Summary: "CARRION COMFORT is one of the three greatest horror novels of the 20th century. Simple as that." -- Stephen King "Epic in scale and scope but intimately disturbing, CARRION COMFORT spans the ages to rewrite history and tug at the very fabric of reality. A nightmarish chronicle of predator and prey that will shatter your world view forever.nbsp; A true classic." -- Guillermo del Toro "CARRION COMFORT is one of the scariest books ever written.nbsp; Whenever I get the question asked Who's your favorite author? my answer is always Dan Simmons." -- James Rollins "One of the few major reinventions of the vampire concept, on a par with Jack Finney's Invasion of the Body Snatchers , Richard Matheson's I Am Legend , and Stephen King's Salem's Lot . -- David Morrell THE PAST...nbsp; Caught behind the lines of Hitler's Final Solution, Saul Laski is one of the multitudes destined to die in the notorious Chelmno extermination camp.nbsp; Until he rises to meet his fate and finds himself face to face with an evil far older, and far greater, than the Nazi's themselves...
