One of the most powerful, shocking and insightful science/horror novels I ever read was CAIN by James Byron Huggins [former soldier, cop and award winning journalist] from Alabama. This was a 1997 copyright novel [hardcopy] that I don’t think ever came out in paperback for U.S.A. distribution, however; was released hardback and paperback thru Amazon http://www.amazon.com and Amazon still has some older copies from sellers.
I waited since 1997 for the book to turn into a movie but it never happened. This was a most incredible story ever wrote and including the spirit/supernatural LINK with a giant invincible humanoid dug up by the CIA and then rebuilt by science ~ they rebuilt soul-less flesh and transformed it into a killing machine, a villian whose power for evil is unmatched in this world, at this time…..!
A wounded god in the Middle East, dug up by an Israeli researcher in a portal ~ ‘he’ had never seen light through mortal/human eyes, but now ‘The mortal fools succeeded’…..! AND who would try to stop the UNSTOPPABLE ~ Soloman, a soldier who lost his family, his will to live; Marcelle, a priest who had lost his faith; and Dr. Maggie Milton, the beautiful young scientist who unwittingly helped to unleash CAIN on the world.
NOW, in December, 2011 ~ I received word that Bruce Willis has bought the rights for the book CAIN from James Byron Huggins and is working on this for a movie……!
I you haven’t read a real “thriller” in a long time and your blood isn’t running cold with the fear of supernatural EVIL entry into this world, then CAIN is a PAGE-TURNER ……..Still a few old copies left on Amazon http://www.amazon.com ……………………
Now in my estimation James Byron Huggins is clearly in the ranks with Dean A. Koontz !
If we are here on the planet just a little longer, you might want to read CAIN and wonder if EVIL could be unleashed ~ reminds me of Russ Disdar’s Black Awakening! COMING this way, almost 2012………………………………………………………
