About 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.

This book is positively amazing with creepy, macabre disturbia at its' best. Lee pulls no stops on this thrilling, practically suicidal ride that will leave you craving more.

Edward Lee's take on horror is not for mainstream horror fans. Like the late Richard Laymon, his work will sometimes shock and disgust those who don't have an eye for this more potent blend of horror. As far as I'm concerned City Infernal is one of the best horror novels of recent years. Without giving too much of the plot away, the book centers around hell as a city. The mythology of the hell Edward Lee presents here is very unique and extremely interesting. As we tour through the streets of hell, we learn everything about life down in the underworld. Including politics, terrorism, drugs, sex, STDs, money, mythos, law enforcement, and even some metaphysical stuff thrown in that is rich and layered. There's is a kind of beautifully disorienting feel to Lee's writing that simultaneously scares and intrigues and with City Infernal Lee pulls out all the stops. Followed by a sequel.

When I first saw the cover I knew that I was going to like it. And I was right, form the time I took it home till about 4 hours later I was glued. It had only took that day for me to finish the book. I think that if you like the scary kind of books, you would really enjoy this one. Edward lee puts you in the book with the charaters.

Lee's new vision of hell as a huge metropolis is very creative--and believable. Though I would've liked a bit more character development on Cassie and her new friends, the City itself is the central and main figure of this story. It makes you hungry for the sequel. Highly recommended!

This isn't Dante's Inferno! Edward Lee hits hard with explicit descriptions of the monsters and sights and scenes in Hell. The story is about twin sisters--Cassie enters Hell to find Lissa, who committed suicide. Cassie is befriended by 3 other punky suicide victims, who become her tour guides through the gross and gory city. I really enjoyed Lee's imaginative monsters and his writing is a quick, easy read.

Just discovered Ol' Ed, and I'm hooked. Love his style of not shying from the scenes most writers shy away from. No fade to black or scene switches when the blood starts gushing gallons. Looking forward to reading more of his works. A writer that's fully embraced Lovecraft with gusto.

Must read! I'm reading it for the 3rd time! Such detail and can almost picture everything. The 2nd book is just as good. It's a MUST READ, if you like this kind of stuff that is...I LOVE IT!!!

I have enjoyed all of the infernal books. They are origional, thrilling, and no holds barred writing. I thought Clive Barker wasn't afraid to write what he wanted! Well Edward Lee seems to take that even a step further. It will not appeal to everyone, but if you are not afraid of the DARK, you will love these books. I only wish I could find more!

I've read alot of Edward Lee and would have to say that this book was one of the best. If you've read this book and haven't read Infernal Angel...FIND IT, READ IT!!!!! The story continues in Infernal Angel, letting you know what role Cassie plays in all of this, well, Hell!! This would be a visual treat as a movie. Gory and filled with chaos. I Loved, loved, loved this book!!!!

I seen this book at a local bookstore and the premise caught my interest. I said to myself why not and bought it. I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly shocked. It is one of the better horror novels I have read. It is full of action and gore but, it has more than just that. Cassie the books main character is well developed, and you really become attached to her as the book goes along. It also gives most people's view of Hell a modern upgrade. It is a booming metropolis with skyscrapers, parks, nightclubs, apartments buildings etc. It is a well thought out Novel. This is the first Edward Lee book I have read but it wont be the last.
