10 Very Bizarre Books

Welcome newsletter subscribers. I am fascinated by bizarre books, and have devoted numerous blog posts to the subject. The following highlights have been compiled especially for you.

Here are 10 books that I consider to be bizarre. I have added pithy comments/fictitious dialogue below each.

Would you trust the author to make you disappear when he can’t spell disappear?


Gadsby: A Lipogram Novel


This 50,000+ word lipogram novel claims not to use the letter e.

How many e’s can you spot on the front cover?

Owner: Yes Tiddles, approach the gun like that.

Dating for Under a Dollar: 301 Ideas

Dollar Dating

Go to McDonald’s with your date and order a grilled onion cheddar burger from the dollar menu, then pull out 99c and plead until they let you off the 1c. Now cut the burger in 2 and give her/him half, but with all the onions.

Date: ‘All the onions? That’s so kind. Are you sure?’

You: ‘Yes I’m sure. Now eat them before I change my mind.’


The Book of Marmalade


For those of us who spreading it on our toast is not enough.

Latawnya, the Naughty Horse, Learns to Say “No” to Drugs


This is how I imagine Latawnya the Naughty Horse learns how to say ‘No’ to drugs.

Someone walks into Latawnya’s stable holding some drugs.

Person: ‘Hi Latawnya you naughty horse, would you like some drugs?’

Latawnya: ‘Neighhhh.’

‘Let’s try that again shall we. Would you like some drugs?’


‘Would you like some drugs?’


Latawyna has learnt to say no to drugs. Have you?


Does GOD Ever Speak through CATS?

God Cats

Cat: ‘Meow! Meow! Purr, purr, meow, hiss! MEOW! MEOW!’

Person: ‘Are you sure God? We already have 10 Commandments, do we really need an 11th?’


Big & Little Crochets

What ludicrous garments.
