It was just an ordinary garbage dump on peaceful Cape Cod. No one ever imagined that conditions were perfect for breeding, that it was a warm womb, fetid, moist, and with food so plentiful that everything creeping, crawling, and slithering could gorge to satiation.

Following in the footsteps of other “animal attack” classics like Jaws and The Rats, Gregory A.

This edition features a new introduction by Too Much Horror Fiction blogger Will Errickson.
