Bug Eyed Monsters contains 12 tales of Creature Feature Terror, and is now also available in paperback.
THEY CAME FROM...
THE SEA - a huge crab and a giant scorpion, ancient foes intent on battle, and woe betide anything or anyone who gets in their way.
THE SANDS - deadly beetles, each bigger than a man, swarming and frenzied in defense of an ancient temple.
SPACE - a mutated spider threatens the ISS.
BELOW - giant scuttling Isopods swarm out of the depths bent on feeding and mayhem.
All of this, and more in this collection of creature features.
They come. We fight.
If you're looking for something that covers a whole lot of my creature feature enthusiasms, here it is. This is who I am.
Some of these stories are earlier workings out of ideas that later came along in the S-Squad series. (A large chunk of the story DISCONTINUITY turned up directly in INFESTATION.) This volume can be seen in a way as a companion piece to the Scottish squaddies' adventures. Indeed there's a story in here, INTO THE VALLEY OF DEATH, that might even feature an earlier, Victorian iteration of the squad. And IN THE GYRE povided me with an opening backdrop for another novel, THE CREEPING KELP.
