Just in time for your Halloween horror movie marathons, I did a write-up at BizarroCentral on my favorite horror movies. Check it out!
Today I begin the 1,000 mile drive from Portland, OR to Las Vegas, NV for KillerCon. The convention is going to be amazing! People from Eraserhead/Deadite Press attending include Rose O’Keefe, Carlton Mellick III, Edward Lee, Wrath James White, John Skipp, Robert Devereaux, Ryan Harding, Adam Pepper, and myself. It’s going to be a fucking party! You should come!
I will be hosting the annual Saturday night Gross-Out Contest. There are still spots available to compete – just send an email to DeaditePress at gmail dot com. Deadite Press will then be hosting an after-party with special Deadite-themed cocktails!
You can follow my trip and live reports from KillerCon here:
The sequel to one of the most popular zombie novels of all time in a new, uncut, author’s preferred edition!
In this sequel to THE RISING, cities are overrun with legions of the undead, intent on destroying what’s left of the living. Trapped inside a fortified skyscraper, a handful of survivors prepare to make their last stand against an unstoppable, merciless enemy. With every hour their chances diminish and their numbers dwindle, while the ranks of the dead continue to rise. Because sooner or later, everything dies. And then it comes back, ready to kill.
Deadite Press is proud to present this uncut, Author’s Preferred Edition of Brian Keene’s seminal CITY OF THE DEAD
Demetrius breeds vicious dogs for drug-dealers and dog-fighters. But one dog came out very wrong.The hideous thing that clawed its way from its mother’s womb was like no dog Demetrious had ever seen. It was all appetite and aggression, an abomination from the darkest bowels of hell.
-Jack Ketchum, author of The Girl Next Door and The Offspring
Improve your life through nonstop sex and violence!
Gary is a fucking loser. He spends his days jerking off to hentai and fantasizing about his ideal life. One day while sitting in his hidden spot in the woods, he encounters the perfect girl. She is his ultimate fantasy. The only problem – she isn’t human. She’s an otherworldly creature who feeds on acts of sex and violence. Lots and lots of violence…and she is a complete glutton for it.
Fat Off Sex and Violence is the most extreme work yet by one of the most exciting new voices in horror. Don’t try to resist, give in to your worst instincts. Welcome to Shane McKenzie’s world.
I was having a few conversations with friends recently about all the bands we’ve seen live over the years. I use to keep a list of every band I’ve seen but that got lost years ago. For fun I recently tried to remember all the bands I’ve seen live (excluding the hundreds of random local acts). If you care about such things you can find the very long list after the jump:
Let’s get things started:
Alright, now that we have that out of the way let’s get down to the news.
After a very quiet 2012, I’ve had a few releases in 2013. Here’s what’s out so far in case you missed something:
- Eraserhead Press released an awesome tribute to director David Lynch – IN HEAVEN EVERYTHING IS FINE: FICTION INSPIRED BY DAVID LYNCH. It includes my story HIPSTER HUNTER.
- Issue #8 of THE MAGAZINE OF BIZARRO FICTION includes my short piece THE MOST ACCOMPLISHED CRACKHEAD IN THE WORLD.
- HOUSE OF CATS was translated into Polish for the anthology BIZARRO BAZAR.
I’ve got a bunch of exciting projects coming up. These projects are all in the future and the future is uncertain so don’t ask me when they are coming out:
- A new short story I’VE SEEN ENOUGH HENTAI TO KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING will appear in issue #3 of IMPERIAL YOUTH REVIEW with an illustration by my long-time artistic collaborator Chrissy Horchheimer.
- Issue #4 of SPLATTERPUNK will feature a column I wrote titled, YOU SICK FUCK OR WHY I LOVE EXTREME HORROR.
- I’ve started the first draft of my next book, HOMOBOMB. Look for that hopefully very soon.
- I have several new short stories that are looking for homes or I’m waiting for the final “yes” on. With any luck you’ll be reading HOW I GOT A MY LITTLE PONY TATTOO and THE SATANIC LITTLE TOASTER somewhere soon.
Until later, I leave you with this:
If you’ve been wanting to read my short story HOUSE OF CATS in Polish, you’re in luck. Apparently it translates into DOM (Z) KOTÓW. There’s lots of other great authors like Cameron Pierce, Carlton Mellick III, Bradley Sands, and Edward Lee.
Check out the awesome cover with art by Ed Mironiuk. Click on the cover to grab a copy but you better hurry up, the printing will be extremely limited.
