I'd never seen or heard of these British paperbacks until I spotted a set of four battered copies in a secondhand book store. Just the whole idea made me laugh-out-loud so - inevitably - I snapped (ahem) them up.
This must have been a steady little earner for the writer and publisher as the paperbacks span a five year period between 1976 and 81.
I must confess, I've not read any of them yet. The morning and afternoon commute is well catered for by free papers and - besides - I might attract a few weird looks on the tube. That means - at the moment - there's not much more I can say about these sure-to-be-fine tomes after than to speculate why THE ASYLUM haven't added whopping killer crustaceans to their menagerie of giant-sized animal killer machines.
