Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for Carlton Mellick III
 
"Easily the craziest, weirdest, strangest, funniest, most obscene writer in America." -- GOTHIC MAGAZINE
 
"Carlton is an acquired taste, but he hooks you like a drug." --HUNTER SHEA, author of Forest of Shadows
 
"The most original novelist working today? The most outrageous? The most unpredictable? These aren't easy superlatives to make; however, Carlton Mellick may well be all of those things, behind a canon of books that all irreverently depart from the form and concepts of traditional novels, and adventure the reader into a howling, dark fantasyland of the most bizarre, over-the-top, and mind-warping inventiveness." --EDWARD LEE, author of Header
 
"Carlton Mellick III is a genius with an insanely beautiful imagination." --JOE AUGUSTYN, writer of Night of the Demons
 
"Carlton Mellick III has the craziest book titles... and the kinkiest fans!"  --CHRISTOPHER MOORE, author of The Stupidest Angel

"If you haven't read Mellick you're not nearly perverse enough for the twenty first century."  --JACK KETCHUM, author of The Woman and The Girl Next Door

"Carlton Mellick III is one of bizarro fiction's most talented practitioners, a virtuoso of the surreal, science fictional tale." --CORY DOCTOROW, author of Little Brother

 
"Mellick's career is impressive because, despite the fact that he puts out a few books a year, he has managed to bring something new to the table every time... Every Mellick novel is packed with more wildly original concepts than you could find in the current top ten New York Times bestsellers put together." --VERBICIDE
 
"Mellick's guerrilla incursions combine total geekboy fandom and love with genuine, unbridled outsider madness. As such, it borders on genius, in the way only true outsider art can." --FANGORIA
 
"Bizarre, twisted, and emotionally raw--Carlton Mellick's fiction is the literary equivalent of putting your brain in a blender." --BRIAN KEENE, author of The Rising and Dead Sea
 
"I'm a huuuuge Bizarro fan. This new strain of cheerfully transgressive weird fiction is to me the most vibrant, exciting, genre-mangling scene in all of strange literature today. And no one holds dominion over this blossoming underground phenomenon like the godfather of Bizarro, Carlton Mellick III. With the most impressive sideburns in imaginative lit since Isaac Asimov, and a brain that squirts out more shamelessly playful originality in any given chapter than most artists will accomplish in their entire lives, he's the poster boy. The Elvis. As well he should be." --JOHN SKIPP, co-author of The Bridge
 
"It's not unusual to blow through a Mellick book in one sitting. They're fast-paced with an endless number of surprises, making it tough not to keep turning pages. When the end comes, I'm left with that done-too-soon feeling that I always love experiencing." --RAZORCAKE
 
"A wormhole of disturbing surrealism and absurd satire." --VICE MAGAZINE
 
"Carlton Mellick III exemplifies the intelligence and wit that lurks between its lurid covers. In a genre where crude titles are an art in themselves, Mellick is a true artist." --THE GUARDIAN

"His fiction blends bizarre scenarios mixed with horror, action, and even more bizarre actions to create fiction that toes the line between the absurd and the dark places of the mind... Shocking yet entertaining" --THE EXAMINER


"I imagine Mellick as a Willy Wonka-type character, someone with personal access to another world, a world of his own creation, but due to its mind-bending energy, he's lost control of it, and it continues to thrive even without him there to pull the strings.  And I like the idea of that." --BOOKIE MONSTER

 
"The imp of the perverse." --3AM MAGAZINE
 
"Just as Pop had Andy Warhol and Dada Tristan Tzara, the Bizarro movement has its very own P. T. Barnum-type practitioner. He's the mutton-chopped author of such books as Electric Jesus Corpse and The Menstruating Mall, the illustrator, editor, and instructor of all things Bizarro, and his name is Carlton Mellick III." --DETAILS MAGAZINE
 
"Discussing Bizarro literature without mentioning Mellick is like discussing weird-ass muttonchopped authors without mentioning Mellick." --CRACKED.COM

Even though he says he doesn't want to be remembered for this book in his introduction, I think this may be Carlton Mellick's finest hour.
So far.
Of course.
I mean: "his finest hour so far."

This book is exactly like a romantic comedy. Because it is one. And secretly, everybody likes romantic comedies. Those who speak out against them love them the most. (see how I did that? Now, anyone who comments on this review and says "I don't like romantic comedies!" will look like a fool who REALLY likes romantic comedies.)

It is the typical boy-meets-girl-but-girl-is-a-succubus-from-hell-and-she-is-carrying-the-boy's-child-and-wants-to-marry-him-but-first-she-takes-him-to-hell-to-meet-her-family-who-are-actually-nicer-than-the-boy's-family-story that we have all read and watched so many times before.

Mellick spares us none of the traditional romantic comedy trappings: The Sumo Wrestling Best Friend. The Christian Business Man and Kung-Fu Expert Brother-in-Law. The Man Who Lives In A Lego House.
Sure. We've seen it a hundred times.
But, somehow, Mellick manages to keep it all fresh. The plot never lags or suffers and the dialogue is witty and realistic.

Also, Mellick re-thinks the afterlife in a pretty interesting way, which I feel could be its own book. Even though it is only mentioned in, like, one or two chapters in this one. But still...

I mean...

Seriously you need to read this.

Just about everything in this book is ingenious, which means it's completely full of genius inside. Mellick has really outdone himself this time. Everything from a master lego builder who lives in a house full of legos he built himself to the cute-as-hell (and from hell) succubus demon he falls in love with after he gets her preggars. This is the first Bizarro romantic comedy, and like any good chick flick, I found myself tearing up by the end of it. But that doesn't mean it's without horrific blood and violence, complete with brutal demons, gigantic rampaging lego dinosaurs, and a group of killer kung-fu devout christians of christ. Oh, and a sumo wrestler. A drunken one. Gotta love that. This is one of the most enjoyable books I've ever read, it's laugh-out-loud hilarious, and it's better than any movie playing in the theaters right now. (And with ticket prices these days buying a book is actually cheaper than going to the movies.) It's definitely going to find a spot in my top ten favorite Carlton Mellick books of all time. And this is... (wait, I have to recount) Mellick's 32ND book. Woly crap! And I've read 29 of those and there has never been one that disappoints. If you've never read any of the author's books before, I Knocked Up Satan's Daughter would be a great starting point and you could just work your way back from there. You can't go wrong.

In Carlton Mellick III's introduction he talks about romantic comedies and how no matter how much he hates them he can't stop watching them. I have to agree with him, there is something about romantic comedies that suck you in. It doesn't matter how bad you may hate the actors, if it's on, most people will sit and watch it until the end. Even if they hate the fact they'll never get those hours or minutes back.
I never felt like I wasted any of my life reading I Knocked up Satan's Daughter, though. Mellick did good with following the rom-com formula, and he bizarro'd it up well.
This is the story of Johnathon, a loser who lives his life for Lego building, regardless of what anybody has to say about it. He dreams of one day having his Lego sculptures appreciated as a true art form. But all his dreams look to be shattered when Lici, a pregnant demon shows up on his door step. It's the classic story of two people from opposite worlds, only one is from earth, the other happens to be from Hell.
Filled with demons, kung-fu Christians and Lego's that come to life all tied neatly into a love story, this book is sure to entertain CM3's fans and could possibly gain him some new ones.

I'd argue the structure and theme are very different from CMIII's other works, but all throughout are telltale signs of my favorite author. Ideas and descriptions that make it easy to picture a world you've never thought of before (an entire house built of legos), and every character with a full personality [the sumo friend/the pastor brother-in-law (by the way, I know this guy!!! what a kook)]. ...and, NOT ME!!!, but "a guy I know" even shed a tear while reading this. Don't know how this would come across to a first time reader of Mellick, but if you are an open-minded reader, I don't see how you could be disappointed with this purchase.

The story is fun. The editing is awful. There were so many typos and instances of incorrect grammar that I was tempted to put it down, but I was too interested in how it would end.

If you go into this book with no expectations you might be pleasantly surprised. It's full of gore and kink and shock, but also a lot of genuine heart. It's also very funny. If you read the back cover you will probably think it's idiotic or ridiculous, and it is... but it works. It also helped to imagine the whole scenario as some kind of twisted John Hughes meets Tim Burton and they direct a Clive Barker screen adaptation. Its also very short, 152 pages, so it's a quick read with a lot packed in. Give it a shot. Remember, if you only read what everyone else reads you will think like everyone else.
