If you're looking for an excellent horror book to read, go no farther than the one and only Edward Lee for it. I have read many of his books and have always been impressed by the depths of his writing abilities. No other writer describes so eloquently the raw horrors of this world. This book has everything to offer from incest, necrophilia, rape, unspeakable torture and plain old mayhem. It is definitely not for the squeamish. Besides all of the extreme horror in it, there is always an underlying truth to the realities of the human condition. Jack Ketchum and Stephen King are the only other authors who obtain the ability to portray the human condition so well, with all of its tragedies and heroism. Strongly recommended for lovers of horror or anyone who is tired of the same formulaic pulp novels cluttering too many bookshelves these days. Enter Lee's world at your own risk.......you will never be the same on the other side.

It is great news to see The Bighead in print, again. This novel, described once before as 'The grossest book you'll ever read' is much, much more than that. I don't think anyone could just write a gross-out novel unless they had the myriad talents of Ed Lee. The novel is also very humorous, in parts, and the ending is excellent; very well constructed. This is a book that is written by a master of the horror genre. The Bighead isn't, of course, the only monster in the book. The redneck couple, Balls and Dicky, are a hoot as well. Another feature of the novel is Lee's ability to keep three dialects going throughout, and even adding a fourth in one chapter. In conclusion: a real pleasure to read, and glad to see the typos corrected from the first edition. Lee's other extreme fiction includes Goon, Header and his forthcoming Horncranker. But he has also written some conventional fiction, and his new The Stickmen is sort of an 'X-files' with an ending!
