New Monster 1959 by David Maine ( Paperback)
From the author of the highly-acclaimed novels “The Preservationist” and “The Book of Samson” comes a unique and riveting allegory for modern times.

The US Government has been testing the long-term effects of high-level radiation on a few select islands in the South Pacific. Their efforts have produced killer plants, mole people, and a 40 foot creature named K. Covered in fur and feathers, gifted with unusable butterfly wings and the mental capacity of a goldfish, K. is an evolutionary experiment gone very awry. Although he has no real understanding of his world, he knows when he’s hungry, and he knows to follow the drum beats that lead him, every time, to the tree where a woman will be offered to him as sacrifice by the natives. When a group of American hunters stumble across the island, it’s bound to get interesting. Especially when the natives offer up the beautiful wife of the guide to K. Not to be outdone, the Americans manage to capture him. Back in the States, they start a traveling show. The main attraction: K. Monster, 1959is not just a portrait of what may have gone wrong inside the head of a monster like Godzilla, it isn’t just a novel that follows the typical plot of a ’50s monster movie. It’s also a nuanced, detailed and exquisitely written view of a time that had a profound effect on creating the world we live in today. It captures David Maine’s storytelling brilliance as it’s never been seen before.
