    One thought on “Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy”

    1. Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy is a collection of flash fiction and prose poems by Bradley Sands.Life is full of oddities. For instance, I like hot tea but hate iced tea. I like cooked cauliflower but dislike raw cauliflower. And I hate short stories but it turns out that I enjoy flash fiction quite a bit.Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy, along with having one of my favorite titles of all time, was a great read. All of the stories are delightfully strange and the perfect length for what they are. A man shows [...]

    2. It is the first day of spring, the way when the men of the village make their blood sacrifices for the upcoming year. Blood sacrifices so they'll have good luck with the women of the village. Blood sacrifices so they'll have many opportunities to fuck lots of hot chicks.I had some other passages 'highlighted' in my Nook version of this book, but when an updated happened to the software it seems like my 'highlights' got lost. This one isn't so good, but it made me chuckle a little. You know what [...]

    3. When attending an orgy, it's not a bad idea to take a book along in case you get bored. This one would be a good choice, as it takes as long to read some of this flash fiction and poetry as it does for the average person to perform an average act of perversion. Ponder, along with Cormac McCarthy, just what would come out of a house that was being walked on a leash? Urine, feces, or wood shavings? (I'm bettin' on fiberglass insulation myself.)Cringe before the mighty chainsaw-wielding William Sha [...]

    4. My favorite story in this collection is “Invincible.” Beware, I am going to be spoiling the hell out of this story, so skip if you need to. This story is about a character called “the boy.” He is a stuttering child and is selling lemonade at a stand in his yard, making some money. Then come two neighborhood toughs: Billy and Jack come down the street in fine Italian suits. The boy does not like Billy and Jack. They are bullies. [] Jack removes a Tommy Gun from his pants, which contain an [...]

    5. This book is a basket of perfect gems of weirdness. It's like a fragrant weirdness bouquet, or a mouth-watering four quart bucket of fried weirdness pieces. I love it.In this book there is a story called A SUICIDAL AMPUTEE TRIES TO KILL HIMSELF BY ROLLING OFF HIS BED, DOWN THE STAIRS, THROUGH THE SCREEN DOOR, AND INTO TRAFFIC; SOME DOMINICAN KIDS POKE HIM WITH STICKS TOO, AND AN EAGLE SHITS ON HIM. That's what it's about, but I won't spoil the ending. It's beautiful. It's on page 24.In this book [...]

    6. I really enjoy Bradley Sands' work. He's definitely in my top 5 favorite Bizarro authors. He's like the bearded, author version of Dali. His writing is fabulously absurd and surreal. It's fantastic to picture the stories as one reads.I'm quite partial to variety. There were bits flash fiction, short stories, and poetry. I'm not a fan of poetry, but I rather liked the pieces in here. This was a very smart collection of stories. It goes the humorous route, instead of shocking.(Shoot! I forgot to m [...]

    7. Well, this was just absolutely magnificent.I wasn't sure exactly what kind of crazy to expect when I started to read this but found out very quickly. There are very few words to describe what this book of flash fiction is like. The only thing I can think of is to liken the feel of it to a movie such as The Science of Sleep but stranger and multiple subjects."Debunking the Bard" will probably be my favorite part of this for a while.

    8. This book is so great that it must be banned because I don’t think the world is ready for it. Ever see those old movies where the government imprisons writers? One of them would have to be Bradley Sands, chained to a wall being starved to death, rambling on about Bizarro fiction, and his wild and far-fetched escape plan. Meanwhile, the book would be so underground that the penalty for having one in your possession would sign your death warrant. You’d have to buy copies off a toothless street [...]

    9. Bradley Sands' collection of super short stories is unlike anything else you will read. These pieces are unusual and strange, but many are quite touching, and I found myself re-reading several of them. Highly recommend.

    10. You’ve probably wondered what it would feel like to get into someone else’s head, right?And if you ever had to get lost in another person’s thoughts, I’d wager that you’d never find your way out of those of Bradley Sands……because with every twist and turn, this author delves further into the bizarre.Having read Sands’ latest offering of all things mind-blowing and unsettling and perplexing and absolutely bizarro, I feel a bit disoriented(?). ‘Strange’ is a word that doesn’t [...]

    11. 3.5 stars.I like weird fiction that pushes the boundaries of weird. However, and this is simply a matter of personal aesthetics, I also tend to like weird fiction that pours on the bizarre heavily while still including at least vaguely discernible elements of traditional fiction writing--things like plotting, characterization, theme, denouements, etc. I find that, by virtue of juxtaposition and contrast, the presence of such traditional story elements usually enhances the bizarre content that th [...]

    12. This book got me through a very rough patch last year that included a break up, a car crash, family warfare and general anxiety about my own future. It did so with a very underused weapon: laughter.Bradley Sands is a master of hyperbole. He takes the exaggerated and inflates it even more until you can't help but suspend your disbelief.In this collection, you will find a trigger happy magician, geographical locations that go about daily routines like normal civilians, touching tributes to both Sa [...]

    13. This is not a mainstream book in any concept of the term. This is a collection of "bizarro" genre short stories that roll, stream of consciousness style, off the page as if William S Burroughs after a very bad David Lynch/Early Peter Jackson bender. It is rude, explicitly sexual and violent and indulges in some of the worst traps of post modern writing, and I had a blast every minute if it. Do I recommend this book? Absolutely not, unless you can watch Brazil and see it as a comedy that just did [...]

    14. My rating: 3.86 starsThis is a collection of flash fiction (and some other stuff, but mostly not) from the unbounded mind of Bradley Sands. Some standouts:Seth Schultz - in which Seth Schultz ruins an orgy by wearing a bear costume and ripping someone's throat out. Refrain - in which Sands goes to great length to explain how the story did not happen.The Attic - where dad's backup family lives.A Suicidal Amputee Tries to Kill Himself by Rolling Off His Bed, Down the Stairs, Through the Screen Doo [...]

    15. Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy is by far the best collection of short stories I have read. Sands clearly establishes the Bizarro genre for those not familiar with it, and must seem equally delight for those who know it. This book is the second book that has made me laugh out loud on a regular basis, the other being Rico Slade Will Fucking Kill You, by Sands also. Even the poems are fantastic. Sands tiptoes the line between completely bizarre yet every story has an underlying theme that stops it from j [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this collection of surreal snippets, but SORRY I RUINED YOUR ORGY might fall under the "Advanced Studies" section in the bizarro genre. Casual readers or those dipping their toes into the bizarro waters may be off-put by Bradley Sands' Dali-esque snapshots of the absurd, at least at first, but with an open mind and a warped sense of humor most readers should find the book a strange but rewarding literary adventure. Most stories barely qualify as flash fiction--some running as sh [...]

    17. Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy is a collection of short fiction,prose poems,flash fiction,and poetry from Bradley Sands.I've read some of his longer works in the past which are good,but I definitely prefer his short work.Each story is a delicacy, easy to eat and even easier to digest.Be forewarned that Sands has no boundaries or limits. Be prepared to be pushed to the edge of hilarity and weirdness.

    18. Why are you reading this review? Based on the title alone you should have bought it already. If that's not enough for you I don't know what to say.How about this? Dinosaurs, game shows, Everybody Loves Raymond, amputees, break dancing, chainsaw massacres, genocide and video games.Oh my god, what more could you want? If that isn't enough to make you want to read this book then I just feel sorry for you.

    19. My first foray into bizarro fiction. Honestly, I bought it because the title made me think, "there must be an interesting story there". And there was, kind of. It had to do with a guy dressed as a bear.Book is totally random but I like that. I love that each chapter is something new. I also found myself highlighting random quotes that I enjoyed.Not sure what the author did to create this but I imagine it has to do with drugs. I say that in a nice way.

    20. I tried to like this book. It's different and i like different, but i didn't like this. The book is a bunch of short stories that make little or no sense deliberately. It's one long literary non sequitor. It's humorous for about 5 pages. After that, i'm ready for sentences that make sense and stories that have a plot. I got about half way through the book before i gave up.

    21. Flash fiction is a weird animal in literature. It can be so short that it doesn't allow meaning to enter into anything unless the author knows what they're doing. Still, in the right hands flash fiction can be a brilliant vehicle to get the point across quickly.Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy by Bradley Sands is a collection of flash fiction and prose poetry that engages in a lot of experimentation and pushes the boundaries with how far an author can play with the rules before the narrative, even a ver [...]

    22. This fella can write. He does a nice homage to some of the Alt Lit crowd. Tao Lin with an ape flavoured smoothy. And Sam Pink too. And he uses the stylistic devices of both Sam Pink and Tao Lin in these stories and some others. Brilliantly done.There is a lot of social satire here. Richard Brautigan comes to mind. And also some stellar surrealism in the form of an almost joke (the poetry of Zachary Schomburg comes to mind). I find the work political in the best sense. The most powerful kind. In [...]

    23. Contrary to the title, this isn’t an etiquette primer on how to make amends for a poor performance at a friend’s sexual soiree. It’s a collection of absurdist flash fiction that takes its name from a its introductory story in which a man shows up to an orgy wearing a bear costume and proceeds to behave badly. Most of these stories are under a page long and few are longer than three pages. The stories don’t make sense, and are not intended to. (If they do make sense, the author has failed [...]

    24. While not my first foray into the world of Bizarro literature, this was the first I'd read of Bradley Sands' work, and the first collection of short and flash fiction Bizarro I've read. My reading inclinations tend towards novels, the longer and more epic the better. I like to escape into a book, and if I can spend a week or more there, great. That being said, I am glad I strayed from my habits and gave this collection a go. I'm still not sure, and won't be until a reread, if the pieces in this [...]

    25. This book hold a very special place in the history of my reading life, it is the first book I have ever put down part way through never to read further on. It's rare that I read something I find bad. I've always, as a matter of personal policy, slogged my way through some pretty loathsome stories. SORRY I RUINED YOUR ORGY by Bradley Sands was just unreadable to me. I had to put it down about a quarter of the way through.Essentially, this is a collection of Bizarro Flash Fiction. The fiction is v [...]

    26. I had high hopes for short story hijinks in Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy by Bradley Sands, instead I got some guy’s verbal diarrhea/stream of consciousness dream/drug ramblings. This is like David Lynch’s stuff: Weird for the sake of being weird. “Want to Hear Something Creepy?” was a decent poem and “Bread and Body of Christ” had expressive critique embedded shallowly, but it should have ended two paragraphs earlier than it did. “In the Airport” has some brilliance but should have a [...]

    27. Reading this collection of short stories I found out that I’m not a very big fan of really short stories. I like a lot of flash fiction, but the short short fiction, or micro fiction or whatever just doesn’t do it for me. That doesn’t mean that I disliked this book, there are a lot of good stories in it. This just wasn’t my most favorite story collection I’ve read. I’m definitely not knocking the quality of the book. Bradley Sands is a fantastic writer and has crafted some really goo [...]

    28. Not a bad collection of flash fiction, some of these were really funny or simply brilliant, while others made me raise an eyebrow pointedly (not necessarily a bad thing). Cormac McCarthy and The Detective were probably my two favorite pieces, with The Sloth and The Newspaper Boy, Four Answers to For Questions, One of Those Poorly Written Stories That Are Impossible to Follow Because There Are Too Many Goddamn Characters and Electronic Gaming News also deserving of high praise. Admittedly, I woul [...]
