God and the Magnificent Bastard By Adam Wright
Paperback: $9.34
Prints in 3-5 business days
I know what you're thinking, "not another novel about God having a temper tantrum over the state of humanity so he leaves the Afterlife to go and hide somewhere in time where he can't be found,... More > thusly sending the universe into chaos with one slightly peeved chap and his loyal but idiotic companion being forced to locate their creator in the time-space continuum to stop all of existence from ceasing completely". And I'm sorry about that. But I want to make some money! One part edgy black comedy, one part religious satire, one part time travel adventure and one part midget-fest, God and the Magnificent Bastard is not a book to be read aloud to your unsuspecting and impressionable young child, but rather an irreverent and quirky leap into a world of causality, existentialism and the occasional midget brawl. So open up these cheaply-made pages and have a read. You never know, you might even like it. Plus there's even a sex scene! With swear words and everything!< Less
The Autobiography of Jesus X By Ross Allaire
eBook (ePub): $2.19
It's not what you think. Unless you think everything is wrong. Imagine if Kurt Vonnegut and Hunter Thompson collaborated on a new version of The Bible, and you kinda get the gist. The Autobiography... More > of Jesus X is not for the faint of heart! Here is the prophet: a cynical, dreadlocked pothead crackpot who's done all sorts of despicable things. For which He wonders if forgiveness is possible. Because now he is a only a ghost of the God he once was - now retired. After this one incarnation as a human being on Earth, he quit. As God, he had become indifferent. But as a tall black Jew with blue eyes and red hair in the Roman Empire, he proved to be too smart for his own good. Or maybe just too human. He tried to quit. The Autobiography of Jesus X is either the new Bible or the most offensive book ever written, or both. Maybe neither. This is part sci-fi/fantasy, part exposé memoir, and part stand-up comedy. He pretty much frames it as His last message to humanity. So we might want to listen. Or read. Or whatever.< Less
