About this title

Synopsis:

Gleefully mixing SF, fantasy, and horror, Screaming Science Fiction is a full-length collection of nine thrilling, chilling, spine-tingling stories by horror master Brian Lumley (Necroscope), including "No Way Home," "Snarker's Son," "The Strange Years," and a nearly 20,000 word novella ("Feasibility Study") appearing for the first time anywhere.

From Booklist:

Besides more than 50 horror and sf titles to his credit, Lumley has a knack for blending the two genres into a distinctive and personal hybrid. In his latest collection, however, science plainly plays second fiddle to horror as nine tales explore creepy encounters with everything from mutant bugs to ravenous aliens. In "Snarker's Son," a small child leads a nonplussed police officer into an alternate London in which the underground tube tracks harbor snakelike entities rather less accommodating than trains. "Deja Viewer" recounts the fate of a young time traveler whose prophetic dreams feature an emaciated creature whose visage bears more than a passing resemblance to his own. Other stories track Earth's plague-ridden future and the gloomy back roads of England's remoter regions. Dedicated sf fans may find the science in these tales a little tame, but Lumley is clearly more interested in terror than technological intrigue. His fans, in particular, should find these macabre misadventures gratifyingly chilling. Carl Hays
