In a first in the seven-year history of BURNING BULB PUBLISHING, we are pleased to announce that TODAY (August 29, 2015) we have made history by releasing not one, but TWO exciting new books to our collection of amazing literature!
First, for the Bizarro/over-the-top fiction/erotica fans, let me present to you DR. ORGASM, by the incomparable WOL-VRIEY:
Communism = the political doctrine outlawing ‘coming’ (i.e. the female orgasm).
Courtney Taylor is young, intelligent, beautiful, and successful. She also has a boyfriend who loves her deeply.
The problem is, no matter what Courtney does, she can’t climax during sex.
When Florence Rigid’s communist forces destroy the city of Metaphor, Courtney and her friends Teresa, Highball, Miki, and Heather are cast into the midst of a quest to find the only person able to save the land of Innuendo—Dr. Carol Orgasm, wanted by the communists for developing the O-Pill, a wonder drug that grants women sexual ecstasy on demand.
The communists will do anything to get their hands on the O-Pill and prevent its reaching the millions of Innuendo’s women.
But Courtney desperately wants that pill too. And so it’s now a race between Courtney and the communists to find Dr. Orgasm first.
And Courtney has no choice but to win this race.
She must win it: For her own orgasm . . . and for the freedom of female sexuality everywhere.
Second, for the fans of classic horror, NELSON W. PYLES’ latest release EVERYTHING HERE IS A NIGHTMARE will be sure to satisfy your dark cravings:
“Pyles makes it look easy. His characters come instantly alive with the cocksure verve and swagger of rock stars.”- Daniel Knauf, creator of HBO’s “Carnivale,” Executive Producer/Writer, ABC’s “The Blacklist.”
The critically acclaimed author of Demons, Dolls and Milkshakes returns with fifteen tales of horror and suspense with Everything Here is a Nightmare.
From zombies in the old west, to a young boy tempted by the Devil. From vampires with romantic longing, to an abandoned lighthouse haunted by vengeful spirits. From a serial killer getting unholy justice, to a haunted English race car, Nelson W Pyles invites you to explore a landscape of fear, suspense and horror.
Take his hand and hold on tight. Remember that whatever you find here, whatever you see, no matter what you might think it could be…know this:
Everything Here is a Nightmare

– The Fixer.
In Springfield, Massachusetts, Melanie Catchpole is hired to fetch back a magic teddy bear worth millions of dollars from a warehouse across town.
Problem is, the warehouse is down in Springfield’s O-Zone—that totally weird sector of the city where Bizarro fell to Earth. The ‘O’ is a fairytale land, a place where dreams and nightmares literally live and breathe.
Worse still, the gingers—mutant cannibals—prowl the O. The gingers have already eaten everyone else Melanie’s employers sent to get back the magic teddy bear.
Accompanied by the handsome but ruthless Doug Fisher (who she finds sexy but doesn’t dare entrust her heart to), Melanie enters the O-Zone.
Melanie and Doug are instantly caught up in an adventure they’d never have believed credible even if written as fiction . . . and Melanie’s used to experiencing the very weird as the norm.
And now, additionally, there’s a mystery to unravel: What does the dark, freezing-cold being called The Fixer want with Mary, the barkeep’s daughter?

From John Russo, co-author of Night of the Living Dead™:
“By now almost everyone knows that the concept of the modern flesh-eating zombie originated in the sixties with Night of the Living Dead™. That’s why I think that this anthology of short stories paying homage to that fact is a wonderful idea. When I was asked to write such a story, I was told that each and every story in the book would have to take place in or around the time, in 1968, when the horror classic that I co-authored took place…
Perhaps, for you, dear reader, some of the stories you will read in these pages will take their place as some of your very own favorites. Please step back with me into the 1960’s – a time of peaceniks, rednecks and unspeakable zombie horror!!”

Then his day gets worse:
Tom is transported across space-time to a nightmare version of Boston, one where the Bizarro virus has transformed half the population into cannibals.
Worst of all, Tom discovers that in this new Boston, he’s the infamous gangster Pussypalm, wanted for robbing the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston a year ago.

With 130 people left dead during his bank heist and six billion dollars missing, Tom knows he’s living on borrowed time. It is in his best interests not to remember anything.
Because once he does . . .
But then everything gets so much odder. Tom begins remembering what has to be someone else’s life. Or is it?

BURNING BULB COMICS
THE TAILSMAN was a short story written by GARY LEE VINCENT that originally appeared in the Bizarro-western anthology WESTWARD HOES. Adapted for comic by horror/bizarro writer RICH BOTTLES JR. (author of Lumberjacked, Hellhole West Virginia, & The Manacled) and illustrated by STUART J. BROWN (creator of the Annyseed vampire comic), THE TAILSMAN follows the adventures of Sly Franko as he makes his way across the old west.
He’s hot on the trail, looking for some tail…
Sly Franko was a man of the West, a forger of the wild frontier. Like the Country Western song that would be written years after he died, the words, “Faster horses, younger women, and more money,” seemed to be the anthem of this horn dog cowboy.
Franko would ride into town on a blazing saddle, find the closest saloon to wet the whistle, belly up to a good card game, and find him a hot-loving hussy to get his cowpoke on with.He would never stay in any one town too long, always mindful not to wear out his welcome and also mindful to glance over his shoulder from time to time just in case his ‘lady of the night’ from the night before happened to be married. The last thing Sly Franko needed was an angry husband hot on the trail of “The Tailsman.”
Yes, Franko quickly earned the nickname of The Tailsman and it would be an accurate statement to say he always seemed to find some tail on the trail wherever he would roam.
In Episode No. 1, Franko finds himself in the rolling hills of western Iowa where a visit to bathroom leads to terror and death. Can Sly and his buddies save the town and still get back to the Parlor of Pleasure in time for a game of cards and some gentlemanly fun? For mature readers only.

From Legendary Horror Writer John Russo comes a harrowing tale where no one is safe!
Dealey Plaza is one of the most notorious places in America, and when youthful conspiracy buffs go there in 1964 to stage their own reenactment of the Kennedy Assassination, four of them are brutally murdered — the first victims of a hate-filled legacy that continues for four more decades.
The survivors of that long-ago Dallas trip, each of them now icons of the American way of life, are about to be honored — or killed.
Who will live and who will die? Will it be country-western star Lori McCoy? Her loving husband? Her scheming ex-husband? Or the case-hardened FBI agent and longtime friend who risks his life trying to protect them?
This is JOHN RUSSO at his best!
Watch the trailer:
From the Prologue:
Dealey Plaza is one of the most notorious places in America, and in the spring of 1964 I went there with some college pals, conspiracy buffs, who wanted me to help them film their own version of the Kennedy Assassination.
On the way home, four of them were murdered and their footage went up in flames.
It was the first link in a chain of violent death that spanned four decades and caused me to abandon all my youthful hopes and dreams.
As the years went by, some of us who had survived that trip became rich, some became famous or notorious, and some of us were entangled in tricky or dangerous situations that life had thrown our way.
Now we were gathered together for Homecoming Weekend 2000 at Belmont University.
But a killer was waiting for us.
And he was nursing a deadly grudge that had its roots in the trip to Dallas we had embarked on long ago when we were young, adventurous and innocent.
The wait is finally over… DARKENED SOULS – Book IV in DARKENED – THE WEST VIRGINIA VAMPIRE SERIES by Gary Lee Vincent is now available on amazon.com!
From Bizarro master storyteller Wol-vriey comes a truly weird western tale that will leave you awe-struck and on the edge of your seat…
In the town named Little Ass, tight-assed prostitute Rosa overhears a gunslinger’s plans to assassinate rancher Edison Bennett. Once the badass Bennett learns of the plot, he ensures there’ll be hell to pay for any attempt on his life!
Yes, it’s going to take all of gunslinger Jude’s shooting prowess, his eclectic collection of strange firearms, a trusty horse that requires an owners’ manual, and the help of the lovely and invigorating Nell (who’s EXTREMELY odd when the going gets weird), to survive the Bizarro hell that Edison Bennett unleashes in order to hold onto the land that he’d stolen from Madam Zizi.
Edison returned with his drink. He and Valhalla studied Jude’s gun.“It’s made of bone, Edison,” Valhalla said. “Smells like fish bone.”Edison raised a startled eyebrow. He finished his whiskey, then broke the weapon open to check its ammo.There were three shells in the cylinder, and no spent casings. Edison thought the three empty chambers odd. Even odder, the ends of the unfired shells looked like frayed meat.He shook the bullets out into his hand.Frowning, he held one up so Valhalla and Ike could see it. Lamplight glinted off the bullet’s fingernail. “What sort of a weapon fires severed human fingers?” he asked.
