Reflect and Squirm

“I’ve read many of John Edward Lawson’s books from his poetry to his short stories and even his screen play doubling as a novel. Devil Entendre (love that name!) is John at his best. The Invisible Girl and Unmapped Approaches to Infinity are two of my favorites. The first is sad and potent with desperate characters and a haunting climax. The other delves into the sublime, which is one of my favorite themes. It is used quite effectively for a bit of cosmic horror in this collection. Much here to make a reader reflect and squirm and think upon.”

—H. Miller

The above is from a new review of my horror-themed collection Devil Entendre. If you’re looking for an ebook suitable for the Halloween season you can preview Devil Entendre over at From the book description:

This collection of horror stories asks: are there moments in your past you ignore…pretend never happened…moments you hide from yourself and others? What if the only thing imbuing our past with a sense of dread and terror is the fact that our future is based on it? And every evil incident has given the devil a foothold to step inside and make himself at home in our hearts. Be it a secret vice, a childhood trauma, or disturbing holiday traditions, Devil Entendre is a Petri dish in which the dark moments of our lives are allowed to evolve unencumbered.
