A short stories collection in which the visions of the authors guide us towards the “dark gates”, the hidden doors of unexpected hells and limbo gnawed by the blue rust of the apocalyptic and dystopian future, painted by the thick blood of horror and cannibalism, covered by the green, rotten, phosphorescent virus of the weird. The way out, sorry about this, is not allowed. Introduction by Gene O'Neill.
Una raccolta di racconti tramite i quali gli autori ci guidano attraverso gli oscuri budelli che portano alle porte nascoste di inaspettati Inferni, rosicchiate dalla ruggine azzurra di un futuro apocalittico e distopico, dipinte dal sangue denso dell'horror e del cannibalismo, ricoperte dal virus verde, marcio, fosforescente, del weird. L'uscita, siamo spiacenti, non è consentita. Prefazione di Gene O'Neill.
