Jeff Strand dips his whole body in the Bizarro sub-genre with this one. Facial has Strand’s snarky sense of humor out in full force but damn is it ever weird. Flesh-eating face in the floor kind of weird. If that’s your thing read on. Greg’s wife is cheating on him. Instead of confronting her, he ...

Content Screening: Violence and Sexual Situations This is my first DarkFuse book and I have to say, I really enjoyed it! Based on the synopsis I wasn't really sure what to expect, and I still can't quite do it justice except to say that it is great. Facial is dark, and a bit graphic, but hi...

This screwed up little novella begins like an everyday noir story and then transforms into something vastly different. Impotent resume writer Greg has hired a hitman to kill the boldest of his wife's many lovers, but he doesn't want any loose ends and murders the assassin in his office. Of course, t...

If you appreciate weird and are a fan of Jeff Strand, then you're going to love Facial. If you're one or the other, then you'll probably like this just fine. If you're neither, then try a different Jeff Strand book, because this one - short and eminently readable as it is - is not the place to start...

This is my first Jeff Strand book, and it won't be my last. I say this because I've been led to believe that Facial is not his norm. Don't get me wrong, this book is a treat for about the first 30%. But it soon devolves into a one-trick pony. There's a single joke on display here: these people ha...

This one from Jeff Strand is told from many different POV’s and each voice has that Strand style – biting, witty dialog and thoroughly whacked out characters. Greg’s wife has been cheating on him. A lot. Luckily for him, his brother Carlton, has a face in his basement and it’s hungry. Jeff Strand i...

One thing you can be sure of when you read a Jeff Strand book is that you'll never guess where it's going and it's going to be unique getting there. Facial starts rather crazily from the first page and the insanity never lets up! A joking hitman, a dead lion in a basement and a talking face in the ...

I received an ARC ebook of this novella from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Perhaps I should be worried that I didn’t find this all that weird…. I have read most of Jeff Strand’s work and I am a fan. For those of you not familiar with his work I would recommend Dweller and Wolf Hunt fo...
