A Fistful of Guts: The Heartless Heart-Ripper #2

Jon Athan

WARNING: This novel contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

William Keller, known as the Traveling Surgeon, is terrorizing the streets of Florida with two accomplices. They capture their victims, then they ‘operate’ on them. When they’re finished, they steal their victims’ large intestines and leave a bloodbath behind them. Unable to capture them, Homicide Detective Jamie Mills requests assistance from a peer—Homicide Detective Harvey Skinner. Together, they continue Harvey’s experimental program.

Sam Lee, the Heartless Heart-Ripper, is released from death row once again and asked to do what he does best: capture, torture, release.

Jon Athan brings you the highly-anticipated sequel to The Good, the Bad, and the Sadistic in this gruesome story of questionable ethics, violent vengeance, and human horror.

I like how meaty this one is!

~sg

Jon Athan is back again with a splattery, gore drenched, and drippy piece of Unrelenting Human Horror that’s gonna fill your violence quota for about six months! The Heartless Heart-Ripper is in perfect form, ever the consummate professional. I appreciate a man who takes pride in his work.

I like how meaty this one is. The characters motivations, the ache of those who are skating the razors edge between good and evil, and, of course, the brutality. I could talk for an hour about the characters, but I’ll save it for a no-spoiler blog.
I’m excited to know that the next book is in the works, (omg, Eric! Right?!), but even more excited to know that there is a chance for ‘The Heartless Heart-Ripper’ – a pre-quel! THAT is going to be amazing, I already know it. I’m also glad I’m not alone anymore in liking “The House That Jack Built”.

THE GROOMER by Jon Athan

Andrew McCarthy grows concerned for his family after he catches a young man, Zachary Denton, photographing his daughter, Grace McCarthy, and other children at a park. To his dismay, Zachary talks his way out of trouble when he’s confronted by the police. He hopes that’s the end of it. Then he finds Zachary at a diner and then at a grocery store. He knows their encounters aren’t coincidences. And just as Andrew prepares to defend his family, Grace vanishes.

As the police search stalls and the leads dry up, Andrew decides to take matters into his own hands. He starts by searching for sex offenders in the area and researching enhanced interrogation techniques… He convinces himself he’ll do anything to rescue his daughter, unaware of the pure evil he’ll face in his journey. He’s willing to hurt—to torture—anyone to save his family.

Jon Athan, the author of Into the Wolves’ Den and The Abuse of Ashley Collins, delves into the underworld of internet predators in this disturbing horror novel. Are your children safe?

WARNING: This book contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised.

My review was posted in March, but it’s that batch of missing reviews that must’ve fell onto The Twilight Zone, because I sure as hell can’t figure out where they all went!

Hurtcore

Jon Athan writes with intent.
Extreme horror that makes you open your eyes to the real monsters, and the real issues. Stories like this one, and INTO THE WOLVES DEN, are full of things that have happened IRL, based on ppl that actually exist in this world – perhaps closer than you think.
I just wish the vigilante justice happened more than we knew about, too.
As always – I can’t wait to read what’s next! The ‘New Release’ section of Amazon is killing me with available pre-orders!

On a personal note:
‘Jon’… Congratulations 🎉 I’m so happy to hear that your getting married! I hated thinking about you and your (now) fiance being separated by so many miles. I am sorry that we’re (the U. S.) losing you. Now you’ll be an expat, and I really hoped to meet you at a signing one day.
I also want to mention how weird it was to be reading about the very beginning of the COVID19 news, when my state is ordered to “shelter-in-place” at midnight tonight – enforced by the National Guard 😱 Crazy days.

THE GROOMER is available on Amazon

Games 5: Donny by Sea Caummisar

Coming Soon From The Dark Mind of Sea Caummisar

41JqDq3UwML
Release date Sept 18, 2020 – I requested an ARC to R&R

Here’s a little refresher as to what happened in the Games 4: Maze…
Sara and Donny created a pain maze and forced people to go room to room, which eventually led to painful deaths. Sara was dealing with being pregnant, and after an injury she was put on bedrest for the sake of the unborn child. Donny decided to train the survivor of the maze as his own partner.
The survivor of the pain maze is doing everything in his power to become Donny’s best friend.
This book picks up where that book left off.

Scenes of graphic violence. You’ve been warned.

I think that this is my favorite book in this series. Let’s see, how much can I say without spoiling anything…
Book 5 feels like it has come full circle, everything has been touched upon, thought out, and dealt with, so knowing that Book 6 is coming feels like an added bonus.
I also love how the author’s different worlds are weaving together at the edges – connections are made that make us feel special for knowing these little details of ‘insider information’.
I appreciate Sara a little more than I did before. I know I have see-sawed with my opinion of her since meeting her, but I’m happy with where I’ve landed with regards to her character.
I absolutely adore Rick, and was pleasantly surprised by his arrival. He’s quirky and seems honestly friendly. I’m happy to see that he’s eating better.
I think that the idea of a seventh book isn’t out of the question. Games 7 – The Prequel: Andy’s Story could hold some very mind blowing groundwork.

Games 4 – Maze by Sea Caummisar

PicsArt_05-06-07.15.21
Games 4 Release Date – July 10th, 2020

In Games 1, Sara won Donny’s twisted game. In Games 2, she became his apprentice (collecting cash from debtors of Sanger Entertainment, an adult arena of illegal events). In Games 3, we got to know Donny just a little bit better. Sara found out she was pregnant and agreed to keep the baby (under the condition he helped her make a pain maze). She does not want the baby, and has plans to get an abortion that he doesn’t know about. This is where the story begins…..

 

PicsArt_05-06-08.33.59

After two long months of preparations, Sara finally has her maze, and she is anxious to get started. The 12 prisoners are in place, and ready to be Sara’s tortured little mice.
run-horror-1540581477One of the maze participants, Bas, just might have what it takes to survive, and possibly even work with Sara and Donny.
Little do they know that Bas is a different kind of criminal, and he is dangerous. Will they figure it out before getting him too deeply involved with their work? Before everything is compromised?

I actually shouted out loud towards the end. Something that I wanted to happen – happened, and now I don’t know how I feel about it!
The only thing I do know for sure is that Games 5 is going to be intense!

Games 4 – Maze will be released July 10th, 2020. You can preorder your copy on Amazon now.

PIGS Wade H. Garrett

This is an extremely sadistic story that should only be read by the seasoned extreme-horror reader.’

🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷

51Y3cbU4jwL._SY346_
5/5 Piggies

Synopsis:  Jake lost his wife and unborn daughter on a West Texas highway when three police officers abused their authority. The pigs thought they had got off scot-free until Jake took justice into his own hands. 

First thing first – I’ve waited way too long to pick up Wade’s work. Truth? I’m the farthest thing from a book snob – we know this, but…  I think that (maybe) I did judge the books by their covers at first ::cringe:: I know! It’s inexcusable! I realized I’d misjudged Wade when I read his short in Matt Shaw’s The Devil’s Guests.  So, I picked up Insane Bastards right when it came out, (the synopsis sucked me right in!), and knew I had been missing out. (Dark & twisted humor gets me every time!) I went ahead and grabbed the complete “A Glimpse into Hell” series instead of picking them up one by one, and I’m glad I did because I couldn’t stop!

PIGS is an extremely satisfying story!

If you’re ever been in a situation involving the cops, you know it’s hard to remain calm, and if you’re being bullied by that superiority complex in a blue suit – your blood just boils in your helpless body. You might think you know what Jake was going through when he was pulled over while rushing his pregnant wife to the ER, but you have no idea! That shit is infuriating! I was getting pissed when I was reading, and The Dark Defender told me to be quiet – twice.
Wade’s writing goes next level sick & twisted, but… all of his torture is very original, and there are damn good stories under all the carnage! Every time I had to stop reading because life came calling I was so frustrated! Learn from my mistake, and don’t hesitate to grab anything of his. They’re all available with KU, too.

You gotta love Shakespearean word play THIS damn good!

SNUFF: A F*cked Up Short by Matt Shaw

 ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆

WARNINGS:

“This is A SHORT STORY. It is intended for the members of Kindle Unlimited who have been requesting short, sick, bedtime stories. As part of Kindle Unlimited they are able to download this title for free. If you wish for a longer story to read, please do not purchase any of the ‘F*cked-Up Shorts’. ”

SNUFF is loosely based on Dan Brownlie‘s idea for a faux snuff film (‘2 Girls, 1 Victim’ – screenplay also written by Matt Shaw).

Expect twists galore and sheer brutality!

 

Nikki and Jamie have taken SNUFF mainstream* – serving up punishment when the court system fails, and vigilante justice has never been sexier!

*Well, as mainstream as you can be online without getting caught. There are actually only a select few who know of the show, each member personally invited.

Tonight’s episode of ‘Two Girls, One Victim’ has a very special guest – a rapist named Jack Goodall. Specific tools chosen just for the guest of honor are laid out,  and gleaming under the set’s lights. Pliers, a hammer, nails, screws, hacksaws, piano wire, rope, duct tape, an adult sex-toy, and what appeared to be a small bottle of lube. Things might get messy, and the members are definitely going to get their money’s worth from this show!

 

You can find Snuff: An Extreme Horror SHORT STORY
on Amazon, and Goodreads.

LAB RAT: A NOVEL OF EXTREME HORROR, SEX, AND GORE by Matt Shaw

Before the cures, there are the experiments.


His heart was in the right place.
His mind, though, was in a much darker place.

If horror movies have taught us anything, it’s that the big, beautiful house that you’re looking at – the one that is priced WAY too low to be able to believe – is being sold for a reason!  Just look what happened in Amityville!

When the HOUSE says "Get out" - you GTFO!!
When the HOUSE says “Get out” – you GTFO!!

Becky & Kevin have obviously never watched a horror movie, and are moving in to their nice, new, creepy AF home – with the added bonus of getting to keep the previous tenant’s belongings! YAY! Those hospital beds in the attic will sure come in handy!

The couple doesn’t have to worry about the walls bleeding, or flies taking over the bedroom. Their house isn’t haunted. This isn’t the Amityville Horror! Becky & Kevin’s horror story is only beginning, and their fate is much, much worse.

The doctor is IN!

Fun excerpt from LAB RAT:

“You like to read?” the realtor asked – hoping to find a common interest to make her more of an option to purchase from.

“I do,” Becky’s answer was short and sweet.

“Who’s your favorite? I’m a sucker for Stephen King. The way he builds his characters up, adding layer, upon layer… He is a true master of his craft.”

“He is,” Becky answered. Again, keeping it short and sweet.

“My wife prefers… Oh… What are their names… Matt Not Shaw and Iain Rob Wrong.”

“Excuse my husband, he’s being an idiot.”

 

LAB RAT by Matt Shaw is available on Amazon for $2.99, FREE for KU subscribers!

The Great American Slasher by David C. Hayes

Get ready for a real American bloodbath!

The All-American girl meets the All-American psychopath in a duel to the death!

Suburbia will never be safe again!

Adrienne Marks lives a semi-charmed kind of life; she’s a cheerleader, the prom queen, and dates the most popular boy in school. Adrienne is pretty, athletic, and popular – all the things that her brother is not. Andy is introverted, dark, and prefers the internet over human interaction.

For twin siblings, they couldn’t be more different.

Andy and his best friend TJ found a new underground website called VictimNet. The page looks like an interactive ad for a new horror movie. There are ‘trailers’ of girls being murdered, graphic pictures, and forums to chat with other fans. VictimNet members can add people to the site, and auction them off to the highest bidder.

Andy and TJ decide to put Adrienne up for auction on the site – they can have some fun pretending that some psychopath is going to murder her, and it will be the perfect way to bring Adrienne down a peg or two.

Little did they know that VictimNet is a real ‘Red Room’ site, and the trailers are real ‘snuff’ videos. They just auctioned off the prom queen to brutal serial killer. Once they realize that everything is happening IRL, it is too late to stop The Bidder from getting exactly what he paid for.  He has plans for the girl he just bought – and his plans would turn Lucio Fulci’s stomach!

Scene from ZOMBIE – directed by Lucio Fulci

GENITAL GRINDER by Ryan Harding

Think you’re hardcore? Think again.
I thought I was HARDER than hardcore, and… I didn’t handle this as easily as I believed I would. (That’s evident by the amount of time that passed between my first reading and this post!)

My showers are never hot enough any more.
The backs of my eyeballs itch.
I think I caught something, a VVD¹.

GrinderCover

Enjoy the tour, friends. Enjoy the gang-bang. You may need psych drugs afterwards, you may need an air-sick bag and a steam shower, but I feel confident that you will be provocatively moved by this book.”
~ Edward Lee, from his introduction

The Stories –

Bottom Feeder:
Hitting the bar right before last call isn’t the most opportune time to pick up a super-model. The best this guy could snag tonight was a blonde with a very slow metabolism. Her slow metabolism might have been a contributing factor to what happened at about 3:36 am, but that’s not even close to being the worst part of the night.

Damaged Goods:
Von & Greg can’t believe their luck when they come across their favorite porn star look-alike on the side of the road. The little part about her already being dead was not of any concern to these guys. There are a couple of moments when you might think one brother is sicker than the other, but let me assure you – that’s not the truth.
Yeah… this is the first of the gag-inducing stories, but if you have a weak stomach you probably wouldn’t be interested in this book or checking out this review!

Sharing Needles:
‘The Slave Killer’ claimed the lives of between four [confirmed] and eighteen [unconfirmed] women before disappearing. Twenty-five years later, the murders have started again. Is ‘The Bartok Butcher’ mimicking the brutal killings, or has ‘The Slave Killer’ returned to finish what he started?
There’s a hidden journal with ALL of the answers written inside, but will the right person find it before it’s too late? It depends on who you’re rooting for. In the end, I’m sure that the right person walked away.

Genital Grinder: A Snuff Act in 5 Acts:
Von & Greg are together again, and this time it’s not just for a bit of necrophiliac debauchery. No sir. This time is for fun & profit. The boys are going to lay the Urban Legend to rest and produce the world’s first sanctioned snuff film – ‘Genital Grinder’.
They’ve acquired THE Geisha Hammond, (the mouth-fuckable news anchor who’s lived through the previous stories), and the REAL Lolita Ream, (the look-alike having been used for the above mentioned necrophiliac debauchery in DAMAGED GOODS). These two women will be the stars of Von & Greg’s first film.
WARNING: It’s not just all about the blood, and the gore. This one almost made me puke.
Seriously.

Development:
A lot of people don’t realize that when you take your film in to be developed – the person who is developing it actually sees your photos. There are others who do realize, but just don’t care.
Alex is one of the faceless individuals that develops film, and believe me when I tell you that he is looking at the photos. He has even started printing off extra copies for his own personal collection.
When he recognizes some missing girls in a set of photos, he decides to pay the customer a visit – and it’s not because he’s a good Samaritan.

Emissary:
The ‘Taste Of Death’ videos are labeled as ‘shockumentaries‘, and advertise real deaths caught on tape. Clips of accidents, murders, and animal attacks are collected and pieced together to form 90 minute videos.
‘Taste Of Death 9: Grave Matters’ is about to be released, and Gabriel could hardly wait. He’d watched each of the first eight videos at least three times. When he thinks he recognizes the ‘shotgun to the face’ guy standing on a street corner, alive and with 100% of his skull, he feels totally betrayed. After a bit of research, and some amature investigation, Gabriel is sure he has figured out what is going on.
Then he sees ‘TOD9’ and realizes just how wrong he is.

Genital Grinder II: Dis-Membered:
We get to finish off this thrill ride with a little bit more of Von & Greg’s nauseating shenanigans! These two are bound & determined to become millionaires, and since their little snuff film didn’t pan out quite right – it’s back to the drawing board. They decide to dive headfirst into the oh-so lucrative business of penis-napping, but without a lick of common sense between them… well, becoming millionaires STILL may not be as easy as they thought.

Let me wrap this up by throwing in a few final thoughts –
Up until now, the only other work I’ve read by Ryan Harding was in Sixty-Five Stirrup Iron Road, so I don’t have a lot of back material to go on, (but, we know that Sixty-Five Stirrup Iron Road DID have some fun & nauseating moments for me). I think that Genital Grinder wins the trophy for being the most difficult book I’ve ever read. Reading it this second time (to help write the review) wasn’t any easier. BUT – underneath the buckets of blood, vomit, and bodily fluids, these are really great stories. If you don’t think you have the stomach to even attempt the worst, then start off by reading the shorts without Von & Greg. Start with DEVELOPMENT, and SHARING NEEDLES – they’re outstanding stories, and well worth the price of the book.
I love how certain characters, (like news anchor Geisha Hammond), are referenced in almost every story, along with the other little nods & winks (the Gaping Anus video being my favorite tie-in >.< ) that bond them all together.

Have you already read GG? Leave me some comments! Let me know your thoughts on the book and/or the author – good or bad. I’m very curious to hear other opinions.

MY LOVELY WIFE by Dani Brown

MY LOVELY WIFE
by Dani Brown
Print Length: 72 pages
Publisher: MorbidbookS. Everything Bleeds.

A story told by the most patient man in the world, his love at first sight and his obsession to make every perverse sexual fantasy a reality.
Despite the length of this book, it took me a little bit to finish it. I’d get squeamish, and have to put it down – only finding myself wondering what happened next.
Is it sexist to say that I was surprised that it was written by a woman? I hope not, because that’s the last thing that I am. I think that I’m just surprised that Dani Brown has such a strong command of this man’s psyche, and, well… his cock. Some of the detail, and descriptions, are just so spot on – IDK… I’ve seen men write from the women’s perspective, and not many have gotten it down to the point that I’d forget it was a man writing the story.
I didn’t realize this book was just released. I don’t remember how I ran across it, either. Surfing through bizarro blogs, I’m sure, but I wish I could remember exactly. While putting this post together, and gathering links, I found a great #FF – MorbidBooks & The Grim Reverend Steven Rage seem to be linked with LegumeManBooks (GN Braun, Matthew Revert, Bradley Sands, etc.), and that’s bonus points in my book! MorbidBooks has a WP site, (all the cool kids do!) – where everything bleeds, and I’ll most definitely be checking out more of their books, and writers.
I might need a break in between. Maybe go take a few showers, and a few Xanax. Watch some cartoons. Try to start eating again….

AMAZON SYNOPSIS:
Publication Date: July 24, 2014
He had to have her the moment he saw her trachea ring. Six months later she was his lovely wife. He performed his duties as a husband and she as a wife. He tolerated a house filled with references to her late first husband and the children they had together. He put up with her prudish ways. He waited. He was patient. He planned. He was adaptable. He was rewarded over the course of a week in her basement. He turned his perverse sexual fantasies of worms and maggots and her lovely crusty trachea ring into a gruesome reality.
