Paul M. Sammon has collected some of the most extreme horror available on the market and compiled it into this gem of an anthology. This book is not for everyone. The subject matter is well beyond societal norms and should not be read by those who find taboo material offensive. If am describing you, read something else. Those willing to tow the line of decency with me, read on...Splatterpunks is comprised of 17 short-stories and an essay by the author on the splatterpunk genre as a whole. My favorites of the collection include: Clive Barker's "Midnight Meat Train" - story of a killer feeding off of the New York underground, John Skipp's "Film at Eleven" the story of a battered wife who has led a battered life and once she plots her revenge, things do not go as planned and Edward Bryant's "While She Was Out" - A woman is attacked by four men in a parking lot at Christmas; revenge ensues. Some of the stories are a bit weak at times, but all in all this is a great collection from this subset of the horror genre.
