OF THE BEAST
IMAGE OF THE BEAST is award-winning author Philip José Farmers epic of SF-porn, comprising The Image Of The Beast An Exorcism, Ritual One, and Blown An Exorcism, Ritual Two.
Private dick Herald Childe is sent a snuff movie of his partner being hideously murdered. His pursuit of the killers leads him into a waking nightmare of sexual brutality and supernatural bestiality, as he becomes entangled with sex-starved she-ghosts, libidinous snake-women, a filthy human sow, and a she-creature who gives birth to the limbless, ectoplasmic simulacrum of satanic child-killer Gilles de Rais.
In this mind-blowing SF classic, Philip José Farmer conjures up a universe of unrelenting sexual degradation and horror populated by erogenous vampires, priapic werewolves and other polymorphic creatures from the darkest recesses of the imagination.
This new edition includes a foreword by Theodore Sturgeon, and features the original 1970s cover art by award-winning illustrator Jim Burns.
