Donald Trump: Zombie Hunter by Jon Davidson

Donald Trump: Zombie Hunter is a true rarity: a cross-genre book that manages to keep the best aspects of both genres. The debut release of Jon Davidson, Zombie Hunter is a short story (about nine pages) that satirizes modern American politics. In the story, The Donald has become president, vanquishing America’s foes with his might. […]

A Date on Campus: Jackie’s First Frat Party by Emily Roberts

NOTE: I originally meant to publish this review at Return of Kings a few months ago, but I shelved it due to lack of time. In the time between when I first started writing the article and now, A Date on Campus was removed from Amazon for unknown reasons. I hope the author puts it […]

A Second Round on the House by Blair Naso

Reviewing A Second Round on the House, the sophomore poetry collection by my former Return of Kings colleague Blair Naso, puts me in a tough spot. On the surface, this book seems like it’d be better than his previous effort, The Death of Ideology: it’s noticeably bereft of the meandering prose pieces that weighed down […]

The Six-Figure Erotica Author: How I Make Six Figures Self-Publishing Erotica by Jade K. Scott

This is the best book on making money online I’ve ever read… that wasn’t written by me. As I’ve written before, over a year ago, I had a brief career trolling the manosphere as “Virginia Robinson,” soi-disant submissive Christian housewife and budding erotica author. While I made a decent chunk of change off of “Virginia’s” […]

Black House Rocked by Paul Bingham and Emril Krestle

Black House Rocked is the literary equivalent of sleeping with a girl who has a huge, hairy mole just above her upper lip. She’s cute in every other way, she knows how to use her tongue, and you really shouldn’t be complaining, since she’s out of your league anyway. But Jesus Christ, that mole is […]

Whiskey and Ashes: An Inebriate’s Avowals, Maxims and Observations by Ace

Whiskey and Ashes is one of those rare books that provides value well beyond what its slim length suggests. A collection of quotes from Ace of 80-Proof Oinomancy, one of the manosphere’s best-kept secrets, Whiskey and Ashes is 300 pithy one-liners spread out over a thin 64 pages. The book is designed in such a […]

How to Start a Big Money T-Shirt Business for Less Than $10 by Robert Koch

Robert Koch is who I want to be when I grow up. It’s odd watching people you’ve known for years end up in completely unexpected places. A little over two years ago, when Koch launched his now must-read blog 30 Days to X, he was an ambitious, if overenthusiastic kid trying on dozens of different […]

Pantheon: Adventures in History, Biography and the Mind by Quintus Curtius

Reading Pantheon, the sophomore effort from my Return of Kings colleague Quintus Curtius, is like drinking a fine wine. My impulse whenever I get a glass of alcohol in my hand is to shotgun it, and Pantheon goes down as easy as a shot of Tito’s; Quintus’ calm, erudite-yet-digestible prose made thumbing through the book […]

Cracking OKCupid by Kyle from This is Trouble

Cracking OKCupid is part of a trend in ‘sphere writing that I wholeheartedly welcome: books that focus on a singular aspect or site as opposed to an entire topic. I’ve reviewed tons of self-help books on my blog, mainly because people send them to me for free and because I’m dedicated to reviewing every book […]

How to Date Beautiful Women: An Indian Man’s Guide by Bojangles

What the hell is wrong with Indians? There’s something about the subcontinent that screws up men and girls. I’ve written about the horrors of Indian girls before: their ugliness, psychosis and feminism makes them as desirable as a blow-up doll. But the men are a bundle of weirdness unto themselves. Roosh V Forum members are […]
