Fungoid - by William Meikle - Willie puts the fun back in fungus

4 of 5 Stars     Review copy

Fungoid is a terrific little "What if?" story sprinkled with enough factoids to up the believability factor.

Things escalated quickly for the rapid response team in the port of St. John's.  It's already all over town—and we have no idea what it is or how to stop it.

The story unfolds at a blistering pace as Meikle continues to raise the stakes in his latest terror-filled read.

As fantastical as the subject matter was , the characters each played to their individual strengths and were completely believable in their actions.

The situation is dire and the prospect for mankind's survival is bleak.  The question has to be asked—and might be answered here, right in front of our eyes, "Is this the way the world ends?"

I've yet to read a Willie Meikle story I didn't enjoy.  Recommended.

Fungoid is available in both paperback and e-book formats from Darkfuse publishing.

From the author's bio - I am a Scottish writer, now living in Canada, with twenty novels published in the genre press and over 300 short story credits in thirteen countries. I live in Newfoundland with whales, bald eagles and icebergs for company and when I'm not writing I drink beer, play guitar and dream of fortune and glory.
