After having this one in my to read pile for a while now I finally took the plunge and read the whole sucker in one sitting. This was the first collection of "rare" Ed Lee novella's that Deadite put out and by far this was the sickest ride through the highways of literature I have taken, well since the last Lee book I read and mind you most of Lee's small press stuff is of the same calibre as this collection, which I have been gobbling up like sick over sweet icing. The first novella in the collection is Ever Nat, original published in a small run chapbook by bloodletting in 2003. This is the Lee I love! Wild red neck exploitation at its finest. This one is full to the brim with sexual deviance, humor, shock, perversion and I find myself still chanting "Ever Nat" over and over again and giggle like a little schoolgirl. The second is a short story original published in the out of print collection, The Ushers, "The Salt Diviner.' This one is up there with my favorite Lee stories. A sort of "Wandering Jew" cursed to walk the earth till the end of time, used by a down in his luck fellow to acquire wealth. Once again, loads of perversion and humor. But, with Lee even though it treads territory most authors would shy from, he not only does it with style, but the man can write. Who knew pornography could be so well written. The last story/novella comes from another long out of print collection, Splatterpunks, written with John Pelan, the almost noxious, "Refrigerator Full of Sperm." Now this one will test the boundaries of your good taste, as with all the Micah Haye stories I have read, will lead the reader into some of the most perverse possibilities, that may cause some if not most people to question Mr. Lee's mental stability. I love you for that Lee! So really these kinds of books are hard to review, you will either love this stuff or hate it. But if you have a place in your heart for Troma movies, Peter Jackson's Bad Taste, grindhouse movies and Penthouse letters, you'll love Lee and pretty much everything he has written. Do yourself a favor, throw out your Stephen King and Dean Knootz books and fill your shelves with Lee!!
