Blood For You: A GG Allin Tribute (2015, Freak Tension)

Writer
"The Coprophagus"

ORDER HERE!

Think GG Allin was extreme? You don’t know the half of it.

GG Allin's exploits are legendary. The music, the shows, the violence, the bodily fluids. But GG Allin was confined to a world where he couldn't fulfill his potential. He punched and kicked at the boundaries, eager for something bigger, something crazier, something much more fucked up. But the real world refused to give him the adventures he needed.

Now, thanks to underground fiction’s most talented scumfucs, GG is cast in a series of adventures that truly befit his outlaw spirit. In these pages, GG Allin is a secret agent, engaging in cult-smashing missions in exchange for dirty sex with George and Barbara Bush. He’s a shit-eating, spaceship-piloting and time-traveling savior of humanity. He’s an orisha, called upon to save prisoners from ‘roid rage mutant guards. He’s one half of a deepfried onion ring ouroboros with his soulmate John Wayne Gacy. He’s thousands of clones living inside your giant robot body.

Get ready to see GG Allin like you’ve never seen him before!

Still, she does her best. Andy, on the other hand, does not. Thinking he is getting back at his perfect sister with an online prank, Andy inadvertently sells his sister and her friends on an auction website that caters to psychopathic mass murderers and serial killers. Soon, Adrienne and Andy’s idyllic life is torn apart as the Bidder comes calling. He is a well-oiled killing machine that makes easy work of Adrienne’s friends at school and pursues her all the way to the big spring house party where the clueless suburbanites line up for the slaughter. Only the small town cops and Adrienne’s loser brother can get there in time and, even if they do, they’ve never encountered anything like the Bidder before.

Writer/Creator

Buy it HERE!

This 60-page graphic novel from Source Point Press, written and created by David Hayes, tells the bizarre tale of young Peter Cotton, who grew up in the town of Easter Falls and loves rabbits. Peter’s science project on rabbit breeding is ruined when the school bullies beat up and actually kill his rabbit. Years later, the kindly but still shy Dr. Cotton works steadily, gently with his rabbits to cure human infertility. Unbeknownst to Peter, the military is perverting his work, developing fierce soldiers with strength far exceeding a human of their size, and with Peter’s fertility serum, the ability to breed in the field. Peter discovers the true nature of the experiment and tries to stop it. But in an accident of poetic justice, a bite from an experimental rabbit combines with Peter’s own serum to transform him into the evil Rottentail. This creature heads to Easter Falls to exact revenge for the wrongdoings of his youth and to finally lay claim to the love of his life. His timing could not be better since Easter Falls biggest day of the year is coming up and the entire town will be there to watch the annual Easter Parade.

Yeitso (2015, Blood Bound Books)

Editor

BUY IT HERE!

Veteran detective Russell Andrews has seen the dangers of big-city life: rape, murder, gangs.

It's not a place he wants to raise a teenage daughter on his own. After his divorce, he moves with her to serve as the sheriff of a sleepy New Mexican town. But the desert has dangers of its own--deadly secrets that eat men alive. Secrets growing in power.

Andrews comes face-to-face with a thing out of myth, a force without a name in the modern world. The Navajo, though, call it Yeitso.

Rise of the Dead (2015, Burning Bulb)

Writer
"End Scene"

BUY IT HERE!

"By now almost everyone knows that the concept of the modern flesh-eating zombie originated in the sixties with Night of the Living Dead. That's why I think that this anthology of short stories paying homage to that fact is a wonderful idea. When I was asked to write such a story, I was told that each and every story in the book would have to take place in or around the time, in 1968, when the horror classic that I co-authored took place…

Perhaps, for you, dear reader, some of the stories you will read in these pages will take their place as some of your very own favorites. Please step back with me into the 1960's – a time of peaceniks, rednecks and unspeakable zombie horror!!"
