It is the Bizarro Force—-a highly organized unit of the coolest, weirdest, most dedicated fans that the Earth has ever seen. We are mobilizing to bring bizarro to every nook, niche, and corner we can find. We want everyone talking about bizarro fiction, and we want our fans in a place where they can spread the word with ease, excitement, and support.

  • Read bizarro books that we send you for review (for free!)

  • Earn free books!

  • Get books that are Bizarro Brigade exclusives

  • Meet other fans—-online and off—-organize gatherings–invite your favorite local authors

  • Participate in online and offline bizarro activities like gatherings, reviewing, tagging parties, promotions, and marketing blitzes

  • Gather points by performing various tasks (like reviewing books on Amazon) for points which can be exchanged for bizarro books of your choice and gain rank (which gets you MORE points)

We want you to read our books and review them. We want you to tell your friends and co-workers about bizarro fiction. We want you to get together with each other, either online or off, and get to know one another—-talk about your favorite books. We want your time—-time you’d spend thinking about how awesome bizarro is, anyway. If you love bizarro fiction, then you’re already part of it. Joining the Brigade is a way to organize fans, and give you free bizarro for promoting the genre in every way you can. And we want to interact with you. We want to know who you are, what you want, and why you are a fan. We want YOU.

POINT SYSTEM

BRIGADE BIZARRO BOOKS CATALOG

POINTS?

Yes. It’s the best way to keep track of who’s doing what for bizarro, and what they deserve for their efforts.

Yes, points earn you the book of your choice from the Brigade Catalog—-a real, physical copy!

You can get points in many ways, from writing book reviews to dressing up like your favorite CM3 character and spending the day at the subway reading bizarro books aloud and playing the kazoo. Come up with a promo idea, get it approved, and EARN POINTS by doing it.

You’ll receive a points chart upon enlistment, and you’ll know what you can do with what you earn, from books to weird, one-of-a-kind bizarro items like inflatable unicorns, Slavic drug lord pinatas filled with little plastic heads, and special promotional items, zines, and artwork from bizarro authors that no one else is gonna ever have a chance to get their fanatical hands on.

It’s not like you’re not already a part of the army, this is just your chance to be recognized, receive compensation for a job well done, and to spread the word of bizarro so that bizarro may thrive.
