RIP Guy N. Smith (1939 - 2020)

Prolific pulp-horror writer Guy N. Smith has passed at age 81, according to his website, from what looks to be COVID-19 complications. 2020 is just determined to squeeze out every last bit of misery from us, ugh. Maybe soothe yourself with even more Smith covers here and here. Be well, everybody.

That's sad news. He was prolific and you always knew you'd be in for a ride with one of his books. Damn Covid-19!

Sad indeed 😢

At the age of 12, I read my first "modern" horror novel: Smith's Alligators (a book in which the most grusome death is caused by slugs!)

How ironic that he would write multiple books about the country being assailed by epidemics (mishandled by government figures) only for this to get him!

Rest In Peace, Guy N. Smith. Your books have entertained me since my early teens. You shall forever live on within your novels.

RIP in peace, Mr. Smith. I remember reading "The Crabs"(?) when I was about ten & a huge James Herbert fan (before I matriculated out & on to King & Barker. Good fun...
