CRAZY SHITTING PLANET

Partly eponymous and the best of the three stories contained within this volume. This is only my second foray into the world of bizarro and therefore I am still something of a novice when it comes to this genre. I am seeing certain core themes reoccurring though and marauding mutant genitalia does seem to be a particular bizarro favourite. this final installment is another compact and bijou novella detailing a world where it rains shit and there has been some sort of crapta...more

Even more awesome than all my other incredibly awesome books by me. And I'm not just saying it's awesome because I'm in love with myself. (Although of course I am, because I'm so obviously awesome.) I'm also saying it's awesome because I wrote it.

But please, don't just take my word for it. Buy a copy and develop your own opinion. Then, if your opinion is compatible with mine, tell me all about it! If not, then buy another copy and try again. If that doesn't work, you should go away and never spe...more

If I hadn't already read Help A Bear Is Eating Me, the most surprising quality of this book would have been that it's well written. With titles like HABIEM and Rampaging Fuckers of Everything on the Crazy Shitting Planet of the Vomit Atmosphere, I would expect to find a certain immaturity that extended beyond dick jokes and scatological humor to the entire book making it somewhat amusing but poorly written. This isn't the case though with Hansen's books, sure there is something immature about wr...more

I thought that I was the king of writing revolting stories that are splattered with blood, shit, cum, and various other bodily fluids. But, it seems that I may have met my match in Mr. Hansen. I thoroughly enjoyed his HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME! so I knew that RAMPAGING ASS BADGERS ON THE CUM DRIZZLED ANUS OF MOTHER TERESA would be a real fist-fuck of a good time. And I was not disappointed. How can you complain about stories with giant, deadly, schmeckels that erupt with great spouts of bloody m...more

Review to follow...it was hilarious!

I would love to read an annual report penned by Mykle Hansen. I can think of no one better to highlight the latent absurdity protocol and bureaucracy contain. Hansen’s writing encompasses that very rare treat – straight comedy. I view Hansen’s persona as that of every infomercial host you’ve ever seen rolled into a ball of beautiful nonsense. As I was reading this book, an illogical part of me kept expecting (hoping?) to hear the immaculately suited, Hansen at my front door, trying to sell me kn...more

Eminem once said "I am whatever you say I am" and the bold title of Mykle Hansen's book stands out as an unintentional echo of this statement for the Bizarro community. Provocateurs? Yup. Obsessed with sex and poo jokes? So was Dali. There is a triumphant shamelessness to the title of the book that resounds through its pages. If Mykle Hansen needed to eat puppies for breakfast to be himself, he would rap the table and scream "waiter, more puppy sauce!" These three novellas in the same place comb...more

Rampaging F’ers is a compilation of three short stories by bizarro genre writer Mykle Hansen.

I had read several reviews that likened Hansen to Christopher Moore, one of my favorite authors. After finishing this book, there really is no comparision. Where Moore is witty, smart and sardonic Hansen is simply freakish. There is no display of any literary technique or mastery on Hansen’s part. His writing is simply a string on non-sequiturs with each trying to be more gross or shocking than the last....more

I'll go out on a limb and say "Journey to the Center of Agnes Cuddlebottom" is the best history of the first Starbucks in the anus of an 80 year-old prostitute I am going to read this year.

Reading this book was like one of those drinking sessions where you end up getting wasted with the guy from work that's kind of clever, and can actually be funny, but also kind of a total dick, mostly because he is actually a LOT less funny than he thinks he is.

You know, he starts saying crazy shit, it sounds hilarious,(but you are also drunk, so anything that has the words cock and fuck in it will make you laugh), he also kind of sounds REALLY smart...And all of a sudden you're thinking "Holy s...more

This is by far the best book I've read in a long time. Clocking in at a bantam 200-ish pages, "Rampaging Fuckers" consists of three novels. The first is a story of penis enlargement gone horribly wrong. The last is a vision of the post-apocalyptic future that's riddled with scat-eating and fat-ass flying shitting robot overlords. The middle novel, which is obviously the centerpiece, is the story of the first Starbucks to open in an 80-year old prostitute's butt.

Now of course the poop humor isn't...more

In addition to the greatest title of all time, there are three novellas in this book that make up the second, third and forth greatest titles of all time. Sometime when I read other books, I think, why are their no man-eating dicks or human/blimps that shit all over everything. I bet if Stephenie Meyer had more crackwhore anuses and shit pirates in her dumb 'Twilight' books, I'd have more faith left in humanity.

This was NOT what i was expecting but none-the-less it was very good.

I would not recommend reading this on public transport as i did....you get some strange looks.

Wikipedia currently defines "Bizarro" as, "a contemporary literary genre, which often uses elements of absurdism, satire, and the grotesque, along with pop-surrealism and genre fiction staples, in order to create subversive works that are as weird and entertaining as possible." This makes bizarro sound awesome.

Nowhere is it mandated that a bizarro writer has to be too lazy to proof-read or properly edit. There is no rule to prevent the writer from taking the time to develop their wonderful and...more

Mykle Hansen lives in Portland Oregon and I am pretty sure he has live feeds of the max trains which he monitors avidly for footage of people reading his books on mass transit. This is where I read the majority of this book and it was the most uncomfortable experience I have had in years. If he doesn’t have such a feed, he should chat with TriMet and work something out…

I would welcome a chance to interview him and dig into the crackpot lounge of his brain for cigarette butts.

I loved this book, a...more

If Mykle wasn't a friend I'm not sure if this book or its synopsis would appeal to me, but I was actually intrigued... As it turned out, I really enjoyed it.

Each of these 3 stories, as with Mykle's other longer-form fiction, centers around some wildly surreal notion: penises that become giant monsters, devices that shrink people and insert them in other people's rectums, etc. One might calmly dismiss these tales as flights of pure fantasy to be consumed and then forgotten. But what strikes me ab...more

OK, so I gravitate towards strange fiction, but this was a little too much for me. I guess I’m a little too old, a little too squeamish, a little too conservative. Yes, these are actually very “interesting” stories, but they are too… well, GROSS actually. I felt the same way when I read some Carlton Mellick III books many years ago, except Mellick’s books lack ANY socially redeeming value. I think Hansen’s books could actually pass for decent reads, with an engaging premise, if the environments...more

This book contains 3 short novels: Monster Cocks; Journey to the Center of Agnes Cuddlebottom; and Crazy Shitting Planet. I had read the first story, Monster Cocks, previously in The Bizarro Starter Kit (blue) and remember liking it, so I decided to get this book mainly for the other 2 stories.

The second, Journey to the Center of Agnes Cuddlebottom, was definitely interesting and somewhat reminiscent of The Haunted Vagina, at least the premise of a world inside an orifice. Aside from being funny...more
LeeAnn Heringer
Totally a guilty pleasure. Obscene, edgy, over-the-top. For someone who gets 20-30 spam emails a day for Viagra and penis enhancement, the title story where this spam leads to the end of civilization as we know it was hilarious and unexpected. That was really the best of three novellas in the book, but they were all very pointed comedy that went in directions I've never seen anyone else go.

Though if you're sensitive about body parts and language, if you're easily offended, this book is going to...more
Jasmine
I read the first two novels a few weeks ago and decided to read the last one yesterday. It wasn't bad. My favorite story was the first one about the guy with a very small member. poor poor man. the second story was the most bizarre but quite fun. The last was not as good.

I am in fact in a conundrum about rating because my opinions are quite varied please ignore the stars
Miguel Bizarre
This is one wicked fun slightly disgusting book that shows pure genius. Mykle Hansen's imagination is spectacular. If you are afraid of the mention of poopy stuff then this isn't for you. Since he didn't include any Scratch-N-Sniff Poop stickers it was a delightful fun read. My better half is now going to read it because she said it sounded like a fun read.
Ed Erwin
Based on the title, I expected lots of childish bathroom humor. And, yes, that is there. But this isn't just a stream of filthy jokes. This guy can really write. Reminds me first and foremost of Mark Leyner, but I also thought of Vonnegut and Terry Gilliam. Perfect for fans of absurdist humor.

Recommended to jainabee by: Satan
Never has a title followed up its promise with such accurate content. Each novella increases(!) in horrors, gore, shit-stains become mountains, oceans and universes of shit. Rampaging upon all that is decent. The final story is strangely beautiful and poignant.

Perfect bathroom reading.
Zach
Laugh-out-loud funny and sometimes very insightful in its satire, like the best stories in Eyeheart Everything.

It's a little hard to discuss these books in mixed company, since their subject matter and even titles are obscene (or pornographic, depending on what you're into).
Cassidy
Mykle Hansen's incandescently obscene trio of novellas is the perfect thing to spend hours reading on the toilet. Highly recommended, unless you are easily offended by things that are extremely offensive.
Tanya
Not for the faint-hearted, this set of stories is completely out there. I liked the last one the best, a warm-hearted love story with far too much fecal matter.
Nick Stengel
Plenty of invective, to be sure, but not clever or funny. And BTW, all Fresca is non-caloric. There is no need to constantly refer to it as diet fresca!
Rebecca
Utterly ridiculous and friggin loving it.
heather
Hand-delivered! How can I resist!

I was expecting a bit more.

I am no Bizzaro aficionado, but I have read a few books by Carlton Mellick III, who must be considered some sort of Bizzaro god. Of the three short novelettes, I found myself enjoying the last one, (Crazy Shitting PLanet) the most imaginative and best written. I liked the multitude of interesting characters in this story, while in the other two stories characters were more or less forgettable.

I think a few of my friends might disown me if they knew I read this.

Mykle Hansen's inability to have a normal reaction is key to the popularity of his surreal fiction and neo-gonzo journalism. He is the author of the acclaimed short-story collection EYEHEART EVERYTHING, several dozen 'zines, a religious self-help column in the Portland Mercury, and over fifty thousand lines of Perl. HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME! is his first novel. RAMPAGING FUCKERS OF EVERYTHING ON...more
