Bizarro Fiction?

Post by NikeX » Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:04 pm

Com'on! We are obscure! Just the fact that we live (or play 3DO).
After reading everything Abe Kobo has written, I was sucked into the Bizarro Ficiton Genre.
Here is my small collection:

Andersen Prunty reads more fluent than Carlton Mellick III, I think.

Fake War is a parody of all wars. Wonderful, easy to read, funny.
Satan Burger is great: During Armageddon, all kinds of mutated creatures lurk around every corner, people kill everything, and then comes Satan and opens a fast food restaurant!

A not so good example: D. Harlan Wilson's Pseudo City is sadly only a concatenation of bizarro, the story is drowned.
Anyone?
if the photo is too offensive, I'll take it off.

Never even heard of the genre. Looked it up, and am somewhat intrigued.

another one. feels like Abe Kobo's Secret Rendezvous.
A class listens to a teacher talking about a bipolar panda / polar bear learning chinese (ALL THE TIME, EACH DAY!), while one student flees to the tunnels and meets
contradictory people and falls from one absurdity to the next. plus: Everyone in class has to keep it's hand on the table, all the time!
