Slob and The Slob are two extreme or splatterpunk horror books published at either end of the subgenre’s timeline. There is a lot to say about these two extreme books that clearly come from two ends of the splatter spectrum!
The Slob by Aron Beauregard from 2021 https://amzn.to/3EZswtY
Slob by Rex Miller in 1986 https://amzn.to/3s8JuSU
Note that Slob is not easy to find. I was lucky to find one for under 10 dollars at Thrift Books.
Both have elements of extreme, dark, and gory horror fiction. Your content advisory of choice can guide you past brutal scenes, bodily violence, gender-based violence, morally questionable ideas, and elements often found in very dark horror.
