SCIENCE FICTION BOOKS

CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON RESURFACES AGAIN

DH Press is proud to announce the newest addition to its original Universal Monsters novel series, Creature from the Black Lagoon: Time's Black Lagoon. Following in the footsteps of previous DH Press original novels featuring Dracula and Wolf Man, the Creature has been revamped with a modern horror sensibility by noted sci-fi author Paul Di Filippo and is set in the year 2015. This book will be released in June 2006 at a retail price of $6.99.

In 1954, an expedition found what seemed to be a missing link in the evolutionary chain: an ancient, immensely powerful amphibian Creature. Scientists tried to tame it, break its will, and even change its very being with surgery and torture, but the beast rebelled, killing nearly all in its way. But was the creature truly a throwback, a freak survivor of some prehistoric era, or was it something more?

Six decades later, one scientist attempts to find out, using a time machine to journey into the past. What he finds not only shatters his vision of what the Creature might be, but could change the history of the human race forever.

Turning the conventions of what we feel we know about the Creature on its ear, critically-praised science fiction author Di Filippo reinvents the classic monster with a tale of time travel, horror, and mystery that blends Cold War science fiction with today's cutting edge cyberpunk in a vision of what terrors still lurk in the swamp.

"Di Filippo is like gourmet potato chips to me," said Harlan Ellison, famed science-fiction writer. "I can never eat just one of his short stories."
