It starts with a strange glowing fog that arrives at the height of a snowstorm.

A terror from the past has returned, bringing with it death and destruction that threatens to overrun the town. The old stories tell of a post-war experiment gone wrong, one that opened the way for the fog--or whatever was behind it--to begin its reign of terror.

A small team of workmen are the last hope to keep their town alive through the long, storm-filled night. But the many horrors that await them are beyond anyone's worst nightmares.

I love the writing of Wiliam Meikle and this book is no exception!

Two storylines, one from the past and one set in the present, tell the sad story of experiments gone wrong and the consequences experienced by all. Everyone knows that when you to try to open doors to other dimensions, it never turns out well, but that never seems to stop folks from trying.

Wildly imaginative creatures and freaky glowing fog take center stage and this reader couldn’t help but to stay for the entire show. Lovecraftian in style,(but easier to read), fast paced and just plain fun, I highly recommend this short novel-especially to fans of Lovecraft and/or creature features!


About William Meikle

I am a Scottish writer, now living in Canada, with over twenty novels published in the genre press and over 300 short story credits in thirteen countries. I have had books published with a variety of publishers including Dark Regions Press, DarkFuse and Dark Renaissance, and my work has appeared in a number of professional anthologies and magazines with recent sales to NATURE Futures, Penumbra and Buzzy Mag among others.

I live in Newfoundland with whales, bald eagles and icebergs for company and when I’m not writing I drink beer, play guitar and dream of fortune and glory.

I don’t know where the ideas come from. I’m just glad that they come. It’s been over twenty five years now. I think it’s enthusiasm that keeps me going. I just love adventure stories with guns, swords, monsters and folks in peril.

I’m just a big kid at heart.

And therein lies my secret. I haven’t grown up.
