The Craziest hardcore horror shit available without a prescription ... Available in PRINT!

Three cuts of bizarre hardcore horror from the macabre mind of the grim Reverend Rage. Three sordid tales of demons, revenge, botched suicide, organic narcotics, torture, halflings, freaks, vampires and a post apocalyptic society coming apart at its seams. Three trips to the dark side that'll leave you reeling... yet unable to look away.

Worth getting your hands dirty for!, Rage forces us to look at true sin, true villainy, and truly offensive images of alternative realities. ----J. Aguilera "MLA, Professional reviewer, writ...

Note: This book contains graphic violence, illicit drug use, non-consensual extreme sex, and potentially offensive material given the religious references. Through the sheer shock of his presentation of Short Stories and Novel Excerpts, Rage Primer forces readers to consider the alternatives, to look at the garbage in the streets, to see what is swept into the gutters at night right before all decent people awake to see another cleaned up version of the day.

Re-written from "PILATE" in the re-incarnated vampire's POV. Printed using a scroll-like Papyrus font and stylized into free-form Bible Verse, this is where is where the Brutal Bible Tales truly begins: Pontius Pilate is cursed to be a vampire: Life after life after life.

Through the sheer shock of his presentation, Rage forces readers to consider the alternatives, to look at the garbage in the streets, to see what is swept into the gutters at night right before all decent people awake to see another cleaned up version of the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another visit to the Harbor…, October 24, 2010
By Ray Dittmeier
This review is from: The Place In Between (Paperback)
This is my third Steven Rage book, and I’m going to admit that I always have a hard time trying to figure out what to say about his work. The stories, the characters, the world it all takes place in–everything’s so intense that it becomes difficult to figure out what elements to grab onto.

Okay, so, with that out of the way… With this new one, The Place in Between, Rage gives us three stories. Two return us to The Harbor, a dark, gritty world full of sex, violence, greed, cruelty, exotic drugs dealt by vampire dealers, people trying to screw one another over, and anything else you might expect to go hand-in-hand with all that. At first glance, this world seems comfortably far from our own, but on reflection, it appears uncomfortably close. To my mind, The Harbor (rather than the characters or the stories) is the focal point. It’s more than a setting or even a character of sorts. It’s a worldview (and one I can only hope is not the sum total of Rage’s own real-life worldview).

The title story goes outside The Harbor and gives us a look at Del, a man who, when confronted with evidence that his wife was cheating, unsuccessfully attempts suicide and ends up confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak or even breathe on his own. And then he’s released to the care of his cheating wife and her lover. To the outside world, they’re a devoted wife and good friend. Privately, they taunt, torment and torture the helpless Del–until a demon shows up to help him. Ah, but it’s not quite that simple: Rage starts the story out with the Euripides quote, “The gods visit the sins of the fathers upon the children.” And Rage weaves this theme into the characters’ backstories, giving the story an extra dimension.

If you’re already a Rage fan, this is a worthy addition to your collection. If you’re not, I think it would be a good starting point–but only on a day when you’re ready to be adventurous and deal with something that might come across as a bit confrontational.
