Book Description

1 April 2004
TENGU In Japanese mythology, the TENGU is the most terrible of all demons: a living force of evil that infects its followers with the mad strength of the berserk and the capacity to survive attack from any weapon. Now the demon is unleashed in a diabolical plot to wreak vengeance on America for the mega-destruction of Hiroshima...THE DEVILS OF D-DAY At the bridge of Le Vey in July 1944, thirteen black tanks smashed through the German lines in an unstoppable all-destroying fury ride. Thirty-five years later, Dan Mc Cook finds a rusting tank by the roadside, opens it and releases an unimaginable horror...MIRROR Strange things happen in the mirror. Stranger things happen to people who try to probe its secrets. Martin Williams is about to enter the gateway through which all hell will break loose...CHARNEL HOUSE People thought Seymour Willis was crazy. But he insisted he heard someone's - or something's - heartbeat pounding within the walls...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful work 28 July 2004
By A Customer
Two words. Wonderful work. Those two words simply strung together completly weigh this collection of novels up. The devils of D Day is a book I've been trying to get hold of for ages. It, along with the others in this volume do not dissapoint. This is one guy who knows his horror. For me this guy ranks right up there with my favourite horror writers, James Herbert, Stuart Neild, Ramsey Campbell and Shaun Hutson. This is a collection to keep and treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifying, Thrilling and Shocking. 3 Aug 2006
By Debel
Graham Masterton is a genius. All four of these stories are exciting, thrilling and scary. The general theme of these stories is horror. All of them include some form of demon, which are all terrifying. Before reading these stories I never believed that a book could be scary. There is a lot of gore, which is unbelievably well told and so you can actually imagine it happening before your eyes. The characters are realistic, and you can really empathise with them. The storylines are gripping and for once I've actually found a book that I couldn't put down.

Tengu:

Tengu is the story of a Japanese man who is badly disfigured due to Hiroshima, and how a group of friends figure out his plan and try to stop him from having revenge. He has decided to create an army of `Tengus'; men possessed by a great evil Japanese demon with immense strength and power. The plan is that he will send out these invincible creatures to an American Nuclear reactor to blow it up- thus creating a nuclear blast and attaining his revenge. Expect a lot of gore as, people are torn limb from limb, dead bodies walk and many people are slaughtered. This is a great story and appeals to my fondness of Japan. The Tengus are horrifying and believable, and as usual the gore is well-written and exciting. Although it is not my favourite of the stories in the book, it is no means a bad story, or even an average one. Brilliant and thrilling, this is an excellent opening to this omnibus.

The Devils of D-Day:

This story is about an American mapmaker, Dan McCook. Whilst in France, looking for something exciting to write about in his book, he is told the story of a black tank abandoned during the war, which is rumoured to be haunted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Masterton but not at his best 2 Dec 2008
By AlanK47
Mastertons a good writer. This collection is well worth the price for fans.

However all 4 stories lack Somthing. Still good just not up there with Pray or The Wells of Hell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed styles 21 Mar 2008
By Mr. G. Battle VINE VOICE
This horror omnibus covers a considerable period of time for esteemed writer Masterton. The earlier works of 'The Devils of D-Day' and 'Charnel House' contain the mythos of which he is famous for, yet their style of prose is weak, which waters down the impact. 'Tengu' and more so 'Mirror' are full on Masterton, and are more in depth stories. It's a great opportunity to read his early works, which are harder to find on the shelves, and as such the omnibus is recommended for newcomers or existing fans of his work. Scary, original and visceral, all horror lovers should lap up Masterton.
