REVIEW QUOTE: This novel is prime Laymon (The Cellar), featuring characters reduced to appetites both carnal and carnivorous and a plot flensed free of all but the bloody bones of storytelling. While not every horror readers meat, this savage shockfest is a good example of the pulpy approach that has earned the late author a loyal readership for three decades. -- Publishers Weekly.
OVERVIEW: Neala and her friend Sherri only wanted to do a little backpacking through the woods. Little did they know they would soon be shackled to a dead tree, waiting for Them to arrive.

When this classic novel was first published in 1981, it was heavily cut, with nearly fifty pages removed. What remained was rewritten by both Laymon and a Warner Books line editor. Now, for the first time ever, the missing text has been completely restored along with Laymons original words and vision and the novel can finally be read the way it was intended.
