#2 THE MINOTAURESS (2007)
These fall under the category of Ed Lee's redneck horror. The author's "redneck horror" story line also touches on the Infernal series, or rather it would be more accurate to say that both story lines inhabit the same mythos.
It's not just disgusting though. The story is very well written, with a humourous narative style and captivates from start to finish.
Bravo, Mr Lee. I look forward to reading more of your merry carnage!
I have always prided myself on not being a squicky reader and this book is one of the rare few to really "squick me out" but I persevered, and I'm glad I did. In the first book, the only thing that bummed me out was when one of the main characters, Balls didn't suffer as much as he should have. I also think Crafter should've played a bigger part. That being said, I loved how Dicky was a fat, stupid, moron who somehow became almost lovable(in a pitiful way of course) and Balls became increasingly vulgar while originally being sexist and racist. It all served to make the story so wonderful.
The second story was just as well done but had one glaring flaw in it. When you dehorn a bull, cow or steer, they are not rendered harmless. In fact, they become agitated and more violent. I've seen dehorning done in real life and just because they can't gore you doesn't mean they wouldn't head butt, trample or otherwise kill you if given the chance. The main character should not have just whipped his horn crankers out like kryptonite and saved the day. While the first book"s foulness and sexism made it seem more real and gripping, the second gave me the impression that the author might actually "be" sexist. I know that this is not true, at least not by the other books I graze the backs of. But the way that Arriane thinks the hero's abuse is affection is an absurd turn off. And the hero should not have been rewarded for this. It was almost Gorean in a way except much better written.
This review seems undoubtably negative. Edward I am sorry. That being taken care of, you are indeed a magnificent writer and halfway through the second story I couldn't put the iTouch down. I just finished the book two hours ago. The grammar for geniuses and "goats" alike was impeccable and I didn't find any spelling errors. I also like the way you inserted yourself comically into the story. It was a great read, and I will be checking out other works of yours.
For the hardest of hardcore horror readers- you will surely cringe and laugh as I did while reading these deranged stories, and to everyone else I warn you. This book shatters societies norms of perverse, obscene, and offensive and inside are pages full of corpse sex, sodomy, diseased genitals, rape, extreme torture, horrific gore and an obundancy of bodily fluids. This book ascends high above a new level of discust and to Mr. Lee I commend you on a job well done!
