"Teratologist" by Edward Lee and Wrath James White

Synopsis – (from

Billionaire John Farrington is obsessed with the idea of offending God to the point that God would want to confront him in person. Farrington has abducted priests and nuns to commit sexual atrocities with the most grievously genetically deformed people he can find. People that he's also abducted and kept in such a high state of sexual intensity, with a drug his company produces, that they are just ravenous for physical contact. The abductees, with basically no self control, commit some of the most depraved sex acts, over, and over again. Westmore and Bryant, a photographer and journalist, are given the rare opportunity to interview the reclusive Farrington and see inside his mansion and operation. Only to find the horrors within, and who have become pawns in the mysteries they find behind every door. Farmington's plan may work, and to make sure he's successful, he will do whatever it takes to have the deity of man face him.


Rating: 5 out of 5

Genre: Horror, Splatterpunk

Ever since I read my first Edward Lee book, I have wanted this book. It is not available in eBook form as of this post. Luckily, I received it as a gift otherwise it would have stayed low on my to-read list.

This book was co-authored by Wrath James White. This duo made for an awesomely-grotesque team of the sickening kind.

The book is perfect in length for if it would have been shorter or longer, the gripping details could have proved too little or too much. This was just right!

The story was interesting but what grabbed me by the balls (if I had any) was the grotesqueness of the actions performed within the story. Disturbing acts of freaky sex occurs frequently throughout with enough description to make the reader bit their lip and hold back a little vomit.

The eccentric character made the entire story. Without him and the developmental skills of Lee and White, this story would have flopped big time. He was the meat of the whole book!

I recommend this book to anyone who loves the disturbing, grotesque and all and out face-slapping sickness of Lee and White.
