KIRKUS REVIEW

Burgeoning with vultures, snakes, bats, reptiles and other horrendous excrescences of the black world, this little tale of mad, wicked Prof. Zoocarnivora and of the good Father Theobald, miracle worker and spiritual healer, and of two young, ecstatic lovers who fall into the professor's clutches. How the professor goes on a blood bath binge, murders two women who had spurned him, and almost slow tortures to death our good Father and the lovers -- such is the story. Maybe Bela Lugosi who urged the author on to commit this book could not sleep until he finished it, this reader could barely keep awake. Pass it up. You'll not regret it.
