Description from publisher's site:
Cullen Bunn entered the World Horror Convention’s Gross-Out Contest four times, and won first place with each. And here they are, collected for the first time in print, uncut and sure to get your bile rising.

But that’s not all…

The Midway County Testicle Festival is underway!

In Cullen’s vomit-inducing novella, Blue has reason to be superstitious of the event’s thirteenth year.

The morning kicks off with a dead body in the field, and the issues escalate from there.

As a new recipe for barbeque testicles is introduced with horrifying results, Blue realizes that there is more afoot than mere food poisoning. With an ancient evil rising from the nearby woods and chaos all around him, will he have the balls to save not only the festival, but the entire world?

* Not recommended for anyone under 18 years of age, or the easily offended.

My two-bits:
In-a-word: testicle terrors

Ewww! LOL! Ewwww! LOL! Ewww. Ewww. Ewwwwww!

I wasn't so sure if I would like this book. It's not a book I would normally pick up. But is was sent courtesy of Skullvines Press for the contest I won at their site last year.

I thought I might get too grossed out and not be able to read it. I did get grossed out, but I zipped through this book despite the unmentionable parts and had a rollicking good time.

The gross out stories were soooo gross I can see how they won top prizes. I used to think sea monkeys were so cute and magical. Cullen has made them sick sick creatures to me now! LOL!

And loved the zombie touch in the novella.

Zombie sighting:
More like voodoo-like zombies appear in the novella.
