Southern Pulp Fiction – Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe @Adam_G_Howe
Tijuana Donkey Showdown - Adam Howe

 

 

Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe is one raunchy, ridiculously hilarious ride.

I mean, look at the cover for a hint of what’s inside. I don’t believe your imagination can get you there. LOL

MY REVIEW

 

Adam Howe’s writing is so over the top, backwoods swamp honky tonk, upchucking, hilariously, side splitting funny, I am almost embarassed to say that I LOVE IT!

 

I am happy to be back with Reggie in the shithole strip club he bounces at. His life is one bad thing after another and I laugh my way through each adventure.

 

I don’t know how to describe this raunchy, uncouth, crude, twisted story, but, maybe, Southern pulp fiction is a start. Adam Howe’s imagination is so far out there, I wonder what he’s taking, and I’ll have some please! LOL

 

The donkey…OMG…the donkey…

 

As I read his notes about his research, I can only imagine what someone would think if they looked at his browser history.

 

I love how he makes fun about Nicholas Cage. I love Nic and some of the weird twisted movies he plays in. What’s even funnier, right after I finished reading this, I ended up watching Ghost Rider, a Nicholas Cage movie that, well, you have to see it to ‘believe’ it.

 

There is a bonus story – Clean Up On Aisle 3 – This is one robbery where the owner has a surprise that you will never see coming…and never want to.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Tijuana Donkey Showdown by Adam Howe.

Ill Will
Ill Will - Dan Chaon

By: Dan Chaon

ISBN: 9780345476043

Publisher:  Random House  

Publication Date: 3/7/2017 

Format: Other 

My Rating: 4 Stars 

 

Psychologically complex Dan Chaon’s ILL WILL is a dark, haunting, and twisty suspense thriller full of madness, tragedy, murder, grief, and despair. Cancer, drugs, addictions, and satanic evil.

"We meet our destiny on the road we take to avoid it." —Jean De La Fontaine.

Dustin Tillman is a suburban Cleveland psychiatrist. Father of two teenage boys, Aaron and Dennis. His wife, Jill dying of cancer, and one of his patients is now recruiting him to help investigate the drownings of young men that seem to match a pattern. He is struggling with his own past. He is the survivor.

In 1983, when he was thirteen years old, his mother, father, aunt, and uncle were murdered. Dustin accused his adopted older brother, Rusty (attracted to Satanism) of the crime. Rusty was incarcerated.

What really happened with the violent murder during a summer holiday in 1983? Two unsolved crimes. Past and Present.

 



"In the end it is the mystery that lasts and not the explanation."—Sacheverell Sitwell, For Want of the Golden City.

Now he has been exonerated and released. Thirty some years after Dustin’s testimony put him away for murdering their parents, aunt, and uncle. Now DNA evidence clears him of the crime.

From dark family secrets and deceit, this is one creepy grisly disturbing book. Unnerving, moody and atmospheric. Emotionally wrenching and complex.

Plot-driven, the author uses impressive skill and control, as he crosses multiple narratives with different perspectives— for a mind-bending saga which will leave your head spinning. An exploration of memories, delusion, and self-deception.

". . . Every memory he thinks of now is discolored and ugly. The past suddenly has vanished from underneath him, distorted, memories turned into something he doesn't recognize, something malevolent."

The author keeps the evil, despair, terror and suspense high. Exploring humanity’s darker side. If you are looking for a relaxing read, move on. However, you if like crossing over to the darker side, and enjoy well-written complex literary/pulp fiction thrillers, you may enjoy the scary intense ride.

A special thank you to Random House, LibraryThing Early Reviewers, and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Creeped Out
No Dogs in Philly: A Lovecraftian Cyberpunk Noir (Special Sin Book 1) - Andy Futuro

 

I picked up a copy for free on Amazon.  This book has more than 50 reviews, many quite positive. It's the author's only Amazon entry and the first of a series.

 

It lives up to its claim of being Lovecraftian cyberpunk noir. The detective noir is well realized, the cyberpunk, appropriate. As for the Lovecraftian bits … well, they creeped me out.

 

Our heroine, Saru, like many noir detectives, makes steady use of whatever alcohol she carries or comes across. She thinks this makes it more difficult to hack her implants. But it doesn't work. She's prone to odd blackouts and dysphoria. But that's understandable. What's attacking her is not of this world, and it wants to incorporate her, along with the multitude it already has.

 

This dismal dystopian story is creepier than a Bosch Hell and as conventional as psychotic delusions:

 

"Looking at his kindly old Santa Claus face it was almost impossible to imagine that he had just shot wires into her neck and sucked out her blood, that he was talking to her above a pit full of thousands of bodies in front of the cathedral of an alien death cult … "

 

If you like this sort of thing, you'll probably enjoy this book. SPOILER ALERT: It doesn't end like a detective story but in a literal Deus Ex Machina.

(spoiler show)

My Resolution

 

It's New Year's Day and I've made a resolution. This year I'll read and review more short science fiction novels. Years ago these thin paperbacks could be found stuffed like bumper crop fruit on the racks of rotating drugstore displays. Now you don't see them much in stores. They've been replaced by longer titles since people want better value when buying much more expensive paperbacks.

 

Although it's now more difficult to find them in print, many popular books have been short. Consider these:

 

  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  • Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
  • The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells
  • The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
  • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

 

All contain fewer than 50,000 words. I'll be reviewing books under 65,000 words.

 

Since these books won't come from retailer's shelves, I'll be reading them as eBooks. Many shorter eBook titles are written by self-published authors. I don't mind that, but I do have standards, so here's what I won't be reading:

  • Anything that begins with a lengthy information dump. Milieu building should be natural.
  • Anything that makes wildly unscientific assumptions. The galaxy is huge. Spaceships that easily travel between galaxies fail to convince me.
  • Anything stuffed with technical or military jargon.
  • Anything that uses convoluted grammar or unpronounceable words.

 

I'm open to suggestions and free copies. I'm daveloeff at gmail dot com.

Familiar Figures
Legenderry A Steampunk Adventure #1 - Bill Willingham

I will always compare everything Bill Willingham does to Fables, fair or unfair. And it seems to pale in comparison. I normally love when modern writers borrow characters from the classics, and Willingham has done this with characters from the pulp action, fantasy and adventure of the 19th and Early 20th century and integrated them into the Steampunk framework of his imagination. I was more inspired by the artwork than the actual story. As far as the narrative itself, it was vaguely interesting. I think the cameos were the most fascinating aspect. If my library gets the next volume, I would read it.
