I'm guessing the majority of Vault inmates already know about Simon's works?
If not...well you do now. I'm looking forward to ordering his Vampire series.
Blood Crazy was basically a zombie novel with a twist...humans over the age of twenty are slaughtering younger people worldwide. I was not entirely happy with the explanation for this, but the well written story, as described in first person by survivor Nick Aten made up for that flaw in the tale. Some truly scary moments, especially as I read the book on a nightshift.
I had not come across Simon's books before...so if any of you Vaulter's know of any other modern authors who write in the same vein as Simon...IE: Pulp style spec fic/horror...let me know.
the novels are great fun: when i gave up on horror in the 'nineties, i still read him - you could get all his novels from the library at the time. he has some threads in the NEL section, for Vampyrric and, i think, nightreader reviewed Darker (might be on Vault MK. I), but there should be more.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty. - Christine Campbell Thomson
