Product description

About the Author

Edward Lee is the author of almost fifty novels and numerous short stories and novellas (or is it novellae? Hmm.) Several of his properties have been optioned for film, while Header was released on DVD in 2009; also, he has been published in Germany, England, Romania, Greece, and Austria. Recent releases include Bullet Through Your Face and Brain Cheese Buffet (story collections), Header 2, and the hardcore Lovecraftian books The Innswich Horror, Trolley No. 1852, Pages Torn From A Travel Journal, Going Monstering, and Haunter of the Threshold. One of Lee’s creative ambitions is to one day write an effective M.R. James pastiche. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By SonicQuack VINE VOICE on 22 Feb. 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Superficial stereotypes, monstrous worms, hidden military agendas. We've seen it a million times (well, maybe not in worm form, although Tremors is close enough). Slither breaks no new territory here, although it does get the Edward Lee treatment. That means almost all the horror is of a perverse nature, it's his forte and it works. Slither is mean and dirty, with almost no likeable characters, yet the combination of adult-themed horror and a genuine desire to see how people will die keeps you flipping the pages. Don't pick up Slither expecting to get cerebrally challenged, but expect an easy read which it entertaining enough, even though wildly improbable.

A bunch of disposable stereotypes are stuck on an island with giant worms, giant worm eggs, a giant worm man (complete with worm penis), killer rednecks, and sinister military types. The result is a tongue-in-cheek creature feature with more gore, horror, and sex than you can shake a stick at. Might not want to read it on a full stomach though.

5.0 out of 5 stars How can something so wrong, read so right? 1 Sept. 2015
By Andres F. Prieto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
What a sickly fun read. Edward Lee is that dude that has trouble seeing the wrongness in anything. Whether it's having one more cigarette, one more drink or one more lapdance from the half drunk possibly expecting stripper, it's all good. He's that little red dude on our shoulder telling you it's ok to go to VIP. It's a feeling I get whenever I dive into one of Lee's books. No matter what the subject, his writing is pristine so even the most depraved act of debauchery doesn't seem so bad. Also, everything Lee puts to paper, shines. Doesn't matter if that glitter comes off the diamonded gleam of a lake in the summer, the beads of water sparkling on the goose-pimpled skin of some buxom hottie or the volcanic pus-filled runny blisters erupting from some poor redneck's infected skin rash, he makes it all look great in full Panamorph Anamorphic 4K UltraHDTV.

So it came is no surprise really that Slither shines bright. Killer giant worms are the main event here but also sharing the blood soaked stage are some very smart but sexually repressed scientists, one very hot but morally stunted photographer, a couple of redneck psychos, their charming girlfriend, a few horny teens and some creepy military dudes. It all takes place on this beautiful but possibly radioactive island with no escape.

In Lee's unexpectedly hefty book, the bodies get stacked high, there is a very decent amount of gross WTF moments and there's plenty of sexy shenanigans to entertain. Get some. Shine on Mr. Lee.

Very good read. Kept one guessing until the very end as to who the Antagonists were and judging from where it left off I can't wait for the Sequel.

An experiment on an island results in mutated parasitic worms and ova. As luck would have it, the island suddenly gets more visitors than usual and all hell breaks loose. This is a great throwback to the horror nasties of the '70s and '80s. If you like your horror stories to be filled with gore, sex, and violence; as well as a mean streak, than you'll like this. It's not among my all-time favorites, but it is probably the best horror book of the last decade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Completely Different Story 13 Nov. 2013
By A.R. Braun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This isn't the same tale as the movie--God knows why--but it was a really good story, especially the ending. It had some info dumps and was a little too long, but otherwise very entertaining.
