Al Sarrantonio is an acclaimed author, and the editor of anthologies such as 999: New Stories of Horror and Suspense and Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy. He lives in Newburgh, New York.
When a boy from the town disappears, detective Bill Grant is convinced Samhain is responsible. But even Grant cannot imagine the horrific extent of the Lord of Death's grand scheme. As what may prove to be the last Halloween approaches, the fate of the world will depend on the survival of a small group of people, pawns in a terrifying game of cosmic proportions.
In 1992, after the success of Al Sarrantonio's apocalyptic novel SKELETONS, Bantam Books was set to publish it's follow-up, UNDERGROUND. But then Bantam, almost overnight, did away with its entire horror line, and UNDERGROUND went into oblivion.
But now, finally, it's back!
Fans of Al Sarrantonio's horror have been waiting 20 years for UNDERGROUND to see print, and the time is here!
UNDERGROUND, a picaresque tale of, literally, a trip to Hell, with characters such as Dr. Foostis and Malice in Wonderland, is an amazing journey to the very center of the Earth. Told in the literary spirit of SKELETONS, it is sure to astound and entertain. And it's the only unpublished novel ever by horror master Al Sarrantonio.
