Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A kind of novel-in-stories that Lash's broad and punny humor and Archie-meets-Tales from the Crypt art keeps consistently light and frothy, a little like whipped slime perhaps. Ludicrous fun in the key of the old Addams Family TV show."
--Ray Olson, Booklist

"This book is amusing and clever ... These level-headed and calm lawyers play straight men to a parade of hapless monsters and other supernatural types as they are guided through their often pathetic legal complaints. The collected stories reinforce each other and further flesh out this off-kilter world."
-- Publisher's Weekly
