HEADER by Edward Lee
In the dark backwoods, where law enforcement doesn’t dare tread, there exists a special type of revenge. Something so awful that it is only whispered about. Something so terrible that few believe it is real.
Stewart Cummings is a government agent whose life is going to Hell. His wife is ill and to pay for her medication he turns to bootlegging. But things will get much worse when bodies begin showing up in his sleepy small town. Victims of an act known only as “a Header.”
Deadite Press is proud to bring back the notorious inspiration for the hit cult film – a splatterspunk classic of twisted sex, booze, and revenge.
“HEADER is the seminal work of hardcore horror by which all other works are judged. Required reading for fans of Edward Lee and absolutely essential reading for any true horror fan. One of my favorites.”
– BRIAN KEENE, author of URBAN GOTHIC and CASTAWAYS
“Edward Lee holds a very special place in modern horror. He can and will gross you out or tweak your sex drive if he damn well feels like it — and he often does — Lee likes sex and guts and he’s not ashamed about it. He can out-splatter the most over-the-top splatterpunks, drive a story like a racehorse and he knows how to scare the hell out of you. But he can also slow you way down if he wants to and make you feel and think. And that’s what makes him unique”.
– JACK KETCHUM, award-winning author of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR and THE LOST
