Phronk here. I’m incredibly happy to welcome a new author to Forest City Pulp. Cal Chayce brings in some literary punch with Victor of Circumstance, a funny and thrilling small-town adventure. Here’s my take on it:
Like all good satire, Victor of Circumstance is exaggerated, but rooted in reality. The many characters draw from stereotypes, but even minor characters have quirks and depth that bring into question the real-life assumptions that stereotypes rely on. Yet there are clear villains—Donny Gudsen in particular is a cartoonish boor who could nonetheless be found in today’s news headlines.
The story is cinematic in feel, reminiscent of great comedies like Groundhog Day and Vacation. When all of the characters played their part in the meticulously orchestrated finale, it made me want to stand up and cheer.
Victor of Circumstance is funny and touching. Anyone who gives it a chance is sure to have a good time.
Don’t just believe me.
“Brimming with well-observed critiques of modern life, Victor of Circumstance has some laugh-out-loud moments and satire reminiscent of John Kennedy Toole.”
—Mark A. Rayner, author of The Fridgularity

Forest City Pulp is ecstatic to present its first novella: Sex Boat by Leonard Delaney. A parody of amateur erotica, Sex Boat features plenty of terribly explicit shenanigans from an author who has probably never seen a naked woman. Observe:
When Winston left for a tropical vacation on a boat, he did not expect to be alone. Yet here he is, on a boat, holding the diamond ring he intended to propose to Brooke with, while she’s been held back by her job. Lame. But things start to perk up when a party girl with a dark side and a blue-eyed bombshell with an ocean obsession both express sexual feelings about him. Winston has some choices to make about how to spend his vacation. Meanwhile, a mysterious force from the depths of the ocean has other plans for the boat.
Erotic, exhilarating, sexual, exciting, and mysterious, Sex Boat is a caper that will wiggle its way inside of you and make you reluctant to remove it. Just wait until you see the alarming finale.
This book is intended for super mature audiences.
