Can't Wait Wednesday-The Devil's Fingers


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet. 

NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. 


WHAT HAS LONG PINK FINGERS AND SMELLS LIKE ROTTING FLESH?
It is a slime-covered fungus known for its pinkish red tentacles and pungent odor. It is indigenous to Australia but has spread to North America. Its Latin name is Clathrus Archeri, also known as Octopus Stinkhorn. Most people call it The Devil's Fingers . . .

I DON'T KNOW BUT IT'S GROWING ON YOUR NECK.
Deep in the woods of Washington, botanist Autumn Winters stumbles onto a field of the luridly colored fungi. Two of her fellow campers make the mistake of touching it. Now it's growing on them. Fleshy gelatinous pods. Sprouting from their skin. Feeding on their blood . . .

AND IT'S STILL GROWING.
Autumn watches in horror as her friends are transformed into monstrosities - grotesque, human-fungal hybrids as contagious and deadly as any virus. Autumn knows she must destroy these mutations before they return to civilization. But if there's one thing that spreads faster than fear, it's The Devil's Fingers . . .


Yes to this one, coming from a favourite author in October this year! It seems to have a series name of One Size Eats All, which is exciting! I don't know if this is going to be a short story like the Mail Order Massacres but I'll be grabbing it anyway!

  1. This cover is so weird. I like it tho. It sounds like an invasion of the body snatchers but not. I have to put this on my TBR!
