A Novel of Sheer Terror:In 1936, in Pleasure View Kentucky, a team of construction workers showed up to begin ground work for a small and dismal building known as 'The Lakeside Testing Lab.' The location was an area of forest that festered a family of 'Hillbillies,' that would be 'The Hagger's.' On that momentous day, when the Lab folks met The Hagger's, a feud began that would go on...even in death.By 1980, The Lab had grown to become the monster known as 'XANORSE CHEMICALS INC.' In the summer of that year, six teenagers, in an attempt to bury a particularly grisly mishap they'd had, found themselves knee deep in an underground toxic waste pool. Sixteen-year-old Jimmy Hagger discovered the pool too.Ten years later, six young adults and one hillbilly started to...change. And the town of Pleasure View would be brutalized by the attacks of something hideously unnatural.

From the Author:

It's funny, when people come up to me and ask how long it took to write something like THE MELTING, my response is, "It took a year to write it, and eighteen years to edit," because I didn't know what I was doing.
Once I felt like I knew what I was doing, after a hundred other times, I did the last edit, and called it finished! And now, personally, I love the book.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1936, in Pleasure View Kentucky, a team of construction workers showed up with  dynamite, bow-saws, axes, and hatchets, to begin ground work for the building of a small and dismal structure known as 'The Lakeside Testing Lab.'The site location was in the forestry at the outskirts of town. Forestry that, somewhere in its heart, festered a family of 'Hillbillies.' In Pleasure View, that would be 'The Hagger's.'On that momentous day of April 12th 1936, when the Lakeside Testing Lab met with The Hagger's, a feud began that would go on...even in death.By 1980, The Lab had grown to become the monster known as 'XANORSE CHEMICALS INC.,' a huge, towering slab of cold gray concrete, reaching up from the cleared portion of forestry covering Hagger land.One afternoon in the summer of that year, six teenagers, in an attempt to hide and bury a particularly grisly mishap they'd had, found themselves knee deep in and surrounded by the rancid stench of the underground toxic waste pool Xanorse Chemicals used for disposal.In that same summer, sixteen-year-old Jimmy Hagger discovered the pool too.Ten years later - 1990, six young adults and one hillbilly started to...change.Power can be a beautiful thing at times. At other times it can be a bit scary. And sometimes it's just...plain...ugly.When Sarah Maples was attacked, by something hideously unnatural, something that appeared dead and rotted, with a stench to die for, the town of Pleasure View had no idea how badly it was about to become assaulted...brutalized.And only those who had experience with the toxic pool knew what the creature was capable of.
