Tentacle Head by Rick Claypool

  • Tentacle Head by Rick Claypool

A genre-defying journey through grief, madness and slime.

"Like The Little Prince reimagined by David Cronenberg, Tentacle Head is a weird and wild beast. It's full of goo and gore, but beneath the ooze beats a great big human heart." - Lincoln Michel, author of The Body Scout

"Equal parts grotesque and poignant, TENTACLE HEAD is a twisted story of family and friendship in a fungus-strewn nightmare world." - Erica L. Satifka, author of How to Get to Apocalypse and Other Disasters

'A child’s imagination can be far more cruel and gloom-ridden than most would like to admit. In his nightmarish children’s book for adults, Claypool spins juvenile phantasmagoria into a parable with no moral; a striking and wholly unique tale of apocalypse and survivor’s guilt." - B.R. Yeager, author of Negative Space
