Shockism is a type of zine poetry and prose that is built on the work of Charles Bukowski and Todd Moore. It is noted for its gritty realism. It is often violent, matter-of-fact, and hard. Yet in the best there is a redeeming quality to the harshness. Three of the best zinesters in this style are Robert W. Howington, Kevin E. White also known as Weasel Boy, and William Bryan Massey III. Shockism got its name from an article in Musea by Tom Hendricks.
