Squish the Fish: A Tale of Dating and Debauchery by Dave Lundy

REVIEWERS ARE SAYING:“Think ‘American Pie’ meets ‘The Hangover’. A clever, raunchy story that’ll lead you into a tailspin of sex, booze, and football.”“Holy mother is it funny… and no, it’s not without a lot of heart; the type of heart you can only find in places like Buffalo, NY in the dead of winter… after four consecutive Super Bowl losses.”“[Fellow] ladies, this is a must read if you want a glimpse inside the minds of men. Enlightening, jaw-dropping, and hilarious!”“Shameless, laugh-out-loud funny! Tucker Max type of escapades wrapped up in a plot with more twists-and-turns than a pole dancer!”OVERVIEW:Shortly after Robert’s “summer romance” with Jennifer began, his college buddy, Zabka, returned to Buffalo for a visit. The two friends had a night out that the police report described as, “Beyond insane, even for knuckleheads that inebriated.” Since then, Jennifer’s leash around Robert’s neck just kept getting shorter.Now it’s mid-December, and Zabka is planning an even bigger road-trip back to frigid Buffalo. He envisions a weekend overflowing with beer and girls that, in his words, “climaxes” with the Bills squishing the Dolphins to clinch the division’s playoff spot. But if Jennifer discovers his plans, there’s no telling what she’ll do.Will drunken chaos spin out of control again? What unexpected trouble is flying up from Miami? When relationships, friendships, and rivalries collide, can anything survive? And where did the midget strippers come from?! Nothing can prepare this incompatible cast of characters for this wild winter weekend.

Straight after the Bend by S M Mala

Bea is disillusioned with love and her sciatica is making her walk around with a limp (though certain people think it’s more mental than physical). After losing her mother, her heavy heart makes everything seem bleak. Then someone causes a major shock to her head, heart and not to mention her libido.Could Dr Mylo Kearney be the man of her dreams? Not only is he a successful osteopath but he’s drop dead gorgeous though there’s something about him she can’t quite figure out. Is he too perfect or is he simply not revealing all about himself?Then an over protective daddy isn’t helping matters, being obstinate and telling Bea not to rush into relationships, but acting like a weirdo, which causes her immense embarrassment not to mention the women’s clothing around his home that certainly are not her late mother’s.All she wants to do is go straight after taking a massive emotional bend in her life, but nothing is ever going to be easy for Bea. A contemporary adult love story with a few humorous twists and turns along with way.

Dead Monkeys by A. L. Lorentz

“A remarkably amusing and insightful novella.” – Ryan Hyatt, author of the Terrafide cyberpunk series Robert Lopez invented technology to change the world, not destroy it.Starting a philosophical debate with his “braintroller” that allows animals to speak to each other and us, Robert inadvertently helps humankind stumble headlong into the apocalypse. In a near-future miasma of poor decision-making and economic principles gone awry, Robert must navigate the dystopian world he helped create while searching for safety, and maybe, if he’s lucky, redemption too.If you like to laugh at our own fatalistic human tendencies don’t miss Dead Monkeys, by A. L. Lorentz. An amplification of dystopian tropes taken to equally comedic and terrifying heights, Dead Monkeys will have you laughing and crying about how we treat ourselves and the changing world around us.
