Read full description of the books:
Grandpappy, what's a header?
Header is a tale of consummate grotesquerie from the master of graphic horror -- the author of such books as: Succubi, Incubi and Creekers. It is a chapbook of the most extreme fiction you'll ever read! A horrific splatter mystery in the Joe R. Lansdale tradition... bathed in blood!
An old man with no feet, a bumpkin rapist fresh out of prison, a federal cop who will do anything for money... They all have one thing in common...
The ultimate revenge, the ultimate perversion. What kind of a mind could devise such a thing? What kind of evil?
Deep in the hills, something hideous is going on. From the squalid shack you can hear it: the demented revel, the shrill, nerve-racking whine, and screams sailing away into an endless night. But don't look in the window unless you really want to know!
Made Preliminary Stoker Award Ballot for Best Long Fiction of 1996. The classic Lee hardcore horror novella involves a most demented sex act as backwoods vengeance. Originally written for an aborted short story collection called TERRA DEMENTATA, Lee sold this outrageous piece to Necro Publications. He didn’t expect it to sell well. Instead it SOLD OUT and remains a highly sought-after collector’s item to this day. HEADER’s success, in fact, polarized Lee’s hardcore fan-base and is also credited by many of igniting the marketability of small-press novellas as single-project releases. “Necro had balls publishing this,” Lee says. “And I’m damn glad they did ‘cos it made me much more actively aware of the size of the small-press horror market.” This is also the first project to stamp Lee as the master of “redneck” horror, even after the large mass-market release of “Mr. Torso,” in Pocket’s HOT BLOOD: DEADLY AFTER DARK. HEADER has also been optioned for film (see www.whatsaheader.com). Lee’s novella collection, SEX, DRUGS, & POWER TOOLS contains a reprint of HEADER and THE PIG, plus the never-before-published but just as outrageous THE HORN-CRANKER.

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the GoodReads database with this name.
Edward Lee is an American novelist specializing in the field of horror, and has authored 40 books, more than half of which have been published by mass-market New York paperback companies such as Leisure/Dorchester, Berkley, and Zebra/Kensington. He is a Bram Stoker award nominee for his story "Mr. Torso," and his short stories have appeared in over a dozen mass-market anthologies, including THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES OF 2000, Pocket's HOT BLOOD series, and the award-wining 999. Several of his novels have sold translation rights to Germany, Greece, and Romania. He also publishes quite actively in the small-press/limited-edition hardcover market; many of his books in this category have become collector's items. While a number of Lee's projects have been optioned for film, only one has been made, HEADER, which was released on DVD to mixed reviews in June, 2009, by Synapse Films.
Lee is particularly known for over-the-top occult concepts and an accelerated treatment of erotic and/or morbid sexual imagery and visceral violence. He was born on May 25, 1957 in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Bowie, Maryland. In the late-70s he served in the U.S. Army's 1st Armored Division, in Erlangen, West Germany, then, for a short time, was a municipal police officer in Cottage City, Maryland. Lee also attended the University of Maryland as an English major but quit in his last semester to pursue his dream of being a horror novelist. For over 15 years, he worked as the night manager for a security company in Annapolis, Maryland, while writing in his spare time. In 1997, however, he became a full-time writer, first spending several years in Seattle and then moving to St. Pete Beach, Florida, where he currently resides.
Of note, the author cites as his strongest influence horror legend H. P. Lovecraft; in 2007, Lee embarked on what he calls his "Lovecraft kick" and wrote a spate of novels and novellas which tribute Lovecraft and his famous Cthulhu Mythos. Among these projects are THE INNSWICH HORROR, "Trolley No. 1852," HAUNTER OF THE THRESHOLD, GOING MONSTERING, "Pages Torn From A Travel Journal," and "You Are My Everything." Lee promises more Lovecraftian work on the horizon.
