The Rot (2016, Source Point Press)

Writer

GET IT HERE!

When science meddles in the affairs of the supernatural, the consequences can be disastrous. Dwight Cochran, former assassin, developed cancer in prison. After undergoing a secret procedure funded by the government that destroyed half of the prison, Dwight was reborn as The Rot. With the ability to use his cancer as weapon, he vowed to punish the wicked and protect the innocent... no matter where he finds either of them. Heaven can't stop him. Hell is terrified of him. Man wants to use him. Unfortunately, for all of them, The Rot answers to no one.

"This book has some of the greatest writing I have seen and Hayes seems to have a wonderful grasp of building a scene." - Wampaslayer.com

El Cerebro de Hitler (2000)

as El Intoxico

What can I say? Poor choices were made. In this unfinished epic of monstrously disastrous proportions, your hero plays drunken luchador, El Intoxico. The film will never see the light of day (we don't think), but some rare clips were unearthed on the YouTube. This was 'directed' and shot by collage artist Andre Perkowski.

Trash Cinema (2015, Bear Manor)

Writer
Multiple Entries

BUY IT HERE!

It is frequently said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and nowhere is this statement more accurate than in the case of obscure bizarro exploitation films. Containing 55 essays on such trash classics as Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS (1975), I Spit on Your Grave (1978), and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965), Trash Cinema: A Celebration of Overlooked Masterpieces celebrates the good, the bad, and the ugly of these so-called “trash” films. Some of the pieces are reverential, some poke fun at the absurdity of the films, and others offer a more critical eye to these proceedings. With essays from more than 40 noted film writers, this collection is a one-of-a-kind treasure for those among us with a passion for the seedier side of cinema.

Writer

BUY IT HERE!

Captain Andy Gage is the galaxy's janitor. His team has scrubbed some of the worst things off the face of planets. Chemical waste. Radioactive garbage. All of it falls under Gage's watchful eye. Even biological waste. His team is the best Hazmat team around so, when they get a routine call about a biological issue on an inhospitable ice planet it is just another day at the office. This is different, though. Gage and his team are about to come face to face with an entity that they have never experienced before. Something that can control the base and lure in a starship just like Gage's so it can get off-planet and multiply. The only things standing in it's way? Gage and his janitors. On this base, hazardous materials is an understatement.
