Nosophobia by Gerhard Jason Geick
The young, depraved, and suicidal head out to a Chinese street eatery for wings. Once the drugs start flowing, the meat hits the grill... and the shit takes an unexpected turn for the worse. "
Beware of the Local Cuisine
You know what Volpe ain't wrong, this was a trippy tale. The guy moves to China for a new job after getting caught by his wife. Ok, so you expect yeah nothing shocking there right? WRONG. He gets caught crapping on a chick in the bath, how did he meet this lady you ask? Oh well, now that is a weird backstory involving jizz and breast milk? are you intrigued yet? Because I sure as hell was! Gerhard has an amazing author voice for this story. Which helps with making the flow incredibly natural. If you aren't put off by super grossness, then you will be pulled into this short sharp read. Bringing the real-world timeline into an utter grossest, a cautionary tale for foodies. I cannot really judge as I have had chocolate crickets, but the visual cues and descriptions alone will have you queasy. Then you get an extra special treat at the end from Gerhard. A couple of appetizers so to speak that really pique your interest in what this author can do. Sharing a couple of 100-word stories from his collection 'In a Dark Place with Nothing.' Showcasing his creativity in just a 100 words, I think he did an amazing job at picking these particular ones because they make you want more. Oh, Gerhard, I will be keeping a close eye on you.
Google Translate is your friend.
Definitely a short, fun, gross read with a twist ending!
A fun little read
The Palahniuk vibe is strong in this, still Nosophobia remains an enjoyable moment.
Realistic and gross
A realistic and disgusting slice of life tale that answers one of the major mysteries of our times
Read the menu!!
A well told tale - I wasn't sure where things were going after the first chapter, but the subsequent ones were the meat of the story. I will think twice before eating wings again, and a clever twist makes for a story I can gladly give my recommendation to!
