Also in the same vein by Hutson is Slugs (made into the hilariously disgusting movie: Slugs (Midnight Madness)) and its even more demented sequel, Breeding Ground, as well as his vampire novel, Erebus.
You can get three Shaun Hutson novels in one with Slugs ;: Spawn ; Erebus or Shaun Hutson Omnibus: "Relics", "Spawn", "Shadows".Shadows is an all right novel, not one of his best or worst, but I never read RELICS. If I were you, I'd get the first omnibus, as Slugs/Spawn/Erebus are three of his best 1980s gorefests.
Highly recommended for readers of "true, down-to-earth" horror.
The book starts with Harold Pierce accidentally starting a fire in his home and accidentally killing his mother and baby brother in what is probably the most brutally graphic burning scene ever written.
Years later he is released from a mental home where he is given a job at a local hospital burning aborted foetuses. Harold feels sorry for them and burries them in a field outside the hospital. There is soon a freak lightening storm which brings the foetus' back to life...
The teacher came down to the bottom of the class where I was hunched over this book - I hadn't noticed the room had gone quiet or that he was looming over me until his hand slapped down on the page.
He took it to the front and flicked through a couple of pages and then with a voice of disgust advised that this was not the sort of thing nice people read.
When I got home with my book that night I promised myself I would finish it now just to spite him.
It was utterly terrifying. Aborted featuses, loss of life.
I only read it the once but have always remembered being afraid and I associate this book with my independance, the first time I exercised my will against teacher bullies!
Read it, know it, be it!
I wasn't aware that, when an abortion is performed in Britain, the fetus is sent to the basement in a basket where a depressed caretaker throws it in the incinerator!!! Well; USED too - now he does different things with those fetuses....
I'll leave Shaun to tell you about what.
Anyway - loved it, didn't much manage to respect it - but LOVED it!!!
