From a serial killer’s yard sale to a hoarder’s hideous secret. From a cartoon character made real to a man addicted to car accidents. From a bloody Halloween to child murder as a means for saving the world. The rules of normalcy and society no longer apply – you’re now in a place of cruelty, terror, and things that go bump in the night.
In Shane McKenzie’s first collection – he explores the horrific, the grotesque, the perverse, and the downright bizarre in ten short stories. Each tale includes an introduction providing insight into the creative process of one of the hottest writers in modern horror.
This collection also features an introduction and two bonus stories from the writers/directors of Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary – the Soska Sisters!
The mosh-pits have become a warzone…
The hardcore punk scene in 1980s Philadelphia was legendary, and Mack and Jason were at the center of it all – going to shows and fighting Nazi skinheads. In the streets there is a new gang – the Unrest. They started as a shitty hardcore band but became the center of those filled with hate and rage. The Unrest are here to clean the city of the queers and lesser races…
Fighting is no longer enough for Mack and Jason. Their enemy is becoming too strong and too eager to inflict the worst kinds of pain and death. To get the streets back, they must be willing to go further than ever before-now they must be willing to kill…
From the modern master of hardcore horror, Wrath James White, comes a novel of street-level violence, hardcore punk, and the passion of friendship.
From the most disturbing mind in modern horror, Edward Lee, comes four stories of extreme perversion and visceral horror.
THE STICK WOMAN – Priscilla has been held hostage, physically mutilated, and fed feces for years. And her situation is about to get much, much worse.
SHIT-HOUSE – How bad is the world around you? How much worse could it get? How far would you go to fix it?
THE USHERS – They are always there – somewhere in the background and just out of sight. A force of violence and lust. They are the ushers…
THE SEA-SLOP THING – June needs a new job – and she’s found it, along with something from the deepest depths of the sea.

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

When the zombies come to Redding, California, it all goes down in a matter of days.
They say the first to die are the lucky ones. But there’s nothing lucky about these poor fucks, shot from behind or gutted and gnawed on the streets of their city gone wild.

Bryan Killian’s debut novel is a thrilling non-stop ultraviolent powerhouse of undead action.
WELCOME TO NECROPOLIS
There are no lucky ones…
