In this clever and quirky follow-up to The Gates and The Infernals,
Samuel Johnson’s life seems to have finally settled down—after all, he’s still
got the company of his faithful dachshund Boswell and his bumbling demon friend
Nurd; he has foiled the dreaded forces of darkness not once but twice; and he’s
now dating the lovely Lucy Highmore.
But things in the little English town of Biddlecombe rarely
run smoothly for long. Shadows are gathering in the skies; a black heart of
pure evil is bubbling with revenge; and it rather looks as if the multiverse is
about to come to an end, starting with Biddlecombe. When a new toy shop’s
opening goes terrifyingly awry, Samuel must gather a ragtag band of dwarfs,
policemen, and very polite monsters to face down the greatest threat the
Multiverse has ever known, not to mention assorted vampires, a girl with an unnatural
fondness for spiders, and highly flammable unfriendly elves.
The latest installment of John Connolly’s wholly original
and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, The Creeps is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its
best. Download and start listening now!
