Publisher's Summary

Chaos reigns supreme. Social and economic upheaval, rampant terrorism, and nuclear annihilation have turned the earth into a vast wasteland. And, in Texas, the gates of Hell have been cracked open, unleashing its evil and fury upon the undeserving. The inhabitants of Ruin Town find themselves unwilling pawns, trapped between warring forces, desperately attempting to survive. Even when the bombing and gunfire cease, they can find no refuge, no relief, for afterwards, Satan himself descends mercilessly upon them… in the form of General Payne and his band of sadistic mercenaries. It is then that the suffering truly begins.
Murder, rape, racial intolerance, mutilation… all are heaped upon those who dwell in Ruin Town, if only to feed the General’s insatiable lust for power and sadistic pleasure. Afterward, the broken and dying seek out the only one who can deliver them from the horror that their world has become. The one who can miraculously meld flesh to flesh, and bone to bone. He is the healer supreme, the medico grande… the Flesh-Welder.

Short but sweet, Great fun and interesting premise

What did you love best about Flesh Welder?

It did in a shirt story what a lot of books fail to do in a full length, It developed a tragic and scary world that was wholly believable. Would love to see the story continue beyond this short. Could easily be a series about the Dr.


What did you like best about this story?

the wealth of detail in such a brief story.


What about Wayne June’s performance did you like?

i enjoyed the voices and the depth he brought to the characters.

Well executed short perfect for the commute

I've had this short on my wish list for a couple of years. It looked intriguing, but I put it off. After listening to it I bought the other two Ronald Kelly compilations of short stories offered.

I bought these straight up, didn't use a credit, and I think that is what had me hold them in my wish list for so long. It's hard to burn a credit on a 5 buck book... Well worth the cash. I was able to listen to this short on the way into work and finished it just about the time I parked the car, though I sat for a few minutes to finish it.

At the end of the book I wanted to know more about the Doctor, his side kick nurse, and the little boy with the wagon full of people parts which is why I give it only 4 stars for story. I think it could have been a bit longer... yeah I know it was a short story, I just wanted more.

Good Stuff Mr. Kelly!
