Book Description

1 Nov 2001
God hates you. All of you. He closed the gates of Heaven and
wants you to rot on Earth forever. Not only that, he is repossesing your
souls and feeding them to a large vagina-like machine called the Walm - an
interdimensional doorway that brings His New Children into the world. He
loves these new children, but He doesn't love you. They are more
interesting than you. They are beautiful, psychotic, magical, sex-crazed,
and deadly. They are turning your cities into apocalyptic chaos, and
there's nothing you can do about it ...


Featuring: a narrator who sees his body from a third-person perspective, a
man whose flesh is dead but his body parts are alive and running amok, an
overweight messiah, the personal life of the Grim Reaper, lots of classy
sex and violence, and a motley group of squatter punks that team up with
the devil to find their place in a world that doesn't want them anymore.

More About the Author

CARLTON MELLICK III is one of the leading authors in the bizarro fiction movement. His influences range from offbeat children's book authors such as Dr. Suess and Roald Dahl to Japanese cult directors such as Takashi Miike and Shinya Tsukamoto to trashy B-movies such as those from Troma and John Waters.

He lives in Portland, Oregon, where the breweries, bookstores, and strip clubs are the best in America.


"Easily the craziest, weirdest, strangest, funniest, most obscene writer in America." - GOTHIC MAGAZINE

"Carlton Mellick III has the craziest book titles... and the kinkiest fans!" - CHRISTOPHER MOORE, author of The Stupidest Angel

"Just as Pop had Andy Warhol and Dada Tristan Tzara, the Bizarro movement has its very own P. T. Barnum-type practitioner. He's the mutton-chopped author of such books as Electric Jesus Corpse and The Menstruating Mall, the illustrator, editor, and instructor of all things Bizarro, and his name is Carlton Mellick III." - DETAILS MAGAZINE

"Carlton Mellick III is one of bizarro fiction's most talented practitioners, a virtuoso of the surreal, science fictional tale." --Cory Doctorow


"Mellick's imagination is boundless, and his writing truly shows this. His characters, plot, and writing style are original, enjoyable, and inspiring." --Lionel Bigsby


"Mellick has definitely joined the ranks of the bizarre literary geniuses such as Burroughs, Philip K. Dick, and Vonnegut." --Charles Glover


"Easily the craziest, weirdest, strangest, funniest, most obscene writer in America." - GOTHIC MAGAZINE

About the Author

Carlton Mellick III is one of the leading authors in the new
BIZARRO genre uprising. In only a few short years, his surreal
counterculture novels have drawn an international cult following despite
the fact that they have been shunned by most libraries and corporate
bookstores. Though frequently compared to David Lynch, Kurt Vonnegut, and
even Lloyd Kaufman, Carlton Mellick III is unlike anyone you've experienced
before. He sings for the band "Popes That Are Porn Stars" in Portland, OR.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weird yes but so what? 30 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback
This started as an interesting read and ended a bitter disappointment.Basically it screams " how weird am I?". Answer:A little but you can't tell a decent story.Sorry to burst the bizarro bubble but a strong narrative and decent characterisation will always sort the men from the boys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you've ever wanted and more 23 Aug 2005
Format:Paperback
This book is for anyone who has an even remote interest in science fiction, fantasy, punk rock, religion, horror films, the apocalypse, the future, canned food, lint accumulation, or anything else at all. Carlton Mellick (rising cult author gaining praise as the best and most representative author of this generation) creates a world unlike any other in this novel full of dark humor, intriguing ideas, boundless creativity, and, of course, a fast food restaraunt run by the Prince of Lies himself. You may not have realized it, but you have wanted to read a book this good your entire life. And to top off the experience, Mellick always includes a personal introduction to his novels, which gives the reader a feeling for the man behind the magic, so to speak. If you would like to spend your time immersed in a book that not only expands your idea of what creative fiction can be, but is also thorougly enjoyable, then this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 2 Feb 2006
Format:Paperback
Before I begin, I'd like to preface this article by saying Satan Burger was the first Carlton Mellick book I ever read, and since then I have been hooked.
The world has changed. The people are no longer entertained by it, and neither is God. He has grown bored of the human race, and so he's created the Walm, a giant vagina-like portal, out of which come strange, alien creatures.
But there are a few people left who don't just stare at the wall and shrug, who care about life. Meet Leaf, a drug deranged loser who could be the other son of God, the unwanted screw-up, and his equally weird friends, as they team up with the devil in the hope of finding their place in a broken world.
You can only begin to understand the surreal world from Mellick's brilliantly twisted mind seen through Leafs Acid Ocean Eyes; Satan Burger has an ending that will leave you in blissful awe. This is one of those select few books that will leave you both satisfied and begging for more, and will undoubtedly stay with you for your entire life.
To call Carlton Mellick III a genius would be like calling a blue whale "pretty big".

3.0 out of 5 stars Where’s the beef, Beelzebub? 3 Mar 2014
By sft
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
SATAN BURGER is a surprisingly conventional slice of bizzarro fiction; a sort of adult fairytale that’s oddly childlike at times. It’s a mashup of surreal, SF, and horror that’s entertaining if not always convincing. It’s also quite funny at times. However, unlike the work of, say, Steve Aylett (which is fluidly and organically bizarre) it comes across as a little self-conscious at times. It also seems to run out of steam at the end, although it’s a somewhat redundant exercise criticising the structure of this type of work, as it’s clearly not meant to follow any normal rules. Good but not great.

Format:Paperback
With this book, it's easy to see why Carlton Mellick III is heralded as the "high priest" of the Bizarro genre, and aside from the two editions of the Bizarro Starter Kit, this is the perfect book for those wanting to get into the scene. By turns fast-paced, witty and outright strange, those put off by the front cover image should really look beyond it (as it happens, it has nothing to do with the content inside). As for those who are enticed by the front cover... this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars for the love of leaf 22 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
i read this book for the first time about four years ago, when i ws eighteen. since then i have bought it five times, and passed it on to deserving friends along the way. this book has enough ideas in it for a writers lifetime, instead Carlton Mellick III crams them all into this powerful surrealist journey.

Mellick's incredibly engaging, and idiosyncatic manner of story telling is instantly engaging, you'll be viciously chewing through chapters, not only to follow the plot, but to see what other surprises are waiting for you. otherworldly creatures and customs, the living dead, baboon slapping, punk rock and one of my favourite main characters of all time.

this book is like a beautiful psychadelic experience, uplifting and euthoric, you will be changed by this journey. a revelations for the twenty first century.
