Stop...Did you hear that? Yes that was the sound of Lovecraft not only rolling in his grave, but jumping up and running in terror. The terror that is Edward Lee!! This is the third of many of Lee's tributes to Lovecraft that I have had the pleasure of reading and cringing from. The Innswich Horror stayed in the territory of typical Lovecraft fare. Trolley No. 1850 took Lovecraft into explicit areas and this vile tome has pushed the legacy of Lovecraft into straight out pornographic regions that Lee is infamous for. A Loosely based sequel to Haunter of the Dark, sees Hazel, her friends Sonia and Frank set out to understand the mysterious box and stone found in Lovecraft's original story. Though along the way Hazel and her many sexual paraphilia's will entertain the legions of perverted Lee fans. Perhaps I need some mental guidance from a trained practitioner; perhaps Lee does even more, but without a doubt the man's writing talent allow his readers to turn pages faster then a twelve year old discovering one of dad's mags hidden in a sock drawer. Indeed who knew that smut horror could be written so well?! Once again I lucked out that Deadite is releasing these higher priced books in affordable paperbacks. If you are an old time Lee fan you probably already delved into this awe inspiring mix of perversion and Lovecraftian lore. New readers of Lee, do you think you can handle it? Go on give it a try. But beware you might not want to read this one on public transit.

I've read many an Edward Lee book and this is one I had to walk away from a few times to re-compose myself. Some parts were just too grossly detailed that I actually gagged..... He does not fail to paint some fairly grim scenes with his words as usual. I love Edward Lee but this goes a bit too far for my poor little mind to handle... Not recommended for the faint hearted at all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have read EVERYTHING by Edward Lee and this is the ONLY book I could not bring myself to finish. I know there is probably a pretty decent story with all the strange things that happen, but I was unable to handle the overly disgusting, vile, revolting atrocities at every page turn. I generally read during my lunch break at work, but found that due to the descriptive, violent and perverse rape scenes I was gagging at every bite and thus was unable to finish reading. I am truly disappointed that this book had none of the ingenuity of his earlier books like the "Infernal" series. I felt dirty after reading this and if this is the direction Mr. Lee is taking his writing, I don't see myself reading any more of his work. I'm just disgusted.Was this review helpful?

I have been reading Edward Lee for little over a year now--I am hooked! Mr. Lee is a great writer who blends erotica and horror like no other. He is able to give you the naughty bits nestled between bone and gristle and finish up with a big helping of warm gore! I loved this book--but what I loved even more is that he captured the "atmosphere" of H.P. Lovecraft, and did it in a convincing manner. So, if you are bored with writers who call themselves "horror," then I welcome you to the dark-side my friend, and experience what true "horror" really is...( maniacal laughter!)
