Fire (1990)
Alan Rodgers
"Every so often, a truly seminal book is published in the horror field. Blatty's The Exorcist, King's The Stand, Barker's Books of Blood. Alan Rodgers' Fire is such a book. It is a tale of amazing sweep and scope, uniting Biblical prophecies and hightech, ancient horrors with new ones cobbled up from labs and shadows. After this book, everything changes."
