My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Norman Freeman a former football (American football that is) is shoot at while in his car and hires Burnside, ex-college football player who is now a private investigator to find out why. Then Norman's brother is killed.
This book would have been a lot better without all the football game talk as it didn't help to solve the mystery and was to be honest boring.

PROFESSOR CHALLENGER:THE ISLAND OF TERROR by WILLIAM MEIKLE


Strange lights on the moors, weird noises in the night, cattle disappearing; these things alone are more than enough to prompt Malone’s newspaper to send him to investigate. And when his old companion Professor Challenger also goes missing, the hunt is on.
The trail leads Malone to the British military, and to a research station in the Bristol Channel, where an old terror proves, once again, that some things are not meant to be contained.

Mr. Meikle continues to write outstanding stories, and Professor Challenger: The Island of Terror is no exception, it further cements his place as one of the best storytellers writing today and I highly recommend it. - FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND

THE PLASM by WILLIAM MEIKLE


A pulp sci-fi novella from Dark Regions Press in hardcover, paperback and ebook

A derelict spacecraft and a storage cavern on Mars are linked by a forgotten secret. Ancient rituals are invoked, dark energy is awakened, and soon the Plasm is growing, and feeding. Desperate measures are required-but will they be enough? 

This one is a wee B-movie homage-a film that was never made if you like. It runs in my head like a Gerry Anderson production, and if you think of it like that, I'm sure you'll have a load of fun with it.

THE CREEPING KELP by WILLIAM MEIKLE


Some seaweed, a jellyfish and some material brought back from the Peabodie expedition to Antarctica. An innocuous enough blend you might think. But when a storm in the North Atlantic frees a sample that has been dormant inside an old wreck, the new creature finds that it is hungry. Our plastics-oriented society has given it an abundant supply of food... more than enough for it to grow, and build, and spread.

Can anyone escape the terror that is... THE CREEPING KELP?

If you are like me and grew up on those glorious nature run amok movies you will absolutely love The Creeping Kelp and I highly recommend it. - Famous Monsters of Filmland

The Creeping Kelp would make for a great beach read, and will give you shivers the next time you step on a piece of seaweed in the water. Highly recommended. - The Monster Librarian
