The Night Stockers
Kristopher Triana and Ryan Harding
—2021 Splatterpunk Award Nominated—
ATTENTION SHOPPERS! 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
”Joining Ryan Harding with Kristopher Triana as a writing team is like smacking two pieces of uranium together REAL HARD. The resultant mushroom cloud will produce works such as THE NIGHT STOCKERS, a literary Niagara Falls of irredeemably explicit violence and full-thrust working-class diabolism with a very new twist: a SATANIC GROCERY STORE. It’s hard to get more original than this, or more outrageous, or just more WRONG! Here’s a line to give you the gist: “In the land of the pig, the butcher is king.” This is top-of-the-line hardcore horror and a wonderfully nauseating way to start a new year!” —Edward Lee, author of WHITE TRASH GOTHIC andHEADER
“From the Prologue to the Epilogue, Kristopher Triana and Ryan Harding’s THE NIGHT STOCKERS is an evil, carnal-and-carnage-laden trip that never lets up. Only Harding and Triana could take your local supermarket and turn it into a slaughterhouse, turning a grocery store into a GORE-cery store—and that’s only the venue!” —Jeremy Wagner, author of RABID HEART and guitarist of BROKEN HOPE
