Description

"Ghastly." "Bloodthirsty." "Transgressive." "Over-the-top violence and sexual deviation." So said the reviews of UNSPLATTERPUNK!, the first official collection in the unsplatterpunk subgenre.

Now, seven goreslingers and propriety defilers have grossed up their game to deliver UNSPLATTERPUNK! 2. True to the unsplatterpunk subgenre, these stories deliver a moral message while shocking or repulsing the reader. The collection includes a foreword by criminologist, philosopher and aesthetic commentator Rafe McGregor.

Returning contributor Drew Tapley kicks off the awfulness on an impressively juvenile note with the anthology's most straightforward story. In "First Kiss", a high school student deals with an expulsive situation with as much stoicism as Conan the Barbarian... maybe "Barfbarian" is more relevant. Trophy hunting is Triffooper Saxelbax's target as his protagonist, a designer of controversial augmented reality games, takes on the corporate obsession with teamwork in "The Villainy of Solitude". Hugh Alsin's satirical piece "Convention Hitler!" explores intolerance run amok when the story's namesake attends a British horror convention. In "The Music of Zeddy Graves", Stephen Theaker brings his planet-hopping duo of Rolnikov and Pelney to Melodia, whose inhabitants participate in an endless music festival, and whose main attraction goes to gruesome extremes to achieve her compositions. Douglas J. Ogurek's "Gunkectomy" alternates between an embittered architect/author and a husband hunter who finds commercial and social value in her earwax. "The Tapestry of Roubaix" by Howard Phillips seems to come off the shelf of a nineteenth century library, until it reveals what the protagonist does in his washbasin. M.S. Swift, another returning contributor, closes out the collection with "The Bones of Old England", an extravaganza of mania-induced carnage.

Delve deep into the cesspool that is UNSPLATTERPUNK! 2, and remember - sometimes to learn a lesson, you might have to get dirty.
