He has been around since the 80's. In the horror community, especiallly the splatterpunk and bizarro genres, he is very well known. He has a reputation as an author who pushes every envelope and with titles like Santa Steps Out, Santa Claus Conquers the Homophobes, and Baby's First Book of Seriously Fucked-Up Shit I really don't doubt that claim. This will be my first read of his so I can't personally vouch for him though.

Here's a link to a sight for Deadite Press who specializes in splatterpunk: http://deaditepress.com/

It's all retail but I thought you would enjoy the cover art of some of them.

I know that Brian Keene, Bryan Smith, John Skipp, Ed Lee, Wrath James White, Carlton Mellick III, and J.F. Gonzalez are all really good. Then there is the author David Brockie who is most well known as Oderus Urungus, and is the lead singer of GWAR.

I should finish it up today but so far my assessment is that It's more a crime story than anything else, sort of an odd and eerie "day in the life" of an unsettled and unsettling shadow-crawler of a man. Now, it definitely has a supernatural element to it though and there were parts that were absolutely unsettling and creepy. I would give it a 4 out of 5 stars.

i dont get how he has got away with it soo far,his names cris,edmund went to school with him,his granny didnt reckonise his voice(he put on a different voice..but she seems really good at sensing every thing else)



edit: what was that about at the very end? id give it 5/10 pretty average.
