Randy Chandler about my new collection of short stories THE RADIOACTIVE BRIDE (Necro Publications, January 2020) for sale at Amazon:
"Alessandro Manzetti’s Radioactive Bride might be thought of as a sort of Einstein-Rosen Bridge of genre fiction, punching apocalyptic holes in spacetime because no single genre has the scope to contain his prodigious literary talent. While the stories in his new collection echo some of the best speculative works of H. P. Lovecraft (“The Color Out of Space”), William Burroughs (The Wild Boys) and Bram Stoker (The Lair of the White Worm), they are uniquely Manzettian. William Burroughs said “language is a virus from out of space.” Alessandro Manzetti sets those viral lyrics to the music of the spheres in this mind-bending collection."
– Randy Chandler, Editor, Year’s Best Hardcore Horror

Preordina il libro sullo Store Independent Legions
Sinossi: Acri - 1084. Un ragazzo fiammingo affamato viene colto in fragrante in atti di cannibalismo. Il ricco mercante inglese Driskoll Cook lo punirà in modo esemplare, scatenando la sua feroce coppia di mastiff, cambiando per sempre la vita del ragazzo, e anche il proprio destino.
Antiochia - 1098. Le truppe crociate assediano la città. Yaghisiyan, l’Emiro selgiudico, osserva dalle mura alcuni cavalieri scavare nel cimitero, a fianco dell’accampamento, per disseppellire i corpi dei compagni, arrostirne pezzi e divorarli. Manda degli emissari a Goffredo di Buglione, a capo delle truppe crociate, per protestare contro l’antropofagia diffusa tra gli infedeli.
Nasce la leggenda dei Tafur, i diavoli viventi, i superstiti della legione degli straccioni di Pietro l’Eremita, bande di assassini, stupratori, cannibali che portano l’orrore in Terrasanta, affiancando a intermittenza gli eserciti cristiani, che li tollerano per opportunità. Un fiammingo sfregiato, Vessel, è uno dei loro capi.
Gerusalemme - 1099. L’esercito crociato guidato da Goffredo di Buglione, Tancredi D’Altavilla, Roberto di Normandia e da altri nobili sferra l’attacco decisivo alla città santa. È il giorno della presa di Gerusalemme e del massacro delle truppe egiziane e saracene e di gran parte della popolazione.
Al mattatoio partecipa anche la banda di Vessel, indossando divise crociate trafugate: Chenay, la sua donna armate di roncole, Portanero il gigante iberico collezionista di organi, Serafino, l’ex-frate psicopatico, e altri oscuri figuri. Una brigata di orrore che approfitterà dell’abbondanza di carne e sangue di quell’epica giornata per sfogare i propri istinti e predare oro e preziosi. La bandiera crociata sventola sulle torri di Gerusalemme, la battaglia è vinta e il Santo Sepolcro è finalmente in mani cristiane.
Ma gli incubi in Terrasanta continuano, guidati al galoppo da Vessel lo Sfregiato e dalle sue orde fameliche verso la prossima battaglia. La prima crociata come non è mai stata raccontata e immaginata.

Live at Horror DNA the review by Gabino Iglesias of my poetry collection 'The Place of Broken Things' written in collaboration with Linda D. Addison. (Crystal Lake Publishing, July 2019)
Excerpt from the review: (...) There is something strange about literary collaborations. Asking two writers to come together and work on something when the rest of the time they are working alone always struck me as odd. Perhaps this is why amazing collaborations are rare. Linda D. Addison and Alessandro Manzetti’s The Place of Broken Things belongs to the small group of books that make a collaboration shine. (...) Addison and Manzetti work beautifully together here because they gravitate to the same themes and wrote poems that are somewhat similar in length. Furthermore, Addison and Manzetti’s voices pull off a beautiful dance in which they come together and mesh perfectly before once again pulling apart and regaining their uniqueness. Surprisingly, even the poems in which they collaborate manage to retain a voice that, more than half-Addison/half-Manzetti, sounds more like a perfect, organic combination of both. (...) The Place of Broken Things is dark, creepy, surreal, haunting, and beautiful. In a way, it surprised me with the variety of poems it contains. However, it is also as great as I expected it to be. Addison and Manzetti are both Bram Stoker Award winners, and this collection makes it easy to see why.

Released today, from Necro Publications, my new collection of short stories THE RADIOACTIVE BRIDE, including 17 new stories (and 1 reprint). Cover art by Eric Wilson, translation from Italian by Daniele Bonfanti, editing by Regina Garza Mitchell. Buy the book at Amazon
Synopsis: Poisoned Uxor 77 radioactive meteor fucked Hearth with a big Kaboom! changing the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet. No more animal protein, no more moral values or conscience, weird and obscene mutations. The primordial spirit of cannibalism rises again from its invisible grave, walking hand in hand with old friends: Depravity and Sadism, and no one is safe anymore. Everyone is subject to a single watchword: survival at all costs. Yeah, you heard me, the ‘Radioactive Bride’ will marry you, dear future mankind, giving you a taste of her plutonium milk, turning you into exquisite prey or ravenous perpetrator.
This is a sort of diary of these days told through the lives of a few characters: new kind of freaks, half man and half worm, captured to become circus attractions; synthetic serial killers built-in labs; two-headed prostitutes offering special services to their clients; landfills with fights between women on next-gen drugs and mutated big rats; processions of new feminists who hunt for human testicles; the show of a fat lady offering viewers a succulent reason to come back (small pieces of her giant body); rich collectors of human organs; innovative restaurants and hyper-extreme brothels where pimps and celebrated chefs prepare the daily menu for their cannibal and depraved customers; the new slums of Paris, Rome and Berlin ruled by criminals; a shemale Pope with her infamous court, and a pedophile Governor watching excited, his aquariums of biomechanical, heretic creatures inside the Red Area of the New Wall.
So, strap on your seatbelt, move past moral, mercy and standard food, and get ready to be ejected at high speed towards the New World waiting for you.
"Alessandro Manzetti is for sure one of the most exciting writers to be bursting into the U.S. horror scene, and his new book sounds like a non-stop full-tilt horror party of futuristic perversion and outrage — right up my alley."
— Edward Lee, author of 'Header' and 'White Trash Gothic'
"Perverse, unholy, deranged--with THE RADIOACTIVE BRIDE, Alessandro Manzetti has created a ghastly rendition of a Post Apocalypse world whose frenzied denizens maim, mangle, and cannibalize to satisfy their obscene hungers.
Images take root in one’s mind that you’d need a lobotomy to pick to dislodge: a grotesque She-Pope who practices her skeet shooting with human clay pigeons launched from a vibrating platform; an enormous obese “virgin” with petrified testicles woven into her braids who lounges seductively while the ultra-wealthy line up to obtain, with the aid of a state of the art extractor, a souvenir of her fat; a circus ringmaster from hell ornaments his top hat with a toothed vagina .
I’d be tempted to say you can’t even imagine some of this stuff, except that Manzetti can and he has. Kudos to him for taking it to the edge—and then a good bit beyond."
— Lucy Taylor, Bram Stoker Award-Winning author of 'The Saferty of Unknown Cities'
