Slime by John Halkin

by John Halkin
1984 Hamyln

Killer jellyfish attack England.  The story focuses on an actor, the journalist he's having an affair with, and his estranged cheating wife as they're all affected by the jellyfish invasion.  They begin by attack those in the water offshore before starting to move inland, in rivers and ponds, before slowly creeping on land.

The references to water taps refer to a development of jellyfish babies ending up in the drinking water - this wasn't really developed in the book.  The end has some decent thrills during a rescue mission at a besieged hospital.

Not as sleazy as Squelch or Slither; this one had more of a disaster movie feel, albeit with faces getting melted off.
