Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
"This is perhaps the weirdest book that anyone has ever written, or will ever write. Donihe is the best kept secret of the bizarro fiction genre." - Carlton Mellick III, author of Adolf in Wonderland There once was an odd reclusive little man who was in love with his house. He loved this house not in the way that normal people love their homes. His was a more intimate love, like the love between two humans. He loved his house so much that he asked it to marry him, and he believed that his house happily replied with a yes. Unfortunately, their love was to be torn apart the day before their wedding, on the day of the great house holocaust. On this day, every house in the world collapsed for no explainable reason. It was as if they killed themselves, and took many of their occupants with them. Distraught and despairing over the death of his fiancée, this man must go on a quest to find out what happened to his beloved home. On his quest: He will meet Tony, a self-declared superhero, who looks kind of like a black Man-At-Arms from the old He-Man cartoons and claims to protect the world from quasi-dimensional psychopomps with his powerful sexpounding abilities. He will meet Manhaus, who seems to be part man and part house. And, finally, he will venture to House Heaven, a world where houses live inside of bigger houses made of people.

Review:

"Absolutely essential for the Bizarro fan. An immense achievement." --THE MAGAZINE OF BIZARRO FICTION

"This is perhaps the weirdest book that anyone has ever written, or will ever write. Donihe is the best kept secret of the bizarro fiction genre." --CARLTON MELLICK III, author of Adolf in Wonderland

"It starts out as something that sounds like a joke, becomes an exploration of the human spirit and how it is dampened, and ends up being something rather sensitive and poignant." --ANDERSEN PRUNTY, author of Zerostrata

"Kevin L. Donihe is brilliant. One of the most creative, most original authors out there, Donihe is in my top five list of sure things. When I need a little surrealism, a little thought to my scare and tear, it's him I sprint to." --HORROR WEB

"Kevin Donihe? Yeah. That boy has problems." --NICK MAMATAS, author of Move Under Ground

"Who opened the gates and set free this slouching beast (on the proverbial march to Bethlehem, of course) called Kevin Donihe?" --MICHAEL HEMMINGSON, editor of What the Fuck
