Anthology novel C.H.U.D. Lives! brings back the cannibalistic humanoids


Crystal Lake Publishing is set to release an anthology novel called C.H.U.D. LIVES!, which will be packed with new stories about the cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers that were introduced in the 1984 cult classic sci-fi horror film C.H.U.D. (creatures that didn't return in the 1989 sequel C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD).

Compiled by Eric S. Brown and dedicated to the memory of C.H.U.D. producer Andrew Bonime, the tribute anthology finally brings back, after thirty-four years, those 

monsters living in the sewers below New York. The stories in this anthology expand the world created by the film and add depth to the C.H.U.D. universe like never before. From stories of apocalyptic horror and all out monster action, to tales of underground parties interrupted by uninvited guests and evening strolls that end in death, this anthology will leave you both smiling and breathless.

Relive the fear as these original stories take you beyond the movie to events that occurred before, during, and after the scenes we remember so well.

“Dog Walker” by Robert E Waters

“The Dwellers” by Nick Cato

“The City Will Eat You Alive” by Ryan C. Thomas
