About Vincenzo Bilof
From Detroit, Michigan, Vincenzo Bilof has been called ‘The Metallica of Poetry’ and ‘The Shakespeare of Gore’. With a body of work that includes gritty, apocalyptic horror (The Zombie Ascension Series), surrealist prose (The Horror Show), and visceral genre satire (Vampire Strippers from Saturn), Bilof’s fiction remains as divisive and controversial as it is original. He likes to think Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, and Charles Baudelaire would be proud of his work. More likely, Ed Wood would have been his biggest fan.
