From the Back Cover
"Easily the craziest, weirdest, strangest, funniest, most obscene writer in America."
- GOTHIC MAGAZINE
"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
"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."
- THE GUARDIAN
"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."

These stories are awesome. (I wanted to say something else here, but Amazon wouldn't let me - see my review of Amazon below.)
It's easy to see why Carlton Mellick III is the leading bizarro author. His talent is incredible. These stories are not just good bizarro. They're good storytelling. Mellick's ability to draw the reader in with a good plot, interesting characters, and a well-told story would make him a hit in any genre. Bizarro lovers should feel blessed that they have him.
Fantastic Orgy is a collection of five short stories. All of them are great. My least favorite was "Ear Cat." But I don't like cats. Or it could be that I'm such a pervert that the other stories tickled my fancy more.
I laughed all the way through. Starting with "Candy Coated," a story about a buff dude with a lollipop head whose style is cramped by the truckers who keep licking him so he can't score with the ladaaaays, I was hooked. The titular story is an awesome read about characters who flock to a staged orgy so they could attract the coolest and latest STDs. There are some really bizarre STDs too.
Mellick doesn't let up. He maintains his style all the way through, keeps the writing tight, and keeps the plot on the mark. Very few wasted words. I wish I could score this a 4.7 or 4.8. It deserves more than a 4, but I'm not ready to give it a 5 because there might be something better out there.
If you like sex with sharks, talking genitals, and gross humor, then you'll get plenty of that in Fantastic Orgy - all of the stories in the collection. Plus, the author includes a set of notes after the stories.Read more ›
And Fantastic Orgy doesn't stop there. Another short in it, called Ear Cat, is probably my new second favorite short story by the author. I LOVED this one. LOVED IT! It has a relatable indoor setting, but is set in a weird future so expect some very strange things to pop-up in it. And I mean "relatable setting" in terms of the story being about agoraphobia, a bit of obsessive compulsive disorder, and hoarding. It was really scary how much I understood what the main character was going through. Which is funny. But also scary. I'm also not a big fan of cats, so the twisted versions of these creatures, and the claustrophobic feel to the story - made for a really tense and engaging read. And like before, wait'll you see where it all leads. These 2 short stories have such killer endings they definitely make the whole thing seem much more epic in scope.
Candy-Coated is a short, ridiculous, and HILARIOUS short story set on Mill Avenue - a popular street I used to go to back in Arizona a lot.Read more ›
* If STD's did modify one's body in weird and sometimes super-hero ways, people would totally have unprotected, fantastic orgies all the time.
* Did you know that mutated Ear, Muscle, and Gentlemen cats from a Kitty of the Month club are excellent therapy? They'll help cure your hoarding urges and agoraphobia!
* It's been about 12 years since I had a wine and cheese pairing class. So, I'm not entirely sure a Stilton would go with a Tropical Sensation lollipop head.
* Shark sex, punk bands, set in the world of SATAN BURGER?! AHHHHHHHHH! Best Story EVER!
* I'm not sure why there are amnesiac porn stars floating around the ocean. You probably don't either. Hmph.
