Bizarro Horror Fiction Author MP Johnson | Freak Tension Zine

Information about writer MP Johnson's horror fiction and bizarro fiction, Freak Tension zine and more.

Last year, I read a story called “Groupie” to a rowdy crowd at the Eagle’s Club in Green Bay. About halfway through the piece, a girl in the front row covered her mouth and ran for the exit, looking all pukey. After my reading, she came up to me and told me that she just couldn’t stay and listen to the whole thing. She was too grossed out. Then she said, “I will never forget that for the rest of my life.” That’s the sort of reaction that really warms my little heart.

“Groupie” is now available in Strange Sex 2: The Second Cumming from StrangeHouse Books.

Strange Sex 2: The Second Cumming

This is the third StrangeHouse anthology I’ve appeared in, after Strange Fucking Stories and A Very StrangeHous Christmas. I doubt it will be the last. I love what Kevin Strange and his crew are doing. They’ve developed their own sick and twisted personality that is unlike any other bizarro or horror publisher out there, and I think a lot of my stories fit in well.

Flashback Weekend Was A Blast!

Last weekend, I set up my table and sold books at Flashback Weekend. The cool as hell Eric Hendrixson, author of Bucket of Face from Eraserhead Press, volunteered to be my table buddy. It was his first horror convention! I also got to meet fellow StrangeHouse Books luminaries John Bruni (Tales of Questionable Taste) and Brian Williamson. And I scored a bunch of unopened packs of Cyndi Lauper trading cards circa 1985.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table and bought books or just nerded out with me.

    I love the SHB anthologies, and they’re always so much fun to review! I don’t get many opportunities to post pictures of Elmo about to get ass raped by S&M Ken!

    Will there ever be a con in Detroit, or is that the one thing all you horror writers are afraid of?

      I would go to a con in Detroit. I’m pretty sure Chicago and Indianapolis are hoarding all the Midwest conventions. Wisconsin doesn’t even have one. Minneapolis has one, thankfully.
