About this title


A dentist from New Jersey, marooned at midnight in the Florida swamps, makes the mistake of falling into the clutches of a hilariously depraved family of amateur surgeons devoted to a 17th-century libertine whose discovery of an elixir has kept his evil presence alive for the past three-hundred years.

From the Back Cover:

"A certain noble earl had need of a handsome, young, female carcass -- for which specimen I would be excellently paid provided it be fresh and that the feet were shapely and unblemished . . . . By nightfall, when I set about my work, it was raining. Gratefully, this inclemency of weather favoured the expedition of my efforts: for not a single hackney passed to retard the steady progress of my digging. Indeed, so quickly did I work, that I had broke into the box, bagged my quarry, replaced the soil, and rode off in my cart, ere I bethought myself to see whether the feet of the poor creature would answer the intent of my commission."
     Thus begins the long association of a young medical doctor and his hilariously depraved American descendants with the notorious Earl of Griswold, a 17th-century libertine and connoisseur of smells whose discovery of an elixir in the Florida swamps will keep his evil presence alive for the next three-hundred years.
     "Lizard World is the best novel I've read in eons.  It feels more like a found manuscript than a work of the imagination.  Like all great fiction the novel takes the reader home; this journey leads into the darkest caverns of the self. The story will make you weak with laughter.  But it will also make you whole."
                    -- Ben Cheever, author of Strides.
     "The command of the language of the period is astonishing and the prose manages to be racy and vivid as well as convincing."
                    -- Charles Palliser, author of The Quincunx
     "Terry Richard Bazes pushes us into a bizarre world that vacillates between the past and present -- and is told by a writer whose imagination seems to have no bounds."
                   -- Barney Rosset, publisher of the Evergreen Review and founder of Grove Press
