Under Appreicated Horror Author #6 - Richard Laymon

Richard Laymon wrote many well received novels in the horror genre before he died in 2001. His peers knew him well, however to non-horror fans he's basically an unknown. And that's a shame. Also published novels under Carl Laymon and Richard Kelly. Many of his short stories can be found in collections.

I've read Cuts, about a serial killer, which was as graphic and brutal of a novel as anything I read before. This was my first forray into Laymon. A handful of other a setting in my pile of books to read.
