About this title


Father Patrick Bryce, a Catholic priest tormented by his pedophile past and a tormented present, continually finds himself living the life of a thirteenth-century bishop in whose person he confronts scandal, corruption, and horrors in the Church

From the Back Cover:

"An extraordinary feat of the imagination ... A superlative chiller with a surprisingly thought-provoking symbolic subtext and a remarkably evocative, often brilliant, style."

-- Washington Post Book World

"The M.D. is simply one of the best novels of horror-fantasy I've ever read. Thomas Disch has been writing wonderful tales of imagination for years now -- stories that sometimes amuse, sometimes sting, sometimes horrify, and sometimes manage to do all three at the same time -- but The M.D. is surely his magnum opus."

-- Stephen King

"A seductive premise ... as morally subversive as a Hitchcock movie ... The M.D. fully, and brilliantly, earns its subtitle: a horror story."

-- Entertainment Weekly

"Each new page, like an electric eel, is poised to shock."

-- Los Angeles Times

"I read Thomas M. Disch's The M.D. with pure delight ... A story that, regardless of its subtitle, breaks all the genre chains. It is suspenseful, engrossing, full of well-observed and convincing characters, steeped in irony, sly, often darkly hilarious yet with serious intentions that give it considerable impact."

-- Dean Koontz

"A truly stunning work of supernatural horror."

-- San Francisco Chronicle

"Resonate[s] with surprise and menace ... Surely the liveliest horror novel since Clive Barker's The Damnation Game."

-- USA Today
