"Trolley No. 1852" by Edward Lee

Synopsis - (from

In 1934, horror writer H.P. Lovecraft is invited to write a story for a subversive underground magazine, all on the condition that a pseudonym will be used. The pay is lofty, and God knows, Lovecraft needs the money. There's just one catch. It has to be a pornographic story . . . All Aboard Trolley No. 1852 Through the midnight bowels of New York City, the trolley travels. Admitting only a special sort of passenger, and taking them to a very select destination . . . The 1852 Club is a bordello unlike any other. Its women are the most beautiful in the whole city and they will do anything. But there is something else going on at this sex club. In the back rooms monsters are performing vile acts on each other and doors to other dimensions are opening . . .


Rating - 4 out of 5

Genre - Splatterpunk, Horror


I love Edward Lee. He is one of my favorite authors. This book just continues with the grotesque and weird that I have come to adore from Lee. It takes you on a trippy journey that some may not be ready to venture. I loved each and every character in this book. Yes, I may be gushing a bit, so what. I, in some strange way, related to them all. I love characters that I can relate to in a bizarre way. 

If you are looking for a review with a rundown of what happened, I am not your chick to get reviews from. I simply give my opinions of the book and what I have read. That is why I post a synopsis on my blog!

I do recommend this book for Edward Lee fans. If you cannot handle gore and twisted imagination, this is a never-read.
