Summary

The Cult Classic Returns!

One day, it starts raining-and never stops. Global super-storms decimate the planet, eradicating most of mankind. Pockets of survivors gather on mountaintops, watching as the waters climb higher and higher. But as the tides rise, something else is rising, too. 

Now, in the midst of an ecological nightmare, the remnants of humanity face a new menace, in a battle that stretches from the rooftops of submerged cities to the mountaintop islands jutting from the sea. What hope does an already-devastated mankind have against this new supernatural adversary. 

The old gods are dead. Now is the time of the Earthworm Gods....

Deadite Press is proud to present this Author's Preferred Edition of Earthworm Gods, including an all-new, lengthy afterword by the author recounting the novel's inspiration, creation, and history.

Highly recommended!

Earthworm Gods
by Brian Keene

This is a scary Lovecraftian premise told from a unique POV (point of view). A deceptively brilliant ‘average-man’ narration done with refreshing literary skill.

Finally, we get a hero who is not a teenager just starting to understand what the peach fuzz on his testies means, or a 25 to 30 year old ex-navy-seal who’s a secret black-op super-solider gone rogue from the government, or a spiritual martial artist traveling through the nine spirit realms, or a science professor who’s hobby is reading all the forbidden texts ever written.
He’s none of those.
He’s just an old guy… who could really do with a smoke about now.

Someone I can relate to.

Remember the first time you saw the movie “Tremors”? The original one with Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward? You were surprised by how it was done? Just average people with no explanations why things were happening, or what the monsters were, where they were coming from or why. This has that kind of insane / fun feel.

I highly recommend this book!

Editing?

Whoever Keene's editor was did him a grave disservice. The Narrator has an audible lisp. The recording is also unedited. Feels like the whole thing, writing, narration, and recording, all in one night.

not original

The last scene in this story is very similar to the story called The worm that was written back in the twenties.
