His book "Sex Dungeon For Sale!" was picked up by Eraserhead Press, a publishing company that specializes in Bizarro Fiction. Sex Dungeon for Sale is Wensink’s contribution to the series. As is fairly typical with the Bizarro publishers, Sex Dungeon is a collection of short stories. Wensink’s stories were absurd, surreal, and funny. I like the Bizarro movement and appreciate the DIY/independent attitude of the publishers and authors.

The New Bizarro Author Series. By (author) Patrick Wensink. Sex Dungeon for Sale! Takes these bold characters and a few other outrageous situations to create an unforgettable and quick literary ride. While keeping an eye focused on the surreal, but both feet firmly planted in reality, these stories dissect a modern world so strange you have to laugh. Wensink's punchy style is perfect for the brevity-obsessed Twitter generation, but saves room in his utility belt of brief tales for humor, humanity and an extra helping of WTF?.

Patrick Wensink, you smell fantastic.

His book of shorts, Sex Dungeon For Sale!, is the latest release from Eraserhead's New Bizarro Author Series. Created to showcase the talents of unknown first-timers, the series is a sink or swim proving ground for aspiring Bizarros. Salinger notwithstanding, I have to wonder- have my presumptions done both Bizarro and Patrick Wensink a disservice? This being my first time, I was expecting awkwardness, pain and blood. Instead, Sex Dungeon tried to make sweet sweet love to me.

ID SAYS:
Wait, wait, wait. Let me get this straight: The book starts with a Realtor trying to sell a house with one screwed up basement, then it introduces a guy whose son is acting French. Okay following you so far.
Now it's killer dishwashers and positive reassurances for kidnappers, weird sperm donor children and American terrorists. What happened to the French kid?
Halfway through the book I'm thinking, "This is Bizarro, the author's going to tie this all together somehow. It's been a wild ride and now it's going to get wilder."
It gets wilder alright, but no less confusing. Next thing you know, people are seeing famous historical leaders and celebrities in burnt toast and coffee stains and a couple of pharmaceutical marketers are learning how the game is really played. Music executive mishaps, the auctioning off of James Brown's capes and their subsequent adventures and it all ends in a store at the mall selling the ultimate stress reliever...
WHAT THE HECK??? I don't understand. I thought I got Bizarro but I just don't understand. On top of all this, you never find out if that sex dungeon actually sells!

It's a book of short stories. Okay, I get it now. Haha! Lovely.

EGO SAYS:
I am truly amazed at how much depth and emotional punch has been packed into these characters. I only spent an average of 5 pages with each of them and still felt I got to know them on several levels.
Throughout the pages I found many different types I could connect with. The workaholic father too ingrained in his own world and neglecting his family until his son takes a sudden European turn. The always turning a negative into a positive army commander who holds on to Broadway song and dance ambitions. The play it safe type who lets loose to the extreme when he finds out he's dying. These people are me, I am them, and no matter how weird it gets, they are always attempting to adapt to their surrounding situations.

If I could see any one common denominator in all of these characters, it's that they are all romantics. Whether it be physical, mental,or spiritual, they all dream of more. More than what they have and more than what they can see around them.

SUPER-EGO SAYS:
I don't mean to be biased, but this is my favorite of the four NBAS books. I call it so for one and one simple reason alone: Satire. This is a book that satirizes modern day society and culture the likes of which I haven't seen since D. Harlan Wilson's Psuedo-City. While his stories never get irreal like Wilson, Patrick Wensink certainly has no reservations about choking the neck of society until he sees it crap some real truths.
I have to reiterate something already said by Ego, "turning a negative into a positive". This is the underlying theme to much of this book, and especially the stories that begin and end it. They are written in a sort of second person narration, with the entire text reading as dialogue being spoken to characters like they are you the reader. This creates a wholly separate kind of feeling that almost forces you to care more about what's going in the story. They both deal with hard sells, and the people doing the selling are trying exactly the same thing: to turn a negative into a positive.
Mr. Wensick does this with a very likable audaciousness. He sees the hypocrisies, exaggerations and extravagances of our lives and reveals the hidden desires in us all. No one is left untouched, himself included as he even throws in a bit of self-deprecation seen in the Forward and in his own author blurb for himself on the back of the book.

This is Bizarro done short, svelte and supremely sassy.

Patrick Wensink has got a story to tell you. He actually has several stories to tell you...and I advise you to pay attention. Sex Dungeon for Sale may sound shocking, but it's a great representation of how diverse bizarro can be, and why the genre is so appealing. Sure, we love the weird strangeness. But, when you can do bizarro, shedding some of the pulp and shock, you get a decent read, too. That's what bizarro is. It's a collective of unique ideas that are outside the realm. (Twilight Zone is bizarro on the family friendly scale, where as Perversions of Science was a little more mature)
Here's the deal. If you like humor, dark humor, and savvy wit, pick up a copy of this book. Reading it, several of the tales, particularly "Clean Bill of Health", reminded me of something O. Henry might scribe. Other stories - Wash, Rinse and Repeat and Jesus Toast - remind me of Palahniuk. I'm not saying Wensink mimicked their style...I'm just sayin', they're quality reads.
I'm not typically a fan of anthologies (kind of like I'm not a fan of anthropomorphism...it's nice to see me pleasantly surprised), but I really liked this one.
I blew Coke (not coke) out of my nose reading "Sex Dungeon for Sale"...and will never be able to think rumpus room without giggling like a middle schooler. I feel comfortable now that I've been schooled on kidnapping. And, I'm relieved that Rico Suave himself, the irreplaceable Gerardo, is here. My two personal favorites, though (and I have a dark sense of humor), are Clean Bill of Health and The Many Lives of James Brown's Capes. I'm happy to know how much "sex machine" fetched.
Sex Dungeon for Sale is a quality collection. Most are quick reads that you can grapple in one brief sitting. So, if nothing else, get a copy, keep it in the bathroom, and chuckle your ass off!

You can read this book two ways: You can have fun with the weirdness. Or you have fun with the weirdness and feel inspired by the truthfulness. I recommend the latter. Mr. Patrick does fantastic work melding entertainment and meaning---a near perfect balance of the two. At the surface, his stories are funny and kooky, but dig deeper and you'll find some real insight into the universal truths of being human, in all our profound weirdness.

It was late at night. My eyes were heavy. I was ready for sleep. But I couldn't stop reading. It's tired to say but, in this case, it couldn't be more true: I could not put this book down. It was too much fun and truth all wrapped up in one kooky package. Love it.

As with any collection, this has great stories and good stories, some that I preferred over others, but none that were bad. SEX DUNGEON is noticeably devoid of suckage, and in fact is rather awesome at times, especially the foreword. I really liked the foreword. Great imagination and my kind of humor.

Open Patrick Wensink's new book, Sex Dungeon For Sale!, and you're immediately confronted with the absurd, the hilarious and everything in between. How do you market a house with an adult romper room? Whatever happened to James Brown's capes? And honestly, what do you do when your son pretends that he's French? Wensink has it all covered - and more - in his first collection of short stories. Wensink's style is conversational, conspiratorial and engaging ... if you like Irvine Welsh, Chuck Klosterman or, dare I say, anything just a bit unusual and off the beaten path, Wensink's prose fits the bill. Wensink's prose creates characters that are just a little bit uncomfortable to be around, making you laugh at the same time you're looking over your shoulder, wondering if you really ought to be laughing at all. It's a slice of life offered through a cracked mirror. It's fresh, engaging and unusual. It'll be interesting to see what's next.

I was a little skeptical going in, but I love this book even more than I imagined I would. I just love the author's sense of humor and writing style.
