Having survived the Mutant onslaught, C.L.A.S.H. abandons their shadowy, guerilla tactics to commit a series of rebellious acts, all of them designed with a single purpose—to destroy the Protectorate’s illusion of supreme authority.

Once the dust of insurrection settles, however, C.L.A.S.H. must contend with the super-human fury of the Council of Seven!

All this, plus a sneak peak into the origins of Dusk, Shrapnel and Knave!

Story: Jeff Rice

In 1972, Jeff Rice’s novel The Night Stalker introduced Carl Kolchak to the world. This spine-tingling novel of supernatural terror became an instant bestseller and served as the basis for the film of the same name, starring Darren McGavin and adapted by legendary Twilight Zone screenwriter Richard Matheson.

After The Night Stalker became the one of the highest rated television movies of all time, a sequel, The Night Strangler, was released the following year to great acclaim.

Carl Kolchak, as the world’s first paranormal investigator, would prove to be an irresistible draw for viewers and inspire a weekly dramatic television series which debuted in 1974.

Now, after more than three decades out of print, Kolchak’s creator Jeff Rice has agreed to release the original novels which sparked a television phenomenon! At last, The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler are together in one volume…
