Stories in this collection were of generally good uality andnjoyable to read However this collection definitely lost the over the top right on the brink dgy feel of the first Splatterpunks collection Sure it has its share of necrophilia gratuitous gore usw but it just didn t do it for me It s of necrophilia gratuitous gore usw but it just didn t do it for me It s the read if you can pick it up cheap but don t xpect it to live up to the first collection Some people think disgusting or plain weird uals horrific If that it to live up to the first collection Some people think disgusting or plain weird uals horrific If that the case any halfway talented writer could write horror stories and this is what has happened in this collection for Hit or miss In general the stories are technically good However many of them are also badly dated The fact that trans bodies were Last Chance Bride ever considered appropriate fodder for body horror says a lot about how far we ve come but aside from that throwing a trans woman into a story and leering over her body anxiety just feltcheap Use of kink for shock a couple times contributed to this feeling These authors were trying HARD to make it stick Sometimes I felt like I was reading a horror version of The Aristocrats If you re going to construct horror construct it the Barker and Petoud stories were goodxamples of the genre and Petoud was as gory as you could possibly want but the gore had a purpose you know And what is up with horror writers leaning on lesbian relationships I swear the book had ight purpose you know And what is up with horror writers leaning on lesbian relationships I swear the book had ight ten incidents of girl lovin and precisely zero of boy lovin Aside from general use of male homosexuality for shock value in For You The Living It s not just this book and I still see it in modern works but the phenomenon really stuck out here and it made me wonder once again about the relationship of the ueer community to horror and how that relationship has Lawman Lover (Outlaws, evolved There s probably a doctoral thesis in there somewhere but I ll leave it for someone with coffee and less time You re welcomeMoments where I was truly viscerally disturbed by these stories were fairly rare considering It s hard to say if that was a reflection on their uality or the fact that they were tapping into a zeitgeist that is twenty years gone The Human Centipede and Saw have ruined us apparently Alas to be so jaded and yet to have paid three bucks for this book Often a bit much I guess I prefer my horror with aesthetic style and less abuse some of the stories weren t bad though some good authors featured I probably would have liked the book as a whole better if theditor weren t so keen on defining and validating the term splatterpunk at City Girl in Training every given opportunity Another reviewer mentioned that theditor did a lot of spewing his liberal claptrap around but I didn t read any of the notes or the in.

Troduction only the stories so I couldn t tell you about that I have mixed feelings about this book Splatterpunk is kind of hit or miss for me I like scary intense shocking stuff but I prefer it to have some substance and originality Some fo these stories did some didn t I liked For You the Living a zombie story with the twist that the virus affects veryone slightly differently but
