Extreme horror author David L. Tamarin is kicking off the new year with the release of two new books: This Book Hates You, a dark short story collection, and Hurting My Toys: Spiritual Suicide, a nihilistic horror novel.
This Book Hates You is an extreme collection of brutality, violence, and black humor, including a story that was originally banned by Amazon Kindle. Hurting My Toys: Spiritual Suicide follows a schizophrenic torturer who believes he will become God after he has killed enough people.
“The stories in This Book Hates You were written over a period of ten years and represent my best, most brutal writing during that time,” explains Tamarin (pictured above). “Hurting My Toys is an act of war waged by the writer against his readers. It is a traumatic, shocking festival of cruelty and tortured innocence.”
You can check out the artwork and synopses for both books below. This Book Hates You is available in paperback and e-book through Radiation Sickness Press from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Hurting My Toys: Spiritual Suicide, which features a cover illustrated by Andrey Iskanov, director of the controversial Philosophy of a Knife, is available as an e-book via Comet Press from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Scribd.
