We are thrilled to launch the fourth book of The Fellow Travelers Series, PRICK QUEASY by Ronald Palmer!
“Russ Wade is Batman, Alice and Hannibal. His story begins in the frothy pink halo of a genre romp and moves forward by continually opening different registers, a surfeit of haunting, killing, fucking, existential riffing, thrilling frantic raving, profound suffering, and galactic ticking—and that is so gay! Prick Queasy must be the pinkest book in the world—is the novel itself a drastic throbbing prick? Ronald Palmer bursts through the traps of consciousness like an action hero in 300-D, and by that I mean he is a visionary.” -Robert Glück
“Ronald Palmer infuses the adrenaline of pulp fiction with the wit and terror of the best contemporary poetry in his scabrous, can’t put it down, murder adventure Prick Queasy. Possessed by the spirit of a very wet and vengeful Hart Crane, performance artist Russ Wade turns avenging angel, hellbent to get his own back on every man who’s swallowed the Kool-Aid the heterosexual dictatorship pushes down our throats every day. Maybe he’s maddest of all at his dad, or at the sailors who let Hart Crane drown after accepting his ravenous blowjobs. You watch him come apart, and a little bit of you falls to pieces with him, so it’s a dangerous trip and could drive a person crazy! One thing I can say, you’ll never look at another red-headed guy in quite the same way ever again. Prick Queasy unfolds the way life does, as one staggering surprise after another, often sexual, by turns lovely and hideous, the unexpected in action, in essence the superreal, the imaginary.” -Kevin Killian
