Hybrid Moments: A Literary Tribute to The Misfits Edited by Sam Richard
You know the songs. They're etched into every punk's brain. Not just because they're catchy, but because there's something else there. Glenn Danzig's lyrics evoke intense imagery. Beautiful, dark, monstery imagery. There's poetry between the whoa-oh-ohs. There are stories in those songs. They just need to be told.
Now, underground fiction's most talented fiends have created a series of tales inspired by the Misfits. In these pages, an astro zombie contemplates the life she left behind as she goes into flesh-ripping battle. A team of organ harvesters shows just how violent the world can be. A wannabe true crime reporter goes on a grisly road trip that takes him a little too close to his subject matter. A mysterious set of skulls pushes a young woman to create a collection of her very own. A teenager from mars excavates the fetid product of his earthly lust.
These new twists on the songs you love are sure to surprise, startle, sicken and force you to see this timeless horror punk in a completely different light.
