Jonathan Segal Chicken


Sure, you know about chicken soup, but do you know about a souped-up chicken? Jonathan Segal Chicken was just another piece of kosher poultry, but he decided he wanted something more. He wanted to fly, and fly he did, on adventures that take him out into the world... and beyond. This classic parody from the 1970s is now available again in this newly redesigned edition

The Origin of Sorrow coverTHE ODDFATHER

Mafia Mia!

You'll be swept along by this breathless story of the Provolone Family-its lust and lechery, its diabolical enemies, its heart-stopping gang wars and automobile chases-into a world where betrayal is the order of the day and kinky sex the order of the night.

You'll never forget the members of this illustrious family: Don Guido Provolone, the big cheese himself; Fungi the Fornicator, his eldest son; Carmine the Cretin, his middle son; Nicholas the Sensitive, youngest in the family; and an unbelievable assortment of relatives and hired hands.

Here is an intimate look into the innermost workings of a Mafia menagerie-men of wild appetites and primitive instincts.

Here is the Mafia that the bestselling Godfather legend only hinted at-madness in all its colorful blood and tomato sauce surreality.

If you don't die laughing (or at least chuckle and smile a lot) the two authors promise to help arrange your upcoming funeral.
