The Cell & Other Transmorphic Tales
Edited by Stephen Jones, Afterword by Kim Newman
More than forty-five years after his first collection was published, here is an original volume of David Case’s transformative tales that showcases the author’s remarkable psycho-sexual fiction combined with the tropes of the classic werewolf story.
Beginning with the powerful novella that gave its title to that inaugural collection, The Cell & Other Transmorphic Tales also includes such memorable stories as ‘Strange Roots’, ‘Among the Wolves’, ‘A Cross to Bear’ and ‘The Hunter’. With a personal Introduction from award-winning editor Stephen Jones and an exclusive Afterword by acclaimed film writer Kim Newman, in which he discusses how ‘The Hunter’ was adapted into the 1970s TV movie Scream of the Wolf, this volume showcases the work of one of the genre’s finest exponents of the macabre.
“Let us hear more of David Case . . . The field needs more from the author of ‘The Hunter’, a modern classic worthy to stand beside ‘The Most Dangerous Game’.” – Ramsey Campbell
