Floating Dragon By Peter Straub Cover Image
Not available to order.


Experience the true nature of terror in this "deliciously imaginative" (San Francisco Chronicle) horror novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Peter Straub.

The quiet suburban town of Hampstead is threatened by two horrors. One is natural. The hideous unstoppable creation of man’s power gone mad. The other is not natural at all. And it makes the first look like child’s play...

“Unspeakable horror…has ‘Bestseller’ written all over it.”—Los Angeles Times

“Straub’s effects are quite spectacular…I was fairly awed by some of the more nightmarish scenes in Floating Dragon.”—The New York Times

Praise For…

“Peter Straub was, quite simply, one of the finest writers of the last hundred years. He was a poet who painted the beauty and the darkness of the human heart with fine words and exhilarating stories. His fiction disturbed, evoked emotion, and changed all of us who read it. We were lucky to have him.”—Neil Gaiman

Praise for Floating Dragon

“From the dark terrors of the human heart to those of the mysterious, dangerous world all around us, this is Straub's horror on an epic scale.”—Thomas Tessier
“Here is a novel guaranteed to double the national nightmare quotient, so watch out.”—Cosmopolitan

“Buy it today. Anything by Straub is worth several thousand John Sauls and a million V.C. Andrewses.”—Philadelphia Inquirer

“A book that positively bubbles with invention, jammed with characters, color, events, hackle-raising twists of fate, horrific monsters, terrifying nightmares, and a reality that shimmers and shifts as much as the noxious stream from a witch’s cauldron.”—Book World
