Stone Cold

Stone Cold

A Novella by

'A master of eerie thrills' Richard Laymon

Meteors are falling to earth...

They are hugely valuable.

So what better way to get rich quick than by finding your own meteorite and selling it piece-by-piece to eager collectors?

This is what Stoner and his friends plan to do when they learn that a meteor crashed into a remote valley several years ago.

However, the valley is the site of a new reservoir and will be flooded in a matter of days.

The meteor hunters face a race against time.

Not only is the rising flood engulfing roads and ghostly, abandoned villages, and threatening the safety of the meteor hunters, but that cold slab of extra-terrestrial stone harbours a force of pure evil...

A force, which entered the rock in the eternal, dark midnight of the cosmos, has the power to possess minds, take lives and wreak chaos.

And Stoner and his team are plunged into a fight for their lives.

Stone Cold is a dramatic and terrifying novella by the award-winning author, Simon Clark, in which the hunt for a valuable piece of stone from the sky becomes a desperate battle for survival.

Praise for Simon Clark:

'Inventive and fast moving - good old fashioned fun.' The Washington Post.

'To say that Simon Clark is the best novelist to emerge this decade is self-evident. Simon has simply outgrown genre restrictions' Andrew Darlington

"... a wildly imaginative ride from page one, masterfully twisting and turning, and still never going where you might think..." Gord Rollo, author of The Jigsaw Man.

"Clark again proves that when it comes to generating tension, he is without peer" Michael McBride, author of the God's End Trilogy.

"a master storyteller, and a must have for anyone who enjoys exciting and expertly crafter horror fiction' Greg F. Gifune, author of The Bleeding Season.
