Three twelve-year-old boys that are looking forward to spending the summer in their hidden fort, doing what boys of that age do...eating junk food, reading comic books, and talking about girls. Things are right on plan until the boys are faced with having to battle monsters...both real life ones in their own homes and the ancient terror that has taken up residence in their town’s cemetery: a ghoul. I have always liked this type of horror because it’s such a definitive time in our lives. It's been many years, but I remember being twelve. Everything seemed larger than life, and even the smallest thing felt like the world as I knew it was surely going to end before I went to bed. At that age so much of our mortal existence depended on the adults in our lives. If something should have happened that you were sure was "Twilight Zone" fodder, something that threatened your stable young life, you could just tell the adults in your world that were surely put there to grant your every wish... (HA HA), and even though they never really believed it...they would try to make "IT" go away" and make you feel better. In horror stories the children are always to be believed, even if they tell their adults that there is a glowing, naked ghoul that is hell-bent on impregnating the women of the town...those that it isn't planning to have for lunch...in its lair right under the town's cemetery! That pretty much describes what the boys encountered in this story.... an overly excited, corpse-eating ghoul in the "home life" of two of our young protagonists, Doug and Barry. I won’t go into details because that’s for the reader to discover. You’ll go into this book expecting a "creature-feature" offering with only blood and carnage, but you will close the book with tears in your eyes and your heart torn in half. This author is very, very good at presenting this kind of story. He will take you on a journey with Ghoul, and it will be visceral, painful and emotional. If this is your first time with Brian Keene, consider this an amazing introduction to horror at its stellar best.… (mais)

𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡-𝐁𝐥𝐮𝐝𝐠𝐞𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐨𝐨𝐥𝐬:
My review is for the eBook version of this book.
This eBook is a collection of short stories about tools being used in various contexts, some in a creative context, some in visceral, bludgeoning context, to literally drive home their point with a tool or implement of death, to maim, torture and kill.
All the authors have a unique writing style, sense of humour, a specific and vivid type of imagination, which I appreciate.

𝐇𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫 𝐓𝐢𝐦𝐞-𝐊𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐓𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐚:
It's the first time I have read any short story by Kristopher Triana, I liked the bizarre short story, I love art and I understand that pain, suffering, trauma can be used as motivation to be creative and express yourself creatively. Pain is art. The body is the canvas and tattoos or piercings are the art.

𝐓𝐨𝐨𝐥 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐲-𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐊𝐨𝐳𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐰𝐬𝐤𝐢;
A man is keeping a man captive, while he tortures him with his rusty tools.
It's weird that the man's tools are sentient and gleefully anticipate and enjoy watching their master torture, maim and murder various people, they are bloodthirsty tools 😅
I like the way the short story is written, i've never read a short story about sadistic, murderous bludgeon tools, that are implements of torture and death before.
It's a unique short story and I like the way it is written.

𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐢𝐝𝐞-𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐨𝐫𝐲 𝐋. 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐬:
A man with the unique talent for being well endowed and being able to perform self fellasio.
When you have that type of unique talent to satisfy yourself sexually, I guess no one else will compare to yourself lol 🤣
A serial killer on a road trip, improving the facial features of men by using their tool named Da Vinci and taking their blood stained moustaches & manhood as a trophy is unique and interesting.
The author doesn't specify the gender of the serial killer, but it's interesting that they festihize men with a mustache, as their victim type.
All the other male victims were a substitute for the creepy, perverted teacher.
The real target was the perverted weird, creepy male teacher.
I like that the serial killer abbreviated their accomplices' name to Del Satchel or "Medea" but what kind of ame is Delbert Satchel anyway it sounds like the latest designer satchel bag, it reminded me of that when I read this short story.

𝐃𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲-𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐊𝐞𝐞𝐧𝐞:
A elderly lady is unexpected to be a murderer, but the older folk are always underestimated, alienated, ignored by most of society, they still have value as a person, knowledge & wisdom.
Elders should be respected, unless they are racist, homophobic, a misogynist that is sexist and hates women and are intolerant of women, I have no respect for those types of people whether they are fictional or real-life people.

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐁𝐨𝐛𝐛𝐲'𝐬 𝐄𝐲𝐞𝐬-𝐖𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐡 𝐉𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞:
Bobby is a psychopath, that tortures, maims and murders animals, he has the potential to be a serial killer, his father is a serial killer and a peadophile.
All the children are from a similar background, either being abused by a family member or being bullied, Bobby is the scapegoat, the one person all his friends turn to when they need help, he's the only person they trust and rely on.
This short story was creepy to read, sadistic, dark but also interesting, I like the way it was written.
I haven't read any short stories by this author before but I liked the short story.

𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐝𝐨-𝐉𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐁𝐮𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐫:
I didn't really like this short story, but other people might like it though.
The author refers to a male Dom as a Domme-(this type of Domme is female)
It's incorrectly used, a man that is a Dom is known as a Dom in the BDSM community.
Safe words are very important, so is aftercare, so I don't like that the creepy Dom doesn't like allowing their female submissive partners to use their safe word that both agreed on, if/when they feel uncomfortable, overwhelmed or they don't like something the Dom is doing, mutual consent is very important.
A lot of people inaccurately portray what a Dom/sub dnamic is actually like, but I will always point out inaccuracies, or anything that is a red flag, even when it is in a fictional extreme horror or splatterpunk short story, novella or full novel.
I don't really understand why a woman would want to make a makeshift, Drilldo to use on themself, it's bizarre and it seems painful.
Doctor Surly doesn't respects women, especially women that are submissive or a masochist.
The ending of the story involving the drill was kinda gross, but justified since Doctor Surly is a weird, creep.
I don't agree with the author of this specific short story that anyone that is submissive is a "desperate weakling, that wants to be in sub-space"
just because a man or woman is submissive or a masochist it doesn't automatically mean that they are weak, inferior, or less than in real-life or even in a fictional short story.
I think authors should take into consideration that some people have had abusive Dom/sub dynamics/relationships so it can be a bit triggering to read about (I've had abusive Dom/sub dynamics/relationships so it just made me feel a bit uncomfortable reading this short story especially when Doctor Surly saud about safe words pretty much being useless, like the sub have no rights, even though the sub has control in the dynamic, they decide when their Dom has earned their respect, trust, consent and submission.
It's supposed to be mutual & sacred connection/bond you have with the person-a mental, emotional, spiritual/psychic (if your Dom/sub connection/bond is spiritual & involves witchcraft) physical/sexual connection/bond beyond just physical attraction & lustful intentions.
There is a lot more to it, than most people think.

𝐎𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠-𝐕𝐢𝐜 𝐊𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲:
This short story reminds me of the TV series The Following-it's about a cult of serial killers that are obsessed with the writer/poet Edgar Allan Poe, they have to kill someone to prove their loyalty, devotion to the cult leader. Some people are taught how to kill people.
It's interesting that people are being taught how to torture, maim and eventually kill their "Volunteers" via Zoom, i'm not sure if they are already murderers, or serial killers or just wannabe murderers, serial killers that are fantasists and they have never killed anyone before, but they have always fantasised about it.
I guess if you're being taught how to to kill people in a way that you won't be caught, then you have to prove that you're actually willing to participate and prove that you have the sadistic urge, compulsion and psychopathic traits to actually do it and show a demonstration based on what you are being taught.

𝐒𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬-𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐌𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐧:
This short story reminds me of Neanderthals hunting prehistoric dinosaurs for a source of food and living in a cave.
It also reminds me Celtic cannibalistic tribes (some Celtic people were cannibals)
I don't like reading about animals being hunting, tortured, abused or being killed, even if it's just fictional it makes me feel physically sick 🤢😢
This short story wasn't interesting to read, I don't like reading about animal abuse, murder it's disgusting.

𝐓𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐥 𝐇𝐢𝐬 𝐃𝐮𝐞-𝐒𝐚𝐦 𝐑𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝:
Greg Walsh is a shop owner and he's determined to protect his livelihood at all costs, even if it means he has to kill someone in self-defence.
The Devil came for what he was owed-the soul of Greg Walsh.
This short story had a lot of graphic, visceral, violence and detail, but it was well written, I loved it.
The man in the devil halloween costume is not what they seem, looks after all can be deceiving.

𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐉𝐢𝐦 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐦-𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐧 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐫𝐞:
This author has a sense of humour that I like & appreciate.
It's impressive that the singer in the band was able to brutally murder seven people, while the audience didn't bat an eyelid, or seem to care enough to want to pay attention or feel the need to intervene and stop the brutality and violence.
This short story reminds me of the horror film The Green Room and era when the band The Doors were a active band.

𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐥 𝐏𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞-𝐃𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧 𝐋𝐚𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐲:
This short story was interesting to read, the Dark Web, Deep Web encrypted part of the internet has always been intriguing to me.
It's not surprising that many people would pay for a bi-monthly subscription to gain access to watch a women being willingly, tortured, maimed for her & the audiences' sadistic, perverse, sexual gratification and pleasure.
The woman is submissive and a masochist, she's turned on/aroused by physical pain being inflicted onto her, pain & pleasure work well together.
She likes sharing the experience with a audience, that can watch via a webcam if they pay the bi-monthly fee of course, the audience seem like they are sexual sadists and they enjoy watching what is happening to the woman, they like participating as well.
At the start of the short story the person inflicting physical pain on the woman had a serial killer, sexual sadist kind of vibe, which was sinister and dark, but the short story went into a different direction than what I was expecting, but I wasn't disappointed.

𝐓𝐡𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠-𝐖𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐄. 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐠:
This short story was okay, it reminds me of Aish people and The Children of the Corn, the entity he who walks behind the rows of the corn that the children believe in and worship.
The Mother in the Seed reminds me of the Goddess Gaia-(Mother Nature herself)
The entity in the short story seems like the are a ancient elemental being, made of a specific element of nature itself.

𝐒𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐡 𝐢𝐭-𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐭 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝐰:
I wasn't sure what to expect for the last short story in this anthology, but it is as equally fucked up as it is darkly funny (to me at least 😂)
After consuming acid (LSD) did the main character in the short story develop paranoid schizophrenia and a specific auditory & visual hallucination?
Or did they originally suffer from psychosis?
Were the main character already mentally ill, suffering from psychosis and auditory & visual hallucinations or was consuming Acid what contributed to his strange predicament and then blacking out and having no recollection of what happened to the women he followed home and had ssex with which may or may not have been rape, and then murder since the main character woke up next to dead women, that were blood stained.
Make up your own mind about what really caused the circumstances of the main character and the strange issue that he had with his manhood.
It's bizarre and strange but somewhat funny in a dark way, I like dark humour.
I would recommend this Splatterpunk anthology of short stories to fans of Extreme Horror & Splatterpunk and to fans of the specific authors that wrote the short stories in this anthology.

I received this book in e-book format as an earlier reviewer. This is the second book in the series and I did not read the first one, which I think would have been helpful for this book. The story is passable but I found the over-the-top male barbarian style not to my taste. The characters spend a lot of time talking about who has the longest, how many women they have conquered, and how many people they have killed. At times there are attempts to make them seem sorry for what they do only to have them just keep doing it. A male testosterone ride unless it is parody, which I doubt.… (mais)

For fans of Brian Keene this is likely to be one of those books you've been waiting a while for. Before Deadite Press released this edition it had only been released in a limited edition hardback and on a collection called Conspiracy of One - both of which are out of print and only available on the likes of e-bay for larger sums of money.[return][return]As the book description says it follows a group of electronic store employees who are locked in a storage cage in the warehouse whilst a madman goes to work at the front of the shop. He then takes the employees out to the front one at a time leaving the remaining hostages to wonder what is really going on. With a good chunk of the book taking place in the warehouse it follows the reactions of the remaining members and how they interact with each other and deal with what is happening. It also leave both them and the reader to wonder what the madman has in store for them. [return][return]Fans of Keene's previous works will enjoys the links this has with the mythos which features in his others works whilst not being too confusing for anyone who has never read a Keene book before.[return][return]Whilst the book could of happily been released on it's own both Deadite and Brian Keene have added 3 bonus short stories called “Marriage Causes Cancer In Rats,” “Lest Ye Become,” and “Waiting For Darkness” - these have been released before but are now out of print so it is good to see them being added to give readers better value and to give fans more access to his other works.[return][return]The book is a good read for fans of both Keene and horror and it's good to see his work being made more accessible so I highly recommend you add this to your books collection.… (mais)
