Founded in 2017, TK Pulp is a Belfast-based independent imprint run by Trevor Kennedy, the creator of Phantasmagoria Magazine. TK Pulp specialises in handpicked, exceptional books: standout novels and short story anthologies of the horror and weird fiction variety.
Are you ready for ghastly ghosts, demons, abominations of nature, ghouls, the darkest of dark poetry, a haunted dolls' house, giant spiders, knife-wielding maniacs, the Pale Emperor, malevolent insects, zombies, 'Sandmen', visits to 1980s Northern Ireland, Victorian England and 'Isla's Island', a man who can morph into a scarecrow, aging songstress Cher doing battle with Jesus and Thor to save the space-time continuum, and a whole plethora of other unspeakable horrors?!
Welcome, friends, to Trevor Kennedy's Gruesome Grotesques Volume 2: Vampires, Werewolves and other Beautiful Monsters, a dark and twisted journey into the undocumented world of the fantastique.
Penned by a select group of diabolical creatives from right across the known world, prepare yourselves for weird tales and dark poetry concerning undead creatures of the night, lycanthropic monstrosities, necrophilia, underwater beasts, vengeful femme fatales, sexy murderous aliens, killer sheep, Lovecraftian terrors, zombies, monsters of the mind and a whole gruesome selection of other unspeakable grotesques!
Can your nerves stand the intensity of the sheer devilment ahead?!
The mystical side of the known universe. We are all interested in it. Intrigued even. The Dark Arts is something which has captivated the minds of the human race since recorded history first began. The great ancient civilisations - the Romans, the Greeks, the Egyptians - all had their tales of twisted magic, terrifying daemons of the underworlds and more. Modern man may have advanced more technologically, but deep down we still share the same fears of the unknown as our predecessors did. We have wrestled with notions of the mysteries of life for centuries now.
This compendium you hold in your hands is an international exploration of the occult, transgressing culture, class, race and creed. A collection of vivid verse and stories designed to enthral, entertain and educate in equal measure. But please be warned, our documentations are not for the faint of heart or the squeamish either.
Welcome, seeker of knowledge, and enjoy the treats we have in store for you…

A Grand Guignol for the modern age, we cackle in the face of all that is deemed good and decent as we subvert your expectations with a collection of twisted tales, vexing verse and abhorrent artwork, the result of a diabolical deal made with Old Nick himself, inked in the blood of innocents (naturally!) by a conglomerative of crazed creatives, some very well-known (infamous even!), established names, alongside their up and coming bright young familiars.
Within Trevor Kennedy’s Bad Dreams and Reflections - a Collection of Weird Horror Stories (from Dark Owl Publishing) you will discover a world of darkened shades of night and long-forgotten angles of reality where good and evil collide.
A plane of malevolence where vampiric cats, insectoid abominations, mischievous genii, demonic entities from Hell, lycanthropic freaks of nature, the sleepless dead, the foul stench of rotting ghouls, and Lovecraftian terrors coexist and stalk the twisted streets and mist-filled entries, as treacherous cursed tomes and the apocalypse wait patiently in the shadows.
Do you dare walk the roads of this forbidden wasteland of unprecedented horror?

"Dean and his publisher, Trevor Kennedy, have assembled a marvelous team of imaginers and storytellers to offer up these latest visions of Dante’s nine circles of Hell and of the human sins that lead us there. I doff my cap admiringly to Peter Mark May, to Barbie Wilde, to Allison Weir, to Katie Black, to Dean and Trevor themselves, to Tim Dry, and to Adrian Baldwin, and will now step out of their way and let them take your hand and lead you, eagerly or reluctantly, back once more into the Inferno."
