Riassunto: The Uglimen by Mark Morris (PS Publishing, £8.00, 144 pages, limited edition signed, numbered, large paperback, also available as limited edition signed, numbered hardback, priced £25.00, published 2002.) One hole in the market that PS Publishing amongst cover scanothers are filling is the publication of stories that are too long to fit in most magazines or anthologies but are too uncommercially short to be published as books -- long novellas or short novels, depending on which side of 40,000 words their wordcount falls. At around 45,000 words, The Uglimen falls into this literary Bermuda Triangle: you'd imagine that to be published it would normally have to accrete subplot sufficient to double its length, which may well not be to its benefit. As it stands, it's a short tight horror tale, lean of fat and efficiently told though hardly groundbreakingly original. A short prologue is set in 1969 Los Angeles. Charlie and Doug are at the airport waiting to board the flight home to England. They're nervous, jittery, desperate to escape something: quite what, we won't learn until later. Flash forward to 2001. Rob Loomis is told by his mother that his father has hung himself. But who is the man Rob sees at the funeral? And who is the man who phones him to tell him the Uglimen are coming? The answers to these questions take Rob and his girlfriend Jessica on a journey which tells him plenty of things he didn't know about his own past. And there are a few twists before you get to the end. The Uglimen themselves, members of a self-mutilating religious sect, are kept much in the background, as hired muscle for the real villain of the piece, and to add to the atmosphere of threat Morris builds up. They could perhaps be made more of, as "religiously-inspired fanatic" is the sum total of their characterisation. -- Infinity Plus

Descrizione libro PS:, Harrogate, 2002. First edition, TPBO, Trade paperback, SIGNED, NEW, Rob's mother calls to tell him that his father has hung himself. Rob has to cope with his grief and that of his mother, but he also has to cope with a mysterious hissing voice on the phone that informs him that his father was murdered by forces known as the uglimen. If that's true, why does Rob keep catching glimpses of his father? Is Rob the next target of the mysterious killer? In order to find the truth, Rob must confront his own fears and delve deep into his father's past, particularly his father's summer in California in 1969 - the summer of love. Neat. We don't have to work very hard to sell these PS books, they seem to sell themselves. They're never available for long. I recommend an early order. The paperback edition is limited to 500 signed and numbered copies. Introduction by Stephen Laws. Codice libro della libreria 16909

Descrizione libro PS Publishing, 2002, 2002. Trade Paperback. Condizione libro: As New. First Edition. As New. First Edition. Private Press. Signed by Author. Harrogate, UK: PS Publishing, 2002. Pictorial Cover. Fine. First trade paperback edition. Introduction by Stephen Laws. One of 500 numbered paperback copies signed by the author. "The uglimen are coming. Watch your back. They killed your dad. They'll kill you too if they can." Rob Loomis has everything he could wish for: a beautiful girlfriend, a job he loves, a nice flat in London. Life is sweet - until the day that his mother rings him at work to tell him that his quiet, thoughtful and apparently contented father has hung himself from the banister of their family home. Before long, Rob finds that it is not only his own and his mother's grief that he has to cope with. A mysterious, hissing voice on the phone informs him that his father was murdered, and that his murderers - the uglimen - are targeting Rob as their next victim. But if Rob's father really is dead, why does Rob glimpse him, standing between distant trees, watching his own funeral? Is his father a phantom? A figment of Rob's imagination? Or has he somehow faked his own death in order to avoid some terrible retribution? To discover the truth, Rob must confront and accept shocking revelations about his father, must delve deep into his father's past, and in particular into certain events that occurred in California in 1969, during the fabled summer of love. For it was here where his father made the biggest mistake of his life, where his reckless actions were to have such devastating consequences that they would destroy not only his life, but the lives of all those around him.
