Readers recommend Night of the Assholes by Kevin L. Donihe. This humorous parody is the perfect book for horror fans curious about exploring the bizarro fiction genre.
"The Assholes are coming to get you, Barbara . . . From Wonderland Award Winner Kevin L. Donihe, comes a hilarious tribute to Night of the Living Dead A plague of assholes is infecting the countryside. Normal everyday people are transforming into jerks, snobs, dicks, and douchebags. And they all have only one purpose: to make your life a living hell."
"This book is a parody of George Romero's zombie classic, but this is not the kind of parody that would feature Leslie Nielsen in the film adaption. Beyond the humorous premise and outstanding cover art, there is little humor to be found in this story, which wonders if, in the face of a worldwide epidemic of douchebaggery, is it possible to remain civil? If the entire world was overrun by a--holes, would there be any chance for kindness to survive?" Steve Lowe, Muscle Memory

One of our favorite things about reading bizarro fiction is the fantastical worlds into which we can escape. What's your favorite bizarro fiction world? It is Carlton Mellick's planet of flesh in Teeth & Tongue Landscape? It is the surreal dystopia of S.T. Cartledge's The Orphanarium? The kaiju apocalypse in Jeff Burk's Super Giant Monster Time? Or the bizarre fairy tale Kingdom of Teeth by The Sisters of Slaughter. TELL US YOUR FAVORITE BIZARRO WORLD!
Don't you love when you read a book that puts into words a thought or feeling that you relate to strongly and have never been able to express? Or even better, when you read something so beautifully strange that it inspires you to imagine even stranger things?

But due to Covid-19, our timeline has been disrupted, and we are not ready to look at or accept any new manuscripts at this time.

It’s been 7 months...and winter is looming. Mental health issues related to our lockdown and the pandemic are especially hard for people with depression and other mental health disorders. The relapse and overdose rate had increased by 30% since March 2020. There is help available.
In the U.S. NAMI, The National Alliance on Mental Health has a 24-hour helpline: 800-950-6264.
In the U.K. call the NHS urgent mental health hotline or you can text "SHOUT" to 85258 to contact the Shout Crisis Text Line, or text "YM" if you're under 19, to talk to a trained volunteer at the free listening service.
Local bookshops enrich neighborhoods in many ways beyond just book retail. They are community resources and meeting places, they host events, and they are passionate about literacy, about books, and about people who love reading. This important part of the literary community needs your help right now!
Here are a few suggestions:
1. Mail order directly from their website if they have one.
2. Make a donation or support their fundraising efforts
3. Attend their online events and promote them
4. Order books through Bookshop.org (link in comments)
Independent booksellers are desperate for customers to return, and not just for an online reading.
