Taking Submissions: DOA III

June 6, 2016


Deadline: June 6th 2016

These are a few excerpts from Amazon reviews of DOA II — our Extreme Horror Anthology.

Are you ready for round three? Then we invite you to make extreme-horror history.  Our most infamous anthology series is back, and by now, you know what we’re looking for…and if you don’t, then check out Volumes I & II.  Make sure you’ve got a strong story and characters to back up your gore & debauchery. Remember, John Skipp has a new story in the one, and in Splatterpunk, there is usually a deeper subversive point to all the insanity.
