Lawson’s second poetry collection mixes the humorous with the grotesque in a bizarre collection of new and previously published poetry. This volume showcases his more story-like poems, many of which are favorites at his readings. Appearances by Pee Wee Herman, the hook hand of urban legend, and the Egyptian god Anubis will have you laughing despite yourself. This second edition contains over 30 pages of bonus material featuring Lawson at his most bizarre and irreverent.
«Collected poetry from previous publications, The Horrible gives you tiny tastes of the horrific dementia and wonderfully imagined regurgitations of Lawson's own nightmare bucket. He leaves you with images that will remain long after you've finished reading — something akin to shadows in the aftermath of an A-Bomb.» -Kelli Owen for HorrorWeb
