HE BEGINS OPTIMISTICALLY
Already by page 7 we have had a self-throat-cutting incident in broad daylight and then this on page 10
The large milk-laden breasts wobbled erotically.
You know you could scour Proust and Henry James for a sentence like that. And you wouldn't find one. Go Flesh Gothic!
EXPERIENCE TEACHES ANOTHER HARD LESSON
Holy sex muffins, what was I thinking? Who recommended this? I may have to hunt them down like a dog.
It stood tall, lank but globose in the hell-rendered fat that made up its atrocious physique. It had no face but it looked right at them. The rimmed seam for a mouth gaped, showing a great flap of tongue. Between its legs hung large, abominable genitals.
'One of the buried Adiposians!' Karen shrieked. 'It was resurrected when the Rive opened, and it'll remain alive until the charge of the house is totally dead!'
A SORRY CONCLUSION TO AN ILL-ADVISED EXPERIMENT
So modern horror is two parts microwaved HP Lovecraft imagery stirred lightly with dialogue from 1950s B movies and lovingly sauteed with several stained copies of Hustler and the lesser-known Abominable Genitals Monthly.

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.
