Read from July 09 to 10, 2012

Dennis hits rock bottom after losing his wife and his job, so when porn star Peter Oh'Tool approaches him to take part in a sexcathalon and potentially become King of the Perverts and win a million dollars, he jumps at the chance. But can Dennis find women willing to participate in ten of the most disgusting sex acts imaginable?

The King of the Perverts, as you can infer by the title, is chock full of hilariously disgusting sex acts. If such a thing disturbs you, this is not your book. If it doesn't, you're kind of a perv and should continue to read.

Still here? Cool. Steve Lowe's writing has come along quite a bit since Muscle Memory, his entry in the New Bizarro Author series last year. Dennis comes off as a sympathetic character, no easy task considering the golden shower, hot karl, and other depraved acts he engages in in an attempt to win a million dollars. The way reality TV is these days, it's not hard to imagine The King of Perverts as an actual show.

That's really about all I can say. The book is pretty slim and I don't want to spoil anything. A hilarious and disgusting effort from Steve Lowe is a good way to sum it up.

Well, Steve Lowe has more of my money now. How could I resist a book featuring the rusty trombone, dirty sanchez, and the donkey punch? I couldn't and neither can you!

Tfitoby do you buy all your new bizarre in ebook, from an online shop or from a bricks and mortar store? i seem to struggle for actual books from actual stores myself.


message 2: by Dan (new) - rated it 3 stars

Dan 1.0 I get mine from Amazon. I've never seen a bizarro book in an actual store.


message 3: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Graham The day they add a Bizarro aisle to Barnes & Noble will be the day I start writing YA paranormal.


message 4: by Tfitoby (new)

Tfitoby There are a few but not nearly enough and always the same ones in my preferred real book shops, I guess I'm luckier than I thought.


message 5: by Traci (new)

Traci I obviously live a very sheltered life. Not sure if I'm ready to expand my horizons quite this far, thought :)

Don’t worry Art, I already told Ingram to eff off after reviewing their ridiculous terms.


Richard Reviles Censorship Always in All Ways The donkey punch! Ye gawds! This man's serious about king of the perverts.

Not sure endcap = aisle, but since that might actually be BETTER overall, I'll bite. Thing is, I'm pretty sure I could probably be charged with a sex crime (or at least corruption of a minor) if I tried to write a book intended for THAT particular audience...

Yeah yeah - I'm just as aware as you are that quite a few "YA" books are actually written for/read by "MAA" (middle-aged adults) or older, but still...

Might have to eat my words after all. But first... I want proof!


message 10: by karen (new)

karen there are pictures on one of the AIFAFs or another. probably multiple ones.

there are not enough bizarro books to make a complete aisle - it would all be faceouts and not a good use of space.and no one would be able to find them because it would screw up the alphabet.

Arthur Graham Does B&N really sell Bizarro books? In-store? If so, I stand (flabbergasted and) corrected.


message 12: by Eric (new)

Eric Hendrixson Powell's carries them in-store, but that's Portland.


message 13: by karen (new)

B&N must be thinking of switching to Borders' business model...

Mark Great review Dan, I love the 'Still here ? Cool.' line.
Think I will probably give this one a miss.

rusty trombone, dirty sanchez, and the donkey punch

something tells me this is nothing to do with a brass player who does not take care of his music, an unclean mexican or a particularly vicious animal

You'd be right. Don't google any of those terms at work, BTW.
