"What madness is this hard-on!?"
- Media Whores

Media Whores soothes your hunger for Mad-Crazy-SciFi-Fetishist-Horror until the last page is turned. Written twitter style it kept my usually wandering mind in the story.

A rare pearl in a sea of amateurish, often poorly structured, stories.

Tweet me some cash so I can buy some sex insurance and mentally pop one of those char-browns in my mouth before the zombies chow down on my flesh. This story reads like a poetry slam entry at the annual Porn Convention in Vegas. Riotously entertaining for navies of semen and Genital Generals alike. I'll be quoting this story for weeks, and you should, too.

The images come at you blazing fast and the story flies along carrying the reader into its blend of Wicked City, Akira and Gibsonian cyberpunk. Then come the zombies....

The speed of the narrative shows its origins as a twitter novel and the short sentences fit the manic tempo and pace that the story generates.

New media for a new generation, the story works well.

Review by: Ryan Underhill on April 12, 2010 : star star star star
Zombies, post-apocalyptic Japan, and a dose of BDSM - Media Whores a fast, fun story that keeps you on your toes. Imagine a cross between Roger Corman and William Gibson, and you've got the general ballpark that Made in DNA plays in.

What I really liked about Media Whores, though, was the format - the story was originally serialized on microblogging site Twitter, which means it's comprised of super-short 140 character paragraphs that turn into these little nuggets of beat poetry when strung together. New media's all about telling stories in new ways, and Media Whores is a great experiment in that.

Made in DNA’s style is bold and tongue-in-cheek. Originally delivered in a series of potent, Made for Twitter one-liners, Media Whores is a completely refreshing and impressive read.

While Media Whores is most definitely not appropriate for kids, kittens or cowards, I’d definitely recommend it to the mature reader who’s on the lookout for something Not Pedestrian and quite entertaining to feed the brain. I for one, am looking forward to reading more unique fiction from the amazing mind that is Made in DNA.
