Trailer É Splatterpunks II: Over the Edge PDF by Ç Paul M. Sammon Overall review Excellent, gory horror anthology Of course, in a work featuring twenty eight stories, there are bound to be a few stories I don t care for, but that is due to personal preferences regarding writing tenses, overwriting and other relatively minor issues If you re a horror gore fan, get this collection.
Standout stories 1 Accident d Amour Wildy Petoud Excellent, witty, cut to it tale about a woman s literally sick vengeance against an ex lover Memorable, vivid.
2 Impermanent Mercies Kathe Koja A callous photographer Ellis witnesses an accident involving a little boy Andy and his unlucky dog True Bizarre, disturbing for animal lovers and excellent work.
3 One Flesh A Cautionary Tale Robert Devereaux Multi layered, horrific and laugh out loud clever story about the conjoined reincarnation of a son and father and all the tragedies that stem from it Some people think disgusting or plain weird equals horrific If that s the case, any halfway talented writer could write horror stories, and this is what has happened in this collection, for the most part Some stories are enjoyable, others are forgettable.
The worst part about the book though is editor Paul M Sammon s shrill histrionics over female empowerment and such claptrap Now, I am not speaking of someone who makes a strong expression of his desire for women s equality in the book s introduction No Paul M Sammon is the kind of liberal nutcase who is out for blood, spewing his ugly hatred and filth all over the pages.
In his personal acknowledgments, refers to Reagan, Bush, Sr.
, Pat Buchanan among others as criminals here on Hit or miss In general, the stories are technically good However, many of them are also badly dated The fact that trans bodies were 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 good examples 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 eight to ten incidents of girl lovin and precisely z Beginning a re read of the horror authors I read back in High School Post College An average of 3 stars for this collection Some good ones, but a lot that just hit the trying to be shocking that you can get from horror The better stories don t feel so early 90s But a good start Splatterpunks I and the two Book of the Dead anthologies, andsingle author books.

Stories in this collection were of generally good quality and enjoyable to read However, this collection definitely lost the over the top, right on the brink, edgy 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 worth the read if you can pick it up cheap, but don t expect it to live up to the first collection.
Another reviewer mentioned that the editor did a lot of spewing his liberal claptrap around, but I didn t read any of the notes or the introduction, 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 everyone slightly differently but they all become crazed sexually in one way or another All Flesh is Clay was interesting, about a man who sculpts people s bodies after they did and brings them back to life Heels was good, about a serial killer who is a foot fetishist and how he meets his fate Lacunae was a cautionary tale of a transgender woman wh Reach Beyond The Limits Of Convention And Rationality And Into The Darkest Corners Of The Human Soul In This New Volume Of Taboo Shattering Short FictionReviewers Called Splatterpunks Extreme Horror A Forceful Anthology Cum Manifesto Of Splatterpunk That Makes A Strong Case For Splatterpunk As Valuable, Morally Confrontational Art An Authoritative And Intelligent Collection For Horror Fans Willing To Go All The Way Kirkus Reviews And A Work Of Dangerous Visions Booklist Splatterpunks II Over The Edge Continues In The Groundbreaking Tradition Of The First Volume By Featuring Acknowledged Masters Of The Bizarre Clive Barker, Martin Amis, And Brian Hodge Established Women Writers Kathe Koja And Poppy Z Brite Underground Favorites And Bram Stoker Award Winners Nancy Holder, Melanie Tem, And Elizabeth Massie Steve Rasnic Tem And Michael Ryan Zimmerman Help Round Out This Second Daring CollectionProvacative, Shocking, And Frightening, As Well As Literate, Intelligent, And Revolutionsary, Splatterpunks II Over The Edge Promises To Open Your Eyes To A New, And Perhaps Dangerous, Way Of Looking At The World This book was ok Certainly nothing to write home about There were some interviews other essays that I don t feel really went with the stories They may have been ok withof the same but they didn t work mixed in with the fiction I bought it used and certainly don t feel an overwhelming need to go out find the first one Probably the best thing about it was it was a pretty fast read.
Often a bit much I guess I prefer my horror withaesthetic 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 the editor weren t so keen on defining and validating the term splatterpunk at every given opportunity.
Most excellent anthology, with many remarkable authors who surprise us by writing stories in this genre I think this edition is as good or better than the first Splatterpunks Which is rare and somewhat unusual A nice surprise.
