First published as a paperback original in 1987.
''for a while in the 1980s the author threatened to rival Guy N. Smith and James Herbert for the number of novels in which people (or even humankind) is threatened by various monstrous creatures. These began (all paperback originals, though several were later reprinted in hardcover by Severn House) with The Ants * (1979), a faithful sequel to ''The Empire of the Ants'' by H.G. Wells. This was followed by The Curse of Loch Ness (1979), Zombie! (1981), The Morgow Rises! (1982), about a legendary Cornish sea monster, Snowbeast (1983), about a Scottish abominable snowman, Kiss of the Cobra (1984), about a Cobra cult in India and the working of a curse when a tomb is disturbed, Swamp! (1985), about a lake monster in the Florida everglades, Nicor! (1986), about a sea monster disturbed during oil-drilling off the coast of Venezuela, and TROLLNIGHT (1987) where an evil scientist has created a new race of trolls. Though these books are mostly action-based, the author was able through his fund of knowledge of the old legends to give them a degree of credibility that most similar books lack'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
