Bad times are waiting for you.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Readers should be very familiar with the work of Max Booth III. Author of The Mind is a Razor Blade, How to Successfully Kidnap Strangers, Toxicity, The Nightly Disease, Touch the Night, Maggots Screaming, and the wildly popular We Need to Do Something, Max and his partner Lori Michelle are the publishers of Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing and Ghoulish Books, and host the Ghoulish Podcast. With his debut collection, Booth presents the nightmares of our lives, raw and emotional, and destined to burn a hole in your soul.
Trevor Henderson (creator of Siren Head) says: “Abnormal Statistics takes us on a desolate walking tour of the everyday American nightmare. Come see what’s happening behind the closed doors and shuttered windows of your neighbors, your best friends, the people you trust most. Bleak and bloody horror that’s as raw and immediate as a pile of yellowed teeth, roots and all.“, and Laurel Hightower (Crossroads, Below) calls the book: “A tightly written and devastating collection. Abnormal Statistics grabs the reader by the throat with each tale, from the stellar opener ‘Indiana Death Song’ to the harrowing ‘Video Nasties.’ Throughout the collection, Booth performs a sort of emotional autopsy that’s impossible to look away from, even as we’re handed our own viscera to hold. Horror, sorrow, fury and dark humor are woven throughout with an expert hand, and by the end, it hurt more of my feelings than I ever knew I possessed.”
Forthcoming 23 March 2023 from Apocalypse Party, Abnormal Statistics by Max Booth III is available for pre-order now.
