Jessica Hamilton – Baxter (Sphere, 1979)

Blurb;
Beware Of The Baxter

`The child was even weaker than I thought, and I acted quickly. I was careful not to touch its delicate skin with my teeth. It was a simple matter to grasp its clothing and drag it to the water. It cried out only briefly before I forced it under. It quickly went limp, and I stood back and watched it until I knew its feeble hold on life was broken.’

HE LOOKS LIKE A PET DOG, ONE OF MILLIONS. HE EVEN BEHAVES LIKE ONE – MOST OF THE TIME. BUT HE’S EVIL. INHUMANLY EVIL. AFTER YOU HAVE READ THIS NOVEL, YOU WILL NEVER, EVER, LOOK AT YOUR FAMILY’S PET QUITE LIKE YOU USED TO..

Alan Scott – Project Dracula

Alan Scott – Project Dracula (Sphere, 1971)

Blurb;
At the remote Dwarf Hill Biological Research Station, British scientists have developed micro capsules of deadly anthrax spores. Carried by bats, the capsules become a weapon capable of wiping out a whole population.
When an explosion wrecks the establish­ment the bats are released and a new plague claims its first victims
Edward Alan Scott has created a powerful nightmare of an all-too-possible future. Like John Wyndham’s THE CHRYSALIDS or Michael Crichton’s THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN it is ‘strictly speaking’ science fiction – but the fiction is as real and plausible as the world we live in.
