little odious vermin

One fine day on the eighth of May, space aliens from a faraway galaxy came to the Planet. Their mission was to conduct a census of every population of every plant and animal species on Earth. Thanks to their advanced census-taking technology it took just under a week for them to collect, collate and analyse all the data. To their horror, they found that since their previous visit, the planet’s bio-diversity index had fallen by 95%, and that a new species of hairless ape with a talent for toolmaking had arisen. The aliens identified a strong statistical correlation between those two findings.

The hairless apes pestered the aliens day and night, imploring them piteously for answers to such questions as:

“How can we solve world hunger?”

“Why are there fewer fish?”

“What happened to the bees?”

“Where have all the flowers gone?”

“Where can I get a decent tomato?”

“When will we ever learn?”

The relevant alien would turn toward the person asking the question. Each of zer seven eye-stalks in turn would vibrate in a manner suggesting bemusement. Then the alien would clench zer throat-wattles in a rather off-putting way, thereby enabling a bizarre semblance of human speech to emerge from zer central feeder-cavity. To most questions the aliens would reply, “Person of Earth, if you need more information, we suggest that you direct your enquiry to your XXXXXX…”

MASTRESS & OTHER TWISTED TAILS: The Barbarian horror-hordes are rampaging across the Land, ransacking the wimmen and pillaging their muffins. With the sacred Scroll of Cthulhu in their possession, the invincible horror-hordes have totally smashed the Imperial armies and are advancing on the Capital.

With no viable military forces left to confront the invaders, Monstrously fat-buttocked Imperior Holocaustic III must send a small band of infiltrators, the Outcast Mutant Outlaws (Omoze), on a covert mission under cover of stupidity to retrieve the Scroll from the Barbarians and return it to the Tomb of the Old Ones from whence it was took.

But this is a Land where the theft of the Scroll has allowed the forces of oddness to emerge in strength. This is a Land where the Barbarian invaders wear white linen nose-aprons to cover their lice-ridden moustaches, where the turds of a psychopathic priest hiss and slither like serpents, and a short-sleeved shirt means having both arms amputated above the elbow.

To succeed in their mission, the Omoze must outsmart the Barbarian Chieftain, Ulrig Hausmarten, who is protected at all times by his beloved Dogs of Death: Dicklicker, Shiteater, Leghumper and Arsesniffer.

In a world gone mad, the cast of crazies includes the Mastress, an ancient and troublesome Guru of indeterminate gender and hazardous loincloth; Clothilde of the Gift of the Tongue, a peasantess who talks with sparrows, nanny goats, pilchards and sphagnum moss; a blind, deaf-mute chicken-whisperer named Beaky Featherstone, and a host of other “strangelings, peculiaritisms and bizarritudes” in every town and village.

WARNING: Immature Content! Adults Maybe!. "Mastress" is a cacklingly bizarre read that may induce fatal hysteria. Recommended only for the strong of mind and stomach. Now at!
