Almost three decades ago, a literary movement forever changed the landscape of the horror entertainment industry. This fall, Grey Matter Press breathes new life into that cause as we reawaken the Splatterpunk revolution of the 1980s with the release of Splatterlands.


Splatterlands: Reawakening the Splatterpunk Revolution is a collection of personal, intelligent and subversive horror with a point. This illustrated volume of dark fiction honors the truly revolutionary efforts of some of the most brilliant writers of all time with an all-new collection of visceral, disturbing and thought-provoking work from a diverse group of modern minds.


Exploring concepts that include serial murder, betrayal, religious fanaticism, physical abuse, societal corruption, greed, mental instability, sexual assault and more, Splatterlands delivers on the promise of the original Splatterpunk movement with this collection of honest, intelligent and hyperintensive horror.


Prepare yourself for a disturbing journey that is far smarter than gore for the sake of gore. We introduce you to Splatterlands...
