By K. Weber on June 15, 2012
Format: Paperback
A rambling collection of essays, anecdotes, and assorted madness. The punctuation leaves a lot to be desired, but despite that it's still quite readable. The humor often borders on the demented, sort of a cross between David Sedaris and Happy Tree Friends. There were parts where I laughed, parts where I cringed, and even a few parts where I was tempted to skim - but most of it was quite unforgettable either way. I may think of one story in particular every time I take a shower for the rest of my life. If you're looking for something well outside the mainstream, this will probably amuse you. I'd like to read more of Manion's blather because much of it is really quite funny, but I think I'll wait until it's visited a proofreader first.

Merciful Flush is a collection of essays, anecdotes, and assorted madness. The humor at times is way out there and may be a bit much for some readers. This is certainly one of those books that at time had me rolling with laughter while other times I was cringing. If you like books that are outside of the normal and mainstream then this is the book for you. I like quirky books but this was a bit too quirky for me.

From my blog On Starships and Dragonwings

Merciful Flush is a collection of posts from Lance Manion's blog, which range from disturbing to hilarious and back again over and over. Read at your own risk, you might get grossed out, you might get offended or you might have a cool idea and a laugh.
I first off need to say thank you so much to Lance Manion for sending me a copy of Merciful Flush for review. Merciful Flush is my first unsolicited review copy and it was quite exciting for an ickle fledgling like me! It was also highly entertaining :).

Title: Merciful Flush
Authors: Lance Manion
Pages: 199 (e-copy)
Genre-ish: Adult Humor (think South Park)
Rating: ★★★★☆ - Fairly entertaining, offensive to some I'm sure
Setting: Mostly the real world, though there are a few stories that definitely didn't happen in this world (I hope....) or stray pretty far into someone's imagination ;-).
Premise: As I said, this is a collection of blog posts that are each a stand alone short story. And honestly, this guy has one of the craziest imaginations I've run across in the last week, maybe the last month. Some examples that I can recall off the top of my head: an airplane window turning into a touch pad on the descent, taking a shower so hot your skin melts off, what starfish think to themselves.
Strengths:

Entertaining and compulsive writing, very easy to get sucked into "just one more"
Very very very very imaginative, I can't believe what is now in my mind that wasn't there before....
