His work is what William Burroughs’s imagination would look like if turned into Japanese anime.
“Pierce is one of the weirdest, most imaginative writers around.” – Lloyd Kaufman, director of The Toxic Avenger and Poultrygeist
“Dr. Seuss meets David Cronenberg.” – Carlton Mellick III
“Before he goes gently into that weird night by spontaneously combusting, Pierce seems hellbent on writing his fill of Bizarro lit. His tales include many standard tropes, like pickles and pancakes falling in love, or ass-shaped goblins who abduct children for slave labor and eating, or flying Biblical sharks. It’s a scene.” – Cracked.com
“A fascinating mix of William Burroughs, David Cronenberg, and Lenny Bruce if you were to take all three and drop them into a blender.” – Keith J. Crocker, director of Blitzkrieg: Escape From Stalag 69
“In an era when very little remains shocking, Pierce might have actually managed to create a genuinely disturbing work of fiction, the literary equivalent of Schindler’s List rewritten by the Marquis De Sade and filmed as a Tim Burton animated feature.” – The Gaurdian, on Ass Goblins of Auschwitz
“Weird, wicked, wonderful.” – NY Times bestselling author Piers Anthony on The Pickled Apocalypse of Pancake Island
“I am slightly afraid of it. It looks kind of contagious.” – Warren Ellis, on Ass Goblins of Auschwitz
