A convicted felon is given a choice following his sentencing… Serve a twenty-five year conventional prison term, or spend 365 days in a new, experimental corrections program… He opts for the latter, only to realize he has made a horrible mistake.
A dark tale of science spun dangerously out of control, EXOSKELETON will leave even the most jaded of readers quaking in their boots.
” … a cleverly executed [blend] of science fiction, suspense and horror. … a certified dark journey into madness.” – David Gammon, HORROR NEWS
“Stadler – an experimental physicist by trade – effectively uses his background working in government and defense labs in painting vivid, appropriately clinical looks at the very base concept of torture. He spins it, however, into a horrifying tale of supernatural vengeance, one wrought with complex questions of faith, spirituality, and the after-life.”- Chris Hallock, CHIZINE
“Exoskeleton utilizes several science fiction and horror tropes: the medical experiment gone horribly wrong, the malevolent secret government organization that will stop at nothing to achieve its aims, vengeful spirits against which the fleshbound have no defense, [still] Stadler never lets the story devolve into cliche, but instead uses these tropes with originality and energy.” – Tracie McBride, EXQUISITE CORPSE
