I Finally Know My Genre! Bizarro Fiction!

Hallucinations, Channeler and Hiding Darkly are more than Horror blended with  Sci-Fi, they are in the new genre of Bizarro. Wikipedia gives this genre a great description below:

"Bizarro fiction is a contemporary literary genre, which often utilizes elements of absurdismsatire, 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. The term was adopted in 2005 by the independent publishing companies Eraserhead Press, Raw Dog Screaming Press, and Afterbirth Books. Much of its community revolves around Eraserhead Press, which is based in Portland, Oregon, and has hosted the BizarroCon yearly since 2008."

"A Hollow Cube is a Lonely Space" by S.D. Foster. Published by Eraserhead Press, available for Kindle.


A collection of twenty-three bizarro fables in which you'll meet Nobody, a performing primate who wants to chew your children's lips off; pontificate with the Stork, philosopher and feces-eater; rejoice as Nordin "The Noggin" Nobel, noted socialite, is reconciled to his estranged head; share the existential despair of Slothra the suicidal kaiju; celebrate the love of Violet and her rotting lover; explore the meaning of life with Dr. Ebenezer A.T. Horkenheimer, sociopath, and the geography of heaven and hell with Ted the mangled toy. And so much more...
