Night Stockers by Kristopher Triana & Ryan Harding
The employees of the Freshway grocery store aren’t too happy about having to do an overnight shift, but they’re about to be even unhappier. Their rival store, Devil’s Food, is about to lay siege upon them with extreme prejudice. This is no ordinary grocery chain. Devil’s Food is run by a cult of murderous Satanists committed to killing the competition—literally.
Armed with hatchets, knives, maces and motorcycles, they enter the store and start picking off their victims in the most ghastly and depraved ways possible. The Freshway’s only chance of survival is to fight, and this leads to a bloody battle royal of crazed cashiers, knife-wielding demo ladies, brutal butchers, and teenage clerks determined to make their favorite death metal albums come true.
The Night Stockers is a gory horror comedy by Splatterpunk Award-Winning authors Kristopher Triana and Ryan Harding, the men who brought you Full Brutal and Genital Grinder. Filled with bone-crushing carnage and the heaviest metal, this one promises customer satisfaction.

Fresh Food and Fresh Cadavers At Freshway
It's Clerks meets Assault On Precinct 13. It's Intruder meets The Warriors. It's Dawn of the Dead meets Rosemary's Baby. It's none of those things because it's altogether too original to be classified that easily. I'm talking about The Night Stockers by Triana and Harding, a true masterpiece of absurdity and gore. Freshway is struggling now that Devil's Food has opened up across the road, stealing customers as well as some of the staff. In a desperate, albeit transparently futile, attempt to combat the erosion of the bottom line, Todd demands that most of this Freshway staff work an unexpected overnight shift for deep cleaning and stocking. A miserable night is soon to become altogether worse as the Freshway staff learns that competition between grocery stores can not only be fierce, it can be deadly. It stands to reason something like that would have to happen when the Devil's Food chain is owned and operated by Satan. Fueled by a desire to live up to the expectation of his dark lord--and his petty impulse to seek vengeance against the Freshway manager who helped drive him to the dark embrace of Devil's Food--Desmond decides he and his staff will be destroying the competition. Of course, even with Satan on his side, Desmond and his crew of miscreants might have a bit more on their plate than he could anticipate. Equal parts an homage to death metal of the late 80s and early 90s and the early days of splatterpunk horror, the authors create a world that feels entirely real so that they can do the most unreal and unspeakable things to the people populating that world. Drawing from their own experiences working in retail during that period as well as their lasting appreciation for the music that finds itself repeatedly referenced throughout the narrative, Triana and Harding successfully bring the world of Freshway to life--for the express purpose of converting it into a funhouse of death and dismemberment. Filled to the brim with graphic sex and violence, often in tandem, The Night Stockers becomes a barrage of viscera and perverse humor that remains constant from the first to the final page.
Between all the death metal references, the 90’s nostalgia, and more creative kills than you could imagine, this book is insane. No longer will I look at a frozen turkey or a manual can opener the same way. I put off all my weekend chores in order to finish this book, I just couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend it for anyone that likes high kill counts and hates customer service jobs.
I wanna be Ruby when I grow up.. That was just gore galore and I loved it.. Filled with plenty of 90’s nostalgia and some laugh out loud moments (for me anyway). Two grocery stores go to war in the most vicious of ways. There were a few moments that made me wince but that just made me like it more.. Drills, meat hooks and chainsaws you'll understand when you read it..
So much fun!!
This book was so much crazy fun, I couldn't put it down! From the awesome slice of brutalness that was the opening chapter, through to the more and more brutal build up to a deliciously bloody end! I loved all the music and film references! There are so many awesome and inventive messed up kills that this seriously needs to be made into a movie!!!! I need to see that shit! In my opinion, if a book can make you grimace out loud, it's well worth reading, and in this case, it had me grimacing and roaring with laughter at the same time, so it's a definite winner!!!
Triana & Harding Kill the Competition!
First off I would like to say a very special thank you to Drew Stepek, owner of Godless Horrors, for letting me have the privilege of being a part of The Godless Hype Horde. I also would like to thank K Trap Jones of The Evil Cookie Publishing, my fellow Hype Horde companions, and of course Triana and Harding for a freaking amazing ride. The Night Stockers is a brilliant, unique, and perfectly executed maddening melee maelstrom of a Splatterpunk novel! The plot is woven in a fine manner with so much ‘90s culture thrown in it is a blast. Triana and Harding collaborated amazingly, and in my opinion knocked this out of the park! Devil’s Food v. Freshway begins, and it is a never ending madness of blood, gore, and dark humor. Triana and Harding keep you redlined for the rest of the book, and they do not take their foot off the pedal! Who will come out on top? Who will live to see another day? Who will be left for cleanup on aisle 666? I really could not put this down, and I blazed through the pages. The characters are so well written, and I grew attached to some and loathed others. It was a waiting game of pins and needles to see if my favored choices would live or die. I did not have this one figured out at ALL! The ending was pure satisfaction. I give TNS 5 bloody stars out of 5 stars! I loved every minute, couldn’t put it down, and I was satisfied at the end. I didn’t feel left hanging or wanting more, but I’ll take more.
