" . . . Gutter is the bastard child of Blue Murder . . . [I]t's profane, lewd, violent, and frequently funny. Despite its low-rent origins, it's also a nice looking package . . ."

--Graham Powell,

"The first issue of Out of the Gutter sure as hell lives up to its name. It’s 212 pages of hardcore, nuts-kicking fiction about murderers, pimps, drug dealers, whores, drunks, junkies, bent cops, born losers and other assorted scumbags . . . But that’s not all you get for your $13.50, buddy. There are joke ads for things like a 'Psychotic Bomber Kit' and the 'Charles Asshole Workout Plan.' You get fun facts about Mexican prostitution, the Russian mob and cannibal Albert Fish . . . The editors of Out of the Gutter have put together a collection of some of the nastiest crime fiction around. I can’t wait to read the next issue."

--Patrick Shawn Bagley, Hillbillies and Hitmen

"I've got to hand it to the folks at OUT OF THE GUTTER. They've put together a helluva fun package with great content."

--Nathan Cain, Independent Crime

"If you're not squeamish, this collection is as good as they come . . . across the board."

--Charlie Stella, critically acclaimed author of such novels as Jimmy Benchpress and Shakedown

"You're going to get what the cover promises. These are rough and tumble stories, and some of them hit like a fist in the face."

--Bill Crider, award-winning author and social commentator

"With but a single issue, Matthew Louis has thrown down the gauntlet, set a new standard for unflinching, deliciously dirty, exploitative tough-ass fiction . . . I can't wait to see what happens next."

--Victor Gischler, Edgar-nominated author of Gun Monkeys, Suicide Squeeze and Shotgun Opera code
