|Reviews for Doktor Bizarro's Bookshelf of Horrors|
| Michael Panush 10/2/09 . chapter 17
Sounds like a very wierd and depressing book. I think one thing these review might need is excerpts from the book, ones that show particularly egregious examples of the bad writing you mention. Maybe something to put up in the future. Anyway, good review and I look forward to the next one.

I have to say, the bit about plants blowing their load in people's faces was hysterical. Yeah, Eragon had this coming.
| Michael Panush 8/28/09 . chapter 15
That was pretty good. I think you might have been a bit too hard on some of the aspects of the book. I mean, giving serial killers cheesy trade names is a huge part of their mythos, going all the way back to Jack the Ripper, so even if they are a little silly, it's just following the historical formula. This book did seem like it was entirely created to set up a sequel though, which isn't very cool. I look forward to your next book, whatever it may be.

Why wasn't Atlas Shrugged on the list?
And, thanks, need some of these.
| Noniplod 8/7/09 . chapter 14
Thank you for the suggestions! I've noted most of them down.
I noticed that you had a book by Alastair Reynolds on your list, have you read "Diamond Dogs, Turquoise Days"? It's two stories set in the same universe. I think that you'd probably like "Diamond Dogs" (I haven't finished the second one yet) and I would heartily recommend it. )
After this chapter, at least you'll know that your future Zomborgs are well-read. )

This was a pretty fun read. No Clark Reeper Tales though? No, I'd be kidding myself to think that my scribbles could be placed in the same pantheon as these writers. But I didn't think Umberto Eco stopped writing. I read some of Name of the Rose, but I enjoyed his other books, Baudalino and Foccault's Pendulum (one of my favorite books of all time) a lot more. But those are niggling issues. Nice job and I await your next installment eagerly.
| Michael Panush 8/2/09 . chapter 13
This was a good summary of the various horrors of the book, but I think 120 Days of Sodom was a political satire, meant to skewer the self-righteous French nobility, clergy, justice system and wealthy. The movie does the same with the fascists of Italy. It may be a bit too nasty for your tastes, and it probably is for mine, but I wouldn't discount it as art just because of a lot nasty bits.
| Michael Panush 8/2/09 . chapter 12
This was a decent review, and it does seem like an entertaining experiment/prank on that publishing company. In their defense though, I don't think most self-publsihing companies read what their producing. They just kind of accept the manuscript and print it up. The one I used offered editing, but we didn't take it. The book sounds funny, and 'Naked Came the Stranger' sounds pretty cool too.
| Monochromatic Stains 7/29/09 . chapter 13
That actually sounds like a pretty cool book, I'm ashamed to say.
| Loki the Jackal 7/22/09 . chapter 6
Makes me want to read it...
| Loki the Jackal 7/22/09 . chapter 5
And this addition to Bookshelf of Horror's is what makes me favorite this collection of jewels.
| Loki the Jackal 7/22/09 . chapter 2
You killed me with that Rabid Wolverine line.
Can I put that in my favorite quote list thing on my profile?(or I'll take it down if its a no)
Beauty of a work.
| TorgoTheWhite 7/13/09 . chapter 4
Read the first three chapters and found them to be almost as entertaining as the Overmen story. Great, in-depth analysis of contemporary literature in everyday language. My AP English teacher would've loved you!
I must admit you are pretty brave to write some of the reviews. Hopefully your martial arts skills would come in handy against the hordes of scientologists showing up at your doorsteps (just kidding :) )
| Michael Panush 7/13/09 . chapter 11
A nice review of a wonderfully awful story. I don't think the Eye of Argon is that bad, well, it's so bad, that's in incredibly entertaining and utterly hilarious. I think you should have posted a few more passages, which are just about the ultimate in bad writing and bring a smile to my face whenever I think about them. But this review was still very good. I wonder what book you'll be doing next?
| moongazer7 7/12/09 . chapter 5
very true, this book is a bunch of lies and this is coming from a former Christian.
