Brian Smith (bmanisms) Hi there, I'm racking my brain trying to remember a horror novel I read in the 90s. It went through a guys experience when the local pike fish become killers after toxic waster contaminating the local lake. Late on the toxic waste forms an acid rain fog.

I remember it being 300-400 pages, when as a mass market paperback. I don't think it's "The Pike" by Cliff Twemlow - (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...), even though I did read that too, but don't remember what it's about).

Would be so thankful is someone could help!
Brian

John Skipp and Craig Sector were top horror authors in the 80's and 90's. See if this could be the book: The Bridge by John Skipp

Good old Skipp and Spector! I think I've only read one or two of theirs...The Light at the End and 1 other.
Nice job, M!

Animals is really good, too.

Marie | 3442 comments Thanks Char! I sort of had forgotten about those authors then something clicked in my head about what Brian was talking about, so I researched it because it sounded familiar to me too. Actually it did me good to research it as now I can go back to find books that I have not read by Skipp and Spector.

Brian Smith (bmanisms) Wow thanks M! I'll read it and see if it's the one!
