Slither - Edward Lee
Slither - Edward Lee

The island of Pritchards Key is home to plenty of wildlife including a new strain of worm as well as several groups of people who are all on the island for different reasons. The scientists, Nora and Loren, are there to find a specific worm for the National Geographic to photograph, there are redneck brothers who are on the island to harvest their pot plants and military personnel who are conducting deadly experiments.
As the worms begin infecting people on the island, all hell breaks loose as each group becomes desperate to find a way off the island to safety. Nora and Loren try to find out more about this new strain as well as why the military are running surveillance on them. What they find out could spell doom for civilisation.
This was a great 'B' movie type read that was a lot more subdued in content that some of Lee's other work such as his backwoods horror series. There is still plenty of cringe worthy scenes full of disgusting gore and sex but they don't even begin to touch on the depravity of say, Bighead. The only thing that slightly spoiled the story was the overload of science talk about worms which got a little boring to be honest. The ending was nicely done with a nice twist.
The characters were fairly well done, the good guys were realistic and flawed enough to be believable, the bad guys were pretty despicable and it was easy to cheer when things went pear shaped for them.
Great fun and a slightly tamer Lee read for the uninitiated.

You can't take this type of fiction seriously as Mr Lee has his tongue planted firmly in his cheek telling this tale of rednecks seeking revenge on the mafia.
He also manages to introduce some very imaginative ways for folks to die and skitters well past the line of what is morally acceptable in story telling, be warned, sick, twisted and a lot of fun.

Sleep Disorder - Jack Ketchum & Edward Lee
Sleep Disorder - Edward Lee,Jack Ketchum

I'd Give Anything For You - Roderic is desperate to show Clare how much he wants her back, so desperate he would give her anything to prove his love. Gory start to collection with a heavy dose of sex thrown in.

Love Letters From the Rain Forest - Great revenge story, a bit slow to get started but nice twist at the end.

Masks - Uninteresting story about a couple that likes to wear masks whilst having sex. Pretty pointless and doesn't go anywhere.

Eyes Left - Three friends spend happy hour checking out woman, identifying the living from the dead in the new world order. Enjoyable story that incorporates different stories around zombies being part of society and has a particularly nasty ending.

Sleep Disorder - A slimy stock broker starts to have problems with his sleep, he's mortified to find out he talks in his sleep. Since he has spent his life screwing people over he is worried about saying anything incriminating. He records himself and plays it back with interesting results.

Good seeing you - a rought draft of Sleep disorder with a different ending.
I would do anything for you - a rought draft of I'd give anything for you which includes more sex if that can be believed.

Enjoyable short story collection that features some very strong woman and some very nasty people get their come uppance in grand style.

Goon
Goon - Edward Lee,John Pelan I am almost ashamed that I laughed out loud a few times at some of the nasties in here. Almost. Not quite. It’s Edward Lee, man. What do you expect? Inappropriate on so many levels. It wouldn’t even be Edward Lee if you didn’t throw up in your mouth a little. Goon is no exception. Trust me.
