The Goodreads bizarro author of the month is going strong, gang! Here are a few things being said about MURDER STORIES FOR YOUR BRAIN PIECE as folks finish up the first of two group reads of Kevin Strange books this month:
“Just finished reading and loved it. Loved the story notes after too.”
“Finished the last story in the collection: “Inside An Asshole.” Wow. That is one of the darkest and most intense pieces I’ve read. I don’t recall getting that feeling of such compelling but frightening sensations since I read all of Dennis Cooper’s work some years back. Especially in the sections where he combats the mind worms with the memories of all the awful things the Ted Bundy-like narrator has done. Such an extreme and original collection of stories, Kevin Strange. I’d have to put “Inside An Asshole” and “I Killed Jessica, Again” at an exact tie for my favorites, but I enjoyed all of them.”
“I just finished the book, it’s my first time reading anything by Kevin Strange and WOW! What a strong collection! I really enjoyed everything especially I Killed Jessica, Again and Inside an Asshole. Also those poor poor Glutoids 🙁 Hopefully you’ll write a followup where they get their revenge on the child-god.”
Pretty cool, huh? Today is the LAST day to grab MURDER STORIES and the next group reads book, co-written by bizarro-comedy master Danger Slater, STRANGER DANGER for only 99 cents. Tomorrow they jump back up to regular price! Grab em quick, and jump into the group reads threads on Goodreads to let everyone else know what you think, and ask the authors anything you want about the books.
Hey gang, welcome back to KevinTheStrange.com! We hope your holiday was full of awesome, or at least sufficiently full of enough alcohol to numb your existential nightmare. Either way, we’re back to offer you another dose of the Strange One! We promised you a hard hitting, no-holds-barred interview with Jeremy Maddox over at the Surreal Sermons podcast and boy did we deliver!
This podcast is so big, and covers so many topics in detail, it had to be cut into two parts which are both ready for your listening pleasure, and also include other larger than life Bizarro fiction personalities such as Danger Slater, Michael Allen Rose, and Kevin L. Donihe!
