Perhaps you’re unaware how long it takes for a book to be designed, printed and shipped. Sometimes it feels like forever.

We are now excited to finally receive our copies of the fabulous hardcover book Pulp Macabre: The Art of Lee Brown Coye’s Final and Darkest Era. And what a glorious thing it is.

Coye was a spectacular illustrator of horror fiction. His detailed work was quite extraordinary, finer than just about any artist in the genre. Late in his life Coye was felled by a huge stroke, disallowing him the use of his painterly hand. As a result Coye was forced to learn how to use his non-favorable hand to illustrate once again. As a result, his post-stroke style became even stranger and weirder than before.

Edited by Mike Hunchback and Caleb Braaten (of Brooklyn’s great record label Sacred Bones), Pulp Macabre is fully deserving of your attention, and it’s available from Feral House right now here:

You can see Coye’s work as featured in Pulp Macabre in the video trailer for the book.
