"... the book works... it will
shock, disturb and amuse you."
M J Simpson, SFX magazine #63
"... thankfully, [the]
editor has an eye for a good story and provides plenty of variety."
Tennent, Zene #2
"Splatterpunk is alive... take
this volume in small, non-fatal doses."
Paul di Filippo, Asimov's Magazine
"...a collection of some of
the most twisted horror short stories... totally addictive [and] fabulous!"
Lesley Mazey, eternalnight.co.uk
"In this publication,
there are a couple [of stories] that shine. Some of the pieces were

It deserves a showing just for the fact that out of all the really
bad short stories there is bound to be one that's an uncut diamond."
