"TV Snorted My Brain is the funniest book I have ever read." - M.C. O'Neill, author of The Ancients and the Angels series

"There oughta be a law against Bradley Sands. Once again America's satirical arsonist sets pop culture on fire. TV Snorted My Brain ties the King Arthur legend to the tracks and runs it over with a TV-powered train." - Patrick Wensink, author of Broken Piano for President

It's super fun to read and keeps you wondering what he's going to do next.
Peter Goutis
This is a Bizarro young-adult novel, which means a young adult novel with gross sexy parts and comic ultraviolence.

Fans of Sands work will dig the references to his other stories that are peppered throughout TV Snorted My Brain.

The product description gives you a good idea of what the book is about so I won't go into that. From the very first sentence I was hooked. I read until I got to the last page and was disappointed that I had finished.
Artie is a great character who meets a bunch of strange people as he makes his journey to save television land. I laughed out loud at certain points and found myself rooting for Artie hoping that he would be successful in his mission.
If you have read anything by Mr. Sands, you need to read this one as well.If you haven't I say this is a great place to start and I look forward to what he comes up with next!

This is exactly the type of story that I've come to expect when I dive into something that Bradley Sands has written. It's weird, yet there is a clear story here. It's super fun to read and keeps you wondering what he's going to do next. The characters aren't normal, but you find yourself really caring about them still.

They say that it should be a goal to learn and understand all of the classic story forms and plots if you want to become a writer. This story is a great example of what can be done when sticking to one of those story lines. It's something you have never seen or heard of for sure.

Bradley seems to just keep getting better and better with each new release. I can't wait to see what he does next.

"TV Snorted my Brain" is the funniest book I have ever read. The Arthurian myth is so easy to parody, this is true, but when told from the viewpoint of a teenage scumbag, one can't help but love it. Artie Pendragon probably listens to Crass all day, yet doesn't understand a freaking lyric. Who cares? Anarchy is anarchy, right? Every page of this novel had me busting out in total laughter. I do mean every page. It's King Arthur on Ritalin. No, I'm not kidding. Just read it and make sure you have spare underwear. You will need it.

TV Snorted My Brain is a hysterical, mind bending trip inside your TV where Artie Pendragon learns he has become king of TV Land but his rise to power is thwarted by his uncle--a professional wrestler, and impostor to the throne. His Uncle has taken Artie's mother, his kingdom, and his queen. Artie will not wait for everyone to go anarchy to blow up his uncle's head and with the help of an eclectic crew of knights Artie is on a quest to do just that.

Artie Pendragon is the Bizarro Holden Caulfield, except Artie Pendragon is kind of likable. Holden Caulfield sucks! I've never been disappointed by a Bradley Sands story. They are always funny, surreal(or irreal), or thought-provoking, with edge of your seat action.
Fans of Sands work will dig the references to his other stories that are peppered throughout TV Snorted My Brain. I did.
TV Snorted My Brain rules! Don't wait for everyone to go Anarchy get this book.

Format: Paperback
It's difficult to say much about "TV Snorted My Brain" without ruining the experience or spoiling the story. Author Bradley Sands has once again displayed a gift with bizarro fiction and its forms while also employing older methods in a strange synthesis of compelling literary modes. This is a fun story, short but evenly paced and in the same satirical vein of Sands' "Rico Slade Will F***ing Kill You."

What can be said about the plot is this: our protagonist is high school student Artie. He is a self-professed anarchist who wants to do a lot of anarchist things like blow up his school, burn lots of money, and kill his stupid mom. He does none of this because the rest of the world has yet to descend into anarchy. Except the blow up school bit, but he doesn't get to that because in his quest for some double-"A" batteries to power the timer on his pipe bomb, he gets sucked into the family television along with everyone else in the house. What happens once there TV land you'll have to read.

"TV..." is similar to other bizarro tales that seek to rewrite, retell, or otherwise improve older well-known narratives like Gina Ranalli's "Chemical Gardens" or Vincent W. Sakowski's "Not Quite One of the Boys." Where it differs is in that instead of a straight rewrite, Sands has used the plot to make a really nice commentary about the state of entertainment media over the last three decades. This does date many of the jokes and precludes "TV..." from timeless status, but it is still funny.

More impressive than the social commentary is Sands' use of the classical hero's quest in a less than epic-length work while maintaining the import and urgency such a framework demands.

- An adventure that could only come from the mind of Bradley Sands. As per his standard, Mr. Sands tells an outrageous tale in his outrageous fashion. Personally I think that is a great thing and I look forward to reading anything he puts out.
This time around, we have a modernized, TV-infused, uber-bizarro retelling of the ol' Excalibur tale. Does the shtuff go down? You bet your sweet tuckass the shtuff goes down. It's like a narrated version of a televised ruckus party up in here! Grab your remotes and tune in right now!
But wait! "What about the wild caricatures of professional wrestlers?" Oh yeah, got `em. "Wacked out TV shows?" Well duh... "But there can't possibly be sex, violence, and foul language..." OK, who are you and why are you wasting your valuable time by asking me these questions instead of reading the book?
But wait! Act now, and we will throw in an extra 42 cents worth of absolutely nothing! That is more nothing than you shake a remote control at. Operators are standing by.
