Garth Marenghi’s TerrorTome

“Less a book, more a petrifying mind-realm, or ‘psych-zone’, if you will (and you must), TerrorTome charts the paranormal adventures of fictional horror paperback author Nick Steen. Rejected by both Heaven and Hell for his blasphemous visions, Nick is a fallen angel now living in purgative limbo (his hometown of Stalkford), chained (literally) to a cursed typewriter, in a flat which also forms a part-cosmic portal to unexplored demonic realms. When Nick’s imagination escapes, leaking out of his own head, Stalkford is overrun with the fictional horrors of his own books, their incarnate denizens hellbent on destroying Stalkford, outer Stalkford and possibly sightly further. Can Nick (plus Roz, his frequently incorrect female editor) hunt down these horrors of Nick’s tortured imaginata before they destroy Stalkford and beyond (like I just explained)?”

“Garth Marenghi’s TerrorTome will read like my classic oeuvre of paperback horrors crossed with the X-Files, Faustian myth and bits of Manimal. Plus the cover is embossed with genuine foil at my insistence and at your expense. So curl up with my new book, pilgrim, and die…”

We watched Garth Marenghi's Darkplace on Amazon Prime Video last year and LOVED it!

Manimal had the best transformation sequences around! (Thanks, Stan!)

Thankfully, the internet is populated with passionate nuts who do things like compile every transformation into a single video:

Hey, if ever anyone is at a reading lull & looking for something comical & spooky to read check out "The Last Days of Jack Sparks" by Jason Arnopp. i only know about this book & read it because of Billy Martin's (formerly Poppy Z. Brite) recommendation. i seriously COULD NOT put it down! Dare i say, it may change your life a little. Yep, i dare! Changed the way i view certain things now. (don't want to spoil anything)

This really reminded of that book. Plus, i know you're a Huge Poppy fan, so yeah!
