Exactly The Wrong Things
David J. Schow (The Crow) has called Joseph M. Monks "one of the godfathers of splatterpunk." Candace Nola just won what? A Splatterpunk Award for her anthology, Baker's Dozen.

It's got enough gross-out goods for Edward Lee to have supplied the opening line from The Bighead to kick off each of the three tales, Christine Morgan supplying a challenge line, and Joe's happy to put the Feel Ya in necropedocopronepiophilia. This is a true, '80s-style throwback to the days when you'd order a chapbook from the back of Rolling Stone and been put on a govt watch list.
