John Edward Lawson
Publisher of Raw Dog Screaming Press and author of Last Burn In Hell, Pocket Full of Loose Razorblades and four poetry collections.
“From hereon forth, I will not be able to bring up Vonnegut without speaking of Lawson. John Edward Lawson could contest the throne that Chuck Palahniuk sits upon with the masses of college students looking for something different, a voice of the counter-culture.” —Skullring.org
“Without a doubt, John Edward Lawson is what Friedrich Nietzsche would have called an ‘Ubermensch’ (‘overman,’ or ‘superman’) of the written word.” —Midwest Book Review
