lasthorrorfinalThe Last Horror Novel in the History of the World by Brian Allen Carr

The black magic of bad living only looks hideous to honest eyes.

 

Welcome to Scrape, Texas, a nowhere town near the Mexican border. Few people ever visit Scrape, and the unlucky ones who live there never seem to escape. They fill their days with fish fries, cheap beer, tobacco, firearms, and sex. But Scrape is about to be invaded by a plague of monsters unlike anything ever seen in the history of the world. First there’s La Llorona — the screaming woman in white — and her horde of ghost children. Then come the black, hairy hands. Thousands, millions, scurrying on fingers like spiders or crabs. But the hands are nothing to El Abuelo, a wicked creature with a magical bullwhip, and even El Abuelo don’t mean shit when the devil comes to town.

noah2The Collected Works of Noah Cicero. Vol. 2 by Noah Cicero

Vasily Krymov is a first-generation Russian immigrant living in Youngstown, Ohio. He drinks coffee at the Waffle House. He drinks rum in seedy strip clubs. He washes dishes at a steakhouse for minimum wage. Through all of it, he thinks of suicide, envisioning grand escapes from his own personal hell.

When he discovers a pill bottle full of Oxycontin in the restroom of a bar, Vasily thinks he has found his escape. He and his best friend devise a plant to sell the pills to raise enough money to head out west and escape the squalid streets of Youngstown forever. But for a man like Vasily, escaping one hell only means finding another.

A bleak, comedic masterpiece of down-and-outers in decaying America, The Insurgent is Noah Cicero at his minimalistic best. The Collected Works of Noah Cicero Vol. 2 also features three of Noah Cicero’s most acclaimed short stories: “Two Old Lovers Bring Out Their Guns,” “Visiting My Sister,” and “Two Hard Workers.”

thefunwevehadThe Fun We’ve Had by Michael J. Seidlinger

“Michael Seidlinger is a homegrown Calvino, a humanist, and wise and darkly whimsical. His invisible cities are the spires of the sea where we all sail our coffins in search of our stories.”-Steve Erickson, author of Zeroville

Two lovers are adrift in a coffin on an endless sea. Who are they? They are him and her. They are you and me. They are rowing to salvage what remains of themselves. They are rowing to remember the fun we’ve had.

Collecting Noah Cicero’s most acclaimed and popular works, this volume includes the short novels The Human War (soon to be a major motion picture), The Doomed, The Condemned, and Burning Babies, along with rare novellas and short stories that have not been available to the public in years. Stark in their beauty, raw in their sadness, and driven by a desperate compulsion to save – and be saved by – humanity, The Collected Works of Noah Cicero Vol. I highlights what it is to be young and poor in America. Buy this book and learn why freedom is good. Buy this book and become beautiful. Buy this book and know that the distance between you and happiness is the distance between you and the nearest Denny’s. So get in the car and drive.

“I read Noah Cicero and remember that “hysterical” can refer to something really funny and to a situation completely out of control.  His work punches people in the face.  Don’t get in its way.” – Daniel Handler (AKA Lemony Snicket)

“It’s full of angry, humorous and intelligent insights. I read it in one sitting.” – Harvey Pekar

“What is shocking about The Condemned is its confidence and sense of purpose. Really, really brilliant and readable.” – Ned Vizzini

“I like your voice because you do not explain things that are obvious.” – Tao Lin
