Take a dip into a world where reality trembles and sanity is all in the mind. A world created by the brilliant author of Day of the Triffids and The Kraken Wakes.

There’s a monkey with a unique artistic talent –
A man living his life over and over again –
The tube in the rush hour that was so crowded it seemed like hell; in fact is was Hell…

Sit back and enjoy these fragments from beyond the edge of reason. And, keep looking behind you!

James Herbert – The Rats (1988: originally NEL, 1974)

Blurb:

It was only when the bones of the first devoured victims were discovered that the true nature and power of these swarming black  creatures with their razor sharp teeth and taste for human blood began to be realized by a panic‑stricken city.
For millions of years man and rats had been natural enemies.

But now for the first time – suddenly, shockingly, horribly – the balance of power had shifted …

Richard Bachman – The Long Walk

Richard Bachman – The Long Walk    (NEL, Sept. 1989)

Cover: Gerald Grace

Blurb:
In the America of the not-too-distant future, authority wears a uniform and stands above the law.

The nation’s top sports event is a 450-mile marathon walk, a gruelling road race for the fittest young men in the land, a terror trek where a single wrong slip is probably the last.

Victory means fortune and fame. There’s only one winner and there are no losers.

Tomorrow’s world is a place where failure is against the rules.

Bari Wood – The Tribe

Bari Wood – The Tribe  (NEL, Oct. 1982)


Blurb:
Hut 554 in Belzec Extermination Camp was different. The inmates were alive.
Shabby, pale, but in good health and well-stocked with food – official supplies that were better than even the German Army had by 1945.

But amongst the horror of the camp and the relief that some at least had sur­vived, one man noticed something strange about the Jews of Hut 554: a fine greyish dust that coated the interior and clung to their clothing. A small mystery that could be part of the big mystery: why had this one small group been kept carefully alive?
Thirty-five years later, in Brooklyn, police burst into the basement hideout -of a teenage gang. This time the in­mates were dead. Brutally killed, bat­tered to death and torn limb from limb. And again, amongst the bloodbath, something strange: a fine greyish dust, scattered and clinging to the bodies.
