Fast forward to the far-flung future of 2017. While perusing "Creature Feature" books on Amazon, this title came up. "Could it be?" I wondered. Upon further research, imagine my joy at rediscovering this author. In fact, it seems he has quite a cult following. I never knew that he had written so many sequels to that first book I read way back when. I still love old B-movies (one of my all-time favorites is Roger Corman's "Attack of the Crab Monsters", BTW) so I promptly ordered this one, which purported to be a continuation of the story I read so many years ago.
I enjoyed this read far more than I thought I would. It tells what it wants to tell without overstaying its welcome. Mr. Smith's prose is a tad on the spare side, but in a good way. The plot itself is pretty straight forward; if you don't like monster movies, you probably won't like this book. But, it moves along at a brisk but never hectic pace, peopled with believable and sympathetic characters that are dwelt on just enough to give them depth but without ever turning into digression. Now, I understand that some look down their noses at this author because of his choice of subject matter or his simple approach to his craft. I've read many, many horror paperbacks by many authors whose publications are invariably plastered with praise by a myriad of prostitu-er, critics. In practically every case, they try to "redefine" the genre or infuse it with something that editors demand as being "original" and "new". In almost every case was I disappointed, and the expectation of "something different" being stifled made the books seem worse than they were, and the attempt on the authors' part to make their stories "meaningful" just made them rather trite as well as slow. I think that a lot of writers could find inspiration from this guy here; write the sort of thing you like to read.

This is, I think, the 5th in the Crabs series. I had these in paperback when they first came out; I'm sure this used to be called Night Of The Crabs 2: Crab's Moon. However, now it seems to be shortened to Crab's Moon.
Once again the giant crabs wreak havoc as they emerge from the sea on full moon nights and start slaughtering nearby towns and military installations.
Full of the usual gory horror, sex and easy-to-read uncomplicated plots you can expect from Guy N Smith this book is a worthy addition to the Crabs series.
It finished with a bit of an anti-climax but was, nonetheless, an enjoyable read.
Note on the Kindle version: No proplems at all.
Can finish it in quicker time than the suggested 2 hours and 30 minutes
Not as good when compared with the previous ones. Felt rushed and the ending is abrupt.
