I got the kindle edition and sadly it‘s barely readable. On my tablet it doesn‘t display at all and on my kindle the script is tiny and the layout doesn‘t really lend itself to maximizing it. I gave up after a few pages. This needs a printed version.
What I did catch was‘t really my cup of tea either. I couldn‘t really make heads or tails of it, it was too abstract for me.
Re-released and expanded into 32 pages by Arson Press in 2021, Horrific Punctuation is where commas scratch poisoned marks in blood on oblivion, Thor makes an enthusiastic appearance! shotguns make dark holes to mark the end…or maybe the beginning of something new. Zombies, harpies, Odin, Schrödinger’s cat, Hermes, yetis, the Loch Ness Monster, and more nightmares are here to remind you that while punctuation can be bad, sometimes it is horrific.

It sounds like a potentially interesting idea. Too bad it doesn’t display well on Kindle.

I think half of the attraction of this one is the layout of the words on the page. So really, a printed edition would be the thing…
