Douglas J. Ogurek
Douglas J. Ogurek is an inventive, unconventional writer whose work mystifies and amazes in equal measure.” – Andrew Hook, award-winning editor, and author of The Immortalists, And God Created Zombies, and Nitrospective
Douglas J. Ogurek is the pseudonym for a writer living somewhere on Earth. Though banned on Mars, his fiction appears in over 40 Earth publications. Ogurek founded the controversial literary subgenre known as unsplatterpunk, which uses splatterpunk conventions (e.g., extreme violence, gore, taboo subject matter) to deliver a positive message. Recently, Ogurek guest edited Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction #58: UNSPLATTERPUNK!, the first ever unsplatterpunk anthology. He also reviews films at that same magazine.
