Nuns Behaving Badly

This looks like a WUvian book to me!

Read an interview with the author here.

Thank You,  Patty!

I think most regular readers of WU would agree that our contributor Patty is at the heart and soul of this misguided enterprise. She makes terrific posts, and always manages to comment kindly and intelligently on what others do. This blog would not be the same without her.

I've been wanting to send her a little token of thanks, but could not come up with the perfect item--until I was out book-hunting today and came across a copy of the volume pictured to the side.

Patty--send me your snailmail address privately through the SUGGEST LINK mechanism, and this invaluable compendium of "boners" will go out to you in Monday's mail.

And thanks again for all your creativity!

In honor of Black Friday shopping later this week, we look ahead to the next holiday with a gift suggestion. Why not celebrate Christmas this year with tales of Krampus, Santa's evil assistant?

Return of Alex!

Regular WU-vies realize that the blog has been missing one-third of its voice for the past many months, as Alex Boese hunkered down to finish his new book. Well, over at Alex's Museum of Hoaxes blog, he's just announced his return to active blogging.

Let's hope that includes some time here at Weird Universe!

Love Hotels Book

Wouldn't your "significant other" get the hint when you presented this fine book as a gift?

The Girls of Murder City

I just read this book (pictured to the right, with link) which offers a rich and fascinating glimpse of a moment in Chicago when there were several female murderers simultaneously occupying the headlines and jails. This is always prime WU material in any era, and I don't believe you will be disappointed if you read this excitingly written historical account.

Why the video of an old song in this post? It's the tune that one of the murderesses played and danced to, over the corpse of her victim!

Three Recent Books for WU-vies

These three titles from 2009 all seem admirably desirable for our interests.

Where Are You Planning to Stick That Doll?


When most people go book-shopping, they search for best-sellers. However, this is my kind of material, purchased this weekend and shared here for your enjoyment.

Altergott + Hernandez = Greatness


While we wait for our banner-artist Rick Altergott to finish his concluding installment of RAISIN PIE, we will have to content ourselves with these great covers he did for two Gilbert Hernandez graphic novels. I just finished reading both of them, and they are of course superb.

The third one, due out at the end of this year, seems to lack the distinction of Altergott cover imagery, but will no doubt repay your attentions as well.
