Day 3 of 31 Authors of Halloween – Dan Simmons

Dan Simmons is an author of science fiction, horror and fantasy. Many of his works have been turned into a movie or a mini-series such as The Terror.

Synopsis for The Terror

The men on board the HMS Terror have every expectation of finding the Northwest Passage. But what they don’t expect is a monstrous predator lurking behind the Arctic ice. When the expedition’s leader, Sir John Franklin, meets a horrifying end, Captain Francis Crozier takes command, leading his surviving crewmen on a last desperate attempt to flee south across the ice.

But another winter is rapidly approaching, and with it, scurvy and starvation. Crozier and his men may find that there is no escaping the terror stalking them southward. And with the crushing cold and the fear of almost certain death at their backs, the most horrifying monster among them may be each other.

The Terror was turned into a mini-series that was made for the AMC channel in 2018, and has received great reviews. Unfortunately, for me, I hardly ever watch TV, so I never got a chance to watch it. But, I have heard that many of my coworkers and friends loved the show.
