The Cannibals of Candyland (2009)

English

review 1: “Wouldn’t you love to see your mate enjoying your flavor? Wouldn’t that make you feel like you taste really good?” “I don’t care if I taste good,” he says. “But everybody wants to taste good.” “Humans don’t.” “Then how do humans show their affection for each other?” “They tell th...
Fantastic Orgy (2011)

4.09 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: If you know anything about the bizzaro genre or have paid any attention to prolific writers or give a shit about reading at all, the name Carlton Mellick III pops up. "Fantastic Orgy" is a group of five stories. They are funny. They are absurd. And some of them have heart. "Ear C...
Zombies and Shit (2010)
language
English
4.17 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: In the introduction to this book, Carlton Mellick mentions that he hasn't had this much out-and-out FUN writing a novel in a very long time. I can definitely feel that exuberance coming off every page of 'Zombies and Shit'. Mellick writes with the intensity of a manic six-grader ...
Crab Town (2011)
language
English
3.95 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: These Cartlon Mellick books are a lot of fun. They are truly modern pulp and adhere to a quickly-written, thrilling, shocking, and strange aesthetic. While I did not enjoy this one as much as The Haunted Vagina, The Cannibals of Candyland, Ape Shit, or Warrior Wolf Women of the ...
Quicksand House (2013)
language
English
4.65 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This book is a beautiful, sad kind of magic. It's the best I've read of CMIII's recent work (which focuses more on subdued, methodical storytelling than the fragmented, almost experimental feel of his early writing), and a chilling, grotesque evocation of the terror of childhood:...

English

review 1: This book centres around the main character of Franklin Pierce. An oddball man with a tragic childhood, due to the cannibalistic candy people who prey on children. He makes it his life's mission to prove to the world that they do exist.After finding his way into the underground w...
The Morbidly Obese Ninja (2011)
language
English
3.76 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Mellick is a very fun writer. In this book he has written an anime story with a bizarro twist. Basu is a ninja, the best ninja in fact, but he's also morbidly obese. A genuine hero, Basu soon finds himself saving the life of a target he was supposed to kill, all the while maintai...
The Faggiest Vampire (2009)
language
English
3.74 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: One may be forgiven for thinking that weird examples of facial hair are among some pantheon of bizarro deities, especially when books like Carlton Mellick III's The Faggiest Vampire roll around. Mustaches are everywhere in Broodsarrow, having become an epidemic thought to either ...
The Kobold Wizard's Dildo of Enlightenment +2 (an Adventure for 3-6 Players, Levels 2-5 (2010)

review 1: One of those so fucking obvious ideas, why didn't I have it myself! Sure, there are some glaring weaknesses, but if you shield your eyes, this book is fantastic. There is a part of me that wishes Mr Mellick would have taken a bit more time to really explore the concept, but fuck...
The Egg Man (2008)
language
English
4.35 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I like the minimalist aspect of this book, it flows almost like a children's story. Very quick read, and I love the idea of what the Egg Man is (the ultimate in electro-acoustic). Contrary to the back cover comments, I don't think this is anywhere near CM3's darkest or grittiest ...
