Burn, “Ass Goblins of Auschwitz”, Burn

  It’s Monty Python meets Nazi exploitation in a surreal nightmare as can only be imagined by Bizarro author Cameron Pierce.

In a land where black snow falls in the shape of swastikas, there exists a nightmarish prison camp known as Auschwitz. It is run by a fascist, flatulent race of aliens called the Ass Goblins, who travel in apple-shaped spaceships to abduct children from the neighboring world of Kidland. Prisoners 999 and 1001 are conjoined twin brothers forced to endure the sadistic tortures of these ass-shaped monsters. To survive, they must eat kid skin and work all day constructing bicycles and sex dolls out of dead children.

While the Ass Goblins become drunk on cider made from fermented children, the twins plot their escape. But it won’t be easy. They must overcome toilet toads, cockrats, ass dolls, and the surgical experiments that are slowly mutating them into goblin-child hybrids.

Forget everything you know about Auschwitz…you’re about to be Shit Slaughtered.


The Good:

This review is from: Ass Goblins of Auschwitz (Paperback)

Cameron Pierce is as adept at building bold, new worlds in his fiction as he is at destroying them. He’s an incendiary enfant terrible whose books suggest both a wild sugar high and a deranged mushroom trip.

Like his first novel, “Shark Hunting in Paradise Garden,” “Ass Goblins of Auschwitz” has two acts. In the first, Pierce paints the picture of a bleak world where children are abducted by Naziesque Ass Goblins to build toys made of dead children and undergo unspeakably disgusting acts of sexual cruelty. In this expository act, Pierce’s writing is stronger than anyone else’s in the bizarro genre. A sentence as sublimely vile as “bloody frost cakes my butt” is enough to elicit a postmortem smirk from the likes of Lautreamont or Verlaine.

I won’t elaborate on details about the second half of the book other than saying it’s mostly devoted to an ultra-kinetic “showdown” between the protagonists and the Ass Goblins that is ten times more insane and involved than anything anyone else is writing. Forget mass market horror and its safe thrills, there’s nothing there with this sort of ravenous abandon. I didn’t think the outrageous “showdown” of “Shark Hunting” could have been topped, but I do believe it has. Get both books and judge for yourself.

The book bears the influence of transgressive literary artists such as Burroughs, De Sade and Bataille, but rather than being some turgid and experimental manifesto no one would want to read, it’s as delectably action-packed as a double-length comic book. Cameron Pierce has hit upon a perfect template for the short bizarro novel and I hope he sticks with it for at least a few more books.

The Bad:

Do you like asses? You will love this book. I like a nice apple bottom but I never thought I would do to a butt what I read in this book. It’s unsettling and gross and sometimes just plain nasty. But it builds a world worthy of the name Auschwitz. You will feel for the children and cheer on the heroes. Be smart and read the first chapter. You will immediately get a feel for the book.
But there is a lot of asses. I mean a lot. I’m no prude but, wow! Great story and great dark humor.

And The Ugly:

Wow. Wow, wow, wow. I should have known better, but I downloaded this when it showed up on my recommendations based on my reading and liking of “John Dies at the End” and “The Oblivion Society,” and saw it was likened to Monty Python style humor. I should have downloaded a sample, because it is quite obvious, within the first few pages, that this book was not for me.

It seemed like the author was trying too hard to throw in anything and everything just for the sake of shock value. You know what? We live in the age of the Internet, NOTHING is shocking anymore, and when you write a book that tries to be as over the top as this one does, all you come up with is a boring acid-trip of disgusting images for the sake of disgusting images. The fact that I downloaded a book called “Ass Goblins of Auschwitz” should be proof to the fact that I’ve got a pretty warped sense of humor, but I found nothing amusing about what little I was able to get through in this book.
