Format: Paperback
Seven Seagulls for a Single Nipple by Troy Chambers is sixty-two pages of pure wild, insane yum.

One day, whilst tagging along on the chest of Badagris, the voodoo bad-ass priest and lead singer of the Haitian metal/europop group The Moshing Erzulies, Wilmorn the nipple catches sight of Sister Patina Beaver, nun in the Church of the Holy Menstrual Blood.

Wilmorn immediately falls in love with Patina. Determined to be her mate, Wilmorn makes a deal with the Seven Seagull Gods, who grant Wilmorn a nipply body; however, Wilmorn must kill Patina's true love within seven days or Wilmorn will become a lobster baby and servant to the Seven Seagull Gods.

The Seagull Gods are not without... um, compassion -- they provide Wilmorn with a helpmeet and guide: Stalin the nicotine-addicted, serial-rapist lobster baby.

Together, Wilmorn and Stalin take to the rough-and-tumble streets of New York City, first to find Wilmorn's love, then to find Jesus Christ and kick his ass, winning Patina's nunly love, overcoming (and raping) snooty young mothers and fathers, crack addicts, BDSM nipple fetishists along the way.

Seven Seagulls for a Single Nipple claims to be "The Little Mermaid" meets Hellraiser; indeed, Troy Chambers delivers on this promise. Combining the tragic grittiness of Andersen's original fairytale with Disney's lighthearted humor and Hellraiser's horror, Seven Seagulls is quirky, fun, funny, sad, tragic and incredibly entertaining. Troy Chambers has hit it home with this tragic, insane love story.

I can't wait to read what he comes up with next.

I'm sure that when Troy Chambers sat down to write this novel, he went about it with the same kind of vigour that I read it with. Only, Chambers is obviously a huge dreamer and a twisted man. Me, I was just the innocent bystander that happened to chance upon his descent into madness. And hell, I'd witness his madness over and over again if it was as entertaining as this. This novel is some hilarious stuff!

Chambers is obviously very comfortable with the world he has created in his head, and it translates to the page phenomenally. While this is one of the more extreme novels of the NBAS '11 group it's also one of the most colourful and strangely cathartic as well.

The entire novel centres around Chambers' ability to surround his cast and with some of the most outlandish situations imaginable, while still keeping things flowing smoothly and on a direct path to a clear ending. I seriously have to hand it to this man. Chambers is not only coming out of the gates with a brilliant novel in tow, but he's coming out screaming bloody murder, with the intent to take the whole damned place hostage.

Top notch bizarro storytelling from the young (too young to be this good) up and coming bizarro talent Troy Chambers. Say what you want about him... he is a natural writer with a truly twisted sense of humor. This is a book about true love, tail-rape, and nuns with porno names... oh and did I mention the protagonist is A NIPPLE! J.R. Hayes said it best. "No, no, no... this is beautiful, this is art."

And this IS art. Very, very good art... and very funny. It earns every star.

A nipple named Wilmorn falls in love with a woman and bargains with the Seagull gods for a chance to win her. Only she's a nun. And a lesbian. And he has to kill her true love to win a soul so he can have a life with her. Man, things are rough for nipples these days...

First off, this is the weirdest book in the 2011-2012 New Bizarro Author Series so far. It's also the best story featuring a talking nipple I've ever read.

This is one of those books I can hardly think of a way to describe beyond the summary. Like I mentioned, Wilmorn is a talking nipple that makes a pact with the Seagull Gods. His naivete is actually a little charming and nicely balanced by Stalin, the baby-faced lobster demon who was a serial rapist in a previous life. Yes, you read that right. No, I did not make that up.

It takes quite a bit for a book to make me shake my head in disbelief but I caught myself doing just that several times during this books slim 60 pages. Most of those were because of Stalin's actions. The ending was a bit of surprise.

Troy Chambers is a madman and I'll give him another shot sometime down the road. That's all I have. I don't really know what else I can say about this.

Do you like voodoo? Eh? I do. Do what? Enjoy this book immensely!

Troy Chambers' short, hilarious novella about a love-struck sentient nipple searching the streets of New York for the Lesbian-Nun Love of his life was one of the funnest books I have read in a long time.

The Nipple (named "Wilmorn") is accompanied on his quest by a baby-faced lobster creature with a foul mouth, a nicotine addiction, and an unusual habit (which I won't get into here, but was struck by the "Johnny-The-Homicidal-Maniac-esque" humor of the dialogue while he engages in it).

The book is funny and sweet, disturbing and blasphemous, and above all highly readable. I look forward to reading more of Troy's writings and I can't recommend this one highly enough.

Five stars!
