Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wait, You're Not a Centaur" is... a lovely load of stories... accompanied by very stylish illos. Our favorite one is probably about Bolt Thrower meeting Jesus, but you go ahead and pick your own." --Arthur Magazine

Like some dark Gothic automobile, half Panzer tank, half muscle car [...] crashing head on with gratuitous violence into a wall of art & humor/death & destruction, Nate climbs out as one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, brandishing a guitar shaped like an oversized medieval axe and carrying a white kitten dressed as a matador named 'Trevor'. Artist. Writer. Composer. Musician. Performer, and an upright citizen to boot... this book is truly inspiring." --Adam Jones, Tool (from the introduction)

I hate this book. --Tom Araya, Slayer.

I mean really, try doing it even once and you will discover it is pretty difficult.

MACE is an instant hit, and with song like 4 horsemen, ballad of the bullied demons, and snuggle tummy, you really can't go wrong.
J. Larson
As I said I bougt this book a year and a half ago and the CD has been in my car ever since.

the CD is worth the price by itself--get's as much play as anything else in my library.
down to earth and mysteriously magical lo-fi-hiphop-deathmetal-folk-gospel -- what a wonderful discovery.

I got this book about a year and a half ago and it is a great read. Stories are funny, sad, disturbing, confusing, arousing and just good old fun. The CD (Ghost Alarm) in the other hand. Simply a work of genious. As I said I bougt this book a year and a half ago and the CD has been in my car ever since. Even after I bought a new car and actually had the time to clean my car out and reorganize my cd case Ghost Alarm is definetly back in my rotation. The combo pack of CD & book is definetly worth it and anyone will surely enjoy both.

Nate Denver is one of the most creative artists I have ever heard. From his fables of Snuggle Tummy to battles with demons, no matter what he writes it's always entertaining. I saw him play at Che Cafe in San Diego back in 2002 and it might have changed my life forever.

The book is amazing, at first I opened and laughed, then I started to think about it. It would be very hard to write 50 short stories that are exactly 50 words long. I mean really, try doing it even once and you will discover it is pretty difficult.

I highly suggest this book to anyone that loves entertaining stories and music.

Despite the fact that this book's first sentence has a bad typo (an apostrophe error), it is a wonderful little book of drawings and surreal ultra-short stories that are somewhat like children's fairy tales for adults. As a bonus, there is an album by Nate Denver's Neck that is one of my top albums of all time: lo-fi, lyrical, catchy, deep, with mellow beats and interesting samples, NDN is as adept at songs as he is literary writing and drawing. Being both a book and CD, this is well worth the price. Funny, serious, surreal, honest/heartfelt, personal, and imaginative.
