Gillian Bellaver's family is one of the wealthiest in the world. Robin Sandza's father Peter is a government assassin. The two teenagers seem to have nothing in common. Yet they are spiritual twins, possessing a horrifying psychic energy that threatens humanity. While dangerous and fanatical men vie for the secrets of their awesome power, Peter Sandza, using all the ruthless skills of his trade, makes a final desperate effort to save them. Exploring with extraordinary skill the myths and legends deeply rooted in the subconscious mind, this novel builds, scene by shocking scene, to a night of chilling horror that surpasses anything you've ever experienced . . . First published in 1976 and made into a successful movie written by the author and directed by Brian De Palma in 1978, The Fury is one of the all-time classics of the horror genre.


"Few writers have Mr. Farris's talent for masterfully devious plotting, the shatteringly effective use of violence, in-depth characterization and scenes of gibbering horror guaranteed to turn one's blood to gelatin." —New York Times

"Farris has a genius for creating compelling suspense." —Peter Benchley, author of Jaws

"A horrifying, terrifying chiller." —Publishers Weekly

"Farris has a remarkable ability to jab his literary ice pick into the bone marrow. With uncanny reality he depicts raw evil, partiularly the sort which masquerades as innocence. It is genuine terror and Farris provides it with an attribute lacking in the work of the most contemporary storytellers: style." —Brian Garfield, author of Death Wish

"And seeing the book as prelude to today's masters of the paranormal crime mystery (like John Connolly) is irresistible."—Kingdom Books, Mysteries

"John Farris' telekinetic horror novel The Fury has remained a beloved entry to the psychic powers sub-genre of the horror literary world."—The Daily Dead

"It remains a haunting story about deceit, betrayal and personal corruption, and about the different paths that one can take in life when in the possession of immense power"—Wicked Horror
