Richard Laymon, Bram Stoker Award winning American author, (1947-2001)
"If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat." --Stephen King
Richard Laymon wrote disturbing, slightly sick and perhaps a bit perverted horror stories. He always took his stories a bit darker and further than Stephen King. He was never afraid of going for the gross-out.
, Dean Koontz
and Bentley Little
were all Laymon fans.
Due to trouble with editors (censorship) in the U.S.A., his work is better known in Europe, Australia and the rest of the world, where his work is published in 15 languages.
Luckily for his American fans, many of Laymon's books are being restored to their original uncut form.
"No one writes like Laymon, and you're going to have a good time with anything he writes." --Dean Koontz
"One of horror's rarest talents" -- Publishers Weekly
An International Bestselling Author, Richard Laymon writes awesome horror stories such as "Beast House", "Darkness, Tell Us," and "The Traveling Vampire Show" and "the Woods are Dark."
