Dangerous Ambulant Carrot
Icons of Fright will be running a very detailed review of Pocket Full of Loose Razorblades (John’s collection that was put out by Afterbirth Books.) It’s a really cool piece because Scott Lefebvre is the reviewer who best understands where John’s work is coming from. The review isn’t up yet but I’ll post a link when it does go up. In the meantime, I liked his description of meeting John:
Flash forward a year, or rather from here and now, flash backward three months to March. I’m at HorrorFind Maryland in its new location and I recognize John Edward Lawson, which is difficult not to do once you’ve met the man because he’s got about a foot on me. Tall and thin and has this huge mane of frizzy hair. Kind of like a dangerous ambulant carrot. Or maybe a celery stalk.
