    One thought on “The Four Gentlemen of the Apocalypse

    1. Melki on said:

      “Get him!” Doctor Beard screamed. “I want his balls!”* You know, that would be kind of a weird line in most books, but in the Bizarro world, it's pretty much par for the course. Here are four strange tales that will rock your world, shake you loose from your foundation and totally wreck your plumbing. Take Douglas Hackle's The Ballad of TERROR TINY TIM in which a suburban Little League game goes horribly wrong and ends in a sex dungeon, clowns, the formation of a new rock band and other [...]

      Mama always said life was rough, that we don’t always get the things we want. Even really basic things — like, for example, an undemolished butthole.— From "The Ballad of TERROR TINY TIM", by Douglas HackleIf the four hombres on the cover are meant to represent the four authors included in this collection, I'd say it's a toss-up between Reade/Brown for the orangutan and the short chap in yellow, Cartledge is probably that George-Washington-pirate-lookin' motherfucker, and Hackle has gotta [...]

      If the God of Absurdity were the One True God, then this book would be his Bible.Four novellas. Four writers. One cover. Lots of fun.The Ballad of TERROR TINY TIM is like the Bad News Bears meets…Deliverance meets…A Christmas Carol? I don’t even know. Douglas Hackle ushers the reader through a litany of odd-situations and incongruous behaviors that, in their own perverted way, make a kind of sense-ish. It’s Hackle’s unwavering commitment to humor and the most ridiculous of premises tha [...]

      We begin with Douglas Hackle’s Ballad of Terror Tiny Tim. This story was the least predictable of the bunch and that is saying something considering the company he is sharing the book with. The absurdity is off the scale, and I am at a loss for where to begin. So many random occurrences and one leads to another, and another, and To a reader not open enough to receive it, this could be seen as a detriment. For me this only added to the experience.Dustin Reade’s The Canal was the funniest of t [...]

      The first (at least I think it's the first) official publication from Strange Edge Publications, spearheaded by Bizarro/Surrealist/Absurdist G. Arthur Brown delivered on its promisse: A weird trip through surreal landscapes, all rounded with an extreme pop appeal. It's accessible surrealism, a rare feat amidst publications on the genre.We start off with "The Ballad of TERROR TINY TIM", by Douglas Hackle. Fun fact: I was once drunk-messaged by Hackle on Facebook, and let me tell you, it was a del [...]

    6. Jason Allen on said:

      The Four Gentlemen of the Apocalypse is modern absurd, surrealism at its finest. The book is a collection of novelettes by some of the greatest writers in the realm of just, simply put, balls-out weirdo-insane fiction. Douglas Hackle, who I've personally been chomping at the bit to see more from since reading Clown Tear Junkies a few years ago, opens this collection with The Ballad of Terror Tiny Tim. In typical Hackle fashion there is not a single predictable moment in this story and it would b [...]

      Four gentlemen, four different stories. All good in their own ways, but quite different from each other as well. Definitely worth a read, especially as an introduction to each writer's work.

      “The Ballad of Terror Tiny Tim” by Douglas HackleThis one has a hilarious and shocking twist in tone and content about midway through the first chapter. I won’t spoil the exact shift, but I will say that the narrator’s desire seems particularly at odds with the fate of his handicapped son during a Little League game. I empathized with the son at first, having, at one time, been the worst player on a Little League team as well back in the late 1980s.During chapter 2, I thought about the d [...]

      Available now on for $2.99 American. 4 novelettes for less than 3 bucks. Sounds like a fair price for stories that damage your brain.

      One of the most ridiculous, crazy, disturbing books I have read in a while. This literal cluster of stories question reality and the use of language is hypnotic.
