Shortlisted in the 'Best Novel' category of the 2017 Australian Shadows Awards, SLITHERS is the latest tale of horror sci-fi from the international #1 bestselling author of EIGHT.
On a remote country road, heading out to a weekend party, Tobe West and his friends pick up two hitchhikers. It seems like the right thing to do.
No-one could have predicted the freak car accident that is about to change their lives.
Stranded in the middle of nowhere, Tobe and the others are faced with a landscape suddenly unfamiliar, in a universe that has come loose from its moorings. Strange things slither in the woods, and spectral lights hover just off the road. A petrol station, shining brightly in a world otherwise dark and frightening, promises safe haven, but Tobe learns the biggest threat lies within the very people he's trying to protect.
As reality breaks down and dangers multiply, Tobe must uncover the hidden agenda of one of the survivors… and keep the others safe from something lurking in the darkness.
Something that is hunting them all.
If they are to survive the night, Tobe must face the horrifying truth–that nothing is as it seems, and that they are all part of a larger plan, part of someone else's unfinished business…
