What we are looking to publish: sleaze, body horror, unhinged characters, oddball premises, anti-commercial, weirdo shit that’ll get you kicked out of any major NY publishing house should you even discuss it on their property.

Art for sickos and by sickos. Perverted material that makes you feel weird and uncomfortable. Characters drowning in filth and loving it.

Books that subvert normality.

We want you to bring us the material you’re too scared to show anyone else.
