About the Author
Robert J. Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction, but such are the trials of puberty. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He makes his home in Atlanta with his loving wife Bonnie and mummy-obsessed son Sebastian.

Compared to his previous release, Eight Black Offerings, this one is more moody, and leans less on physical and sexual horror. While it does lean Lovecraftian, it never does so without a firm grounding in more traditional Southern gothic moods. Weirdly, I found the body-horror stories about eel armed relatives and mutant catfish ("Thy Father's Hands", "The Catfish Milkers") more vivid than some of the other less fantastic stories, like the titular story or "Vreck Stone's Last Match".
If Eight Black Offerings was not explicit enough for you, stay clear: this book is less explicit than that. If it was a bit too much, on the other hand, maybe this one is more your speed. Unless eel armed people and mutant catfish drug sex magic are too much for you no matter what the circumstances.
