SCREAMING SCIENCE FICTION.
by Brian Lumley.
Those looking for pure pulp fun need look no further than British author Lumleys new collection, whose nine stories gleefully mix SF, fantasy and horror... Homo sapiens fares little better in "Feasibility Study," the longest and only story original to the collection, which delivers a resoundingly unhappy ending. Lumley (Necroscope) provides an amusing and informative foreword. -- Publishers Weekly.
Besides more than 50 horror and sf titles to his credit, Lumley has a knack for blending the two genres into a distinctive and personal hybrid. In his latest collection, however, science plainly plays second fiddle to horror as nine tales explore creepy encounters with everything from mutant bugs to ravenous aliens.... Dedicated sf fans may find the science in these tales a little tame, but Lumley is clearly more interested in terror than technological intrigue. His fans, in particular, should find these macabre misadventures gratifyingly chilling. -- Booklist
