In the 1980s, the new movement in horror was splatterpunk. One of the founders of that movement was a young gun named John Skipp. With books like The Light at the End, written with Craig Spector, Skipp established himself as a powerful new voice in horror. From official release/information:
Book Description: IT'S THE DEGRADEST SHOW ON EARTH! It's closing time at a backwoods strip club, somewhere in America. Business as usual, until an elegant stranger comes onto the scene: chumming the waters with a briefcase full of cash, and a dark agenda all his own. Because he is no mere human being. He is a walking repository for all of the anger and hate that men and women feel toward each other. And every scum-soaked dollar he hands out only serves to up the voltage on the war between the sexes. The have and have-nots. The lovers and the haters.
The result is a blood-soaked, horny and horrifying monster-bash - THE DEGRADEST SHOW ON EARTH - that builds to a shocking and soul-stopping grand finale.
