Read full description of the books:
I've read and enjoyed (if that's the right word for his signature blend of gore, guts and perversions) many books by Lee, so I was very excited to find this one at the library. The more I read it, the more the excitement faded. Maybe it wasn't Lee, it was just the nature of this collaboration, but this just didn't work together, the seems and stitches were all too obvious for this literary (word is being used liberally) frankenstein monster. The stark juxtaposition of sort of dreamy lyrical get out your dictionary out prose with the grossest of gore and sex that I have ever read by Lee just didn't gel. This book was a sort of odd exercise that just didn't work, but what mainly got it such low rating from me was the disgusting factor. I'm not a prude and I've been reading Lee and other horror writers prone to cringe inducing imagery for many years and this book had quite possibly the most disgusting scenes I've ever subjected myself to as a genre fan. And...for seemingly no particular reason (such as to advance the plot, etc.), they seem to just occur to shock without the strength of plot or likable characters to balance it. Disappointing read.

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the GoodReads database with this name.
Edward Lee is an American novelist specializing in the field of horror, and has authored 40 books, more than half of which have been published by mass-market New York paperback companies such as Leisure/Dorchester, Berkley, and Zebra/Kensington. He is a Bram Stoker award nominee for his story "Mr. Torso," and his short stories have appeared in over a dozen mass-market anthologies, including THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES OF 2000, Pocket's HOT BLOOD series, and the award-wining 999. Several of his novels have sold translation rights to Germany, Greece, and Romania. He also publishes quite actively in the small-press/limited-edition hardcover market; many of his books in this category have become collector's items. While a number of Lee's projects have been optioned for film, only one has been made, HEADER, which was released on DVD to mixed reviews in June, 2009, by Synapse Films.
Lee is particularly known for over-the-top occult concepts and an accelerated treatment of erotic and/or morbid sexual imagery and visceral violence. He was born on May 25, 1957 in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Bowie, Maryland. In the late-70s he served in the U.S. Army's 1st Armored Division, in Erlangen, West Germany, then, for a short time, was a municipal police officer in Cottage City, Maryland. Lee also attended the University of Maryland as an English major but quit in his last semester to pursue his dream of being a horror novelist. For over 15 years, he worked as the night manager for a security company in Annapolis, Maryland, while writing in his spare time. In 1997, however, he became a full-time writer, first spending several years in Seattle and then moving to St. Pete Beach, Florida, where he currently resides.
Of note, the author cites as his strongest influence horror legend H. P. Lovecraft; in 2007, Lee embarked on what he calls his "Lovecraft kick" and wrote a spate of novels and novellas which tribute Lovecraft and his famous Cthulhu Mythos. Among these projects are THE INNSWICH HORROR, "Trolley No. 1852," HAUNTER OF THE THRESHOLD, GOING MONSTERING, "Pages Torn From A Travel Journal," and "You Are My Everything." Lee promises more Lovecraftian work on the horizon.
