I recently read another book by this author, (two authors, really, using the pseudonym of Harry Adam Knight. Get it? HAK?), called SLIMER.
Author: Harry Knight. Publisher: Franklin Watts, London, 1989. What would happen if, through a genetic experiment gone awry, fungi-mushrooms, toadstools, molds and yeasts-were to go out of control and grow with unprecedented vigor and speed and tenacity, and in places formerly inimicable to them? A first-rate and vivid thriller. Part one. The Spreading.
By Harry Adam Knight. Author: Harry Adam Knight. When I was given this book I must admit I had my doubts. The front cover didn’t appeal, the title seemed rather dated and the type of book I was expecting seemed very much planted in the 80’s. Reading through the first few pages and I wasn’t disappointed. It was exactly as I feared.

The Fungus is a 191-page horror novel written by the duo known as Harry Adam Knight. First published in 1985, it is being re-released by Valancourt Books. Note: There is a small rape scene in this book. However, the circumstances are so outlandish that I didn’t even get a twinge at it. Instead it just had me going Eww! Gross! and giggling because I was so disgusted. I doubt it’ll trigger anyone, but just a heads-up. The idea behind ‘The Fungus’ is one that I don’t think is ever going to get old.
Harry Adam Knight was a pseudonym used by Australian (resident in London) SF author and film critic John Brosnan, sometimes in collaboration with Leroy Kettle. THE FUNGUS is one of the HAK collaborations and the initials of the pseudonym give an indication of what Brosnan and Kettle thought of the work published under the name. Despite that, however, THE FUNGUS is typical of British disaster novels in which the institutions of the state are quickly overwhelmed by a swift change in the ecological balance.
