Creeping In Reptile Flesh

Creeping in Reptile Flesh
by Robert Hood

“Creeping in Reptile Flesh brings together some of the best from his twistedly evil mind…There are many types of horror here to suit many tastes and all of them will please the discerning reader who enjoys good tales told well.” — Keith Stevenson, Aurealis #43

A detective, hired by one politician to dig up dirt on another, discovers he knows much more than he suspects…

A seemingly normal pool of water becomes a doorway for monstrous things, horrible things, hungry for human flesh…

A doctor and his “patient” discover that the location of the soul isn’t in the brain, but in the heart…

This collection by Robert Hood, Australia’s master of the macabre, offers 15 short stories to tantalyze your mind and tempt your appetite. From rotting food to rotting corpses, this collection is vividly thought out madness, with Hood’s mastermind at its core. Leave your lights on for this one — all of them.

“The central theme for Hood is menacing decay, both bodily an environmental, and this focus showcases his ability to move from old-fashioned confessional-style horror, complete with tentacled tropes, to rather wonderful absurdism.” — Talie Helene, Black: Australian Dark Culture
