Exercise Bike by Carlton Mellick III
Expected publication: January 1st 2017 by Eraserhead Press
There is something wrong with Tori Manetti's new exercise bike. It is made from flesh and bone. It eats and breathes and poops. It was once a billionaire named Darren Oscarson who underwent years of cosmetic surgery to be transformed into a human exercise bike so that he could live out his deepest sexual fantasy. Now Tori is forced to ride him, use him as a normal piece of exercise equipment, no matter how grotesque his appearance.
Set in a health food dystopia, "Exerice Bike" is an absurd horror tale of domination and submission, power and obedience, desire and desperation, from Wonderland Book Award winner Carlton Mellick III.
Keeping with the Halloween horror theme, Mellick is the granddaddy of bizarro horror, and I love how twisted this one is. Should be a fun, mind-melting, read.
