Overview

THE RAILROAD…AND THE HOUSE

No train has run on this railroad since the end of the Civil War - a railroad built by a servitor to perfect evil - and its rusted tracks run right behind the house. Justin Collier expects his respite in Gast, Tennessee, to be relaxing if not a bit dull, but he will find out soon enough that those same train tracks once led to a place worse than Hell.

WELCOME TO THE GAST HOUSE

A historical bed and breakfast or a monument to the obscene? Collier doesn’t need to know the building’s rich history: women raped to death for sport, slaves beheaded and threshed into the soil, and pregnant teenagers buried alive. Who or what could mitigate such horrors over 150 years ago? And what is the atrocious connection between the old railroad and the house? Each room hides a new, revolting secret. At night, he can smell the mansion’s odors and hear its appalling whispers. Little girls giggle where there are no little girls, and out back, when Collier listens closely, he can hear the train’s whistle and see the barely human things chained up in its clattering prison cars. Little does he know, the mansion and the railroad aren’t haunted by ghosts but an unspeakable carnality and a horror as palpable as excited human flesh.

WELCOME TO A PLACE WORSE THAN HELL…

Meet the Author

Edward Lee is the author of almost fifty novels and numerous short stories and novellas (or is it novellae? Hmm.) Several of his properties have been optioned for film, while Header was released on DVD in 2009; also, he has been published in Germany, England, Romania, Greece, and Austria. Recent releases include Bullet Through Your Face and Brain Cheese Buffet (story collections), Header 2, and the hardcore Lovecraftian books The Innswich Horror, Trolley No. 1852, Pages Torn From A Travel Journal, Going Monstering, and Haunter of the Threshold. One of Lee’s creative ambitions is to one day write an effective M.R. James pastiche.

Having read some of the authors books before,kind of knew what to expect. He didn't disappoint. Pretty of sex and some icky parts. Has a very nice and somewhat funny ending. You really have to route for the main character.

I loved this book and highly recommend it. Classic Edward Lee giving us his spin on a haunted house. Well written and enthralling, with his trademark mixture of horror, erotica and stomach churning gore!
