Inhaltsangabe: Brand new edition of the 1973 Classic with an introduction by Jeannot Szwarc. Out of the brimstone and hellfire of the North Carolina sandhills comes a simple, deadly challenge to man's supremacy on earth: The Hephaestus Plague. Blind, black, armoured and unstoppable a fire making beetle with an amazing scientific secret. A secret that the reclusive, monomaniacal Professor Parmiter is obsessed with sharing and an insect whose biological destiny he is determined to fulfill, without regard for the human consequences. With a preface by Jeannot Szwarc, director of the motion picture based on the novel, BUG (1975), and of hit television show Heroes, this new edition puts this brilliant novel back in its quintessential context.
Über den Autor: Thomas Page, author of The Hephaestus Plague, was born in Washington D.C., and is a graduate of Elon College and The University of North Carolina. He has a major in English and an M.F.A in film from Columbia University. He grew up in North Carolina. Having worked as a bartender, fossil cleaner, Radio DJ, fortuneteller, advertising copywriter and Hollywood script doctor he turned his hand to literature in 1973 producing a string of successful science fiction novels, murder mysteries and non-fiction titles. The Hephaestus Plague was made into a major motion picture in 1975, BUG, co-written by famous horror movie auteur William Castle and directed by Jeannot Swarc, who has written a foreword for the new Trashface edition of the book. A wanderer by nature, Thomas has lived in Middletown Ohio, Durham North Carolina, New York City, Western Massachusetts, Denver Colorado and Los Angeles CA, finally settling in Santa Monica California. His lifelong love of biology lead to what he considers his greatest achievement: "I believe my one immortal contribution to the world was finding a small fossil deposit in the west which was named after me (Page One) and which was determined to consist of carnivorous bird droppings. It is around 10 million years old and likely to be there 10 million years from now. Writers come and go through the ages but bird sh*t is immortal. Thomas lives and works in Santa Monica, California and has a married daughter who lives in Paris, France. Not Texas.
