Publisher's Summary

In a future uncomfortably close to the present day, the apocalypse has surpassed all expectations. Hideous demons roam the streets in an orgy of terror, drawing pleasure from torturing humans as sadistically as possible. Ira, a young San Francisco artist, becomes involved with a strange group of scientists and philosophers desperately trying to end the bloody siege. But the most shocking revelation is yet to come.


What the Critics Say

Waste of time

The description of the book does not reflect well in the story. It reads like an abridged version of a poorly told story.

the flaming liberals fight monsters

Oh god what junk. I couldn't finish it. Anytime a book bases its story around pseudo intellectual fringe groups of academe, forget it. I was waiting for one of the whiney narrators to muse, ?but don?t the demon?s have a right to kill us? After all we are dirty usurping, power drunk Americans; that have never done one good thing for the world.? Stale liberal propaganda with a smidge of LSD induced way out sci-fi, and some sex thrown in for good measure. Trust me this isn?t horror; just horrible. It?s merely a political statement masked behind a horror/sci-fi story. It?s Pravda with a light show. I knew I was in trouble when I heard super scenic Harlan Ellison did some of the narration (is there anything that man doesn?t hate?oh yeah?he loves himself that?s right) do yourself a favor, get anything else?anything!!!
