Not liked too much "The Backwoods", but my second Lee's book was a far better reading: funny, gory and disturbing. Graphic sex scenes (novel's title is a warning...), ultra-violence, well developed characters, creepy old towns, lovecraftian references (Old Dunwich and Pickman's lane! Ah!!!), a shocking unexpected final twist and Duke Belluxi was an hell of a serial killer! Mr Edward Lee just gained a new fan. :D

More modern day low-budget-horror De Sadery from Lee on this one. It’s basically about an ancient matriarchal British tribe (forgotten contemporaries of the Angles, Jutes, Saxons, etc) of female sex-demons(?) that prey upon the weak-willed creature that is man. Lee had a good enough concept right there, but he had to fuck around and set it in modern times (sex-demons are obviously immortal, guys) in the ever-present trope setting of horror--the small town. Aside from some very minor and unimpres ...more

I really liked this book on succubi and their servants in a little town someplace in the USA. The author is an excellent writer, the story is full of suspense, fluid. Also the historical background on the origin of the English language is quite interesting. You wouldn't expect that when reading a book that is quite hard and open in some descriptions. If you are interested in witches, devil worship and sects this definitely is the book for your. A real pageturner full of suspense, sex, brutality ...more

I guess anyone who follow me is well aware that I'm on an Edward Lee kick. I've been a fan of "splatterpunk" since the late 90's. That term isn't really used anymore and has been replaced with "extreme horror." Fine. Edward Lee is probably in my top 5 extreme horror writers. The books aren't particularly good but they do satisfy a craving for really grotesque and disturbing things.

I've only read a few of Lee's books but I recently came into a collection of them, so I may be on this kick for a w

Structurally, the whole book alternates almost entirely between scenes of sex and violence (with no small amount of overlap). While I'll admit this was getting a little tedious during the latter half of the book, the author's real talent is evident when he isn't being overly indulgent. He does manage a decent pacing, revealing just enough of the truth of events to keep things interesting before building to what should be a dramatic climax...and promptly ends the damned book.

Okay, let's get something clear here -- this is a horror book, an early entry in the horror sub-genre termed "splatterpunk." It is filled with scenes of unremitting gore, sex, and gory sex. It has absolutely no morally redeeming features about it. With all that said, if that's your bag, baby, you could do far worse than this book.

Gory as a mofo, but to me it felt like Lee rushed the ending. There are other books he has written where the ending seemed to come out of nowhere and, before you know it, the book was over, and it worked. (If you can stomach it, read THE BIG HEAD to find out what I mean.) However, here it just feels sloppy.

Omg very good

People complained about the sex and violence in the book but they have understand Edward Lee... He writes a lot about sex and violence... Especially about hell...and his describes them to perfection...except in ghoul that one sucked..5 succubi out 5

The Mc in this one is the biggest bitch from hell and the worst steriotype of a lawyer that you can get. I hated her guts so much that I wanted to climb into the book and kill her. She is pulled over for a random drink drive test and despite having nothing to hide, she bullies, sneers, threatens and humiliates the poor cops who are just doing their job.

She is bigoted against her daughter's friends because they look different. She resents her writer boyfriend for not making more money and won't

I've read a large amount of Ed Lee's works and have highly enjoyed most of them. This one, not so much. Maybe I'm just getting old, but this nonstop cavalcade of severely unpleasant porno-horror was torturous to wade through. Add in some really dumb coincidences in the final third and you have a very uneven, non-satisfying book. Lee makes the mistake of repeating the lead character's nightmares in great detail over and over again. Also, the "big reveal" at the end was kind of dumb, as was the su ...more

Super gory and freaky! I was totally appalled by the escaped lunatics. Readers should be aware that this book features graphic content and explicit sex scenes, but I found it fit well into the story. I was disturbed by this book, which makes it an excellent horror read in my opinion. My only complaint is the strange language used by the succubi, but I eventually pieced together meanings by the end of the book. Awesome splatterpunk read.
This book is not part of Mr. Lee's Appalachia series, nor is related to Incubi but it covers much of the same ground. This book centers around a gynocentric cult and all the lesbian sex/violence that follows suit.

That book had some good bits, but predictability of some events and that amount of disgustingness was simply overwhelming. Probably just not my type of book but it was still kinda enjoyable. Weird.
