Here’s the artwork for my upcoming book. It will contain three interconnected prequels and sequels to Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland. Each one will focus around a different small background character from Warrior Wolf Women: Apple, Hyena, and the Hamburglar. The book should be out in the spring.

Brian Keene votes “Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland” one of the best books of 2010

On his blog today, bestselling horror writer Brian Keene, mentions my book Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland as one of his top ten reads of 2010.

This is what he has to say:

…this is one of Mellick’s best — and most accessible — works to date. In a post-apocalyptic future where people live in a socialist mega-city run by the McDonald’s Corporation, those who disobey are cast out into the wastelands, where they fall prey to marauding gangs of female werewolves. And with that wacky Bizarro premise, Mellick begins a fascinating and humorous examination of sexual politics and awakenings, consumption mindset, capitalism, gender separation, and dehumanization. The best Bizarro fiction always does this — examines social, political, and religious issues through a very cracked and surreal lens, but Mellick remains the top practitioner, and very rightfully so. If you still don’t understand what the Bizarro genre is about, or want to try reading it and aren’t sure where to begin, Warrior Wolf Women of the Wasteland is a great starting point.
