Too Soon?

With mass shootings increasing in frequency, I wonder if Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It was a bit too soon.

What do I mean?

One of my favorite stories in the collection is about a fictional Mr. Deadman (need to stress that for legal reasons) that talks a basement dwelling incel into shooting up a school.

Now, hold on before you rage quit this post. The story has a twist at the end. A nice pay off that makes things nice.

But this is not the first time Deadman’s Tome has published controversial material. A few years back, we featured a story about a girl that rampaged through a school, leaving behind a trail of dead bodies.

That story is called A Corpse Can’t Laugh by Salem Martin and G. B. Holly

We received negative responses about that story back then, and that leaves me to believe that it is only a matter of time before the soccer moms start coming out of theeir vans for this one.

But let me ask you, what do you think?

Did Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It go too far, or not far enough?

Check it out for yourself and leave a comment below.

Mr Deadman Made Me Do It?

Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It (Logo)

I stopped at a truck stop to take drain the lizard. Nothing that would normally be noteworthy, right? But while standing at the urinal, I saw something that caught my eye. A phrase etched into the wall that read “Mr Deadman Made Me Do It”. Was this referencing the song “Turn Me On, Mr. Deadman” or was this in reference to Deadman’s Tome?

What if the phrase wasn’t referencing either, but something else, something much darker and more obscure?

I still don’t know the answer to that, but I was inspired to have some fun with it. I called for stories themed around the idea of a Mr. Deadman causing people to go mad and do horrible, monstrous things, and boy did people deliver. While the issue is shorter than most, rocking eight short stories, the content serves the cover well!

This brutal issue is available in paperback and for kindle

Why take my word for it when you can look inside for yourself?
