Weirdpunk Books publishes horror, science fiction and bizarro fiction that contains strong elements of punk rock. Our books include Blood for You: A Literary Tribute to GG Allin, Hybrid Moments: A Literary Tribute to the Misfits and Zombie Punks Fuck Off.
I remember coming across a post about Blood for You: A Literary Tribute to GG Allin and thinking, what the fuck? Who on earth would conceive of such a book? Well, Sam Richard would, and he followed that up with Hybrid Moments: A Literary Tribute to the Misfits. That book is currently resting to the left of my laptop and contains fifteen tales by Richard himself, MP Johnson/Emma Alice Johnson (Nails, Dungeons & Drag Queens), and Ross Peterson (who appeared in an anthology I published, To Be One With You: An Anthology of Parasitic Horror), among many others. Even if you’re not a Misfits fan (who hurt you?), this is a killer collection.
Following that, Weirdpunk released Zombie Punks Fuck Off. Punks versus Zombies. A whole book of that, can you dig it?
We’ve been hearing forever that Punk is Dead. And zombie stories are even deader. ZOMBIE PUNKS FUCK OFF is here to show that is bullshit. This antho is loaded with 14 stories of gnawing teeth, shredded entrails, rotting masses, punk as fuck fury, post-punk weirdness, and beautiful decay. Within these pages are a touring Christian Punk band run afoul of a horde of living dead, a group of zombie-infected anarcho-punks staging a revolution in London, Hank William’s far-distant great-grandson struggling against the restraints of universal fame, and guitars that gently eat.
Where does Weirdpunk go after that? Cronenberg country, naturally. Weirdpunk currently has an open submission call, which closes on March 31st, for The New Flesh: A Literary Tribute to David Cronenberg. Are you excited? I’m excited. As a fellow indie publisher with similar tastes, I’ve quickly developed a real fondness for the work Weirdpunk is doing.
