Meet Grover Goldstein: Twenty-First Century rascal, trainee provocateur, boy next door who won't stop snickering at you from behind the lawn gnome. Swallowed by a giraffe and regurgitated oodles of years into the future, Grover must satisfy his urge to go home —even if it means going back to high school and helping his severed, and sentient, penis win the presidential election.Come along to Assumption High as Grover tries to answer the age-old question, "What if I had forgotten then what I don'’t know now?""Bradley Sands’ debut novel is an absurdist dreamscape that subverts the physical laws of the world as we know it and exposes a brilliant new arena of bizarro existence. In It Came from Below the Belt, the body becomes a surreal, grotesque playground as enfant terrible Grover Goldstein tears through the libidinal fabric of time and space on an uncanny journey to the end of the night. This is speculative fiction at its best. Sands is a talented, fearsome, comic visionary who will usher you into the psychedelic matrix of futurity." - D. Harlan Wilson, author of The Kafka Effekt, Stranger on the Loose, and Pseudo-City"Reading the work of Bradley Sands caused me to vomit happiness and sunshine from my eyeballs. Highly recommended." - Kevin L. Donihe, author of Shall We Gather at the Garden? and editor of Bare Bone

This is the best book by Bradley Sands I have read yet and I'm really really really glad I purchased my copy before it went out of print. I know it's a lot of really's but I mean each and every one of them.Bradley Sands is an absurd bird, but that's to be expected, I mean it is bizarro after all! Th...
I expected something a little more studious given the seriousness of the cover and the drama of the 'This-is-a-one-chair-town' photo of the author, but I laughed more at this book than I have at any other in recent memory. I am easily amused but I don't tend to literally laugh out loud at books.Thi...
