Koontz, Dean R.
A DARKNESS IN MY SOUL
Even though there is a noticeable line next to spine and spine has a line or ridge down length, this is tight and very square - it may be unread. Age tanning is mild and uniform; no stamps marks or writing.
Koontz started out as a Science Fiction writer, but didn't find much recognition until he worked out the kind of tale he does best - a mix of thriller, horror, and science fiction. Then he became a best-selling author, and his early novels (the first dozen under his own name and early ones under pseudonym) - are now rarities because they have not been reprinted.
A Darkness In My Soul - An early novel by Dean R. Koontz. The seed for this novel was the story of the same title, from Fantastic January 1968.
Simeon Kelly was the first successful product of the Artificial Creation laboratory - s the government workshop for the production of new talents by tampering with the genes of the unborn. Simeon would only work for them under compulsion, and the generals had to be extreme to get him to probe the mind of the thing called Child. In that incredibly monstrous infant appeared to be the potential for whole oceans of inventions and an entire cosmos of total creativity- a God?. But Child was vicious, insane, and short-lived. His first words to Simeon? "I don't like you. You're going to be sorry you came here. I'm going to see to that."
