About this deal

Night Of The Crabs’ is the true beginning of the all-out crab war. It’s a classic pulp horror novel that is hard to be bettered for such an unashamed far-fetched enemy. An enjoyable read is most definitely the understatement of the century! So, feast your eyes on the masterful eroticism of Guy N. Smith and ask yourself why he has not achieved success comparable to E. L. James. Holidaymakers on the Welsh coast bask peacefully in the summer sunshine, blissfully unaware of the huge and evil army of giant crustaceans that lurk in the dark, off shore waters…

I'm not afraid of crabs (or any other shellfish. or corn on the cob.) and neither are my friends. We know exactly what to do. Butter. Spices. Beers. Although I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book, this was still quite engaging and cleverly plotted. I'm not sure if it was an editing issue, or if the original text was messed up, but there are a lot of weird things going on in the Kindle edition with exclamation points, capitalized letters in the middle of sentences and other things like that.

Imagine a fishing-obsessed 9 year-old making up the coolest guy he can think of, and you have Klin. But that's not the best part. The best part is the weird sex. Because Guy N. Smith writes sex scenes like a twelve year old who's never seen a naked lady before. The first time Davenport has sex with his lovely new girlfriend, Smith writes the following: You get the impression that Smith has thrown the sex in to keep the punters happy, rather than because his heart in really in it. If Herbert’s depiction of sex in books like ‘The Spear’ is bad, at least he tries to be sexy. Smith doesn’t even seem to bother. One memorable section in ‘Killer Crabs’ reads:

Keep collections to yourself or inspire other shoppers! Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. Even though this book was a lot of fun, it's not exactly well written. I wasn't expecting horror literature, so that was okay with me.The above should clue you that we are dealing with a certain quality of plot complexity, intelligent dialogue and deft characterization. The same standard of quality that made the films of Ed Wood and Roger Corman so famous and gave Mystery Science Theater 3000 the material to become the greatest show ever.
