Popy | 2 comments Theres a horror book i read as a child, i don't remember alot from it except two scenes. In one scene there was this woman watching a guy from outside his house through a window and he was just watching static on tv for hours and seemingly masturbating. Then theres a scene where the same woman (i think) gets chased by this swarm of flying glowing bugs and they catch her and swarm all over her - they somehow make her feel aroused but something inside her tells her she will die if she gives in so she escapes.

I don't remember much more, I think the third act is underground (mine shaft or cave) and it becomes Cthulhu like.

The setting was a small usa town i think and the gist is something was taking over / turning the inhabitants.

I think I read this early 2000's (1999 - 2004 would be my best guess)

Any help would be much apreciated , thanks!

It could be, just had a look at some reviews and they depict it as kind of extreme. I don't remember my book being that graphic but I'm going to look into it and let you know if that's the one. Thanks for the reply

I added some plot details to the topic header. Feel free to update it (without spoilers) using the small "edit" link on the desktop website (not the mobile app).

Katie | 3 comments “Needful Things?” I don’t remember all of the details but it sounds like it could be that book by Stephen King.

Here's the Google Books preview of Needful Things by Stephen King - Katie's suggestion - https://books.google.com/books?id=r7U... There are different cover images.

Here's the Wikipedia summary (with spoilers) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needful...

[on hiatus] The rockabilly werewolf from Mars | 1527 comments I did a bit of searching around, and came across this book: The Abyss. It appears to involve a small mining town menaced by supernatural forces, so I thought I'd mention it.
