Présentation de l'éditeur

In a crumbling underground city on a dying planet, young Annelyn has lived a life of privilege. When he is humiliated at the hands of the crafty groun hunter they call the Meatbringer, he and his high-born friends plot revenge. But Annelyn's plan goes desperately awry, leading him deep into the city's ruins--and to the ugly truth about his forebears' reverence for the mythic White Worm.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Creepy, baroque and thought-provoking 3 septembre 2010
Par Robert Kruger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is one of my favorite George R. R. Martin stories, and that's high praise. The ubiquitous references to worms made me think of Poe's "The Conqueror Worm," and like that poem, this story is darkly fascinating. I asked the author about what influenced it, and he said that he supposed Lovecraft did somewhat. I'm sure Lovecraft would have been honored by the acknowledgement. The story is set in a far-distant era when the human race and the solar system itself have changed dramatically, but the science-fictional background is layered into the action and implied rather than explicit, so this reads more like high fantasy with strong horror overtones.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Likely his best short story 3 novembre 2010

A short story with actually a bit of worldbuilding. The plot moves pretty quick, there's some good suspense, and overall the tale is hard to put down. Definitely worth the $2 and the time. Pretty memorable read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The perfect short story. 1 mars 2011
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

I bought this having read only a couple of his larger books so, I was expecting this to be 800+ pages or so. I was surprised to find it so short but was quickly engrossed in the story. It has a good face past and a dark and sinister feel. I am a bit of a claustrophobic so reading this at 2 in the morning with only a tiny reading lamp made it seem all the more scary. All in all a great and masterfully written book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A short, early fantasy/adventure by G.R.R. Martin 29 mai 2011
Par R. Nicholson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"In the House of the Worms" is a fantasy/adventure novella by author George R.R. Martin. This is a Kindle only e-edition and is a 146 Kb download.

I believe, but stand to be corrected, that this book was written in 1975 and first published in 1976; this early effort stands as proof positive of Martin's potential for storytelling.

*THEME SPOILER* (no specific details given)

This tale is of a quest of revenge; a quest that starts out with our three protagonists delving deep into the tunnels beneath their land to avenge a perceived insult. However, circumstances change and their false bravado rapidly turns into tale of terror, with survival becoming the ultimate objective.

*END SPOILER*

I enjoyed this short work; a creepy, dark claustrophobic dungeon stomp. There were many literal and figurative twist and turns within the confines of these subterranean caverns and crawl spaces. And as with so many of Martin's subsequent novels, no one appears sacrosanct...unexpected injuries and deaths can and do occur out of the blue.

My only concern (and the loss of 1 Star) was the middle section that seemed to bog down when it became somewhat repetitious.

Conclusion:
A short novella featuring, I believe, one of Martin's earlier works. It was obvious, looking back, just what this author was capable of, as evidenced in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" series years later. 4 Stars

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read, want more 3 octobre 2011
Par Justin Maloney - Publié sur Amazon.com

A wonderful, wonderful story. My only complaint is that you are left wanting to know so much more about the dark world in which it all takes place. Having said that, wanting more is a good thing and this is well worth the read!
