Another bunch of flowers by the road by Nathan Robinson: a man with a great well of grief dreams up a machine to give him his much needed therapy; blood, loss and carnage. Beautifully written I could empathise with his all-consuming grief and anger, the Gore and splatter that followed was all so sad but felt calming from his PoV.
High fashion by Robert Essig: Jordan may have been a fashionista in one brief moment of time but now he is close to rock bottom. Trolling his old haunts he comes across his once vibrant muse. Slowly over weeks he gets his mojo back but with dire consequences. Predictable but so well written saving all the splat for the great gown reveal.
Beware! The! Beverage! By Jeff strand: The first line just kicks you! A new energy drink that has some peculiar side effects. As with most of JS stories there is a real tongue element that works really well in this anthology.
Eggbeater by Saul Bailey: Poor redneck Dale, a strange birth defect that leaves him fancying baking ingredients. Apart from being the weirdest, funniest story I can't say much without giving the surprise away. Totally loved this! My favourite in the anthology.
Please subscribe by Alan Cesare: a YouTube vlogger is scrutinized in this short story with a very intimate writing style, so intimate as to be unfomy. No splatter here but a real sense of voyeuristic intrusion.
Abstinence by Shane McKenzie: random bit of porn in this anthology, enjoyed it but was waiting for the shoe to drop.
The Androgyne by Brendan Vidito: Two intense lovers so close they are joined at the hip, but what happens when one wants to leave the other? Not sure about the bears or curator in this flash piece they seemed out of whack but the Splat n Gore was very visual.
Walters Last Canvas by Paul Brompton: A great twist on the Dorian Grey tale. Perfect character building made it easy to feel involved in the story. Great idea perfectly written.
Shame the bios at the back, means lots of flipping back n forth, other than that this antho’ is brilliant. Hopefully there will be more to come. Please put me on the mailing list!
After an intro from Deadite Press’ Jeff Burk things get off to a great start with Nat Robinson’s Mad Max: Fury Road-style story. It plunges us into an armoured vehicle piloted by a man at the end of the line. Robinson’s character has lost everything and has created a wheeled beast to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting public. Brutal, original and engaging, a great start to the anthology. Robert Essig is up next, a writer who I’ve come across in a few different anthologies and magazines. His story ‘High Fashion’ didn’t do a lot for me at all I’m afraid. By very early on in the tale I knew where it was going and it was a bit of a downer after a strong start. Similarly with Jeff Strand, ‘Beware of the Beverage’ is a typically bonkers Strand tale about an energy drink that contains Martian blood! It’s short and sharp but a bit too silly, even for Strand.
‘Eggbeater’ was just….errr, well, errr, out there. I quite liked it in a weird kind of way and then we had Adam Cesare’s entry which was really good. A very Cesare-style story about people’s addictions to social media platforms, in this case YouTube. Great story, even greater ending. Elsewhere, Shane McKenzie delivers a sexed up tale which was also very cool but it was Brenden Vidito who came up with a doozy of a story that for me truly encapsulates the Splatterpunk feel. Body horror, sex, weirdness, great story! My favourite in the collection. The final tale by Paul Shrimpton was also top-notch. If you can imagine a Splatterpunk version of Oscar Wilde’s classic tale ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ then you will be some way in understanding what this gory tale is about. A great way to finish things off.
A couple of stories didn’t quite float my boat, but there were some crackers in here to balance things out. It is a little on the short side for an anthology if I’m being honest but it’s a gruesome and entertaining way to kill a couple of hours for sure. This anthology just about sneaks 4 stars because when it’s good, it’s very good.
