I just finished this excellent book. Here is my review: www.z7hq.com/pulp/fluke-by-james-herbert.php I must confess that this is the first novel I have ever read by him. I've heard good things about him for years, just never got around to reading anything. And now he's gone.... In my younger days I hung out at a bohemian bookstore near the campus of Ohio State University which seemed to have the latest in "Nasty Nel's". For some reason I always linked him in my mind with all those "nature on the rampage" books.
