Thomas E. Staples is a University student currently studying Creative Writing. With a love of both horror and comedy, they often smash the genres together very irresponsibly to see what happens. They have published multiple short stories since 2015, started writing books, too, apparently, and find talking about themselves in the third-person incredibly awkward.

The Case of the Giant Carnivorous Worm is their debut novel.

If I had to pick the best thing, however, it'd be holding the finished book in my hands after countless hours of hard work and being able to feel truly accomplished by it.

(The actual best thing is being able to have the phrase "holy fuck biscuits" professionally printed, but let's gloss over that part.)(less)

I think this is a light 4 stars for me.
I enjoyed it a great deal, especially how creative the whole thing is, but it did get a little buried under itself at times.

Still, I'm glad I read it, and I see why it's loved so dearly.

This is still one of my favourite books ever. I find myself reading it every single year -- one of the few books I've read more than once -- and love it every single time.
