About the Book:
Al Sarrantonio's great lost novel!
In 1992, after the success of Al Sarrantonio's apocalyptic novel Skeletons, Bantam Books was set to publish its follow-up, Underground. But then Bantam, almost overnight, did away with its entire horror line, and Underground went into oblivion.
But now, finally, it's back!
Fans of Al Sarrantonio's horror have been waiting 20 years for Underground to see print, and the time is almost here!
Underground, a picaresque tale of, literally, a trip to Hell, with characters such as Dr. Foostis and Malice in Wonderland, is an amazing journey to the very center of the Earth. Told in the literary spirit of Skeletons, it's sure to astound and entertain. And it's the only unpublished novel ever by horror master Al Sarrantonio.
