Variant Squad Captain Joe Borland returns in PAINKILLER, a gut-wrenching novella of grisly horror. Dreams and reality collide in the shadow of the Variant Effect
The Variant Effect
The old furrier building in a rundown part of Metro was the perfect place to find a body, and Joe Borland knew they wouldn’t have dragged him out of retirement to see it if something hadn’t eaten its skin. It’s been twenty years since Borland battled the Variant Effect, and twenty since he let his partner get skinned alive. Now both of them are ordered back into action to meet the new threat.
