Mark Sonders - Blight (Ace 1981)
Not sure if I've got this in the right place, but after landing it at zardoz, I had to make a thread. I'm actually making this an honourary Hamlyn, as it really should have been (even the artwork, font & blurb say Hamlyn to me) & ideally would have been written by Richard Lewis.
shifted Blight here , dave, as it's a home for all these livestock/ rodents/ reptiles/ insects/ bugs versus the human race atrocities although having a separate Hamlyn section tends to muddy the waters some. Blight has been on my radar for some time, but these things just don't show up in my neck of the woods as often as they once did. do let us know how you get along with it!
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.
