Lexicon by Christopher Burns

As chapbooks are so short (typically 8 - 18 pages), to give a storyline would spoil the thrill of this spine-tingling tale!

Peer & Press Reviews

Christopher Burns has wittily reimagined a primitive creature of myth, and turned him into a scholar and a gentleman.  His appetites, however, remain as voracious as ever.

Patrick McGrath, author of Writing Madness

Burns is playing with archetypes, and there is some connection between the sins of the past and present.  Evil is continuous, it is transmitted, but not by inheritance, but through the elements of culture.

Ray Garraty, Endless Falls

Neat story with a dark heart.

Sara Crowley, A Salted
