No train has run on this railroad since the end of the Civil War-a railroad built by a servitor to perfect evil--and its rusted tracks run right behind the house. Justin Collier expects his respite in Gast, Tennessee, to be relaxing if not a bit dull, but he will find out soon enough that those same train tracks once led to a place worse than Hell. Join master of the macabre Edward Lee on a nightmare excursion of Civil War horror.


____________________


WELCOME TO THE GAST HOUSE - A historical bed and breakfast or a monument to the obscene? Collier doesn`t need to know the building`s rich history: women raped to death for sport, slaves beheaded and threshed into the soil, and pregnant teenagers buried alive. Who or what could mitigate such horrors over 150 years ago? And what is the atrocious connection between the old railroad and the house? Each room hides a new, revolting secret. At night, he can smell the mansion`s odors and hear its appalling whispers. Little girls giggle where there are no little girls, and out back, when Collier listens closely, he can hear the train`s whistle and see the things chained up in its clattering prison cars. Little does he know, the mansion and the railroad aren`t haunted by ghosts but an unspeakable carnality and a horror as palpable as excited human flesh. WELCOME TO A PLACE WORSE THAN HELL...

Edward Seymour Lee Aliases: Richard Kinion L. E. Seymour / LE Seymour Philip Straker / Philip Straker Edward Lee was born May 25, 1957 in Washington, and raised in Bowie, Maryland. From 1976 to 1979, Lee served in the US Army and was later transferred to the 1st Armored Division based in Erlangen, West Germany. After returning to the United States, Lee worked as a police officer. Three months later, after quitting for fear of “getting hurt on the job,” Lee returned to college. Lee left college just as quickly because he wanted to be a writer. In 1982, his first novel, Night Bait, was released under the pseudonym Philip Straker, which was unsuccessful. For the next 15 years, Lee worked as a night watchman and wrote during the day. In 1997, he quit his job and moved to Seattle. Then, tired of Seattle, he moved to Saint Pete Beach, Florida. His favorite horror novel is Our Lady of Darkness by Fritz Leiber. His favorite horror writers are H.F. Lovecraft and Ramsey Campbell. Since 2007, Lee`s love for Lovecraft`s work has resulted in the creation of free sequels to the Myths of Cthulhu, written in the spirit of Lee rather than the creator of the original Myths. Edward Lee is best known for his highly elaborate occult concepts; a large number of erotic scenes, sometimes written out with a terribly painful imagination, and no less super-detailed scenes of violence; specific humor with a blackish tinge. Lee is simply a champion in the number of titles: "bad guy of horror literature", "the most extreme of the league of extreme authors", "the one who blurs the boundaries of what is allowed", etc. A number of connoisseurs of Lee`s work note a specific moral message contained in Lee`s books, expressed in a very strange way and using the same crazy means from the author`s arsenal. Other admirers compare Lee`s works of allegory and irony to Aesop`s fables. In 2006, his story "Header" was filmed. At the moment, along with Roth James White, J.F. Gonzalez, Jack Ketchum, Lee is one of the leading representatives of extreme horror: very prolific, widely known among fans, has long acquired (at least in the USA) cult status. Many writers of the genre equal or even try to imitate him (Brian Keane paid tribute to Lee`s work; Monica J. O`Rourke, R. Fredrick Hamilton and others). Quite often, Lee serves as a kind of benchmark against which publishers and / or critics compare the newly published books of young writers. © JuicyJ Author`s site: www.edwardleeonline.com
