Wol-vriey is the L. Frank Baum of our perverted 21st Century!

There are striking similarities in the worlds Wol-vriey builds to the Land of Oz and its various interconnected fairylands. Both authors create patchwork characters out of inanimate objects, animals, and people parts. Geography plays a large role in separating the species they invent. Characters are repeatedly hacked to pieces and reassembled through magic. Their worlds are populated with strong female characters, often wicked and pow

Then he heard the snuffling sound behind him.

Malone spun around firing.

He got off a shot which hit the fractured window before the raptor's jaws shut over the muzzle of his gun.

"Fuck!" he thought, starring momentarily past the lizard's head at the charred window frame.

The raptor held Malone's gun in a vice-like grip. It wrenched its head left and right, seeking to yank it from his grasp.

The current state of the world is referred to as the New Past.

Read the majority of this today. Overall, very imaginative novel which kept me reading, even though I had serious issues with some of it (the revolting chicken scenes for example. I hate any type of animal cruelty, so I really found them hard to get through). This is an extremely graphic novel and there is a lot of sex in it, much of it grotesque rather than erotic. (I assume that was the intention). It certainly won't be for everyone.

"You've been warned".

Nothing can prepare you for the world Wol-vriey has created.

There is a lot going on in this book. I'll start with a brief synopsis:

Bud Malone is a detective living in 2028 AD, in an era called "New Past". Dinosaurs and dragons roam free, the world's de facto rulers are a group of living, sentient cutlery simply known as the "Forks" and people of Boston live under a security grid that protects them.

Ah, buildings are laid by massive beetles, and there are transexual angels.

I’m often worried when authors send me their books to read in case I absolutely hate it. No worries on account of Boston Posh however because I simply could not put this down.

Where do I begin? At its heart it’s a pulp detective story about a PI called Bud Malone asked by a nympho sexagenarian to conduct an exchange to get back her kidnapped daughter Rachel. Malone soon finds out that Rachel engineered her own kidnapping to get the cash to fund her pet project of world domination. Things go downh

Like a Catholic school girl whose fear of damnation limits her uncontrollable promiscuity to the singular act of fellatio, the average Bizarro aficionado has had to satisfy their guilty pleasure with novellas that only fulfill their burning desire in short quick spurts.
But not anymore.
Veteran Bizarro writer Wol-vriey took a short story concept about the theft of a Presidential liver and turned it into an epic hundred-thousand word transgressive masterpiece called "Boston Posh." The myth that biz
Thank you to the author for allowing me to read and review this book!

I have NEVER defined myself by how much extreme, graphic material I can be exposed to without flinching. In point of fact, I am a wimp. But I'm also curious, so I often get myself into situations I later regret. Unfortunately, reading this book definitely falls into that category. I just can't unread this stuff!

Having given it the standard 100 pages, I can't really give a detailed review, but I will comment on what was in that

All I can say is that Mellick better watch out for Wol-vriey! This guy has some amazing talent for the weird and warped! Overall, I loved the book. The one fault is that some of the stuff in the middle was a bit slow going due to the book's length. There was, however, enough shit going on to really keep you interested.

Firstly let's get this out of the way: if you do not want to read graphic, bizarre (some might say perverted) sex scenes then do not pick up this book. Don't even look at the cover. Seriously, it's not that the book is mostly those type of scenes but when they come (so to speak) they are over the Top with a capital 'T'.

If you enjoy those (or can at least tolerate them) then this is a great book. It is a great example of the Bizarro genre; it has many bizzare characters and concepts and is introd

There's so much going on in this strange and twisted tale that I was not able to enjoy it as much as I think I would have if it had focused more on certain players.

We start out with Malone searching for the kidnapped daughter of a rich woman. Malone takes a beating and keeps going while being followed by robots. He meets Posh, the prostitute, who gets paid to have chickens cut up on her back while performing cunnilingus on a customer. She's addicted to dragon crack and becomes a killer when she

Boston Posh: Wol vriey

Imagine what would happen if the world you are about to enter and created by author Wol vriey really existed. Or maybe it does and we just don’t know it! The USA has been destroyed, burned, ruined and taken over by dragons and dinosaurs that are deadly. They go out each day seeking not to rule the world but to eat its inhabitants and wreak havoc, fear and take control of anything that seems to look tasty. Within this world we have a woman named Ma Cure is 200 years old and

I was given a copy of this book to review by the author. To start off with, I have read some Bizarro books before and was entertained even though they were a little strange. The premise for this book had me interested, private detective, dinosaurs and dragons...very interesting. However, the extremely kinky and twisted sex scenes in this book completely ruined the actual plot of the book for me. I couldn't finish this book because of it. The actual plot gets buried underneath all this weird sex ...more

I’m not a reader of bizzaro; not that I dislike it, I just haven’t come across much. So I went into this book with no idea what I was in for.

It’s the oddest book I’ve ever read. We’ve got dinosaurs, dragons, horrific deaths, holy utensils, cannibals, murderous robots, a talking walrus, and the weirdest/most horrifying sex scenes I have ever read. This is not hyperbole! The most disgusting ever! Numerous times I found myself saying out loud, "JESUS CHRIST!"

4.467852 stars. The master of the weird really shows his skills here by writing a book that at least double the length of the average bizarro novel. The many characters and plot lines were fleshed out very well. It all came together nicely over the course of the book. There were also a few scenes that went into new territory in terms of how odd and disturbing. I have come to expect all of these things from the author. My favorite characters were Ma and Beth.

My thanks to the author for providing a copy for review.

First, I must say that the writing itself is quite good. Characters are fully developed and interesting. The story is engaging. These are the positives, and they are strong positives.

However, it just isn't the book for me. I'm a very squeamish reader and am clearly not the target audience. If you have a strong stomach and such things don't bother you, read away! You will probably enjoy this one very much.

Not even...

I just skipped to the end to write a review. Such an interesting plot. The profanity was just off the change. Turned the whole book into a pile of garbage. Won't be reading any more of his book. Skipped thru as much of the sex scenes as I could. The f worry was on so many pages that I just gave up and skimmed for a while. Then I gave up on that. No way. Don't buy this book unless u just don't care. So looking forward to a good dino story. This was not it.

Wow, just wow. This book should be a mandatory read for Creative Writing classes. This was the most bizarre Bizarro book that I've read so far. The setting and characters were wonderfully imaginative. This book was extremely perverse and disgusting with quite a few WTF moments, and it was fun as hell, but read with caution. And to think that there are two more books in the series.

Kris Lugosi
Of all the bizarro authors I have read, Wolvriey takes the cake on quantity while maintaining quality. I don't know how he is able to construct so many concepts, plots, and characters and weave them together in such a coherent way that you are immersed into his bizarre world which at times are epically violent and disturbing with a perfect balance of dry humor with the best character development among the chaos. I have yet to be disappointed or disinterested in any of Wolvrieys giant tomes of bi ...more
To be frankly honest, I'm not sure how I feel about Boston Posh on a personal level. On the one hand, it is a richly imagined post apocalyptic pulp story. On the other hand, I have to give trigger warnings for this book and parts of it did make me profoundly uncomfortable. You have been warned, this book involves some incredibly violent and graphic images, a lot of it of a sexual nature. It is definitely a unique book that can make sex more uncomfortable and frightening than cannibalism.

Superbly executed, brilliantly written!

Very rarely does a book engage my imagination to the point where I enjoyed it so much that I want to experience it again. However, when reading Boston Posh, I can honestly say, it was a blast! Not only did I read it twice, I read it thrice – and back-to-back! It was just honestly so entertaining that I absolutely loved it.

Sometimes you can catch a great movie in the theaters and want to see it again just to catch the parts that you missed. Boston Posh is li

This book took me a really, REALLY, long time to read. However, that is not because I did not like it. In fact, it was SUPER entertaining. It just took so long because 1) It is a bit long, especially for bizarro (by far the longest bizarro book I have read) and 2) Because I read it as a PDF on my computer. I ALWAYS take much longer to read books when they are PDFs on my computer, as opposed to print. With that said, this book was fun.

Alright, full review (which I swear I wrote already, but maybe that was one of those things I did in my sleep).
At base, this book was promising. There's some very cool concepts that haven't often or really been explored in bizarro fiction. The first couple of chapters I was into it. Dinosaurs are always a big plus to be honest, as is over the top ridiculous gory sex.
And then... Well, there's something stylists say about accessories: Look at what you have, take off three items and you're good to

I always like the first 1/3 of a Wol-vriey book. They start out as a decent story with a few interesting bizarro elements that appear to have some kind of stable mechanics. Then they devolve into what sounds like someone explaining a particularly weird dream that is difficult to relate to.

I can deal with dinosaurs and dragons, post apocalypse, cannibalism, and dragonreich, but could do without the:

First of all, my copy of the book was generously provided to me by the author. :D

So yeh... well. Interesting.... awkward... and GROSS. Now that is not meant in any sort of negative fashion, and after reading what he wrote, I don't think Wol-vriey will interpret it as such.
It was a fun read, but it is not for the easily grossed out or the faint of heart. This book contains -a lot- of really graphic, bizarre sex and violence, but the way that the story progresses none of it seems particularly out
I truly wanted to like this book. I was provided a copy by the author which immediately gave me hope that this was an undiscovered gem. And maybe it is, but just not a gem that caught my eye.
Generally, the novel felt shallow and flat. I wanted to know WHY the world changed, WHY the characters seemed to be purely driven by their genitalia, etc. Perhaps if I'd finished the story, some of my questions would have been answered.
I did like the dialogue. The author's writing style flowed well when hi

A veritable Bizarro epic. As if the return trip of Odysseus took place during a particularly intense acid trip. But once you get past the fact that the content is in some ways so repulsive, a very entertaining story is going on at the same time. Recommended, but with the note that there are things in here that you haven't heard and would probably live a long happy life never hearing again. Open mindedness is essential.
