Polyphemus (1987)

by on Dec.05, 2023, under Books, news

Polyphemus, a landmark collection of the best modern speculative fiction is now available again at long last!

Michael Shea deftly blends the genres of horror, fantasy, and science fiction.

In the title story, an exploration team on a desert planet encounters a terrifying alien monstrosity. In “The Angel of Death,” a serial killer hunting innocent women turns out to be a visitor from another world. In “Uncle Tuggs,” a more traditional horror story infused with a dose of black humor, a series of grisly and bizarre deaths ensues that may be connected to the mysterious disappearance of old Uncle Tuggs, and in “The Horror on the #33” a wino witnesses a horrific murder committed by a strange wasp-headed monster on a city bus.

The classic story “The Autopsy,” which Algis Budrys called “one of the most successful meldings of science fiction with horror that I have ever encountered” and which was filmed for Guillermo Del Toro’s Netflix series Cabinet of Curiosities, tells of an aging pathologist called in to perform an autopsy — but what he discovers during his examination is chilling and unthinkable.

This beautiful new edition features a new introduction by Laird Barron. Available in hardcover or paperback from Valancourt Books and featuring the classic story THE AUTOPSY.
