Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Easily the craziest, weirdest, strangest, funniest, most obscene writer in America."

"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."
, 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

"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

"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."

"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."

More About the Author

Like a real world Kilgore Trout, cult author CARLTON MELLICK III has been pumping out some of the weirdest, trashiest, most imaginative books that you'll never want to admit you secretly love.

His books are released on a quarterly basis (every January, April, July, and October).

Best known as one of the leading authors of the bizarro fiction movement in literature, he is also one of the most prolific authors of his generation with over 40 books in print since 2001. He won the Wonderland Book Award for his novel "Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland" and has had short stories make it into The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror and The Best Bizarro Fiction of the Decade.

Although many of his earliest works are on the surreal and experimental side, his current style is to take the most ridiculous concepts imaginable and approach them with complete sincerity, as if they are not intended to be ridiculous at all. Always full of tongue-in-cheek humor, social satire, and told in a simplistic straightforward prose style similar to that of children's literature or early pulp fiction, Carlton Mellick III's work is one of a kind, to say the least.

He lives in Portland, OR, the bizarro mecca.

Customer Reviews

This book is a brilliant fun read.
Craig Meikle
I don't want to give too much away so if you have read any of Carlton Mellick's books and you haven't yet read this get on it right away.
Buckeye Nick
It's a tale about conformity, male dominance, fear of female sexuality, corporate evil, lost love, and much, much more.

Format: Paperback
Carlton Mellick III's longest novel in about ten years, The Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland is also one of Mellick's best. It features a diverse cast of characters, my favorites being Mayor McCheese, a samurai Hamburglar, Daniel Togg (the four-armed protagonist), and a complex society of wolf women who live by their own warrior code in the wasteland beyond the Blessed McDonaldland City. There are even forty-five illustrations of the characters interspersed throughout the book.

Despite all the crazy action, it's actually the characters and their relationships that made the book so compelling and fun to read. Daniel Togg is one of Mellick's most fully realized protagonists. Whether he's caught in an awkward social situation with his brother Guy (a Fry Guy, McDonaldland's equivalent of policemen) and Guy's spiteful half-wolf wife, giving instructions on making alcohol out of various McDonald's products, or caught in a power play of love between two wolf women, the reader feels right there with Daniel Togg. He's the perfect guide through this strange and unforgettable world.

Highly recommended for fans of bizarro fiction and also those just reading Mellick for the first time.

mellick is an adept voice for the new counterculture. i'm becoming a fan! i was a bit hesitant with this book...i'm usually not big on post-apocalyptic fiction because it's reaching the 'been-there-done-that' stage in fiction. but mellick treats the subject with just the right sense of humor. he tells a good 'alternative werewolf' tale with a certain serious, respectable story, but still injects humor about the world in which we live. it's filled with war, violence, carnage, biker wolf babes, sex and love...all the things that make life worth living. it's about the only book i can name that is written in the first person by a character who spends an entire chapter inside a wolf's stomach (after being eaten), that is still an easy book to digest. mellick can tell a serious tale...yet he has a good sense of humor about our so-called civilization. mellick is intelligent, at times irreverent...sometimes pleasant...sometimes sick and gruesome. i wasn't sure how i was going to like this book, but i was really impressed. i like sick and gross as long as it is well-written, and mellick can deliver the goods. i'm becoming a mellick fan. if you like stories that are filled with war, violence, women who turn into wolves, carnage, sex and love...(and did i mention women who turn into wolves?)...then wolf this baby down. you'll be glad you did.

Format: Paperback
Carlton Mellick has made his writing career as one of the pillars of the bizarro community. To some, he's already a legend. But with his newest book, it's easy to see that Mellick is still evolving as a storyteller. It seems he's no longer content to put on a weird spectacle, so he's pushing himself into new territories. Warrior Wolf Women is one of his longest books, and strangely enough, it's not very genre-heavy. The post-apocalyptic "Road Warrior" theme isn't so prevalent in Warrior Wolf Women. This isn't a simple adventure of barbarism in a blighted future. In fact, almost half of the story takes place in McDonaldland, a mega-city walled off from the wastelands (similar to the world of Judge Dredd). The landscape of McDonaldland could've been its own book, but Mellick has different intentions for this story.

The main character, Daniel Togg, is exiled from the city to (presumably) die in the apocalyptic wild. Like I said earlier, what unfolds isn't your typical post-apocalyptic story. Warrior Wolf Women becomes a tale of a fierce battle of the sexes. In this world, women slowly evolve into gigantic wolves while the men tend to sprout extra limbs. Both are considered freaks in civilized society, and are thrown out of the city and into the wild. In the wastelands, the Wolf Women enslave the men, and the men have rallied to defend themselves. The two factions are at war with one another, and Mellick uses this setting to tell a romance between Daniel Togg and his childhood friend, November. The two are separated by the weird gender roles society has thrust upon them. They are trapped in a cycle, as the women kill the men to survive, and vice versa.

Some characters manage to break out of the prescribed roles of this world.

Carlton Mellick III has a talent for making the unbelievable seem real; throughout each of his novels/novellas, I really feel as if I'm a part in the story, that the story is completely plausible no matter how ridiculous it is. When I get to reading one of his books, it's as if everything that I know can't happen is thrown out the window, and my reality is replaced with a different one; a crazier one, but infinitely more interesting than the one I currently have. After each book of his I read, I sit down for an hour or so to let some of its nonsensical parts sink in, and then daydream about what life would really be like if we were put in the kind of situations that Carlton Mellick III puts us in. And then, for a while, the stuff doesn't really seem that farfetched. He's got a talent for writing that I wish I could emulate.

Onto the actual book though, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I'm used to reading CM3 titles that are around 90 - 100 pages long, and I didn't know what a long Mellick book would read like. I really like his novellas because I can sit down and read them within the course of an hour or so, without losing any of the material by trying to skim over stuff or read too fast. It's almost like watching a movie, and I can appreciate a book like that. They appeal to the rush of today's age. But, after sitting down and picking up Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland, I can honestly say that I couldn't put the book down after starting into it. I read through the entire time in four or five hours, and it was intense. It seemed to have just the right mix of plot and shock for me; it had three or four sex scenes, a good amount of gore, a good theme and plot, a storyline that kept me guessing, and the Hamburgler. What more can I ask for?
