Carkan Moil is a novelist. His latest work is Boils: Tales of Tainted Mother's Milk, currently sporting a 4-star review on Amazon. Quite frankly the scariest looking website I've ever seen.

a reference to the metamorphosis. having read the description for the book at amazon, the connection is obvious. disregarding that, the site is really fucking funny. i'll read it, but with a cover like that i probably don't want to own it.

a massive array of stars on an Amazon review by a very few readers does not a great novel make. Has any major reviewer picked it up as yet, ie, NY Times , NY Rev of Books, etc?

Has any major reviewer picked it up as yet...? No.

the talking boil has aleady been done.

Indeed it has!
One fat morning Eric Hearble wake up with an abnorman fat growth on his head. 'Oh crumb,' said Eric Hearble, who was very very, surprised. Anyway he carried on as Norman for why should he worried? All of suddy he heard a small little voice calling him by name,'Eric...Eric Hearble' it seemed to say though I couldn't say for sure.
That night the very same voice spoke saying 'Eric, I am a growth on your very head, help me, Eric.' Soon Eric became very attached to his fat growth friend.
'Call me Scab,' the voice said and he was.
'Call me Eric,' Eric said naturly as he could. From then on you never saw Eric without the big fat scab growth on his head. And that's why Eric Hearble lost his job teaching spastics to dance.
'We're not having a cripple teaching our lads,' said Headmaster.

Hey! Would this be a good place to link my half written novel?
Thought not.

Wow. I managed to kill this thread stone dead! My novel obviously destroys everything it touches.
