Jimmy Pudge on Stalking, Deception, and Bad Book Reviews

MAN IN LOVE: Dear Jimmy, I was working with a girl at the gas station and training her to be a good employee. Something happened to me. I started getting really strong feelings for her so I asked her if we could go to eat something one night and talk a little bit.

Jimmy Pudge on Webcam Whores, Criminals, and Facebook Drama Queens

UNSURE: Dear Jimmy, My boyfriend of a year has recently been trying to get me to be a webcam girl to make extra money for us.

I, however, am not sweating to the oldies nor walking on fire my constance readers. Hell naw, I am doing something entirely different. Instead of selling…

Portrait of the Psychopath As A Young Woman is Intelligent Splatter


Slice Chris Bennett





Portrait of the Psychopath as a Young Woman is a collaborative work between Edward Lee and Elizabeth Steffen that explores the meshing of normal, well-meaning folks and the utter depravity that lies beneath the surface of humanity, spreading like infection through the lives of all it touches.

Plebs by Jim Goforth Could Be a Laymon Novel


The Hand That Feeds Michael W. Garza





Richard Laymon is one of my favorite writers and a huge Influence on my writing. What does this have to do with Plebs, you ask? Quite a bit. When Laymon passed it left a huge gaping hole that typical splatterpunk just couldn’t fill. A lot of…
