Sign up for the World Horror Convention Gross Out Contest

Deadite Press is proud to host the most infamous event in all of horror literature – the Gross Out Contest at the World Horror Convention in Portland, OR! This year’s event will be hosted by Deadite Press head editor, Jeff Burk, and he’ll also be providing valuable and awe-inspiring prizes!

The contest is simple – your goal is to tell the most extreme, gag-inducing, vile-filled, piece of literary excrement that your twisted mind can summon. You have three minutes to read the story and then you will be stopped and the audience will decide if you will continue. If you pass that test, you have two more minutes to finish your story – you WILL be cut-off at five minutes!

You will be graded on the following criteria – GROSSNESS, HUMOR, AUDIENCE REACTION, PRESENTATION, and ORIGINALITY.

Props and costumes are highly encouraged!

The event will be taking place Saturday evening, May 10th.

Passing judgment over the night will be:
BRIAN KEENE – author of THE RISING and over fifty other books. He is also the recipient of this year’s World Horror Convention Grand Master Award.
DANIEL KNAUF – creator of HBO’s CARNIVALE and writer for DRACULA and SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND.
JOHN SKIPP – author of numerous novels and short stories as well as being one of the founding authors of the Splatterpunk movement.
ROSE O’KEEFE – head publisher of ERASERHEAD PRESS, which is at the forefront of the bizarro, extreme horror, and alt lit genres.

If you think you have what it takes, send an email to DeaditePress at Gmail dot Com with the subject line: GROSS OUT SIGN UP.

Spots are extremely limited!

Note: You must be a registered attendee of the World Horror Convention to compete.

Brian Keene to receive the 2014 World Horror Grand Master Award

From Brian Keene’s website:

We’re lucky enough to work in a genre with a LOT of awards — the Bram Stoker award, Shirley Jackson award, British Fantasy award, Chainsaw award, the Rondos, and many others. In my mind, the two highest honors a horror author could ever hope to achieve are a Stoker LAA and the WHC Grand Master. When I was informed I’d been selected for the latter, I began laughing and crying at the same time. Then, there were a tense five minutes where I thought I was going to have a second heart attack. Once that passed, I shared the news with a small handful of people I love. Then, hours later, I convinced myself that this was all some practical joke. And though several weeks have passed, I’m still half-expecting Christopher Golden or Kelli Owen to jump out from behind a curtain and shout, “Ha! Got you again!”

The previous Grand Master Award winners are (in order) Robert Bloch, Stephen King, Richard Matheson, Anne Rice, Clive Barker, Dean Koontz, Peter Straub, Brian Lumley, Ramsey Campbell, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury, Charles L. Grant, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Jack Williamson, F. Paul Wilson, Ray Garton, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert McCammon, Tanith Lee, James Herbert, Jack Ketchum, T. E. D. Klein, and Dan Simmons. The impact every one of those writers had on me cannot be stressed enough. I was a fan of this genre long before I ever began making my living from it, and every one of those previous winners inspired or entertained me at some point in my life. That I am lucky enough to call several of them friend or mentor has always been a blessing and a dream, even after all these years. That I am somehow now considered worthy enough to accept this honor alongside them is, quite simply, astounding.

We couldn’t be prouder of Keene here at Deadite Press. He has been an intensely creative, influential, and supportive voice in the horror genre and no one is more deserving of the award!
