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.
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!

THE NEW APP FROM GODLESS HORRORS!
If you’re reading this, then you need this app in your life. It’s everything we love about our community, and more!! As soon as you open it – FREE BOOKS! You don’t have to seek them out, they’re front & center. You start to look around and you realize that these are books you WANT, and authors you already know, and enjoy. Each day I see another author writing something exclusive, and letting it go for next to nothing. A couple author’s have pulled their books from Amazon completely, going Godless all the way. The authors are reading and supporting each other – it’s all very cool.
Underground + Indie Horror
Welcome to the Godless app!
Godless is THE underground + indie horror ebook + audio book store that amplifies the voices of self-publish/independent authors + publishers.
At Godless, you can get exclusive horror that you can’t get ANYWHERE else. You can also get exclusive, original, monthly series that lean more toward serialized television shows.
If you’re looking for extreme horror, splatterpunk, bizarro horror, ghost stories, zombie tales, or anything that explores the dark side of fiction… look no further.
Venture outside of the mainstream and embrace the darkness!
There is nothing like Godless and there is no easier way to get into indie horror than with the Godless app!
Check out what one of the authors on the Godless platform has to say, (it should be printed on the app’s description!)
So, is there anything that I forgot to mention? Questions? Comments? (Didja miss me?) Was the whole thing not bloody enough? Just give me a minute! Check back and I’ll get you a peek at some of the content, share my Godless wishlist, and tell you what I’ve already finished! Leave your anythings in the comments and I’ll be back to check your math. Until next time sweeties…
Or, I guess what I really mean is WHO are you reading? It’s INTERNAL WOMAN’S DAY, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Women are killin’ it in extreme horror these days, too! They’ve always been there, but they’ve been gaining ground and shaking things up in the Boy’s Club. I don’t think there’s an official count anywhere, but if there was, I’d bet that the winner’s of the 2020 SplatterDome¹ wore heels.
I’m going to be celebrating #IWD2021 by reading one of BBB’s favorite authors, while wearing my favorite pair of CFM pumps, and red lipstick. Sam West, aka Collette Metcalf, just published Langdon Manor: An Extreme Horror Novella in January, and has Tales From The Edge Of The Sea: An Extreme Horror Collection Within A Wraparound Story (available for pre-order), being published this week! (fingers crossed that it’s all based in Broadgate!!! I’m so excited!!!) Sam West has been a name synonymous with splatterpunk for the better part of a decade (you go, Glen Coco!), but she’s also publishing psychological thrillers under the name Collette Heather! KICKING ASS AND TAKING NAMES!There is so much I could say about paving the way, and opening doors, but I’ll save it for another Coffee Talk and just say that she deserves to be read on IWD! (besides if I wait any longer to read this I might die! Or develop a tick of some kind…)
A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. So let’s all choose to challenge. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
Rayne Havok is another name you should recognize. KILLSTREME is the perfect Splatterpunk IWD read, the Girl Power / Sisterhood vibe is strong, and you might feel a little empowered after reading it. Or, you might puke. Either way…
If you’re a regular here, Sea Caummisar’s name should sound very familiar. I don’t know if it was luck, or fate, but I stumbled upon her very first book when it was still the only book, and we’ve been buds ever since. I’m a few reviews behind though, and need to remedy that shit with a quickness!! I just finished Dr. Circumcision, Quack MD, and that was… uncomfortable, to say the very least. Plus, I can’t wait till you hear about My #2 Fan 😱, (available to pre-order now!), and the Sanger Entertainment series is turning out to be a much more than I ever dreamed of!! I’m still astonished at how fast and hard she hit the scene, and made a name for herself. She shows no signs of slowing down any time soon, either. A Splatterpunk IWD could not be had without her – grab a book and celebrate!
There are so many women in Extreme Horror / Splatterpunk these days, so this could be the perfect excuse for you to read someone new. Check out someone above if you haven’t already, or try (in no particular order) Nikki Noir, Monica O’Rourke, DJ Doyle, Allisha McAdoo, Sian Rosé, Christine Morgan, … Ok, I do have things to get done today, and a pantsless Zoom appointment at 3:00. But these should get you started! (If I have brain constipation, and forgot to mention you, please don’t take it personally! I either saved your name for Women In Not So Extreme Horror, another sub-genre like Horrotica, you don’t identity as female anymore, or simply just forgot with no malicious intent. Still friends?)
✒️ AUTHOR CONNECTION 🖋️
I’m still working on the Author Connect pages… waaayy more involved than my initial thoughts, but turning out beautiful so far. Until the official Author Connection goes live, were posting old school …
Sam West / Collette Metcalf: Facebook, Amazon, Goodreads, as Collette Heather on Amazon. You can email her here.
¹No matter how badly I wish it WAS a thing, the SplatterDome is sadly not a thing. It COULD BE, though! Who wants to publish the Girls vs. Boys anthology?! K. Trapp Jones, this has your name all over it! (I’d just like my name in small print in the book somewhere… I’m kidding!! But this idea DOES kick ass in stilleto heels 👠 I’m going to send a copy of this to The Splatter Club and see if anyone else agrees!)
Billy Silver, a low-life, self-downtrodden junkie, needs some cash to get his next fix. After getting kicked out of his own band, Shit Fist, losing his girlfriend, and left with no other options, he decides to sell his flesh to the ink of a needle at a newly opening tattoo shop.The mysterious artist, Talia, tattoos a cryptic design he’s never seen. Shortly after getting inked, compulsions burn underneath his skin. His need to satisfy a newly arisen addiction to self-mutilation begins a descent into darker places than his miserable life never dared go. Eventually, violence against himself is no longer enough to satisfy his cravings. The urge to commit the grotesque brings his brutal tendencies to others… To strangers, to acquaintances, to his prostitute ex-girlfriend…When Billy finds out his band replaced him, with a new vocalist singing his lyrics on stage, Billy’s desires reach their peak, and Talia, behind the fire of his rage, bears witness to all.
Synopsis / Amazon Product Description
I don’t know if I would have found this book if I wasn’t in the Splatterpunk FB group, and it certainly helped that the author is there, too. But, I must say, those guys DO know their horror, and have damn fine taste, so… it would have been mentioned. Either way, now I need to make sure you never wonder the same thing – you need to check out Daniel Volpe’s latest story ‘Billy Silver‘!
The story is dark, it’s gritty, and I kinda wanted to wash my hands when it was over. It’s the perfect backdrop for the characters you’re about to meet. You feel the loneliness, the abandonment, the despair… Hell, you almost feel the needle go into your arm! Perfect time to add a trigger warning, wouldn’t ya say? There is some intense addiction horror here, so blahbidy blahbidy trigger warning.
We interrupt this review with breaking news…I just learned that I’m not allowed to use Addiction Horror as a category. I like to make sure I save my drafts every couple minutes, and the latest draft would not save. “You are not allowed to assign those perimeters”… WTF? I back tracked and tested, and it’s those two words next to each other. Well. Alright. Apologies to Mark Mathews, I guess. This is weird, I used the term with Aron Beauregard recently with no trouble. This must be a new thing. I must research! (I can still say ‘fuck’, so I won’t go into panic mode just yet.) (and p.s., I love how this post’s tags read like ‘101 Reasons To Read This Book!’ ) Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming –
Where were we? So, after a particularly shitty night, Billy wakes up and those all too familiar feelings start crawling in… he needs to score, and soon. This time his hustle is… selling his skin! Lol, no! Not like that! He goes to a new tattoo shop that is about to open, and he is going to let an artist work on him so she can refresh her skills before the shop opens for business. (I’d do for a hundred bucks.) He can feel a difference in his body almost immediately. He’s essentially traded one addiction for another, but this new desire isn’t like any drug he’s ever done before. He doesn’t want the high. He wants pain. When he finally gets home and gives into the urges that overtake him, self-mutilation doesn’t even come close to describing the things he’s doing! He just fucking brutalizes his self, (loves it), but the violence and depravity can’t satiate the dark urges. He needs more – so he goes out and gets it!!
It’s 🎉 time for another warning! Yay! Some animal violence is hinted at in here, but it’s not bad. I don’t think it’s much to worry about, but blahbidy blahbidy trigger warning.
This is a great book, it’s different – no cookie cutter, or assembly line horror here. I love it! I’m excited to go pick up SCARED OF THEDARK, and BITS OF BONE. All three books are available on KU, so you can read for free if you’re a subscriber.
2020 may have been a dumpster fire of a year in every other aspect, but we’ve definitely gotten some great books to read! Extreme Horror has finally gotten some recognition. Books by new EH authors are flying off the shelves, and our favorite EH authors continue to disturb and terrify us in exciting new ways. I’m proud to be a member of this community, in good company with some truly outstanding people!
What book has made a definite impression on you this year? Talk to me! Post your answers, and whatever else you’d like, in the comments. Until next time – stay healthy, happy, and horrifying 👹
She leaves a trail of brutal pornographic perversion in her wake. Add mind-blowing gore fans of extreme horror and Splatterpunk will love! Nothing will be left to the imagination in this utterly disturbing and sickening series. Maggot Girl is definitely not the girl next door, unless you live next door to a psychopathic nymphomaniac fromHell!
Get your copy of MAGGOT GIRL on Amazon, and don’t forget to leave a review, (just a couple words helps more than you realize). It’s not on Goodreads yet, but my bet is that it will be posted by the end of the day.
I’ll edit in an author bio ASAP – Otis Bateman is a name you won’t soon forget!
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? *¹ 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.
WARNING:Boys Will Be Boys is Extreme Horror, and NOT for the squeamish, the easily offended, or those with large sticks up their butts. It gets graphic, and may trigger things long buried. Here’s your second WARNING.
‘Bri goes hiking with her friends, determined to make fun memories before her and her friends are off to college.’
‘Everett and his friends are making their own memories; ones the girls aren’t going to want to be a part of. The boys forcefully include them anyway.’
I have to say that this was a hard book to read. I had a moment of wanting to beat my Kindle against the closest, and hardest thing possible – while swear-screaming, and ugly-crying. A couple hours of reading exhausted me.
I do love Rayne’s writing style. The only way I know to describe it is he said / she said. Every other chapter. You get to read the POV from both sides – in this book it’s boy/girl, rapist/victim, murderer/dead girl. She writes it all, every dirty joke/every scratch left. All in excruciating detail…
“We’re doing this. Here is the place and now, is the time.”
Rayne doesn’t fuck around with foreplay, that’s for sure. This time she kinda slammed it in and broke it off. After about the first 10% of the book, there are three pages of happiness. How do things get fucked-up so fast?! I’m talking IRL, too, because this story is just that. It could. It might. Maybe it has. In just a matter of moments you can go from the top of the world to the deepest pits of Hell. Un-livable. Un-repairable. Rayne writes so well, and so passionately. I had to fight off a panic attack when shit got REAL real. I was there, on that mountain, and it was tragic.
But, if you DO survive, then what? What’s next? If it’s anything near what happens in this book – listen close, and hear me loud and clear – no-fucking-thank-you. This ending… Omg, no spoilers.
Note to author: I’m yelling out titles of revenge horror movies, and begging for a do over so my guts feel better. GIRLS WILL BE GIRLSneeds to be your literary I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Not necessarily a sequel, but, I’d love to see these boys try it again inside of a new cover… Especially after reading that last line!
If you haven’t read this one yet, mind the trigger warnings, but hurry and go get it!! I need to discuss!! While I wait for you, I have Killstreme downloaded, and can’t wait to start reading.
Buy BOYS WILL BE BOYS on Amazon, then leave your 5 star review on Goodreads,

The Author & The Reviewer
Small businesses around the globe are going belly-up. In the Cornish seaside town of Treeve, Cat’s husband, Brian Oxley, is on the brink of losing everything. Eight pubs, five restaurants, and six pasty shops worth of everything…
When a potential, financial bailout comes in the form of lottery winner Ewan Davies, it is the answer to all of Brian’s prayers. The creepy, ex-furniture restorer makes Brian an offer he can’t refuse.
His offer is twenty million.
And the price of Brian’s salvation?
Never in her wildest imaginings, could Cat imagine what lies in store for her at the millionaire’s mansion.
She will never look at a piece of furniture in the same way again…
The synopsis is very descriptive, so you know the beginning of the story. What you don’t know is ‘Why’. Not ‘why did Brian sell her’, cuz he’s a piece of shit, (besides, times are hard, ya know?). Not ‘why didn’t her side-piece try to help her‘, cuz he was a pussy all along. The WHY you need to be asking is WHY does Ewan want to buy her? ‘INDECENT PROPOSAL‘ was ‘One million dollars for one night with your wife’ – but Ewan is paying twenty mil!
Ewan must live in Broadgate. This kind of shit couldn’t happen anywhere else in the world!
I first read this within days of it’s release. At a certain point if I’d had Collette’s number I would have called, but I had to stop reading so I could at least e-mail her. I think I only said ”They’re going to Broadgate, aren’t they?!” UPDATE: I had to stop and look up the e-mail. I was wrong, I emailed her because for a second I was thinking they might be headed to Gary’s house in Broadgate! It would have been an entirely different story.
This is extreme body horror at it’s finest! You might not feel this, but I see some dark humor here, and can totally appreciate it! (See note in Ch.12.) I think I’m safe with my assumption here, but I’ve pissed off an author before by finding some dark humor in their world where there was most definitely none intended. ::leSigh::
I love that this is written along with what is going on in the world. It’s not ‘capitalizing’ on anything, it’s saying ‘Hey, things are fucked up, but look – they could be SOOOO much worse!” Lol! Some time had passed when I realized that this wasn’t posted, (again, all apologizes). I was going to skim through, just to refresh for this, but ended up reading from cover to cover for a second time! It’s such a great vakay from IRL for a little while, (but parallel to IRL 😉). I noticed that a couple readers do not like the ending of this story, but I wholeheartedly disagree. There are so many things that could happen, but no matter what – in our minds we’ve seen our perfect ending.
“I want you with me forever, Caitlyn.”
The most horrifying sentence in this book!
Alright. I’ve begun to babble, so that’s a sure sign that it’s time to wrap this up. When you need to stop seeing the news, and a distraction beckons because ‘those damn kids’ are just always there anymore, you can grab THE LOCKDOWN TRADE-OFF on Amazon, then rate it on Goodreads! Your stalking options for Sam West, and Collette Metcalf are as follows: Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, BookLikes, LibraryThing, and FictionDB, and @west_horror on Twitter. There is at least one Sam West #BleedingMeme in the Gallery, and the Sam West / Collette Metcalf ‘coming-out’ interview is a fun read and can be read here. Lastly…
IF YOU WERE GOING OUT ON HALLOWEEN AS A CHARACTER FROM ONE OF SAM WEST’S BOOKS, WHO WOULD YOU BE?
Answers in the comments please! You never know, this might end up not being just for fun, so comment, damnit!! lmfao… Until next time – Stay Healthy, and Stay Safe!

About The Author
Enter the dark mind of Sea Caummisar. “Warning: I love anything involving torture, blood, guts and gore. I’m not only a writer. I’m also an avid reader. My books are not for the faint of heart or people who are squeamish. I love all things horror. Especially b class horror. Find me on Facebook (Sea Caummisar). I’m sometimes on Twitter (@seacaummisar). Keep up with what I’m reading on Goodreads (Sea Caummisar). I love hearing from my readers!!! PS… If you don’t like extreme horror, you probably won’t like my work.“
He’s gone from odontophobia to odontophilia, and made it work so well that a couple of new odontophilia aficionados may be born from this! I have to say that Matt could have made this way more stomach turning, (he’s got the ability – I’ve seen him do it!), but he didn’t go for shock value and gross out factors. It’s a perfect blend to make this a book I couldn’t put down. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t for beginners, but it’s…balanced. I love the characters, I love their relationship, I really just love this story.
Notice how it says Book One… It looks like Revolting Romance stories are going to stick around, yay! How can Matt top what he’s already written in the past though? It’s going to be fun finding out! I get the feeling that it won’t be pretty, though. As long as I smile like I did while reading Romance Is Dead, I’ll be a happy me. Matt does his dark humor dry. I love it.
Now… I need to get ‘Our Demons Within’. (Update, almost finished, it’s awesome!!) One book of Matt’s is never enough, I always need a follow up…
