Stephen Gilbert – Willard (Panther, 1971)

Blurb
Rats — one of Man’s deadliest enemies. They can outbreed him. Kill him with the plagues they carry. Strip the flesh from human bones with their needle-sharp teeth and claws. No wonder the hero of George Orwell’s classic 1984 found contact with rats the ultimate torture.

But if there was a man who didn’t find rats repugnant . . . if, on the contrary, he had such power over them that he could lead them on.a campaign of escalating revenge against those humans he hated — then the world would see such a mind-wrenching horror as it had never seen before. WILLARD is the story of just such a man. And just such a horror …

‘Makes Hitchcock’s The Birds look like a stroll through the park’ -KING FEATURES SYNDICATE
‘One of the more terrifying, deliciously scary thrillers’ – NEW YORK MAGAZINE

Blurb:
He was a big man. Massive. And every inch of him was illustrated. When his flesh twitched the colours burned in three dimensions. And the people moved, the tiny mouths flickered and voices rose, small and muted. Sixteen illustrations, sixteen tales. The first illustration quivered and came to life …

A SELECTION OF SPECIALITIES FROM THE MASTER OF FANTASY AND HORROR…

A crazy scheme to bring peace to the world – with the aid of rust; … a Martian that could be Jesus; an author, plucked from the grave to write a novel thwarted by death and Melissa Toad, the mysterious witch of New York…

This latest collection from Ray Bradbury takes you everywhere from a priest’s confessional box to the surface of Mars – here is an anthology that puts an end to all the loose talk about truth being stranger than fiction.
