and Pritish Nandy was present during its launch.

Arnab Ray, popularly known as Greatbong in the virtual sphere, is one of the well known bloggers in India. He takes sarcastic digs at Indian Politics, society and the Indian film Industry in his blog Random Thoughts of a Demented Mind.
May I Hebb Your Attention Pliss was his maiden book, and it was launched in 2010. Ray has also written for other media agencies like Outlook Magazine, Live Mint and Washington Post.

Goosebumps and unwitting intoxicationDear Readers,

GeniusI have been wondering for a long time why in India, people do not write horror. Either horror is women with open hair, clad in white saree, carrying a candle or its full of weird creatures like owls and cats and funny-looking spirits. While, these can be categorized as horror, they dont really send a chill through your body. They rather tingle the funny bone.

A glorious sophomore effortArnab aka Greatbong takes incredible delight in breaking his shackles, at being labelled as humor writer.A taut package providing the right amount of thrills and suspense, would be a perfect companion for those rainy evenings, curled up in bed, sipping coffee.

Be afraid. Be very afraidEver gone spelunking deep inside an underground cave, turned a bend, and had the flashlight go dead? Remember the feeling of chill down your spine, the pure, unadulterated fear? The experience of reading this book is very similar. The darkness is relentless, and the taut pace of the story makes sure that u stay glued to it, wishing you didnt have to take even those bathroom-breaks! With five brilliant yet devious minds, each carrying a terrible, dark secret, trying to cheat death and stay alive deep underground, blood spills and skeletons tumble out of the closet. A wickedly brilliant (and unc… (Expand)

Special EffortThe author is reknowned for his humour pieces, but The Mine proves that Arnab Ray has more up his arsenal. This relentlessly dark novel is unapologetic and confident of the path it takes through its pages. You would still be under a spell of its intensity after finishing the book.

An excellent effortHaving been a regular reader of Arnab's blog and first book I was a bit skeptical on hearing that Arnab was venturing into a complete different genre.

Awesome Chilling StoryI have been following Arnab for years now at greatbong.net and love reading his narratives. Just loved his first book May I hebb your attention pliss. So when I picked up this book my expectations were that of a satire filled with humorous sarcasm and witty observations that I have observed in Arnab's narratives over the years.

Psychological ThrillerThe Mine lives up to its name - it explodes with various plots and hints and doubts and more specifically fear in every page. The book is on its way to becoming another cult Indian literature in English. Riveting and deeply disturbing, this will stay with you for days after you have finished reading it.
