"Other People" at Disenthralled

Got a bizarro piece up at Disenthralled, "Other People." 

Here's a little bit from it: "I am a person of my word. This is something other people need to know about me. If I give my word, I do not go back on it. Unless I have a good reason to. Or I feel like it. Then I go back on my word very quickly."

the kind of friends who murder each other

Huge thanks to Mike Monson for this very sharp review of my book. He points out that it's the kind of book for people who like to read about bad shit going down--that's the kind of thing that makes you laugh makes you giddy. You're that kind of person, this is your book.

I'm not much at promotion, but you can buy a cheap paperback here or go to Smashwords for the free version (link over there on the sidebar -->).

DangerRAMA by Danger Slater

Danger Slater's latest collection of three bizarro novellas is both wildly entertaining and intensely thoughtful.

My favorite of the bunch is "Knights of the White Castle." A mad scientist, recently fired from his job as a middle school science teacher, is taking a little breather from all that mad science to chow down some square burgers. But his detour ends up being apocalyptic when a gap is ripped in the space-time continuum (or something). I think Danger uses this as a vehicle to drop his characters into as much weird stuff as he can think of--including having Abraham Lincoln get to third base with Hitler and, of course, a defecating sky.

Each of these stories involves a surreal journey in which the characters are forced to ponder the big questions in life: Is saving humans worth sacrificing humanity? Are we making concious decisions or just following a track that someone else has set for us? If my hand becomes detached from my body and becomes personish, is sex with it/him still masturbation, gay, or something else?

Yeah, I could read this stuff all day.

At Beat to a Pulp

Charles Gramlish has two poems and a piece of prose-poetry that are just devastatingly good over at Beat to a Pulp.
