Twenty-five years after Bill Masen, the hero of the iconic 1951 cult novel Day of the Triffids, escapes with his family to a colony on the Isle of Wight, the human species is scattered all over the world as the deadly Triffid plants continue their devastating march.

One of the few human beings not blinded by the meteor shower of a quarter-century ago, David Masen, Bill’s son, has become a pilot, traveling in search of an effective weapon against the Triffids. In New York City, he discovers a group of people who appear to be immune to the Triffids’ deadly poison. But all is not as it seems in this colony, and soon David must face a dangerous adversary from his family’s past.

RACCONTO LUNGO HORROR - Un'offerta tanto allettante quanto incredibile, ma con risvolti a dir poco sconvolgenti

In questa splendida edizione, impreziosita da una nuova introduzione, l'autore racconta gli anni della sua formazione e l'ispirazione dietro a "Gerarrimos Flamotas: un giorno di straordinaria follia," arrichendo la pubblicazione con un racconto extra: "Alta tensione", entrambi incentrati sul tema della trasformazione fisica. Due perle che aprirono a Simon Clark l'Olimpo dei grandi scrittori dell'orrore. Sull'isola greca di Cefalonia, Gerassimos Flamotas affronta la più incredibile esperienza della sua vita quando si imbatte in uno sconosciuto che gli propone un'offerta tanto allettante quanto incredibile, ma con risvolti a dir poco sconvolgenti. In "Alta tensione", una follia d'amore trasforma la vita di un semplice segnalatore ferroviario in un incubo fluido... che non lascia scampo.   "Simon Clark è il più grande autore di romanzi horror della Gran Bretagna" "SFX"   "Simon Clark può essere considerato al pari di Stephen King." Bentley Little autore di "The Haunted"

Simon Clark, nato a Doncaster in Inghilterra, è un affermato scrittore dell'orrore. Tra le sue opere più celebri: "Il Regno del sangue (King Blood), La città dei vampiri (Vampyrrhic), Il lago dei vampiri (Vampyrrhic Rites)" e il romanzo – inedito in Italia – "Night of Triffids", seguito autorizzato del romanzo "Il giorno dei Trifidi" di John Whydam. Clark ha ottenuto nomination al Bram Stoker Award, al World Fantasy Award e al British Fantasy Award. Nel 2001 ha ottenuto il British Fantasy Award per il miglior racconto breve "Goblin City Lights" e il già menzionato "Night of Triffids."
