" ... a cleverly executed [blend] of science fiction, suspense and horror. ... a certified dark journey into madness." - David Gammon, HORROR NEWS

"Stadler - an experimental physicist by trade - effectively uses his background working in government and defense labs in painting vivid, appropriately clinical looks at the very base concept of torture. He spins it, however, into a horrifying tale of supernatural vengeance, one wrought with complex questions of faith, spirituality, and the after-life." - Chris Hallock, CHIZINE

"Exoskeleton utilizes several science fiction and horror tropes: the medical experiment gone horribly wrong, the malevolent secret government organization that will stop at nothing to achieve its aims, vengeful spirits against which the fleshbound have no defense, [still] Stadler never lets the story devolve into cliche, but instead uses these tropes with originality and energy." - Tracie McBride, EXQUISITE CORPSE


A convicted felon is given a choice following his sentencing ... Serve a twenty five year conventional prison sentence ... Or spend 365 days in a new, experimental corrections program. He opts for the experimental program ... Only to realize he has made a horrible mistake. A dark tale of science spun dangerously out of control, Exoskeleton will leave even the most jaded of readers quaking in their boots.
