    Kevin L. Donihe's The Traveling Dildo Salesman is a collection that
    definitely flirts with the boundaries of the Bizarro genre, but which is
    deliciously understated in its obscenity. Rather than confronting the
    reader with his ability to shock and disgust, Donihe seduces you into
    the surrealism of his tale. The horror here is very cerebral, a creepy
    sort of hallucinogenic trip on the wings of imagination. That's not to
    say he doesn't toss in a moment or two of graphic depravity, but the
    focus is definitely on the weirdness of the experience. The title
    story, The Traveling Dildo Salesman, is a very surreal tale of one man's
    journey through a kind of fetishistic purgatory. Ralph is a tragic hero
    straight out of Rod Serling's cruelest Twilight Zone episodes, lost in a
    perverse suburbia that would not be out of place in a Tim Burton film.
    Equally frustrating and inspiring, it's a story that refuses to play by
    the rules, and which ends on an oddly ambiguous note. Milky Agitation
    is the second-shortest tale of the collection, and one that's strange
    simply for the sake of being strange. It's remarkable how many oddities
    Donihe is able to drop in so few pages, and how perversely amusing a
    shattered glass of milk can be. Two-Way Santa is the collection's nod to
    the obscene, with a tired, hopeless, homeless drunk restored to the
    mantle of Santa Claus by the belief of a creepy serial killer. The
    ending is twisted and dark, and will forever change how you think of
    candy canes. In a return to the surreal, The Helen Mower offers us
    story that's reminiscent of Stephen King's Lawnmower Man (the gory short
    story, not the abysmal virtual reality movie), but with a sweet
    necrophiliac twist. Living Room Zombies is, by far, the funniest entry
    in the collection, introducing us to the hospitality of two stoners on
    the night of the zombie apocalypse. The final entry in the collection,
    Revenge Of The Living Masturbation Rag, is as brief tale of abuse and
    revenge that ends in a rather chilling suggestion of horror continued
    beyond the page. A nice sampling of what Donihe has to offer the
    Bizarro genre, this is a well-written collection of horror that could
    almost be called 'literary' were it not so deliberately perverse. Well
    worth the read.
