Synopsis: Andy and Bridget like to travel. Their windowless van is their home. Speeding across the Texas countryside they pick up hitchhikers and weary travelers who see the pair as a nice couple showing southern hospitality. However, Andy and Bridget are not what they seem. In their plain looking van, there is no telling which town they will pass through or who will they pick up next.
Bookish Things: 200 pages. The cover is simplistic but very apt. This story is most certainly not for the faint hearted folk.

Gary is a fucking loser. He spends his days jerking off to hentai and fantasizing about his ideal life. ne day while sitting in his hidden spot in the woods, he encounters the perfect girl.

Fat Off Sex and Violence is the most extreme work yet by one of the most exciting new voices in horror. Don’t try to resist, give in to your worst instincts. Welcome to Shane McKenzie’s world.
Bookish Things: 130 pages. The cover is delightfully sinful and fits nicely with the WTF feel of the whole story.
Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.06 or paperback for $10.95.
My first Shane McKenzie book and while not as disturbing as I was expecting, still enough gore and violence to keep me reading.
I didn’t love nor hate this, but I can’t really fault it either because it is what it is. Graphic horrific content. I felt a little removed from the action in this, almost as if I were a spectator behind glass. It might have been the character and my inability to relate to him, more than any writing style or technique.
Certainly not for those with weak stomachs or sympathetic vomiters, Fat off sex and violence should intrigue as much as it disturbs with its graphic content and explosive conclusion.
I’m keen to see what else Shane has on offer, this will not be the last of his I read.
