The Brides have chosen you to attend Count Drogado's endless bacchanal. You are broken, homeless, maimed. Why did they chose you? What power do they hold? Can you escape the Count, escape the Brides, escape the endless fate that follows, collecting coins from the dead one at a time? The madness of the Bong-Ripping Brides lies within.

"The Bong-Ripping Brides of Count Drogado redefines avant-garde literature, reading like electrified barbed wire hog-tying a pair of slit wrists. Indescribably talented, Dave K. writes as if he has his hands jammed in a toaster and his feet grounded in a puddle of blood." —Lavinia Ludlow, author of alt.punk and Single Stroke Seven

"What a gift to wander a while in these strange hallways of Dave K's imagination. Maybe, like me, you're not a big pot smoker—no sweat. You don't have to feel left out any more as these bong-ripping brides guide you from room to room through the lush, decorous scenes of this novel. Dave K is a nut. Crack him." —Adam Robinson, Publishing Genius Press

"You're on an adventure, a demented, ever-more-treacherous scramble, and there is this strange old woman on a wobbly bicycle, collecting coins and bones from dead bodies. You'll encounter other hidden secrets, unpredictable dangers, that wait ahead in this strange hallucinatory landscape. Dave K. is your guide though all of this, an author who is part literary door kicker, part ringmaster at a cursed circus. He's brilliant, and so will be your journey through The Bong-Ripping Brides of Count Drogado." —Bud Smith, author of Dust Bunny City

"Dave K's The Bong-Ripping Brides of Count Drogado is a breathtaking, beautiful and bewildering novel. The language is so fierce it slices and dices so nice, and it has a killer story that kept me glued to the page, gasping at the glory of the lines. This is an exciting new work from an exciting author, and one not to miss." —A.A. Balaskovits, author of Magic for Unlucky Girls

"Dave K does such horrible things to his twisted characters in The Bong-Ripping Brides of Count Dragado, at once horribly bleak and beautifully exuberant, that this debut novel is strange joy to read." —Michael Kimball, author of Big Ray
