I received a copy of Son Of A Bitch from Deadite Press and was instantly intrigued because when it comes to splatterpunk Wrath James White is a legend and then you have Andre Duza who is a bizarro author. I had high hopes for this one just from the blurb alone. Anyone who reads either of these genres needs to buy this book.

The book itself is a mere 86 pages long but it wastes no time throwing you into the action. As you would expect the story is a well done bizarro/splatterpunk novella that sho

REVIEWED: Son of a Bitch
WRITTEN BY: Wrath James White and Andre Duza
PUBLISHED: July, 2012

Intense, foul-mouthed, hard-punching, and wild, this story really is about the son of a bitch. The descriptively-named character is born half demon/ half canine, splitting his dog mother open at birth. Fused with Cuban black magic and the spirit of a local hitman, Warlock, the dog/ monster, goes on a murderous rampage, followed by the hood, Demitrius, who breeds dogs and is witness to the dog joining with Wa

The book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

I'm quite a fan of Wrath James White, even when he slightly misses the mark I usually still enjoy his work. I still enjoyed parts of this book but for me it was very clear that two authors wrote it. The story therefore felt really clunky with the different writing styles, they simply didn't gel.

Another issue was the humour used in the book, it just didn't work, at all! One particular reason I enjoy reading WJW is that he uses his work as

Just a silly tale of a dog that gives birth to a dog/human/demon hybrid.

WJW is clearly having fun here. Not a lot of staying power though.

Aw, who's a cute wittle puppy? Who's a coot wittew puppy? Who's a...AH! AH! AH!

Son of a Bitch is a collaborative work by Andre Duza and Wrath James White and recently published by Deadite Press, the horror imprint of Eraserhead Press. The story is simple: A creature who is part demon and part dog is born and wreaks havoc, particularly after it is possessed by the soul of a hitman. The book is bloody and gory, nearly to excess, but it is a horror novel, so as long as don't mind huge amounts of bl

I waited forever for this one! And really the wait was well worth it. Sideshow puts outs quality product after quality product and their limited edition are a thing to behold. So onto the show...

And damn what a fine show it is! Picture your favorite creature feature dripped as black ink on white paper that ends up leaving a joyride of fiction. Some demented Euro sleaze tinged with American Grindhouse ethos and what you got is Son of a Bitch!

After having read it, like Wrath's other collaboration

Demitrius breeds dogs – dangerous dogs for dangerous people. These are not yappy little dogs or show dogs. What the people use the dogs for after they are sold is of no interest to him. His problems start when he gets a pang of conscience after hearing that a dog he sold to a Cuban family, Sheba, is being used in some kind of demonic ritual. He arrives at the scene just as the priest has finished having his way with the dog in front of his fellow acolytes. He brings the dog back after rescuing h ...more

The title of this book is definitely eye catching and outrageous and the story inside lives up to these expectations.

Son of a Bitch is the story of Demetrius, a dog breeder, who routinely breeds dogs for drug dealers and dog fighters. This time however Demetrius sold one of his dogs to the wrong family. Through some black magic and bad luck a monster is born; half demon, half dog all vicious killing machine. After several mishaps the soul of a cold blooded hit-man is transferred into the monster

I was given a copy of this book from deadite press in exchange for a review. I was excited to see it in my mail box since I am a big fan of wrath James white and had been watching for a good price on it for a little while now. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the story much, I have never read anything from the co author but his writing stood out plain as day and there was no wondering who wrote what parts, the biggest flaw in my eyes was the completely off humor. I could tell when I was supposed to ...more

Interesting foray into the world of Bizarro Fiction for the amazing Wrath James White. If you have not read anything by him before, be warned, his work is elegant in an extremely graphic way. Andre Duza seems to keep up with the gore, and gross out levels that build to new heights. The book itself has a disclaimer of NC17. while I don't agree with that, I do agree you need a stomach of steel to read this one.

If you want an entertaining book that reads like an urban Dead Alive-esque horror comedy, you should definitely pick up Son of a Bitch.

I am not sure I actually want to read this (the dog fighting part), but the cover is amazing!
