Almost a year ago I was aimlessly scrolling through Instagram when a picture caught my eye. He was thin and pale, scruffy but wild eyed dressed in archaic clothes with this look of murder and madness as he hopped through the rain with an axe in his hands.

I was recently introduced to the works of author Edward Lee. The graphic, terrifying, gritty and sexualized stories are enough to turn stomachs and terrify even the bravest souls. Heavily influenced by Lovecraft with an overarching theme of violent, erotically charged cosmic horror and a beautifully descriptive prose style, his stories blur the line between the grotesque and the inescapably wonderful. After finishing Pages Torn from a Travel Journal I decided I had to at leas
