FOR THE DUNGEONS & DRAGONS NERD
ARE YOU READY TO PLAY SOME DUNGEONS AND FUCKING DRAGONS?
The Kobold Wizard’s Dildo of Enlightenment +2 is an absurd comedy about a group of adventurers (elf, halfling, bard, dwarf, assassin, thief) going through an existential crisis after having discovered that they are really just pre-rolled characters living inside of a classic AD&D role playing game.

FOR THE WEIRD HORROR FAN

It’s prom night at a school are built with secret passageways, where rebellious teens get zippers installed in their mouths and genitals, and once a year, on that special night, one couple is slaughtered and the bits of their bodies are kept as souvenirs. But something’s gone terribly wrong at Corundum High, where the secret killer is claiming a far higher body count than usual . . . Slaughterhouse High is Robert Devereaux’s slicing satire of sex, death, and public education.
Apeshit by Carlton Mellick III

FOR THE VEGAN PUNK
The Vegan Revolution…with Zombies by David Agranoff
Presenting Stress Free Food! Animal suffering is a thing of the past. Hipsters can now enjoy bacon without guilt. Thanks to a new miracle drug the cute little pig no longer feels a thing as she is led to the slaughter. The only problem? Once the drug enters the food supply anyone who eats it is infected. From fast food burgers to free-range organic eggs, eating animal products turns people into shambling brain-dead zombies – not even vegetarians are safe! In Portland, Oregon, vegans, freegans, abolitionists, hardliners and raw fooders have holed up in Food Fight, one of the country’s premier vegan grocery stores at the vegan mini-mall. There they must prepare for their final battle to take back the city from the hordes of roaming undead. Will vegans filet the flesh-eaters or will they become zombie chow? When there’s no more meat in hell, the vegans will walk the earth.

But André would never eat his dear friend Louis. Andre only eats millionaires! Over a five star French meal of fine wine, organic vegetables and human flesh, a lunatic delivers a witty, chilling, disturbingly sane argument in favor of eating the rich. It’s a darkly hilarious dessert to Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma and Foer’s Eating Animals-a tale of good and evil, of rich and poor, of manners, madness and meat.
FOR THE WESTERN LOVER
Fistful of Feet by Jordan Krall
A bizarro tribute to Spaghetti westerns, H.P. Lovecraft, and foot fetish enthusiasts.
Featuring Cthulhu-worshipping Indians, a woman with four feet, a Giallo-esque serial killer, a crazed gunman who is obsessed with sucking on candy, Syphilis-ridden mutants, ass juice, burping pistols, sexually transmitted tattoos, and a house devoted to the freakiest fetishes, Jordan Krall’s Fistful of Feet is the weirdest western ever written.
FOR THE HUMOR LOVER
Help! A Bear Is Eating Me! by Mykle Hansen
One of Eraserhead Press’s all time best sellers. A laugh-out-loud tale of a man being eaten by a bear.

The real story of Thanksgiving. Mutant ninjas, a talking whale, kung-fu masters, maniacal Pilgrims and an alcoholic clown populate Chris Genoa’s surreal, darkly comical and unnerving reimagining of the first Thanksgiving.

FOR THE PUNK KID
Super Giant Monster Time by Jeff Burk
Will you escape the giant monsters that are rampaging the fuck out of your city?
Aliens are invading the Earth and their ray guns turn people into violent punk rockers. At the same time, the city is being overtaken by giant monsters tougher than Godzilla and Mothra combined. You can choose to be a lone scientist trapped in a secret government lab on a remote island swarming with monstrous killer insects, a badass punk rock chick with a green mohawk caught in a bar room brawl as the city goes up in flames around her, or a desk jockey forced to endure tedious office duties while his building is being attacked by a gargantuan centipede with claws the size of sports utility vehicles. Which character will you become? Choose from over 50 different endings and shit.
Punk Land by Carlton Mellick III
A completely retarded tribute to Kurt Vonnegut’s BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS, for punks.
There are many different places you can go to after you die. One such place is PUNK LAND, the punk version of Heaven. It is an anarchist’s utopia of independence and individuality, where the parties are wild and the music is fierce, where everyone is allowed to be whoever they want to be… or, at least, that’s how it was in the beginning. Now, something is different about Punk Land. It doesn’t seem to be the same place anymore. Perhaps it’s the new punk handbook that everyone must follow, which explains what is punk and what isn’t. Or maybe it’s the introduction of the punk point system, where every citizen must retain a certain number of punk points or lose their citizenship. It could be the organization of the Punk Police, which enforces punk behavior and mohawk size. Or there might just be something wrong with the Punk Council, the new corporate government of Punk land. Either way, Punk Land just doesn’t seem to be very punk anymore…
FOR THE JUGGALO
The Cannibals of Candyland by Carlton Mellick III
Well, no, not really. But everytime I sell this book at a fan convention the juggalos are always drawn to it.
An erotic horror novel set in Candyland, like a mixture of Clive Barker and Willy Wonka.
There exists a race of cannibals who are made out of candy. They live in an underground world filled with lollipop forests and gumdrop goblins. During the day, while you are away at work, they come above ground and prowl our streets for food. Their prey: your children. They lure young boys and girls to them with their sweet scent and bright colorful candy coating, then rip them apart with razor sharp teeth and claws.
FOR THE ROMANTIC
Zerostrata by Andersen Prunty
Like Terry Gilliam at his most surreal, directing a re-imagination of Hansel and Gretel.
Hansel’s life is changed forever when he meets Gretel, a free-spirited woman who runs naked through the woods every night. She teaches him about a world of magic and beauty. They travel to the moon together via a rope ladder, sail back to earth in an air balloon, and wander through a graveyard that allows them to view the dreams of the dead all while trying to escape Gretel’s evil Grandmother.
The Egg Man by Carlton Mellick III
It is a survival of the fittest world where humans reproduce like insects, children are the property of corporations, and having a ten-foot tall brain is a grotesque sexual fetish.
Lincoln has just been released into the world by the Georges Organization, a corporation that raises creative types. A Smell, he has little prospect of succeeding as a visual artist. But after he moves into the Henry Building, he meets Luci, the weird and grimy girl who lives across the hall. She is a Sight. She is also the most disgusting woman Lincoln has ever met. Little does he know, she will soon become his muse.
FOR THE CHILDREN
The Faggiest Vampire by Carlton Mellick III
An illustrated children’s tale reminiscent of the works of Edward Gorey and Roald Dahl, for both children and adults.
Deep in The Land of Broodsarrow, just outside the village of Gneirwil, and high on a cliff overlooking the Everbleed Sea, there stands the faggiest gothic castle that any mortal being has ever seen. Living in this ancient faggy castle is none other than the well-renowned vampire, Dargoth Van Gloomfang. The citizenry of Broodsarrow sure has its share of faggy vampires, but old Dargoth has always been by far the faggiest of them all. That is, until a new vampire came to town. A younger, hippper vampire. One that emits such a grand amount of fagginess that one cannot help but be completely overwhelmed by his presence. Now Dargoth Van Gloomfang must figure out a way to out-shine this young newcomer if he wishes to ever reclaim his throne as… the faggiest vampire.
FOR THE COMIC BOOK GEEK
A Hundred Horrible Sorrows of Ogner Stump by Andrew Goldfarb
Goldfarb’s acclaimed comic series, A Hundred Horrible Sorrows of Ogner Stump, is a magical and weird journey into the horrors of everyday life. Join Ogner Stump and his amorphous companion Slub Glub as they encounter demonic hot rods, voodoo tentacles, swamp witches, psychopathic surgeons, nightmarish landlords, door-to-door coffin salesmen, and the Green Fairy.
From ritual human sacrifice to the moon’s anus, they find despair, misery, and wonder in nearly everything. There is a moral lesson to be learned in each story. There must be. Andrew Goldfarb’s surreal vision is one of shadowy desperadoes and haunted love affairs, all set within a darkly antique universe. Sure to delight fans of Terry Gilliam, Harvey Pekar, and Frank Zappa.
