Idiotic giant mantis slaughter fest that inexplicably goes for £80/100 on eBay. Anyway got a copy I can have? Cheers.

Everything I read about this makes it sound like the most insane thing ever published. I can't believe it was ever on shelves. I hope one day I will have a copy of my own. Every other book ever written is definitely shit by comparison.

I did have a copy many years ago, picked up in a jumble sale for about 10p.

Think I sold it on Amazon a few years ago, though. Certainly not for that money, unfortunately. I’ll have a look.

I've got this and re-read it last summer. It is as crazy as you've heard. Is it correct that the author was a little old lady, as has been suggested in recent years?

Looks to be so yeah, a woman in her 60s who looked a bit like Joan Sanderson.

It's worth checking Amazon marketplace from time to time I bought copies for myself and a friend a year or so back for under a tenner each.

I think Charles Platt's The Gas is even more crazy than this.

Almost mentioned 'The Gas' myself. Yeah, equally crackers. If I ever came into millions, I would waste a chunk of it on trying to produce a movie version. A man's gotta have a dream. Maybe I'd fund a film version of 'Eat Them Alive' too, come to think of it.

God, could you imagine the reaction on Twitter to a film of The Gas?

I mean this with 100% seriousness, if anyone is willing to sell me their copy of this, or comes across a copy at £20 or under, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. The lack of a Kindle edition is devastating me.

Buying that Gas book.

Bought The Gas and read a bit.
