"Hardcore horror that ranges from the socially relevant to the scatologically repulsive—the shock here is like 'The Scream' made flesh." — Mort Castle, editor of On Writing Horror: A Handbook by the Horror Writers Association
"In Zippered Flesh 3, Editor Weldon Burge has done a masterful job of combining work from well-known masters like Jack Ketchum and Graham Masterton with newer writers. But it is the original work by newcomers like L.L. Soares and Meghan Acuri that stands out for me. ... Highly recommended." — Gene O'Neill, author of The Hitchhiking Effect: A Retrospective Collection
"'Closer by Charles Colyott is a wonderfully poignant and romantic story. ... 'Going Green' by Christine Morgan is so original, timely, and well-written it deserves special mention. ...

A veritable treasure trove of short fiction lies within these pages, encompassing a wide variety of styles and genres. From science fiction to humor, mystery to horror: Heart of Farkness has it all.
In Heart of Farkness you will come face-to-face with the apocalypse, ghosts, space ships, a beer fountain, and even critters the likes of which you've never encountered before!
Truly, Heart of Farkness is a feast for the imagination, and it's all for a great cause: all proceeds from the sale of this anthology will benefit an excellent children's charity, even though they wouldn't give us permission to use their name on the cover, the bastards.
Oh, and did we mention that it's called Heart of Farkness? Fabulous title, isn't it? We think so, too. We thought of it ourselves. Enjoy!
Our editors have worked feverishly to collect the best short fiction of 2017 from the minds and imaginations of the posters at Fark, the online community where snark is king and wit reigns supreme.
Giants. Ghosts. Devious alien plots. Leftover bombs and bathing spider, magical goats and ominous manuscripts, we’ve collected them all into a volume for the ages.
And even better, all proceeds from the sale of this anthology will benefit an excellent children’s charity, even though for the second year running they’re not allowing us to use their name on the cover, the bastards.
So pull up a chair, pour a beer, and pet your favorite squirrel, because it’s time to go Through a Scanner Farkly.
Issue 69001 is the premiere issue, and features the following short stories:
"Sexualeyes" by MT Starkey is a brutal look at the future of product testing in a dystopian, cutthroat society. Very post-cyberpunk.
"Cyborgasm Stompfuck" by E. A. Black delves into the dark side of BDSM and gynoid love-hate relationships in the near future.
"Jizzemboweler" by Made in DNA is the epitome of sexpunk flash fiction; a murderous serial killer on the loose in the Floating World meets his match in a tongue-in-cheek romp.
"The Companion", by D.L. Warner, is a yaoi story of Micha, a convict sent to an off-world colony to be housekeeper and 'wife' to his new Owner, a big man named Marcus.
"Little Death" by James 'Grim' Desborough tells the story of an assassin who is quite literally in love with his gun.
"Night of the Mother" by Rick Moore will gouge your brain out with its gore-laced story of extra dimensional demons out for sweet human girls. Tres Toshio Maeda.
"Espionage Dolls" by Glynn Barrass joins his Cosplay Twins characters on an adventure to steal an alien lifeform from undead cosmonauts.
"The Wasters" by John Trevillian is a part of his acclaimed A-Men series of novels and short stories. In the future where the Earth is little more than a wasteland, everyone wants to get to Heaven, including Jack, the Nowhereman. And he'll do anything and anyone to get there.
Sexy gynoids, alien lifeforms, sex-starved twins, a sniper in love with his weapon, a demon invasion from another dimension... all this and more.
Hardcore sexual themes and situations. Adults only.
