To paraphrase a high pitched nutcase from a rather rowdy clan, I tend to enjoy getting a bit f*cked up, then partaking in actions and events that are of an equal condition. Okay, maybe more than just a bit. Why am I telling you this? More importantly, why should you care?
Because, if youβre like me, then you should be fairly excited about some f*cked up shit Blood Bound Books has coming your way via their followup to 2011βs D.O.A.Β If you follow my reviews, then you know I didnβt feel the original was as βextremeβ (whatever the hell that term is supposed to mean) as I expected it to be, but that it showcased some damn good stories and enough blood to paint an old Victorian three times over. But, now, the folks at BBB have upped the ante and Iβm pretty damn excited.
You like J.F. Gonzales (of Clickers fame)? Yep, heβs here. Ever read the craziest damn Santa story to ever hit my eyeholes (Santa Steps Out)? Say hello to a lovely gift from Robert Devereaux. Your flesh not suffering enough? Fear not, Monica J OβRourke has a cure for that. How about that two ton titan of terror, Wrath James White? Poised to kick your teeth down your throat and make you vomit up your religion. And, creeping up the back stair with a somewhat disconsolate gleam in his eyes, comes Jack βif you donβt know who Iβm talking about then I kinda want you deadβ Ketchum. Plus, I have a story in there, and I know you all love me.
Maybe thatβs still not enough for you. Sometimes, even masters like these can slide out some crap, after all. Maybe you should check in with the grand high mutha f*cka of Hardcore, big daddy Ed βPeckersnotβ Lee, who had a chance to check it out early and had this to say:
“Make sure your health insurance covers psychiatric counseling before reading this book, because you’re gonna need it. The experience of this collection may be likened to getting run over by a 666-car locomotive engineered by Lucifer. This is the cream of grotesquerie’s crop, a Whitman’s Sampler of the heinous, and an absolutely gut-wrenching celebration of the furthest extremities of the scatological, the taboo, the unconscionable, and the blasphemous.
Buy it here. (donβt worry if you only see the Kindle version, hard copies will be available starting July 4th).
