    1. Top ten reasons why you should read this book:10. It has the coolest cover art I’ve seen all year! Reminds me of that scene in Gravity’s Rainbow with the octopus, you know the scene, right? Ok, wrong crowd.9. The filler stories aren’t very long. Wait a second, what am I saying? There are no filler stories! Every story in this book is amazing! You will love them all!8. It answers all of the BIG QUESTIONS! From evolution to heaven to the propagation of the species, this book has it all!7. Th [...]

    2. An eclectic mix of weird/bizarre fiction, guaranteed to tickle from your toenails to your temporal lobe, from your meninges to your metatarsals. Elements of horror, sci-fi, and noir serve to imbue this anthology with more crossover appeal than might be expected from most bizarro collections. THE BALLAD OF BILLY THE SQUID by Eirik GumenyThere simply aren't that many jobs available to boys with octopus heads in today's economy. The world's top porn star finds his true calling in this twisted tale [...]

    3. I'm wondering what the hell I was thinking when I decided to read this. Well, actually that's partially a lie. I saw the word COCK and it drew me in. It's like my Kryptonite. The title teased me with the possibility of tiny cock, big cock, leaning to the side cock, pointing to the sky cock; and so I one clicked that bastard. I have no one to blame but myself for the disappointment that followed.What, you want me to stop saying cock and tell you about the stories you say. Okay, whatever. (COCK)Th [...]

    4. Full disclosure here: I have a short story in this anthology and every short story I write is pretty much THE GREATEST SHORT STORY EVER WRITTEN so right there, you have one VERY GOOD reason to spend all of your money on this book. And, in keeping with the spirit of full disclosure, this one time, when I was 19, I was at Barnes & Noble and I farted and accidentally pooped in my pants. It was horrible. I ditched my underwear in the trash can in the bathroom and went right to the self-help sect [...]

    5. Miriam posted this totally random photo, the artist is apparently a high school student. I sure hope you guys are not influencing our impressionable yutes with your brain bile. [image error]______________This review will be rated NC-17. I posted this as a comment on Danger Slater's review and figured I'd add it here since it is a review, after all.Having recently completed this fine piece of pseudo (albeit tame) pornography, I agree that naming a BEST is hard. All of the stories have a climax. C [...]

    6. Bizarro. What is it? Where is it? When is it and whycuz it? Who did what now and to whom? And most importantly, where is my bean sprout sandwich? Did I eat it? Will it return to haunt me in the near future?I will attempt to answer none of these questions in this review. In fact, this review is currently out of orderuhdflkjasfkjsSome stuff about this book. It has 15 short stories in it. They are quick to read! Speedy! Fast is an important quality in the book realm. No one likes a book that overst [...]

    7. Not satisfied with its first offering of the weird and irreverent, TALL TALES WITH SHORT COCKS returns with a sloppy, slimy vengeance. Bizarro Press’ second anthology assembles 15 oddball tales chock-full of strange humor, off-the-wall imagery, and singularly bizarre concepts.Like many multi-author collections (especially in the bizarro genre), the results are mixed, but TTaSC2’s hit-to-miss ratio is commendably solid. Highlights include Eirik Gumeny’s “The Ballad of Billy the Squid” ( [...]

    8. This is chock full of the seriously bizarre! There are a lot of hits and a few misses -- the truly great are five star stories, but there are a couple that aren't as good. I think each reader would probably put different stories in each of those categories -- a lot of these stories will strike a different note with different people.There were a few real stand outs for me:Douglas Hackle's peculiar and haunting "I Think I'm In Love (Or The Stranger In The Stall) -- initially I wasn't sure if I lik [...]

    9. Overall I give this work four out of five. I recommend it if you enjoy books like "John Dies at the End," and the works of Douglas Adams. Its a great collection of short stories, and if you're new to the bizzaro genre its a good place to start. I like to give short stories, especially ones with multiple authors, a more in depth review. Also, the book covers a range of bizzaro, from "out there," to "laser tits," the latter being more descriptive than illusory, so its kind of nice to know what to [...]

    10. This volume is even stronger and more bizarre then it's predecessor. You'll be disappointed if you're looking for rooster or chicken stories. It contains none! THE BALLAD OF BILLY THE SQUID Eirick GumanyA tale of a boy with an entire cephelopod for a head. He has an abusive upbringing, goes from washing cars to shooting porn to becoming a hit-man. Great story to start off with. I really liked it.I THINK I'M IN LOVE (OR, THE STRANGER IN THE STALL) Douglas HackleA man's "love affair" with an unkno [...]

    11. Tall Tales with Short Cocks Vol. 2 is the second book out of I believe three volumes in the series. From what I gather from the third volume and this one there is no real theme to the short stories other than bizarro elements. That being said, TTwSC II seemed have a better flow of stories. A lot of the stories felt like they had a fable feel to theme or like a story that sounds more like legend or myth. I really enjoyed most of authors in this book but more so than others:JOHN MCNEE'S A HAND WAL [...]

    12. When I first saw the cover to this book I saw a girl standing in front of a circle with a squid on her face. Then I read the first story, and I saw a Japanese girl with a load on her face. (You’re just going to have to trust me on this.)Anyways, it’s hard to review a 15 story anthology and do it any justice, so I’m just going to pick 5 stories and do those proper. Seeing as how I already kind of reviewed “THE BALLAD OF BILLY THE SQUID” we’ll count that as the first one.A HAND WALKS I [...]

    13. Like most short story collections in the Bizarro genre, Tall Tales with Short Cocks Vol. 2 is uneven, but always original. There are tales that are bizarrely told, which are generally my least favourite, and those that are more traditionally told, but about bizarre things, which is where I find the appeal.The 'hits' for me in this collection included:The Ballad of Billy the Squid by Eirik Gumeny merges two individually bizarre ideas - a boy with a squid for a head & the fetish oddity of tent [...]

    14. Another collection of bizarro tales to warp your fragile mind. Let's take a look at the book’s innards.The Ballad of Billy the Squid - The first line sets the scene: "Scott Plammer had an octopus for a head." Since we're dealing in bizarro, you know that that line means exactly what it says. What does a man with an octopus for a head do with his life? You guessed it: move to Japan and star in tentacle porn videos. And deal his special brand of vengeance upon evil-doers.I Think I'm in Love (Or, [...]

    15. I’m beginning to get quite pissed off as this is the second volume of Tall Tales with Short Cocks and there are no fucking short cocks AT ALL!! I feel cheated and manipulated. Stop screwing with my emotions. Okay, now I’m beginning to feel a tad better…This collection of Bizarro short stories is a giant leap better than the first volume. There is so much to love here. Anthologies like this are an excellent way to introduce new-to-you authors while still being able to enjoy the authors whic [...]

    16. This is an anthology. I always have trouble with anthologies. I rarely read every story. But I did this time around, which, I guess, is a good sign. I liked some stories more than others, of course. Some were rather good; one was really hard to get through; most were fairly entertaining reads. Some readers might have a problem with the content: scatological, experimental, absurdist, hyper-violent, sexually perverse, and intentionally offensive and juvenile. I’m not one to be bothered by such t [...]

    17. What I love about this collection is that it's everything you expect bzarro fiction to be. it's eclectic, bizarre, but fun as hell to read. For those that are new to genre it's not a good place to start because it will only confuse you. anthologies like these aren't going to explain what Bizarro fiction is. The second collection of Tall Tales is an insane mixture but highly readable and further proof that bizarro isn't a fad it's a living breathing organism of absurdity and shock value that you [...]

    18. Of volumes 1,2, and 4 this was my favorite (I have yet to read #3). There were so many great ones included in this anthology, I don't know where to begin. I will not go into the usual list of the ones I liked most. However, I will say that this is the most profound, thought-provoking, weird and stimulating collection for me yet. I have a feeling I will be reading it a second time around pretty soon.

    19. I have a short story in this anthology. To All of the other authors in this book. I think we made a kickass book. And like Danger Slater said "Long Live The Cock" Here are my ratings for all the stories. Mine gets 5 Stars because I am a bias prick.The Ballad of Billy The Squid porno star, to many man rods for me. 3 STARSDouglas Hackle's Bathroom stall love story (kinda) is another reason why I don't use public restrooms. 4 STARSA Hand walks into a Bar title sounds like the start of a joke. If bo [...]

    20. I'm loving this series of books more each volume I check out. I've run out for the moment, so there is no more until whenever the fourth volume comes out. Even after three volumes, I'm not seeing anything repetitive. Each story is a creature all it's own, yet the series has a cohesive feel. There is just something free and vital about this kind of writing, and this volume (as well as the whole series) makes excellent use of that. I'm not sure I could pick a favorite, or even a favorite volume in [...]

    21. Worth the price. There were few stories I didn't make very far into, which might have turned out to been fine tales had I not such a short attention span, but overall, a very good read. The highlights for me were: I think I'm love by Douglas Hackle, the Apple of my iPhone by Danger Slater, and Cycle of Life by James Steele.

    22. Vol 2 is certainly stronger on the whole than Vol 1, and also a better introduction for a new reader to bizarro. Some stories would fit well in a non-bizarro anthology, and a few were weird but seemed a little pointless. There were stories with some less than human sexual experiences to make us rethink our bland fetishes, stories warning us of our dependence on iPhones and illegal digital downloads, and the most disturbing story I've ever read: Douglas Hackle's I THINK I'M IN LOVE (OR, THE STRAN [...]

    23. Well, that was really dumb. An anthology where every story basically devolves into a poorly written sex scenes with animals, aliens, or the like. The ideas and setup were interesting but the writing is just bad.

    24. When I first saw the cover to this book I saw a girl standing in front of a circle with a squid on her face. Then I read the first story, and I saw a Japanese girl with a load on her face. (You’re just going to have to trust me on this.)Anyways, it’s hard to review a 15 story anthology and do it any justice, so I’m just going to pick 5 stories and do those proper. Seeing as how I already kind of reviewed “THE BALLAD OF BILLY THE SQUID” we’ll count that as the first one.A HAND WALKS I [...]

    25. I have to confess that I forgot to take notes while reading this and then waited nearly four months to write this review so my apologies for the lack of depth.The Ballad of Billy the Squid was a good choice for the first story, opening with tentacle porn is always a winner. Fun story that made me laugh, I really liked Scott's character.I think I'm in Love (Or, The Stranger in the Stall) was definitely an odd but interesting read. A Hand Walks Into a Bar was a great story set in The Grudge, I wan [...]
