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.

At more than twice the price, TUGtSaZA doesn't present any solid reason to purchase it over what is considered by many to be the definitive guide of its type.

Book Review: Three Zombies and a Demon – Author Roy C. Booth

Three-Zombies-Cover

Nobody goes to plays anymore. They're boring, lifeless things only enjoyed by the rich and snobby as a way to pretend that they are better than the rest of us. Well, Mr. Naysayer in my head, I beg to disagree. Maybe it would change your mind if we threw in some rotting, flesh hungry ghouls and horned minions of darkness in adaptations of stories from one of the premier purveyors of literary horror out there, Necrotic Tissue. By the guy that brought Brian Keene's soul searing exploration of fiscal depression and a dead boy Jesus, Terminal, to the stage. I got your attention now, don't I, Sparky?
