If Michael Crichton's medical thriller novels made you nervous, this collection of physician-related stories will outright scare the wadding right out of you! You'll have to take a break and hide from the words from story to story, but they will drag you back for another frightening round---the collection is just that good!


From back cover:
Wilson has collected fourteen short stories that will make your next meeting with a physician much less comforting. There are murdr mysteries, dark tales of cerebral and physical terror, and despair-based commentaries on the future all served up by some riveting writers. [Detroit Free Press]

From alternative medicine to murder, F.Paul Wilson's Diagnosis: Terminal reveals terrors surgical, psychological, and institutional. In stark, operating-room light these fourteen writers take scalpel and pen to the body and soul of humanity as it lies stretched out on the stainless-steel page. Rendered in laser-sharp detail, these incisive narrative reveal our needs, our hurts, our desires, and our fears.

This unsettling anthology submerges us in the near-witchcraft methods of a nineteenth abortionist and awes us with a post-apocalypse future where autistic mutants telepathically remove pain. But more than anything, it gives us frightening real glimpses of ourselves and a nightmarish medical future that may be here in five minutes--if it's not already.

Featuring stories by F. Paul Wilson, Bill Pronzini, Chet Williamson, Matthew Costello, Billie Sue Mosiman, Steve Spruill, Richard Lee Byers, Thomas F. Monteleone, Tina L.Jens, Ridley Pearson, Jack Nimersheim, Brunch H. Rogers, Ed Gorman, and Karl Edward Wagner.
