    High school student Kip has a vicious case of acne His body is engulfed in pulsing pustules  They make Kip feel kinda funny but not in a bad way  Touching them gives him surges of ecstasy  Unfortunately Kip's dermatological problems make him very unpopular with his classmates who taunt and bully him  But what if he could share the blissful blemish euphoria and become popular?  When Kip accidentally expels some gooey zit juice on the hottest girl in the school something amazing happens  The girl becomes intoxicated with Kip's ooze and suddenly The Toad as Kip has been dubbed is sought after by the student body Everyone wants a piece of him  After they become hooked on his addictive pus they cannot get close enough to him  Poor Kip  I had great empathy for him until he became a chemical fix for his army of addicts  Being desired all the time can change a shy person  Power breeds cruelty and cruelty breeds technicolor explosive body parts  Author Shane McKenzie is an addictive storyteller sans side effects so far  Pus Junkies will induce pathos the uest for vengeance disgust and possibly some projectile vomiting  I liked it a lot

    What starts out as a coming of age story about two cousins attending high school evolves into something else entirely bizarre The story revolves around Kip and his troubled cousin Zak two teenage boys going through teenage boy's problems The caveat is Kip has acne Some terrible acne The worst case of acne in the entire history of puberty If you are adverse to any of the following this book may be disturbing1 Extreme sexual situations2 Extreme violence3 Extreme political incorrectness4 PusIf you replace the word Pus with any addictive drug such as heroine LSD ecstasy or all three combined then you have some idea of the content of Kips pusThe book evolves into a kind of reverse Vampire novel Kips offerings become highly addictive to those of his classmates who sample his oozing's Then the book evolves again into a tale of extreme horrorThis book is not for the sueamish This book is uite gross and has uite outdone perhaps anything I've ever red by Mr Lee And like a car crash uite compelling One can not stop reading Be warned

    This is Shane McKenzie's bizarro debut but don't think for a second that he's sold out or gone soft While the idea and story seems bizarro this is Shane McKenzie and this book is a total gross out sex filled bizarro violent gore fest The book is about addiction and then revenge You have those that are addicted to Toad's pus and you also have Toad addicted to the feeling of being a God and then Toad unleashes hell True to form Shane McKenzie may have had every intention of writing a straight up bizarro novel but soon the novel hits splatterpunk territory and that is what makes McKenzie so good If you've never read one of his books you are in for one helluva ride This book is dark twisted and if you have a weak stomach you want to stay away from this book For fans of McKenzie and bizarro this one of those books you have to check out What happens when you mix bizarro and splatterpunk? You get Pus Junkies

    So I had been in the middle of reading another book when Shane McKenzie's Pus Junkies arrived and couldn't wait to pop it open So I set aside the other book which had been turning into a chore to read and got right into this I'm already a huge fan of Shane McKenzie have yet to be disappointed by anything he has written so far and once again he delivers This one is packed full of fun and moments of pure delightfully disgusting bits I think it has moved up to be one of my favorites of hisWhen I first started it the main character in it Kip is one of those sad and pitiful characters that are usually victims in stories He's a little bit Carrie a little bit Brian from The Breakfast Club and some of the guys from Revenge of the Nerds I went to school with a girl like him someone people called Crater Faced Carrie so I felt bad for the guy right away When I started to get introduced to the other characters his super cool cousin Zak the asshole jock Chuck and the hot but seriously messed up Jade I started connecting them to people I went to school with and it was easy The characters are very well thought out and you hate and like the right peopleThen the story takes a strange twist when Kip follows the advice of his cousin and joins in on Senior Skip Day I was on the subway on my way home from work and I laughed groaned and winced on utter disgust at what followed It was vile hilarious and one of the best things I have read in years I have been reading hardcore and Bizarro fiction for years and never has a story made me react uite the way this did Part of it is the normality that surrounds the absurd Instead of Shane just writing to shock and gross you out he writes plausible characters and dialogue then boom you're no longer in Kansas and all the Munchkins are drink body fluidsI also loved the nod to one of my favorite movies from the 80's Street Trash and how the influence of that movie paints a lovely picture at the end in Kip's houseIf you have never read Shane McKenzie before this is a great intro to his work Highly recommended

    I have said this before and I will say it again a big element of Bizarro is escape artistry The Bizarro author escapes good taste and escapes all the things they have stacked against them One of the things a Bizarro writer has stacked against them is the central absurd premise To make dying of cancer sad is a magic trick roughly as impressive as pull my finger or is that a uarter behind your ear? To make an eternity selling dildos tragic and loaded with pathos is in the realm of Copperfield Blackstone and Houdin No I did not misspell Houdini I mean Robert motherfing Houdin Shane McKenzie has tasked himself with making hallucinogenic acne beautiful and tragic and with merging American Pie and Porky's with a touch of cosmic horror He's set up a big trick And he pulls it off He pulls it off really well You might very well be repulsed It's a book called Pus Junkies That's the kind of thing that grosses people out But in this case it's also the kind of thing that makes you laugh and makes you think It's good It's really good

    This is possibly one of the grossest books you will ever read if that is you can make it to the surreal and violent conclusion without burning the book with flammable hand sanitizer and running to the shower with a two gallon tub of soap and a three gallon bottle of shampoo I read it in about two days The writing is precise and direct and the voice feels authentic even though the premise is nightmarish and disturbingly disgusting you see this kid Kip's numerous zits contain a pus substance that is a highly addictive drug And his blood? Well I won't spoil that surprisebut if you dig the imagery of Lovecraft at his most body horror ish you will love this Reading it feels like watching a b movie as many books of the bizarro genre; so while it is not exactly a literary masterpiece it is pulpy fast and fun So what's different about this bizarro stuff than your ordinary run of the mill police procedural drivel that you can pick up at your local drugstore? Originality This weird fever dream has never been written before
