THE M. D.: A HORROR STORY. Thomas M. Disch.

THE M. D.: A HORROR STORY. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1991. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "The tale of William 'Billy' Michaels, a precocious child who matures into a brilliant and quite evil man … THE M. D. is an admirably ambitious horror fantasy with some of the scope, but with much more stylistic finesse and satirical bite, than King’s THE STAND and McCammon’s SWAN SONG. Disch’s knack for caustic social satire, honed in his works of dystopian SF, here comes to fruition in a wide-ranging critique of American society: its casual racism and classism, its ingenious ruthlessness, its religious amorality …" - Rob Latham, Necrofile: The Review of Horror Literature #1 (1991), p. 4. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-116. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#158714).
