FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLING “STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK” COMES AN UNFORGETTABLE SCIENCE-HORROR CLASSIC!
Bugged! begins at college reunion in a moldering mansion in the midst of an isolated swamp. Howard Barks, accompanied by his daughter Karen, is looking forward to seeing his old college chums when his car stops dead. Howard gets out to see what the trouble is, when a hundred of insects swarm over him and strip the flesh from his bones.
Ronald Reid, owner of the mansion begins to grow concerned for the Barks when hours pass and they fail to arrive and sends his butler Grollman to find them. Grollman discovers their car, with Howard’s skeleton, parked beside the road, and his daughter Karen alive inside the locked car.
Thinking what has happened is a freak occurrence, the rest of the alums don’t realize the horrors are just beginning until each member is attacked by swarms of insects and eaten alive.
“An affectionate parody of … horror stories …quite bloody and gruesome … a good chunk told from the point of view of the bugs … All in all, a strange and unique little book." –Amazon verified review
