What others are saying about Porup's books:


"Absolutely insane. Very bitter, very real... Would love to see more stories like this."

"Don't go on this ride unless you're prepared to look into the abyss."

" Vulgar, obscene, repulsive, and just overall a very good story."

"What a great ride. Gritty and compelling!"


"Had me laughing so hard that my stomach still hurts!"

"Porup takes a swipe at the war on terror in a manner that is original and avoids the blatantly obvious. It would be too easy for any writer approaching the same subject to employ a semi-realist Orwellian tone, but this novel takes the humorous low-road."

"Porup seamlessly addresses indefinite detention...The overrun surveillance state...The neverending War on Terror...And a frightening and ubiquitous NSA surveillance state that "wiretaps" your toilet instead of your phones."

"The puns also abound, as do the guilty giggles in this often excrement-strewn sleuther. A dark comedy."


"I laughed til tears rolled down my cheeks!"

"This diet has saved me so much money, I can now afford a bouncy castle in every room!"

"Great satirical book."

"I think I will get my Angel wings soon."
