Anton Cancre

Anton Cancre is one of those rotting, pus-filled thingies on the underside of humanity that your mother always warned you about. He has oozed symbolic word-farms onto the pages of DEAD SOULS, THE GHOST IS THE MACHINE and D.O.A. II as well as continuing to vomit his oh-so-astute literary opinions, random thoughts and nonsense at antoncancre.blogspot.com and evisceratingpen.wordpress.com. No, he will most definitely not watch your pet shoggoth this weekend, but he is interested in taking that new brain case for a spin through the cosmos.

Book Review: Day Terrors – Editors Kfir Luzzato and Dru Pagliassotti


DAY TERRORS “I yanked her head back by her hair and sank my teeth in her neck, crunching through her esophagus, and again, and again, chewing, swallowing, her blood washing hot over my face, my neck, feeling her spasm and die, sacrificed to the new race she had created. I dropped her corpse, a gravestone over what humanity had been. ...

Book Review: Brain Cheese Buffet – Author Edward Lee


BRAIN CHEESE BUFFET “Their philosophy was societal and rather militant in its feministic design. Never mind that they were f*cked up in the head: abused, malnurished and locked in closets as children, maladapted via unbridled drug and alcoholuse and hence damaged certain critical brain receptors, and, in general, rife with a plethora of environmentally causated personality disorders and biogenic amine ...
