new surreal book - "Sunset with a Beard" by Carlton Mellick III
- Hello everyone,
This is me, Carlton Mellick III, and yet another book of the surreal
and bizarre has been released! Most of my fiction is slightly Kafka-
inspired. But then, probably all absurdism/surrealism is.
SUNSET WITH A BEARD
A collection of fourteen stories that attempt to blend two opposing
genres: surreal fiction and science fiction. The resulting journey
through dark and desperate futures of aliens, diseases, and
humanity's own madness is brain-bending and utterly bizarre.
available from Silverlake Publishing at:
PRAISE for Sunset with a Beard:
"Bizarre, twisted, and emotinally raw--Carlton Mellick's fiction is
the literary equivalent of putting your brain in a blender. You'll
laugh while you squirm. Highly recommended!" -- Brian Keene, Author
of The Rising and No Rest for the Wicked
"Carlton Mellick's stories invade your mind like a murder outside
your window. Following in a direct line from Lautremont through
William Burroughs, his stories combine absurdist landscapes with a
cannibalistic, sexual unease. If there's a barcalounger in hell,
Carlton's already got his feet propped up and his pen draining flames
for new ink." -- Ron Dakron, author of Hammers, Newt, and Infra.
"If any living person is set to pick up where Nostradamus left off
and tell us what the future might hold, it's Carlton Mellick III. He
has a wickedly fertile brain and I suspect he has a few extra-sensory
organs. Maybe a pineal gland that registers psychic vibrations. The
truth is out there and Carlton already knows it." -- Mark McLaughlin,
co-author of The Gossamer Eye and editor of The Urbanite
