DON'T GET ANY ON YOU. When Comet Press put out the call for submissions for STIFF THINGS we said we were ready to ratchet up the visceral intensity with hardcore stories that penetrate new depths of psychosxual horror. But we weren't as ready as we thought we were for the extreme stuff that came flooding in on waves of blood and other bodily fluids we won't mention here. Not that we're complaining. In other words, we got what we wished for...and more. The stories themselves dictated a new title. And so here is the TOC for this upcoming release with a more apt title: Stiff Things: The Splatterp*rn Anthology

”...glutted with graphic scenes of torture, dismemberment, evisceration...” — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY YEAR'S BEST HARDCORE HORROR VOLUME 2.
Red Room Press is extremely proud to present its second annual anthology featuring this year's hardcore corps of authors with the best extreme horror fiction of 2016 that breaks boundaries and trashes taboos. Selected from indie publishers and magazines such as Weirdpunk Books, Necro Publications, Splatterpunk Zine, Corner Bar Magazine, Carrion Blue and Raw Dog Screaming Press, these stories represent the state of the art of extreme horror fiction. Whether extreme in theme or with gore galore, these disturbing tales will be hard to forget even though you may wish you could. Yes, there will be blood. Lots of it. Gore galore and plenty of the gushy stuff. But you'll also find tales less graphic but with hardcore attitudes, transgressive stories you're not sure you should be reading, stories showing you things you shouldn't see. Visceral fiction.
This year's best hardcore fiction features work by Michael A. Arnzen, Jasper Bark, Christa Carmen, Marvin Brown, Adam Cesare, Matthew Chabin, Jose Cruz, Andrew Darlington, Paolo Di Orazio, Stefanie Elrick, William Grabowski, Sarah L.

Come along for the ride if you dare, as Rejected for Content 4 takes you down roads with only one true destination awaiting at the end. Ride actual roads with damaged, deranged souls, and travel along the highways if the mind where psychosis, darkness, and the depths of brutality and perversion dwell.
