Black Cat Mojo By Adam Howe


Book Description:


In these three novellas of blackly comic crime and creature horror, you’ll go slumming with well-endowed dwarf porn stars, killer badgers, redneck mama’s boys, morbidly obese nymphomaniacs, dumbass dog-nappers, trailer trash Jesus freaks, diarrheic Jack Russell Terriers, not-so-wiseguys, mob-movie memorabilia collectors, junkie blackmailers, and giant man-eating Burmese pythons.

To pay back a gambling debt and avoid being castrated, washed-up dwarf porn star Rummy Rumsfeld (of Snow White spoof Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, It’s Up Your Ass We Go) must overcome a geriatric pederast, redneck pornographers, a morbidly obese nymphomaniac with serious personal hygiene issues, the ghost of his religious zealot mother, a dwarf-eating badger, and George Lucas.

Dumbass desperadoes Hootie and Poke incur the wrath of a trailer trash church group, not to mention God, when they kidnap a Jack Russell Terrier with the figure of Jesus Christ in its butt.

After testifying against notorious mob boss “Snake” Cobretti, embittered ex-wiseguy Frankie “The Tin Man” Piscopo emerges from Witness Protection to embark on a disastrous drug deal that leaves him fighting for his life against a giant Burmese python with a taste for Italian-American.


Washed up carny buys Ed Gein’s car hoping to reverse his bad luck. . .

“The bad luck kept coming. The tent would collapse in the middle of his spiel. The trunk-lid would jam, or the hidden speakers refused to play. No one could stomach the car’s slaughterhouse stink; kids cried, pregnant women’s waters broke, fat guys puked up their beer and corndogs. One time the car’s handbrake unlocked, and the Ford rolled back over some poor schmuck’s foot; funny thing, the car hadn’t even been parked on a grade.”

But the real horror was just getting revved up . . .

My Thought’s:

Black Cat Mojo is a book made up of short/novella stories.

You can’t help but be really intrigued as, as book descriptions goes this one sounds bonkers!

My favourite story had to be OF BADGERS & PORN DWARFS which is the one that I was most worried about reading. I really didn’t know whether I was going to like this book or not. It certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but I was actually surprised how much overall I enjoyed it.

OF BADGERS & PORN DWARFS the main character Rummy Rumsfeld I found I actually quite liked, or maybe it was more that I felt quite sorry for him. Having made it to the height of porn stardom, he suddenly finds himself broke and in debt and here on in he finds himself in one disaster after another. Some parts of the story were quite disturbing but strangely enough I found them quite humorous. I think anyone who has quite a dark and twisted sense of humour is going to love this book.

FRANK, THE SNAKE, & THE SNAKE is another story which was enjoyable and totally reminds me of why I hate snakes.

Expect to find some very weird scenarios and even stranger characters throughout this book. It isn’t going to be a book for everyone and certainly not advisable for any young readers but for anyone who likes to be more daring and try something totally out there I can highly recommend Black Cat Mojo.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.

Black Cat Mojo is available to purchase from Amazon.
