Anyone who’s read my blog for a little while now and I should hope that’s all of you will be quite familiar with my love for a little genre called bizarro fiction. It’s weird and obscure and mostly comedy/satire/bizarre rolled into one wacky ball of fiction. It’s entertaining and I love my reads to entertain me.
For this weeks Sunday Short I’ve picked one that I kinda <3 in a major way and would love to have though for some reason am convinced I’ve either read it or own it. Not sure but it’s mighty familiar. Could just be that I’d like to live out the title.
So here it is Mother Puncher by Gina Ranalli currently as I write this $1.99 or free for prime. 120 pages of anti breeder fiction. Enjoy
The world has become tragically over-populated and while the government hasn’t completely outlawed procreation, it strongly opposes and discourages it in what it considers to be a perfectly humane way. Ed Means is a man who loves his country. He loves beer and Johnny Cash and his sparkling beloved Ford Trinidad SUV. He is a good American, a good consumer and a good husband in a troubled–and of course–childless marriage. A former boxing champion, known to most as simply Champ, he now works in a hospital, doing a job most people despise him for. He is, like many others of his ilk, employed by the United States government; fully licensed and registered and carrying the badge to prove it. He doesn’t relish his job but knows that it needs to be done and knows that he is the best one to do it. He is a Mother Puncher. A fair, firm and uncompromising Mother Puncher. Breeders beware.
