There is an ancient evil. This evil has been asleep for so long that it is almost forgotten. Almost... Professor Davis Nickels knows all about the "otherworld." A world that is full of unimaginable horror. But now that ancient evil has awoken, and it threatens everything.

The Father of Flesh by Nicholas Paschall is the epitome of a good horror story. Mr Paschall has created a world that is frightening and yet strangely fascinating.

I thought David Nickels was very well portrayed. Think Indiana

Really creepy horror were professor Davis Nickels and two of his helpers follow a case all the way to China to investigate a gruesome horror taking over the village and everything in its path called the father of flesh.

“ones on the left. Its skin was a pulsating pink that seemed swollen with fluid, straining against its hide as if it were about to burst. It had eight tentacles instead of arms, three sprouting from one side, five from the other, each ending in a four-fingered hand. Veins throbbed visibly as the creature clambered out of the well, leaving behind a trail of viscous fluid that shined a brilliant fuchsia and brown. Most horrifying of all was its face. The head had twisted until it was completely upside down, flesh bubbling up to replace the neck and lower jaw. An open maw dominated the upper torso; it didn’t seem to be able to close. Saliva dribbled from the lipless mouth in great rivulets over the face; the eyes looked about wildly before they’d focused on Kwan.
