“It’s Right At Home With Tales From The Crypt And Creepshow…”
A Disgusting Supermarket of Death collects hard-boiled shorts about satanic Christmas movies, performance art euthanasia, child sacrifice skincare, and other demented goodness from Jim Harberson, co-author of Markosia’s acclaimed graphic novel, Stay Alive.
Among the characters you’ll meet within are a corrupt prison warden who sells true crime fanatics a serial killer meet and greet; healthcare workers who cause a massive car pile-up so they can murder its victims; and a Hollywood undertaker who sells rich perverts carnal access to recently-departed celebrities.
Horror tinged with comedy, or comedy tinged with horror, these stories should delight even the most jaded speculative fiction fans.
“This book of short stories comes from a unique author- part Crumb, part Heinlein, part Clive Barker. Written with a wink and a nod, this is a great introduction to the macabre. It’s right at home with Tales from the Crypt and Creepshow. It’s a fun read and worth your time!”

The whole world wants Jane Morgan DEAD!
And it’s the BEST THING that’s ever happened to her!
Hollywood starlet Jane Morgan revives her fading career by provoking a group of serial killers and then starring in Stay Alive, a reality TV show about surviving the killers’ attempts to murder her.
Jane Morgan is an actress fallen from an Oscar-nominated film debut into personal misadventures and Z-grade, T-and-A slasher flicks. Desperate to rescue her career, she provokes uKill.com. uKill is a mob justice entertainment consortium that murders whomever its web site patrons choose by popular election—literally anyone, anywhere. By spoiling the last-wish pro baseball adventure of a terminally ill child, Jane becomes uKill’s target. She parlays her calamity into a starring role on Stay Alive. It’s a reality TV show about surviving uKill’s attempts to murder her. Jane’s blood-splashed redemption path follows, populated by stalkers, assassins, and show-me-the-money allies. They include: Hank Summers, Stay Alive’s self-promoting producer who prefers good ratings to Jane’s safety; Moses Rabkin, Jane’s ex-military bodyguard (and romantic interest) who’s comically maladjusted to polite society; Nox, uKill’s plague doctor-masked, darkly-comic emcee; and Kenyon Kraft, Jane’s formerly-incarcerated and homicidal stalker, liberated by uKill to hunt her.
HORRORBUZZ says it’s “Ridiculous In All The Right Ways” and rates it “9 out of 10 Plague Doctor Masks[!]”
SCARETISSUE raves: “I REALLY enjoyed this. It’s graphic, it’s bloody, it’s silly and it’s got a super compelling story. I found myself several times thinking about how cool this story would be were it ever translated to the big screen. It would be tremendous.”
