Furries-you know, people in animal costumes. You may love them. You may hate them. But chances are, you have not considered eating them...until now! Not since the early days of Monty Python has dark satire so subversive reared its ugly head! From the Hellmouth of the Heartland, Nicole Cushing brings you How To Eat Fried Furries-your guide on how to raise furries as livestock and cook 'em up tender and tasty. The cast of characters is as motley and grotesque as one would imagine given such a premise. There's the misshapen, proto-furry cast of the '70s action-adventure show, Ferret Force Five. Extraterrestrial Squirrels. The Amish and the even more despicable Pseudo-Amish. Whether an avid Bizarro fan or a newcomer to this wave of weird fiction, you're bound to be satisfied once you take a bite out of How To Eat Fried Furries.

From the Inside Flap:

"I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard while simultaneously wincing. Don't say you weren't warned." - GARY A. BRAUNBECK, author of Far Dark Fields and A Cracked and Broken Path

"Nicole Cushing is one of my faves in the new wave of Bizarro authors. There's a focused intelligence and clarity at play throughout even the deepest patches of delirium--a genuine method to the unadulterated madness--that makes it so much more than merely weird." - JOHN SKIPP, author of The Bridge and Light at the End

From Publishers Weekly:

People who dress up as animals are the target of this uneven speculative satire, a soi-disant "flying circus" of semiconnected short works presented as part of Eraserhead's New Bizarro Author series. Readers who expect Monty Python–style wild-paced, sprawling, clever humor may be disappointed. While diving in with promising bite, the first half of the book eventually bogs down in a single, mostly uninterrupted story, a mock script for an imaginary TV show called "Ferret Force Five" in which extraterrestrial squirrels plot to invade Earth. Later stories like "A Citizen's History of the Pseudo-Amish Anschluss" don't wear out their welcome, but the weird humor will likely only appeal to a small niche audience--one that doesn't include furries.
