Puppet Skin, the latest book from bizarro humorist Danger Slater, has just been released by Fungasm Press! Fungasm is an imprint of high quality weirdness, and Danger Slater is one of the funniest weirdos in the scene right now. See for yourself by getting a copy right now.
Hannah graduates from middle school on Friday. That’s the day she transforms into a living puppet, like her parents and teachers before her. No longer a human girl made of flesh and feelings, but a perfect wooden new self, whose strings lead up from her limbs into an endless black void above. With no pain. No sorrow. No sickness. No fear.
But Hannah has begun to suspect that something is very, very wrong. And in a world where emotion is treated like a disease, and unknown terrors lurk inside everyone, just keeping your soul alive past childhood might be the greatest challenge of all.

“An innovative circus show of all things weird and wonderful…[Puppet Skin is] The Catcher in the Rye meets Saw in a borderline dystopian fairytale gone wrong.” – CULTURED VULTURES
“Bizarro horror at it’s best!” – SPLATTERPUNK ZINE
“Danger Slater is fearless, and should be ashamed of himself. Thank God he’s not.” – JOSH MALERMAN, author of Bird Box
“Slater has taken Bizarro fiction to the next level.” – DIRGE MAGAZINE
