Overview

A bizarro twist on island horror stories such as Dagon, Zombi 2, and Brian Keene's Castaways.

Four college seniors venture out into open waters for the tropical party weekend of a lifetime. Instead of a teenage sex fantasy, they find themselves in a nightmare of pirates, sharks, and sex-crazed monsters.

Oscar shouldn't have stolen his stepdad's boat, but he wanted to impress Colette, who he has been pining after since their freshman year. This vacation was the perfect time to let the romantic sparks fly. With his best friend Allen (and Colette's friend, Jane, the bitch) tagging along, Oscar saw no way this trip could possibly suck.

His hopes die when they are hijacked by pirates. Then their boat sinks and someone gets eaten by a shark. Finally, stranded on a tropical island with an endless supply of rum, Oscar believes their epic weekend can finally begin. But the island is populated by a savage race of beautiful women. When night falls, these women transform into grotesque monsters unlike anything ever seen in fiction.

Pulp horror with a heart, Gargoyle Girls of Spider Island is the most deranged island horror story ever told.

    Cameron Pierce's Gargoyle Girls of Spider Island is probably the

    Cameron Pierce's Gargoyle Girls of Spider Island is probably the most
    immediately accessible of the Bizarro books I've read to date, and also
    the easiest to enjoy. It's a very straightforward contemporary tale,
    told in a linear fashion, by a comfortably reliable third-person
    narrator. Actually, if you ignore the sexually mutilated corpse in the
    closet of the pirates' boat, the first half of the story is pretty
    standard horror fiction. With coeds on a stolen boat, depraved (if
    somewhat inept) pirates, sharks in the water, and a tropical paradise
    that you know must be too-good-to-be-true, it reminded me in many ways
    of Richard Laymon's Island. Of course, when it goes off the rails into
    the extreme darkness of the Bizarro world, it does so quickly and
    without reservation. It all begins to go wrong with a bout of drunken,
    illicit sex, preceded by some rather bloody foreplay, and followed by a
    trip to the beach to take a leak. There, a monstrous blob of writhing
    flesh, with as many tooth-filled sexual orifices as bugged-out eyes,
    rapes unfortunate Oscar in more ways than one, at both ends, and all at
    once. The moment she's done, however, she transforms into an Amazonian
    beauty who looks as though she just walked off the set of a glossy porno
    movie. From there, the story descends into a glorious mess of sexual
    slavery, inhuman depravity, and very human cruelty. You know it's not
    going to end well, but Pierce offers up some truly inspired scenes of
    punishment and revenge that are guaranteed to make your toes curl and
    your stomach churn. Rectal dynamite plays a significant role - not once,
    but twice! - and the sharks make a final cameo appearance before Pierce
    pushes the story completely over the edge, giving Oscar the kind of
    happy ending that only the most brutally perverse could ever appreciate.

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Note to self: Don’t get stranded on Spider Island. My fear of spiders has nothing to do with this. In fact, I’m not sure if there was even a spider mentioned. There were, on the other hand, plenty of naked Island women, insane violence, and creatures with more vaginas than you can shake a stick at. Not that I recommend shaking a stick at those vaginas. My suggestion is that you should avoid them altogether. This book on the other hand should not be avoided, as it is a must read for the bizarro enthusiast. It’s hectic, it’s weird, and it’s a lot of fun from the first word to the last.
