For those who fondly recall summer holidays spent in the company of Guy N Smith or wet weekends with Richard Laymon and Graham Masterton, Clickers is a slice of nostalgic splatterpunk entertainment.
Drawing inspiration from the monster infested works of those authors and a few liberties taken with the likes of Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith, Clickers is a short but sweet package that uses the reader's familiarity with those past works to thrust us right into the mix. We've got the troubled author as protagonist, a selection of pretty girls to play the love interest in peril and an amusingly redneck cop just waiting to go psycho at the first sign of non-regulation trouble.
For a light read one wet evening while taking a break from the bricks that so often dominate the bookshelves, Clickers is ideal. Fast pace, entertaining and chock full of moments guaranteed to put a smile on the gorehounds face.

An author moves into a small town hoping to get through his writers block. Unfortunately writing is going to be the last thing on Ricks mind as Phillipsport gets overcome by prehistoric giant, stinging crabs with a taste for human flesh. So, that would be bad enough, right? Except even giant stinging crabs have something to be afraid of, and so begins the second onslaught of Phillipsport.
This book is great fun, full of B movie madness, but with plenty of death and gore for those who like that! A consistently entertaining read with action that continues full throttle all the way to the end.
Good 4 star read!

I picked up this book as the description sounded like an awesome, trashy b-Movie. Well, "Clickers" certainly delivers on the b-movie monsters but then ramps up to a desperate battle for survival. There is certainly more going on under the hood than simple, schlocky horror. Highly recommended for all horror fans and monster movie maniacs!

Bought this because it claimed to be a B movie creature feature, which I love, in print but its actually much better than that. A high body count with buckets of blood and ripped flesh plus a fair bit of excitement make it a grand read so now I move on to Clickers 2.
