I’m glad you came over to see the latest happenings at Afterbirth Books! After a slow fall and winter, we’ve exploded with several new titles for your reading pleasure.
New books now available!
- Super Cell Anemia by duncan b. barlow. As I had announced before, this book was used as a textbook for a fiction workshop at Brown University. It’s been available for a little while, but I hadn’t had a chance to remind you it’s time for you to order it. Check out the adventures of this unfortunate character who shocks himself unless he is biting down on copper strips.
- Cocoon of Terror by Jason Earls. The evil artist, Zelian, is creating a masterpiece that will trigger a supernatural disaster…his Cocoon of Terror! He doesn’t use the typical sculpting materials…no, his choice is decapitated corpses. Sound like fun? Only his former student, Trey, has a chance to stop this most lethal work of art ever conceived. It’s here in our office to order now!
- Mother Puncher by Gina Ranalli. Yes, Gina has written another in her group of absurd novellas. How could she possibly write something to follow the woman who fell in love with a wall (in Wall of Kiss)? Well, how about with a man whose job is to give new mothers a punch (and not the fruit kind)…? It’s just the latest in the government’s attempts to control the population. But, it apparently doesn’t deter everyone! Available next week from us or the usual sources.
Our books are now carried at Horror Mall!
We are so excited to announce that all of our titles are now available to you over at Horror Mall. Larry and the crew over there have stepped into a void and created a terrific site where you can peruse a wide variety of horror books—and they’ve agreed to provide our bizarro books a home as well. Look for our publisher listing. Please support them by visiting their site often.
Don’t forget to visit Bizarro Central
- Come over for a taste of all things bizarro…including forums, bios, articles, and the like. Updated frequently! Bookmark the address at www.bizarrocentral.com
- The Bizarro Starter Kit (Blue) is now available! It contains stories from Afterbirth authors Christian TeBordo, Ray Fracalossy, and Bradley Sands, as well as from other bizarros Eckhard Gerdes, Steve Aylett, Jordan Krall, Andersen Prunty, and others. You can order it in the usual places, but you’ll get a deal on the Bizarro Central site: BOTH kits (Blue plus Orange) for $13, if you haven’t got either one yet. These amazing samplers will help you decide which of the bizarro authors you want to read more of next.
I have a few contracts in the works…and hope to announce them to you soon, so stay tuned! Happy summer, everyone! Remember to take the time to do something totally bizarre at least once a day.
