Prepare to squirm....

Waiter, there’s a bug in my soup,” – Anonymous. 

 

A horrifying glimpse into the not-too-distant future!


 Spawned by the effects of Global Warming, those annoying household pests of old have been replaced by an infinitely more vicious species of hybrid insect and froth-spewing rodent…mutated bug and rat swarms which actually seek out and hunger for human flesh!

 
Thus, the 21st Century exterminator was born…equipped with a ‘can-kill’ attitude, state-of-the art equipment and bug-melting pesticides, these modern-day pest assassins risk both life and limb while facing down the likes of  Jamaican Cannibal Roaches, Skin-bore Ants, porcupine mantises and the ever-dreaded, ultra-poisonous Dual-Fanged Daddy Long-Legs! 


Read in spine-tingling anticipation as six of the planet’s most noted pest control specialists, to include such industry luminaries as Gaven ‘The Texas Terminator’ McCloud,  Gil ‘Doctor Death’ Braggs, Luther ‘The Ebony Assassin’ Bohannon and Virgil ‘The Cleaner’ Hobbs, face down the newest and greatest threat of all! 


Find out which of these stalwart adventurers will survive and who will merely join the mutilated ranks of the mutant-bug buffet! 


So don’t bother checking your personal space for creepy, crawly, multi-legged intruders…just leave those brittle nerves behind and give a shout out for the brave men and women who so proudly profess to be the ‘BUG STOMPERS OF THE 21St CENTURY!’ 

 
****************************************

Terry Lloyd Vinson’s Sci-Fi action/adventure novel ‘BUG STOMPERS of The 21sT Century’ combines futuristic settings with a storyline that brings to mind such classic genre tales as ‘THEM”, ‘FOOD of the GODS’ and ‘TARANTULA', a tongue-in-check chiller with a killer payoff. 

 

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Having once been employed as a pest control technician himself, Vinson notes his past experiences as a ‘20th Century BUG STOMPER’ as inspiriting the project, and hopes the story comes across as a sincere, respectful salute to the men and women who make a living at such an overlooked, underappreciated craft. 

 

 Currently on-sale at Double-Dragon Publishing.  Soon to be available at Fictionwise.com, Amazon.com and other on-line retailers.

A 'Bug-Stomping' good time!!!
