Burning Down George Orwell's House
Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner Award finalist Robert Stone describes Burning Down George Orwell's House as a "… most enjoyable, a witty, original turn … one part black comedy and one part a meditation on modern life. It is well-written and truly original." Learn more about the author, Andrew Ervin

Book Description

Zombie socialite, Amanda Feral, and her undead friends, Wendy and Gil, shamble into an idyllic seaside village for an event promoting Amanda's memoir, HAPPY HOUR OF THE DAMNED and, as usual, to get some rest, relaxation and consume cute coastal townsfolk. As is their unique luck, plans are derailed when they become embroiled in a gory mystery at the Miss Sand Flea Pageant. Beset with perky, sinister go-go dancers, the inevitable hot wereshark and an annoying octogenarian writer, Amanda must, once again, take time out of her busy schedule of perpetuating horrors, critique and ridicule to solve the crime and save a local bookseller from ruin.

After a few years away from the Urban Fantasy genre, the dark and dementedly funny Mark Henry is back with the first installment in a new trilogy of hilariously gruesome novellas featuring everyone's favorite undead socialite, Amanda Feral.

5.0 out of 5 stars Depraved, but oh so much fun! April 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I’ve been a fan of Amanda Feral, author Mark Henry’s salacious undead heroine, since 2008′s Happy Hour of the Damned. Since then she’s been in two more books, Battle of the Network Zombies (2010) and Road Trip of the Living Dead (2011) and now a fourth ‘book’, well novella, entitled Beach Blanket Bloodbath. Amanda is a zombie who ‘lives’ in Seattle along with were-creatures, vampires, and unsuspecting humans. Amanda is the type of friend that you love to have over, but not to be in public with, in case she talks, because anything she says will be completely inappropriate, albeit funny.

In Beach Blanket Bloodbath, Amanda takes an unscheduled road trip to the ocean beaches of Washington state to track down a drug thief who has hopped on a cruise ship headed for California. Along with Wendy, her best zombie pal, and Gil a gay vampire, they set their sights on Las Felicitas and get caught up in a murder in the small town.

It’s been 3 years since the last Amanda Feral book and I was famished! Henry’s books have always struck the lowest of my senses of humor. When I first played Cards Against Humanity, I thought they’d be like the Amanda novels. Turns out they are waaaaay tamer than what I had expected. Maybe Henry should look into dirtying those up for the more depraved of us.

The Feral books are a mash-up of South Park, Workaholics and The Devil Wears Prada mixed in to a gay friendly atmosphere that just hits me the right way. “Guilty pleasure” doesn’t even cover these. Warped, licentious, perverted pleasure may be closer. It’s been too long Amanda, and even if I have to wait another three years to read about your exploits, I’ll be here hoping that Mark Henry stays the debauched writer I know he can be. You are a sick, sick man Mark, and I love that about you!

5 stars for a story that makes you wonder what kind of person you are for enjoying the twisted and warped mind of Mark Henry.

I about wet my pants when I found out Mark Henry was writing 3 novellas to continue the misadventures of the gruesome threesome from his Amanda Feral series.

Amanda, Wendy and Gil are on another road trip and they think their first stop will be quiet and peaceful but they should have known better. There is no such thing as peaceful when these three are involved. Golden go-go dancers, pageant queens, crazy annoying writer and Weresharks oh my. Mark has a way of finding anything and everything that is depraved, strange and oh so wrong.

Beach Blanket Bloodbath gets The Crazy Booksellers stamp of approval for a novella that is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great return or starting point April 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the earlier three books by Henry. This book is just as vile, delicious and snarky. It's also a great jumping in point for new readers.

Christopher Moore is the easiest comparison for the way Henry spears sacred cows with hilarious insight, but he has a unique voice. He takes the gore of horror and the bump and squish of erotica but filters it into something that really deserves more attention. (Especially at this price.)

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT READ April 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
From the author that brought you HAPPY HOUR OF THE DAMMED Comes the next installment of the Amanda Feral saga. BEACH BLANKET BLOOD BATH as Amanda, Wendy and Gil at it again. As they head to a sea side town for some rest and relaxation. Until they get embroiled in the mystery surrounding the Miss Sand Flea pageant. And hilarity and death follow them . Just ask all the were sharks circling around the pageant . The scent of chum in the air .

Amanda and her sassy, bitchy attitude keeps everyone on their toes as they work their way through the mystery. By the way love Amanda's very snarky attitude. She is my new hero, even if she is a zombie. Hey zombies have the same rights as we do , just saying.

I couldn't put this book down. I was laughing so hard in some spots .Mark can weave a tale that is both funny and gross at the same time. The characters feel like they are part of your family. We all have them the sassy bitchy sister, and the best friend that just shakes her head and goes along with you . Sassing you right back.

This maybe a short book, but it is packed to the gills . you will get so wrapped up giggling all night long. If you are like me Amanda will get under your skin and she will be making you laugh and read all her other books. So check her out

5.0 out of 5 stars Mark Henry does it again! April 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mark Henry has done it again. Amanda has returned and there is no holding her back. Apparently, you can’t keep a good (if you can call her that) zombie down or quiet. Back on the road with Wendy and Gil, along with the addition of Abuelita, the now foursome continue to shock and awe at every turn.

Mark’s talent for melding snarky humor, gore, and sex makes for a delightfully decadent read. Whether you are just being introduced to Amanda or have followed her antics since Happy Hour of the Damned, you can’t be disappointed with Beach Blanket Bloodbath, except maybe that there is not enough of it. Not to worry though, Amanda and the gang aren’t finished yet. This is the first in a new trilogy of Amanda Feral novellas and I can’t wait to see what or who they manage to get into next.

More About the Author

Mark traded a career in the helping profession to scar minds with his fiction. He attributes his ideas to premature exposure to horror movies, and/or witnessing adult cocktail parties in the '70s. His development has been further skewed by surviving earthquakes, typhoons, and two volcanic eruptions. Despite being disaster prone, he somehow continues to live and breathe. Residing in the oft maligned, yet not nearly as soggy as you'd think, Pacific Northwest, with his wife and two furry monsters that think they're children.
