The Demons Within by Vincent Berg

A Demonic Issues Story (1)
Phil Walker was a normal man-until demons invaded his mind. Eager to understand his visions, he seeks answers, only to face hostility from the police. Does it matter if he's technically insane, if he cures hundreds? As Phil battles his inner demons, he wrestles with where they originated and how they impact him and his health. However, the question remains: are his unusual skills an otherworldly phenomenon, the results of disease, or a gift from above?
