Trade paperback format.  Highly recommended!  A great winter read (or equally enjoyable if you need a good chill in the summer).

In 1938, acclaimed science fiction author John W. Campbell published the novella Who Goes There?, about a team of scientists in Antarctica who discover and are terrorized by a monstrous, shape-shifting alien entity. The story would  later be adapted into John Carpenter's iconic movie The Thing (following an earlier film adaptation in 1951). The published novella was actually an abridged version of Campbell's original story, called Frozen Hell, which had to be shortened for publication. The Frozen Hell manuscript remained unknown and unpublished for decades, and it was only recently rediscovered.

Frozen Hell restores and expands the Thing story dramatically, giving vital backstory and context to an already incredible tale. We are pleased and honored to offer Frozen Hell to you now, as Campbell intended it. Be among the first people to ever read this completed version of the story!

Frozen Hell includes an introduction by Robert Silverberg, a multiple Hugo and Nebula Award winning author, Grand Master of Science Fiction, and member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.

Frozen Hell features a new cover and interior art by award-winning artist Bob Eggleton. Eggleton is a multiple Hugo Award-winning sci-fi, fantasy, and horror artist. He has illustrated countless iconic book covers, and has worked on cards for Magic: The Gathering. Eggleton has also done concept work for films such as Jimmy Neutron and The Ant Bully, and was a  creative consultant for the 1998 film Godzilla.

Frozen Hell includes a preface written by Alec Nevala-Lee, who rediscovered the Frozen Hell manuscript while doing research for his upcoming book Astounding: John W. Campbell, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, and the Golden Age of Science Fiction (Dey Street Books).
