I look forward to reading more William Essex aka John Tigges, yet another Horror Boom writer with A fairly ludicrous slice of Horror Boom creature horror. About 60 or 70 pages could have been trimmed from it, it’s pretty bloated at 360 pages. It’s so over the top sleazy and schlocky in places that I definitely had a good time reading it, overall. A very dumb book, but I don’t read these things to be enlightened. If you’re looking for some good old, gross, dumb horror, you won’t be disappointed.

Essex was an American whaler from Nantucket, Massachusetts, which was launched in 1799

Essex was an American whaler from Nantucket, Massachusetts, which was launched in 1799. In 1820, while at sea in the southern Pacific Ocean under the command of Captain George Pollard J. she was attacked and sunk by a sperm whale. Stranded thousands of miles from the coast of South America with little food and water, the 20-man crew was forced to make for land in the ship's surviving whaleboats.

William Essex (. 784 – 29 December 1869, Brighton), was an English enamel-painter. He was the chief ry exponent of enamel painting, an art which had been extended from portrait miniatures to larger enamel plaques by Henry Bone in the early nineteenth century. Little is known of the parentage and early life of William Essex and his brother Alfred (died 1781).

This book contains some minor shelf/reading wear on cover/dust jacket. The Essex Serpent is a wonderfully satisfying novel. Ford Madox Ford thought the glory of the novel was its ability to make the reader think and feel at the same time. Some page corners might have some minor creases. This one does just that.

1989) A novel by William Essex (John Tigges). Used availability for John Tigges's From Below. October 1989 : USA Paperback.

Writer, children and adults, fiction and fact. Creative Director, ha ha, of publishing start-up. If you go there, I wish you many happy yesterdays.

Here is a classic collection from one of America’s greatest authors. Winner of the National Book Award. Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Though these short stories have universal appeal, they are intensely local in setting. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner’s stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of the human condition.

Book by Essex, William
  • "From Below", one of three published works by John Tigges under his pseudonym of William Essex, is an entertaining and quick horror read. This was one of the multitude of horror novels published during the horror boom of the mid 80s to mid 90s.
    The story involves leeches that have grown to enormous sizes -- over a foot and a half in length each. Since they can reproduce on their own, they reproduce at a rapid rate. However, this requires them to find constant sources of food. They emerge from the sewers through pipes and into houses to find their prey. A large number of people are killed before anyone has a clue as to what caused the deaths.
    While an entertaining and quick read, the book does have its share of faults. These faults are common amongst the novels mass produced/published at the time. The plot is thin, the characters run around totally clueless and don't seem to want to discover the cause of the deaths, and the ending is short and a big letdown. More ingenious ways could have been utilized to destroy the leeches, but an obvious way to kill them was used, but not used in a believable manner. Overall, fans of generic horror (like myself) will enjoy this novel. If you prefer deeper horror with better story development, you might want to steer clear of this one.

  • loved this book. Its over the top and ridiculous, and ive read a lot of books where that is not pulled off but it is here. Leeches are struck by lightning and for some reason it makes them big leeches that eat people. Its basically chomp chomp chomp, go find the next person, chomp chomp chomp, go find the next person, chomp chomp chomp....you get the idea. If little to no plot gorehound movies from the 80s aren't your thing then don't read this book. But I for one love that kinda thing if its done right. And the girls taking there clothes off doesn't hurt. Reminds me of all those fun monster movies I used to watch. I love how these leeches will literally pick a person clean before leaving them. They just leave a messy skeleton. And the author doesn't skip on the details of the deaths. Which is another thing that I enjoy. Pick this one up.

  • Fans of Shaun Hutson's SLUGS and BREEDING GROUND will probably enjoy this and it makes a perfect companion piece to those. Yes, the ending was a bit of a letdown, but that's mostly because there's so many deaths/attacks up to that point that the climax did seem rather minuscule and rushed. There's also some in-jokes that lighten the mood but at the same time just makes the reader envision the author patting himself on the back, which momentarily took me out of the story. Also, the words spoor and annelid did become a bit tiring after constantly popping up. Still, it's a pretty good book (for fans of this stuff) that I'll eventually read again.
