Deadite Press and Section 31 Productions are proud to present the most infamous event in all of horror literature – the Gross Out Contest at Killer Con in Austin, TX! This year’s event will be hosted by Section 31 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. After three minutes the audience will decide if you get to continue. If you are lucky enough to continue, you have two minutes to finish. 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, August 17th.
Passing judgment over the night will be some of the biggest names in horror and bizarro. Their identities will be revealed soon.
If you think you have what it takes, send an email to GrossOutContest at Gmail dot Com with the subject line: GROSS OUT SIGN UP.
Spots are extremely limited!
Note: You must be a registered attendee of Killer Con to compete.

Recipe for a Satanic panic:
Take a medium-sized cult and their best demonic summoning. Mix with a dash of strange psychic powers. Generously add murderous reanimated corpses, inbred cannibal rednecks, sex-starved half-naked coeds, horny football players, and a surprise creature or two. Sprinkle in a fancy log cabin mansion, a labyrinthine set of tunnels, and a secret ritual chamber. Stir. Bake on high at 666 degrees.
You know it’s gonna be one killer party…
“I get it potential reader, you hear it all the time, this writer is special and like no one else, but I gotta say I really can’t compare Gina Ranalli to anyone. A brave writer who is not afraid to freak out her readers with high concepts, fully realized characters and important ideals that sometimes challenge and often amuse. Join the cult of Gina.” – David Agranoff, author of The Vegan Revolution…with Zombies and Ring of Fire
“Alternatively intense and whimsical, dark and absurd, Ranalli is a Bizarro and horror master. – Garrett Cook, A God of Hungry Walls and Crisis Boy
“When I think about my favorite horror writers, many names come to mind. When I think of authors capable of crafting truly creepy narratives, the list is great. When I talk about bizarro legends, some names come up. When I think of authors who can do all that with inimitable style, a single name is left: Gina Ranalli.” – Gabino Iglesias, author of Zero Saints and Coyote Songs
From Wonderland Award-winning author, Gina Ranalli, comes two novellas of terror, monsters, and pure insanity.

Only one more show and heavy metal guitarist Spencer Hesston can finally quit Rot in Hell. No more touring, no more fighting, and no more unwanted advances from the lead singer’s girlfriend. But instead of waking up the next day in their Midwestern hometown, the band finds themselves dazed and confused in an abandoned settlement in the middle of the desert, with no idea of how they got there.
Things are done a little differently out here: the trees have perverse urges, the spiders have human fingers, and every time they step outside the town transforms into a new hellish nightmare.
In this town anything is possible, except making it out in one piece…
