Flesh, by Richard Laymon

(pb; 1987)


From the back cover:

"No one in town has ever seen anything like it before: a slimy, mobile tube of glistening yellow flesh with dull, staring eyes and an obscene, probing mouth.  But the real horror is not what it looks like, or even what it does to you when it invades your flesh - but what it makes you do to others. . ."


Review:

Solid, fun horror read, with plenty of cheesy sex, grue and violence.  While Laymon didn't provide a lot of information about the strange yellow creature's past, he provided enough for me to enjoy Flesh as a short, sharp and sometimes nasty genre work.

Worth checking out, this.
