Douglas Ng that it was a warm womb fetid moist and with food so plentiful that everything crawling creeping and slithering could gorge. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Video review coming shortly The Nest written by Gregory A Douglas aka Eli Cantor was originally published by Zebra Books in 1980 Since then the novel has been out of print available only to those persistent enough to find it in used bookstores Fortunately that is no longer the issue thanks to Valancourt Books and their Paperbacks from Hell series With the help of author Grady Hendrix and vintage horror expert Will Errickson Valancourt is reprinting five vintage horrors for modern day readersThere is really no better starting place for the Paperbacks from Hell line than The Nest It flawlessly captures the gory goopy animal attack entertainment of the 70s and 80s The story is simple enough mutated roaches overtake a Cape Cod town and begin eating everyone That s really all you need to know about the plot Sure we have a large cast of small town characters but the focus is often than not on the vicious attacks of man eating roachesBy vicious attacks I mean vicious attacks These roaches are unstoppable They eat everything including the bones so as you can imagine the book is incredibly gruesome There are a few kill scenes that go on for pages describing in detail the extent to which these roaches feast on human flesh Combining those gore filled scenes with Douglas s flowery purple prose you have yourself a strange concoction of dark humor and truly unsettling hopelessnessTypically I find flowery writing to be very off putting an attempt at poetry that comes off as pretension The Nest definitely has that vibe but something about reading horrible gory deaths written in such an artsy way had me rolling on the floor It often feels like the author is parodying high brow literature so I get the impression that Mr Douglas knew what he was doing hereEven though I found this aspect of The Nest to be very humorous there are times when the writing serves a different purpose This is where that unsettling hopelessness comes into play Imagine thousands of hungry man eating roaches scrambling toward you You stomp on as many as you can before you lock yourself in a room Some of the insects sueeze under the door while others chew their way through the wood They won t stop coming A flying roach lands on you cheek and begins biting You slap at it and its blood splatters into your eyes temporarily blinding you You can t see anything But you can feel feel the roaches covering your body They burrow into your skin As you slap at them take their place Even if you get all the bugs off your body you know it s too late they are already inside you eating you from the inside Pretty hopeless right Once the characters are in the presence of these roaches there is no escaping The insects are as relentless as Douglas s writingUnfortunately while this novel is filled with gore terror humor and several shocking moments there are many scenes in which our characters sit around discussing the science of roaches These scenes are long drawn out and very boring For this reason I have to deduct a star and a half from an otherwise bonkers five star book On the bright side I now know about roaches than I ever thought possibleOverall The Nest was a wildly entertaining reading experience made even enjoyable by Will Errickson s well written introduction If you like small town horror and animal attack books this is a must read 35 starsThe first three books in the Paperbacks from Hell series are available now You can subscribe to have those three books shipped to you plus the other two once they become available I sincerely hope Valancourt continues the series for another wave of vintage horror paperbacks
