Sea’s Sanger Series

Sanger Entertainment The Complete Series by Sea Caummisar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WARNING – Once you start this book, you won’t be able to stop until the last book is finished.
If you picked up this series before reading anything else from this author, Sanger Entertainment was born in the blood of Games The Complete Series Books 1-6. I was really excited about the idea of Sanger getting its own series, but I didn’t have a clue what it was going to be like. The reality of the final project exceeded my wildest imagination!
It has everything I wanted – the casino, the collection crews, the underground fighting, and videos, etc. But so much more, too! (Note to author: I absolutely LOVE the pharmacy, nice touch!) And since this is Sea Caummisar we’re talking about, it has all the blood, gore, and always inventive deaths that keep us coming back for more.
Beyond all that though…The story that continues throughout these books is outstanding! Together these guys – THOMAS, BRUNO, KURT, and MAX are like brothers, with PAULIE being the honorary, adopted little brother – they’ve grown Sanger into something untouchable. But when the wife and kids kind of family comes in to play, it’s not always so easy to balance. If it comes down to it, which family is more important?
It depends on who you ask.

More reviews on Goodreads

I’ll go over the stories individually at a later time, but it’s so hard to do! Sea Caummisar packs so much story into so few pages that I’m always feeling like I’m balancing on that very thin line between review, or spoiler.

Have you read this series already? Do you have a favorite? I like Kurt & Thomas the most, cuz Max lost his damn fool mind! But, then again, we can’t forget about Paulie… He may not be one of the four founding members, but he’s been here through thick and thin, and knows more secrets than the president should be privy to. It’s really hard to pick a favorite, innt? Gotta boogie for now, but say hey in the comments, let me know you’re still lurking!

Celebrating National Metal Day!

Heavy Metal & Horror – A Match Made For Screaming!

Celebrating National Metal Day by watching horror movies is easy. It’s FUN, but the hardest part will be deciding what movie to watch FIRST. If you’re in a state where you’re still strongly encouraged to stay self-isolated, picking up a book and getting lost in a blend of music & madness sounds much more appealing! But – what to read? Here are a few choices…


We’ll be celebrating doubly hard since The Dark Defender & I Joined Forces nine years ago today.

Joined Forces 11/11/11

If you don’t already have THE SCREAM by John Skipp & Craig Spector then this is the book you should pick up and start reading today. It’s HORROR. It’s SPLATTERPUNK. It’s ROCK AND ROLL.

Rock ‘n’ Roll. Hell. Two great tastes that taste great together. Long before Elvis gyrated on the Sullivan Show or the Beatles toiled the smoky red-light bars of Hamburg, music has been sowing the seeds of liberation. Or damnation. With each new generation the edge of rebellion pushed farther. Rhythms quickened. Volume increased. Lyrics coarsened. The rules continued to be broken, until it seemed that there were no rules at all.
And as waves of teens cranked it up and poured it on, parents built walls of accusation to explain their offspring’s seeming corruption. Sex and drugs, demon worship and violence are the effects. Music is the cause. Or so the self-styled guardians of morality would have us believe.
Meet The Scream. Just your average everyday mega-cult band. Their music is otherworldly. Their words are disturbing. Their message is unholy. Their fans are legion. And they’re not kidding. They’re killing. Themselves. Each other. Everyone. Their gospel screams from the lips of babes. Their backbeat has a body count. And their encore is just the warm-up act to madness beyond belief.
It emerged from a war-torn jungle, where insanity was just another word for survival. It arrived in America with an insatiable lust for power and the means to fulfill it. In the amplified roar of arena applause there beats the heart of absolute darkness
.


As your punk rock horror hostess in this event, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show you this ‘battle’ anthology!

• Thirteen Rounds. • Twenty Six Stories. • No Holds Barred.

Grab your guitars, turn the volume to eleven, and launch yourself into a world where heavy music rules over all!

Your teammates we will include 13 of these authors as you battle head to head for the Ultimate Title! David Owain Huges, Michelle Garza and Melissa Lawson – The Sisters of Slaughter, James H. Longmire, Dani Brown, Robert Holy, Andrew Freudenberg, Easel Pratt, Kitty Kane, Sebastian Crow, J.L. Lane, G.H. Finn, Jason Morton, Brian Barr, Michael Noe, Jim Richardson, Seth Moore, R.E. Lyons, Toneye Tyenot, William Bradley, John P. Collins Jr., Lucretia Stanhope, Brian Glossup, K. Trap Jones, Michael Fischer, and Jim Golforth.


I love the vibe happening right now, so the 3rd place tie between THE RITUAL by Adam Neville and SHOCK ROCK edited by Jeff Gelb has just been broken! ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO SLAY …

The stars of shock fiction know what metalheads & moralists, punksters & preachers have known all along. Rock and roll. With its hot licks and raw glitter, has a dark side too – where the party stops and the terror begins.

Put on your headphones. Open this electrifying book. Rock to the world of horror where martyred musical super-legends return from the dead at 120 decibels… where radio stations sponsor ghastly giveaways that no living soul could want … where other-earthly pirates bootleg not records, but human souls… where people are strange … and the devil rocks all night.

THE NEW SOUND OF HORROR comes from Stephen King, F. Paul Wilson, David J. Schow, Nancy A. Collins, Ronald Kelly, Don D’Ammassa, Graham Masterton, Paul Dale Anderson, Michael E. Garrett, Brian J. Hodge, R Patrick Gates, Rex Miller, Bill Mumy & Peter David,R Richard Christian Matheson, Michael Newton, Mark Verheiden, Ray Garton, John L. Byrne, Thomas Tessier, and John Shirley.

Feelin’ Witchy on Devil’s Night

Rating: 5 out of 5.

LIFE’S SHORT. LIVE A LITTLE!

Sabine

Sexy Sabine is definitely going to be THIS Witch’s Guilty Pleasure from now on! Laurell K. Hamilton never had me giggling like Regina Watts did in this book!
This is my very first time with Sabine, and I was falling in love with her as I listened (TTS) to her talk about different taboos, and society’s general disapproval of anything more than mere vanilla bean. Then… cable dog. Cable Dog took me by surprise, and then things really got fun!
I’m not going to spoil this book for anyone who hasn’t read it yet, but I can assure you that I’m about to dive into all things Sabine! Regina has a dark and twisted sense of humor that I can’t get enough of, and if flows out effortlessly through the character. Sometimes so subtly that it took a second for my brain shout ‘Wait! Turn that back… did she just, omg…’! She’s the type of character I know I’d be friends with IRL – part of my tribe.
And did I mention that this is Horrotica? Oh, yeah, I definitely noticed the ‘rotica ::winks:: Thankfully, this is a pretty quick read, and I didn’t get swept up into the throes of passion. This time.
(view spoiler)
There is so much to love here, in such a short story. But, it works – it doesn’t feel forced, or ‘packed’. (see what I did there? The next three days are gonna be full of ‘Thats what she said‘s, then probably a divorce.)
I’ll keep you posted through the next five books, but I can already say with 100% certainty that I’ll highly recommend this series.

So far, Regina Watts is proving her versatility as a writer, and I can’t wait to see what she’s done with BABYSITTER BLOODBATH!

So, where can you find THE WITCH’S GUILTY PLEASURE? It’s a secret! Shhh… I’m only teasing. But it is a secret edition of the Sabine series, for subscribers only. I got it when I signed up to Regina Watt’s newsletter after reading Feeling Dottie. You can find all the information on her official website.

Now, where can you find the Marquise d’Oregon?

KILLSTREME by Rayne Havok

Rating: 5 out of 5.

If you got a rando invitation from a company that produces snuff films, to appear in your very own [film], what would you do? Well, let break that down into two groups: are we the snuffer, or the snuffee? Assuming that it’s an invite to do some psycho shit with no repercussions, I bet a lot of people would jump at the chance, even if they won’t admit it.

The genius of snuff is not its existence but rather its universal appeal. While totally repugnant, it is still more enticing than the filthiest porn.”

Wrath James White

Well, that’s exactly what happened to Wesley, and it’s a wet dream come true! “Normal”, vanilla sex just doesn’t do it for him anymore. Besides, what if they see what he can do and offer him a contract?! (collective eye roll here for his ‘dude-bro’ way of thinking). He filled out his paperwork, and was on his way to an appointment that could potentially change his way of life forever!

And, did it ever!

Yes, this is extreme horror, and yes, it’s totally snuffalicious, but it was a fun read for me! It was way easier on my nerve than BOYS WILL BE BOYS, and I was left with a feeling of [sick] satisfaction🤘. We get a dash of the blackest of humor, and there’s a Girl Power vibe to it strong enough to almost call for an anthem.

Don’t go into this lightly just cuz I’m a psychopath – this is a gore drenched, blood splattered story, that very well might give you nightmares, especially the gentleman.

Buy on Amazon, and review it on Goodreads. Rayne Havok loves hearing what you think, so leave reviews, and reach out to her @ GoodreadsAmazon, and Twitter.

(*¹) I hate myself for this a little, but did this image appear in anyone elses head right then, it is it just me? Oh, just me then. K… ::whistling and walking away – not believing you for a second!::

Freckles the Clown by Justin Fulkerson

Rating: 5 out of 5.

As the 20th anniversary of their friendship approaches, Freckles the Clown wants to celebrate with Jim. But, Jim doesn’t like Freckles at all. He never considered Freckles to be his friend. As a matter of fact, Jim is terrified of the cannibal clown that forces him year after year to partake in his debauchery.

Determined to put an end to his living nightmare, Jim sets out to murder Freckles before he can kill again. But, Freckles has other plans for him. He’s just getting started.

Book Synopsis

There are times in your life that you need something and the universe provides it – whether you asked for it or not.

Freckles became a part of Jim’s life when he was just nine years old, and Jim fought it every step of the way. Freckles The Clown says he just wants to make things easier; he wants everyone to be

But Jim isn’t happy. Not by a longshot. How can he be when he looks back at every significant, life altering moment in his life, and he sees a psychotic, cannibalistic clown there?! A clown that mirrors his deepest, darkest inner demons. On their 20th anniversary things are going to change – Jim has been planning it for a long time. Freckles knows, too. And he’s ready.

Is that why you act like a child? Because you eat children?

– Jim

Then there is the sad, and tragic story of Franklin Gough. And, one more – about Suzi. Don’t get confused, there’s a lot going on, but the author has it wrapped together very well. Well, there might be a head-scratcher, but it’s all good. No spoiler moments, just know that you won’t be disappointed!

It’s darkly humorous, tragically sad, and scary enough to make you double check your locks. You’ll have this blurry image in your mind throughout – of a clown, looking into a mirror. Don’t you want to know who’s looking back?

Pick up FRECKLES THE CLOWN on Amazon, then head over to Goodreads to share your thoughts. Connect with Justin Fulkerson on his website, @justinfulkerson on Twitter, Goodreads, and his Amazon Author Page.

What Is Acrotomophilia?

The Dictionary According To Shadow Girl defines it as…

a·crot·o·mo·phil·i·a

noun¹: The deriving of sexual gratification from fantasies or acts involving an amputee.

noun²: sexual self gratification while reading Acrotomophilia Maniac by Sea Caummisar, or delayed self gratification from the antici… (oh, you know this!) …pation for…

Acrotomophilia Maniac 2 – coming March 27th, 2021.

Origin of acrotomophilia: Greek akrotomos cut off, sawed off  (from akros at the farthest end, extreme ; see acro- . ) ( tomos a cutting ; see tome. ) -philia

Acrotomophilia Maniac 2 is the continued story of Willard, who (in book 1) found himself more attracted to his wife after she was disfigured in a horrific car accident.

Willard’s actions have landed him a residence in a mental institution for the criminally insane.
The fact that he doesn’t have freedom or weapons doesn’t mean that he can’t live out a few more of his sexual fantasies…

WARNING: This is for a mature audience.
DISTURBING SCENES OF EXTREME VIOLENCE

You can purchase the series on Amazon, or order/pre-order individually – Acrotomophilia Maniac here, and Acrotomophilia Maniac 2 here.

Aron Beauregard’s ‘Scary Bastard’ Got a Facelift!

I love this picture thingy, and don’t care what it’s intended use is!

– Some New Content As Well –

When I picked up TRY THE NEW CANDY and saw the added bonus of the illustrations I knew I’d found something special. Now I look forward to the illustrations almost as much as new stories – almost. Both covers are cool, but who doesn’t love an unattached head?! The slick ass new cover is just in time for this Halloween slasher, too! It may not stick around, so you should make sure you own both… It’s money in the bank – one will be a collectors item.

You’ve read it, right? If I heard a ‘no’ out there somewhere, it’s the perfect time to fix that faux pas. Scary Bastard expands on one of the SSs in Try The New Candy. The book just celebrated it’s first birthday, and it grew two whole chapters for it’s b-day! Now the slick ass cover is on ‘The Author’s Preferred Edition‘ 😉 What better time than a brisk October night to read a blood drenched tale that takes place on Halloween, and is packed with more craziness than a normal person could handle?! NEVER! There’ll never be a better time than now! So… stop trying to pretend you’re normal, and GO GET SCARY BASTARD!

What do a child killer, a hopeful special effects artist, a duo of budding teen psychopaths, a student screwing teacher and a mutated maniac with his lower jaw missing have in common? They’re all out this Halloween. How will their paths cross? Who’s killing who? Can anyone survive the bloodbath or are they all destined to drown in a pool of warm red? This slasher nightmare gives you a seat beside the killer but don’t get too comfortable, there’s a Scary Bastard on the loose… (This book includes 9 horrifying illustrations to guide you through the terror!)

Stronger Than Hate by Robert Essig

Francine watches, and she listens to them from below. TRAPPED. She is hurt, and imprisoned at the bottom of a sinkhole that opened up in her precious garden while they torment her.

Familiar faces look down upon her—the worst students she ever had the displeasure of teaching before she retired from the local high school. They snicker as money changes hands. They spit on her. Throw things at her.

And there’s no way in hell they’re going to get help.

But someone else knows about Francine’s predicament. Her neighbor Greg, another former student. The one whose peers called him Lazy Eye. The one who always looked to be accepted even at the expense of Francine’s safety. Does he have it in his heart to do the right thing, to come to his senses and call the police?

At the mercy of deviants, Francine Mosely must harness her inner strength to survive their torments, but how much can she take? Through guidance from the memory of her late husband she banishes herself from what is happening, retreating to her most precious memories, but what happens when the horrors around her infiltrate her mind? How much can she take before breaking down? Is Francine Mosely STRONGER THAN HATE?

Angel on my right shoulder… “Ahh, revenge, but at what cost?” Devil on my left shoulder leans over and whispers in my ear… “Forty bucks, and ¼ bag of weed. Me… “I’M THINKING!”

SG in STRONGER THAN HATE, by Robert Essig

It’s been a while since I’ve read human depravity at this level!
The story worked – the bully and the bullied, the mentality that allowed this to go on for so long, the drugs, (it had to have the drugs), and how so many kept a secret – it’s all there, working together, and believable. Till the very ending bit
and that’s the reason I only gave 4 stars instead of 5. Because of ‘The Dark Ones‘.

WARNING

*Not really – but possible spoilers ahead*
It’s only my personal opinion, others may completely disagree. ‘The Dark Ones’ took the story somewhere that I didn’t think was needed. As a coping mechanism – yes. But, the bit at the end was something I think the story could have done without.

How to connect with the author: Find him on his blog Robert Essig’s Confusions, Delusions, and Formidable Impressions, Facebook, follow @Robert_Essig on Twitter, Amazon, and Goodreads.
