We all know horror. It’s in our face every day. You can try to negotiate the nightmare but total chaos and destruction is just one button-push away.
In this intensely personal collection of short stories, screenplays, and essays, horror legend John Skipp walks you through the light and the dark with an unflinching eye. Revealing both the best and worst of us, one laugh and scream at a time.
“Startlingly honest, refreshingly revealing, funny, freaky, upsetting, unsettling. His best yet.”Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box
“John Skipp is still splatterpunk, knocking your teeth out to a hard and heavy beat. But he’s also a goddamn hippie trying to levitate the Pentagon with the power of his words and as you read him, sometimes you could swear it’s working. In the war to keep our hearts alive in this heartbreaking world, Don’t Push the Button is the essential treatise of our pal in the trenches.”Laura Lee Bahr, author of Haunt
“DON’T PUSH THE BUTTON is John Skipp at his very finest. Funny, scary, weird AF, and always surprising. Very highly recommended!”Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of Ink and V-WARS
It ain’t pretty. But it’s beautiful. Once you go all the way.
