Burn, ‘Fistful of Feet’, Burn!

  

Product Description

A bizarro tribute to Spaghetti westerns, HP Lovecraft, and foot fetish enthusiasts. Screwhorse, Nevada is legendary for its violent and unusual pleasures, but when a mysterious gunslinger drags a wooden donkey into the desert town, the stage is set for a bloodbath unlike anything the west has ever seen. His name is Calamaro, and he’s from New Jersey. Featuring Cthulhu-worshipping Indians, a woman with four feet, a Giallo-esque serial killer, a crazed gunman who is obsessed with sucking on candy, Syphilis-ridden mutants, ass juice, burping pistols, sexually transmitted tattoos, and a house devoted to the freakiest fetishes, Jordan Krall’s Fistful of Feet is the weirdest western ever written.

 
From the Author
This is my tribute to the Spaghetti Western and the giallo genres. It is quite weird so if you tend to scratch your head at strange literature….You’ve been warned. –This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
 
Now usually we post a sampling of the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY. However, Jordan Krall has 39 reviews on Amazon and they are are varying degrees of great. Read the book myself and it is one of my favorites. So, that being said, here’s what’s being said about ‘Fistful of Feet’:
 
Fistful of Awesome!,July 6, 2011
This review is from: Fistful of Feet (Paperback)
This is my first Jordan Krall book and it will not be my last! Others have written about the plot so I won’t get into that.
I do want to say something about the fantastic group of characters some of which I quickly grew to care for and dare I say that Calamaro reminds me of another character in a little series of books known as “The Dark Tower“.
Jordan does an excellent job of bringing the wild west to life and throws in tons of the bizzare.
I could not put this book down and when I reached the final page I was left wanting more. I look forward to many more adventures by Mr. Krall.

This review is from: Fistful of Feet (Paperback)

When Calamaro drags a wooden horse into Screwhorse, a tiny little town in Nevada with a “trouble don’t bother men none” attitude a bizarro spaghetti western unfolds full of gunman who love candy, ass juice, sexually transmitted tattoos, burping pistols, extra feet on woman, disease ridden mutants and so much more. At 210 pages, theres not a ounce of filler here, krall delivers so much bizarro on every page and once you start reading Fistful of Feet it’s hard to stop, the writing and descriptions are so on point you just lose yourself in this story.

 
Cowboys, Indians and…starfish?,February 11, 2010

This review is from: Fistful of Feet (Paperback)

If you’re anything like me, you might think that the classic western story has been in need of a makeover for quite some time now. And, again, if you’re anything like me, you love stuff that’s a tad…off. Weird. Bizarre. BizarrO.

Enter Jordan Krall and his highly entertaining Fistful of Feet. Funny, fast-paced, kind of gross and surprisingly touching in places, I liked this novel more than Krall’s previous efforts. He gets better with each book and this one struck me as being more linear, more focused. If you’ve never read Krall, this would be an excellent introduction to his work. If you’re already a fan and you haven’t picked this one up, do so immediately. Personally, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel.

Wooden Donkey Dragging fun!,June 17, 2011

This review is from: Fistful of Feet (Paperback)

I love westerns. As a kid up until now, I have held a unique fascination(sp?) with all things relating to this genre usually held sacred only by the elderly. Eastwood, Leone, Van Cleef, and so on have been personal heroes of mine since middle school. I have seen every cheezy seventies western ever made, and have made it my personal goal to read every book L’Amour ever wrote, or thought about writing (i can do that, I have what they call “Cowboy-Kenesis”).
However, I have always felt one thing has always been lacking in this incredible, horse-filled fantasia: Sexual Fetishism.
While L’Amour may have a character or two cast a sidelong glance at his horse here and there, the remainder of the sexuality of the genre has always been limited to the occasional, somewhat confusing prostitute rape scene. Or an informal indian orgy.
No more. Jordan Krall, sensing this lack, has written the ultimate in fetish-riddled (instead of “bullet-riddled”…get it?), face burping, donkey-masked, shoe sniffing western novels, and the world will forever be in his debt because of it.

Thank you, Mr. Krall.

Cowboy thanks.
