OUT NOW: The Bizarro Starter Kit (purple)

Posted in Bizarro Books on October 27, 2010 by carltonmellick

Out now from Eraserhead Press – the third Bizarro Starter Kit. This time the color is purple and ten more Bizarro Authors present stories and novellas.

There’s a new genre rising from the underground. Its name: BIZARRO. For years, readers have been asking for a category of fiction dedicated to the weird, crazy, cult side of storytelling that has become a staple in the film industry (with directors such as David Lynch, Takashi Miike, Tim Burton, and even Lloyd Kaufman) but has been largely ignored in the literary world, until now. The Bizarro Starter Kit (Purple) features short novels and story collections by ten of the leading authors in the bizarro genre:

Russell Edson – prose poems
Athena Villaverde – Clockwork Girl
David Agranoff – Punkupines of the Apocalypse
Matthew Revert – three stories
Andrew Goldfarb – comics
Jeff Burk – Cripple Wolf
Garrett Cook – Re-Mancipator
Kris Saknussemm – Sparklewheel
Cody Goodfellow – Homewreckers
Cameron Pierce – The Destroyed Room

Halloween Books to Read

Posted in Bizarro Authors, horror, zombies on October 26, 2010 by carltonmellick

Deadite Press, the cult horror imprint of Eraserhead Press, has these new titles that you should check out this Halloween:

SLAUGHTERHOUSE HIGH
by ROBERT DEVEREAUX

Whether you’re a fan of bizarro or extreme horror, you have to read this book. It’s a hardcore slasher tale set in a surreal alternate universe. It really is a must read.

Description:

It’s prom night in the Demented States of America. A place where schools are built with secret passageways, rebellious teens get zippers installed in their mouths and genitals, and once a year, on that special night, one couple is slaughtered and the bits of their bodies are kept as souvenirs. But something’s gone terribly wrong at Corundum High, where the secret killer is claiming a far higher body count than usual . . . Slaughterhouse High is Robert Devereaux’s slicing satire of sex, death, and public education.

THE BOOK OF A THOUSAND SINS
by WRATH JAMES WHITE

This is a must own not only because it’s got one of the best horror book covers of the year, but also because Wrath James White is a master of gore. This collects some of his best, most brutal tales.

Description:

God’s a mean bastard and doesn’t give a shit about you. Welcome to a world of Zombie nymphomaniacs, psychopathic deities, voodoo surgery, and murderous priests. A place where the gate to Heaven is in an elderly whore’s pussy and shit covered sewer drains lead to Hell. Where mutilation sex clubs are in vogue and torture machines are sex toys. This is the mind of Wrath James White. No one makes it out alive – not even God himself. The Book of a Thousand Sins collects fifteen anti-faith tales of depravity, gore, and sex from the celebrated master of hardcore horror. Be warned; Wrath James White is here to scar you.

TROLLEY NO. 1852
by EDWARD LEE

Description:

In 1934, horror writer H.P. Lovecraft is invited to write a story for a subversive underground magazine, all on the condition that a pseudonym will be used. The pay is lofty, and God knows, Lovecraft needs the money. There’s just one catch. It has to be a pornographic story . . . All Aboard Trolley No. 1852 Through the midnight bowels of New York City, the trolley travels. Admitting only a special sort of passenger, and taking them to a very select destination . . . The 1852 Club is a bordello unlike any other. Its women are the most beautiful in the whole city and they will do anything. But there is something else going on at this sex club. In the back rooms monsters are performing vile acts on each other and doors to other dimensions are opening . . .

ROCK AND ROLL REFORM SCHOOL ZOMBIES
by BRYAN SMITH

Description:

If you’re a teenage metal head The Southern Illinois Music Reeducation Center is not the place you want to go. The center specializes in “de-metaling” – a treatment to cure teens of their metal loving, devil worshiping ways. A program that subjects its prisoners to sexual abuse, torture, and brain-washing.

But tonight things get much worse. Tonight the flesh-eating zombies come . . .
