Британският писател Греъм Мастертън е един от най-популярните хорър автори в света. Публикувал е десетки романи и разкази на ужаса, част от които спадат към т. нар. сплетърпънк – поджанр на хоръра, който се характеризира с детайлни сцени на секс, насилие и смърт, и социопатични, будещи отвращение герои (вижте разказа "Eric the Pie").

Изображение

У нас е издаден най-известният му роман на ужаса - "Маниту - кошмар в Манхатън" (Бард, 1993).
За съжаление останалите книги от поредицата за злия шаман Маниту така и не се появиха на български език.

Вижте как са изглеждали последните две глави на "Маниту-кошмар в Манхатън", преди издателят да накара Греъм Мастертън да ги пренапише.

Освен горния роман, на български са издадени още две негови хорър произведения:
- разказът "Ерик Пая", публикуван през 1990 във в-к "Други светове"
- разказът "Ирландският въпрос", публикуван в антологията "Сияйната пирамида" (Златорог, 1999)

"The Manitou" by Graham Masterton *
www.amazon.com

A harrowing story of the reincarnation of a red Indian Medicine Man in modern day New York. The book features the first appearance of the rogue psychic, Harry Erskine, who, with the help of medicine man, Singing Rock enters into battle against the shaman, Misquamacus.
Fast-paced and brimming with Indian legends. Despite the fact that this is Masterton's first novel it's still a surprisingly shocking tale. Told in the first person narrative.

It only grows at night. Karen Tandy was a sweet and unassuming girl until she discovers the mysterious lump growing underneath her skin. As the doctors and specialists are puzzling over the growth, Karen's personality is beginning to drastically change. The doctors decide there is only one thing to do, cut out the lump. But then it moved. Now a chain reaction has begun and everyone who comes in contact with Karen Tandy understands the very depths of terror. Her body and soul are being taken over by a black spirit over four centuries old. He is the remembrance of the evils the white man has bestowed on the Indian people and the vengeance that has waited four hundred years to surface. He is the Manitou.

Rebenge of the Manitou" by Graham Masterton (Manitou 2)
www.amazon.com

No one believed little Toby Fenner when he described the man in the wardrobe. A man whose face seemed to grow from the very wood. But by then, things had gone too far. Misquamacus has found a way to return, and this time he won't be beaten so easily.
Revenge of the Manitou is the follow-up to The Manitou, which once again features Harry Erskine, Singing Rock, and a host of Indian stories creating a spine-tingling sequel with some disturbingly horrific passages.

"Burial" by Graham Masterton (Manitou 3)
www.amazon.com

The third in the Manitou series, Burial features popular character Harry Erskine, once again on the trail of the evil Indian Medicine Man, Misquamacus. Mass devastation is wrought on the American people in revenge for the desolation they wrought on his.
A big, apocalyptic book, full of destruction on a big scale. The most adventurous of the Manitou books, full of horrific set-pieces and doses of Masterton's trademark black humour.

Masterton's third outing with the Manitou provides another spine-tingling excursion into the supernatural universe, the "black infinite lake that lies beneath our feet." The series hero, small-time scam artist Harry Erskine, is again drawn into danger by the anger of American Indian spirits. From the East Coast to the West, the white man's world is being torn asunder by ghosts seeking revenge, and Harry, as well as his companions Karen, Papago Joe the shaman, and E. C. Dude, is forced to combat the vengeful spirits. The eerie manifestations of the Manitou continue to dismay and baffle until the final, authoritative, chilling climax.

Like all good horror stories, this moves from the familiar and credible to the fanciful and disturbing... the drama tense, the writing good.

"Manitou Blood" by Graham Masterton (Manitou 4)
www.amazon.com

A bizarre epidemic is sweeping New York City. Doctors can only watch as victims fall prey to a very unusual blood disorder. They become unable to eat solid food, are extremely sensitive to daylight and they have an irresistible need to drink human blood. As panic, bloodlust and death grip the city, a few begin to consider the unimaginable: Could the old folktales and legends be true? Could the epidemic be the work of vampires? Their search for the truth will lead them to shadowy realms where very few dare to go. They will seek help from both the living and the dead. And they will realize that their worst fear was only the beginning.

"Blind Panic" by Graham Masterton (Manitou 5)
www.amazon.com

Without warning, the President of the United States is struck blind. At the same time, high above the Rockies, the pilot and crew of a 747 suddenly find that they have lost their sight. Hundreds and then thousands of people all across America are blinded, causing dozens of passenger airplanes to crash into built-up areas, scores of catastrophic highway pile-ups, and countless minor tragedies. Communications fail, TV screens go blank and American civilization is taken back two hundred years overnight. Self-styled mystic Harry Erskine is telling the fortunes of gullible old ladies in Miami when his friend Amelia Crusoe, a genuine psychic, calls on him to help her sister, who has also been blinded. Together they discover that the Algonquin medicine man Misquamacus has come back to life to seek a final devastating revenge against the white man who massacred his people, and tried to eradicate their religions and their culture forever. Only Harry and Amelia know that Misquamacus, and his band of resurrected Native American shamans and terrifying Eye Killers from ancient Zuni legend, are responsible for the chaos - but the odds of beating Misquamacus are suicidal indeed.

"Descendant" by Graham Masterton
www.amazon.com

Horror veteran Masterton delivers one of his best efforts. During World War II, American James Falcon traveled across Europe, hunting vampires for the Allied forces. Now it's the late 1950s, and the cold war is hitting its stride. Falcon is called out of retirement and sent to London, where an old enemy has resurfaced. He quickly discovers that, to beat the bloodsucker, he must confront some frightening secrets from his own past. This is a hugely entertaining novel, at once completely loopy and entirely plausible (once you accept vampires, of course). Masterton's exploration of the nature of vampires (what makes them tick, so to speak) is engrossing and scary as hell, and his descriptions of the violent confrontations between good and evil are unsettlingly graphic. On the other hand, the love story, between Falcon and his partner (a beautiful dog handler), is touching and surprising. Putting down the book before you've finished is not an option.

“Hugely entertaining. Engrossing and scary as hell!” – Booklist
“Graham Masterton is the living inheritor to the realm of Edgar Allan Poe.” – San Francisco Chronicle
“One of the true masters for the horror genre.” – James Herbert
“Masterton remains a mesmerizing storyteller.” – Publishers Weekly
“Horror’s most consistent provider of chills.” – Masters of Terror

"Feelings of Fear" by Graham Masterton (short stories)
www.amazon.com

The secretary seeking a cosmopolitan lifestyle in Europe's most sophisticated city; the architect whose secret life is about to become all too public; the delighted beneficiary of a superb inheritance: all very different people trying to make the best of their ordinary lives. But all of them will turn out to have something in common when they are thrown in at the deep end in situations that will turn on its head everything they have ever taken for granted.
When drowning in a puddle becomes a real danger; when an imaginary friend becomes a terrifying threat; when the gift of a lifetime turns out to have come from a formidable -- and less than friendly -- source: only then will the cast of characters in this deeply chilling collection of stories really begin to understand what the feeling of fear really means.

Eric the Pie / Ерик Пая от Греъм Мастертън на български език.

За съжаление преводът не е добър, по-добре прочетете разказа в оригинал. Мастертън е качил доста неща за четене/сваляне на сайта си, в това число и "Eric the Pie".

Определено ми харесва. Преди няколко дни почнах в Читанката да чета "Маниту: Кошмар в Манхатън" и смея да твърдя, че не ме остави направо. Супер увлекателна история, в която има всичко. А преди всичко искам да отбележа, че мразя, да чета през Читанката, така като ми е супер неудобно (задоволявам се само с много кратки разкази). Но да се върна на самото произведение - определено в България губим много, така като не стига, че има само една издадена от поредицата за Маниту, ами и на всичкото отгоре в момента я няма нова в книжарниците. И "Бард" или който и да е, да вземат да се замислят за преиздаване, и за издаване останалите части от поредицата!

А за "Ерик Пая" нямам думи - някаква смесица от бруталия и извратения! Уникално разказче, в което с наистина малко думи, описва голям период! :))

Някой дали няма да се "изтърве" в България, да почнат да го издават?... Макар че не си падам по сплентърпънка, Греъм Мастертън заслужава по-голямо внимание според мен.

Plague of the Manitou (2015)

Virus expert Anna Grey is disturbed when a dying patient is wheeled past her lab vomiting fountains of blood and screaming like a banshee. To make matters worse, when she examines the man’s corpse, she could swear she hears him whisper: ‘Get it out of me.’ John Patrick Bridges is dead. He’s definitely dead. But if he’s dead – how is he talking?
Anna wonders if she’s going mad. But then a second man haemorrhages and dies; yet Anna hears him whisper, ‘Please help me.’
There is no such thing as demons, Anna tells herself. But cynical fortune-teller Harry Erskine knows otherwise and a series of extremely disturbing events are forcing him from his Miami home towards the bereaved Anna, who as yet has little idea of the evil she is facing...

Втората книга за Маниту е супер посредствена , изобщо не знам дали си заслужава да инвестирам повече време в поредицата .
