Monster, 1959 by David Maine

Book Description

K. lives on an island in the South Pacific. Natives worship him, girls are sacrificed to him, legends surround him. A pleasurable life indeed! Until a new kind of creature is left as sacrifice - and those who came with her want her back. They want K. too, all forty feet of him, with his claws and fangs and butterfly wings. If K. could speak, or even think, he might be up for the adventure. As it is, all he can do is react...and protest...and resist."Monster, 1959" is a startling, nuanced view of our world that illuminates a distinct time in American pop culture and raises disturbing questions about who the real monsters are.

Books By Author David Maine

Flood by David Maine Flood, Paperback (March 2014)

For when Noe orders his sons to build an ark, he can't tell them where the wood will come from, just that God will provide. When he sends his daughter-in-law out to gather the animals, he can offer no directions, money, or protection. But once the rain starts, they all come to realise that the harshest test of their faith is just beginning.

Fallen by David Maine Fallen, Paperback (February 2007)

Beginning with the murder of Abel by his brother, this book rewinds through fury and jealousy, lust and despair, right back to the bite from the apple and mankind's first taste of shame. But, what drove Cain to do the unthinkable?

Preservationist by David Maine Preservationist, Paperback / softback (July 2005)

Noah's family (or Noe as he's called here)--his wife, sons, and daughters-in-law--describe what it's like to live with a man touched by God, while struggling against events that cannot be controlled or explained.
