    I'll be honest: with a title like that, I'd have probably bought this book regardless of author or plot summary. Fortunately, this collection comes from the wickedly brilliant mind of Robert Devereaux, whose penchant for literate, taboo-shattering fiction is well-represented in these nine tales.Whether it's the Biblical fable "Fructus in Eden," the B-movie parody "The Slobbering Tongue That Ate the Frightfully Huge Woman," or the pornographic tall tale "Showdown in Stinking Springs," Devereaux plunges head-first into scenes of shocking violence and even more shocking sex to explore the often unpleasant truths of the human condition (one story, "Li'l Miss Ultrasound," contains a fetish that went beyond the pale for even this hardened horror connoisseur; consider that a warning or a recommendation, whichever's appropriate). Devereaux's lush, distinctive voice elevates the material above a mere gross-out--there's a genuine spiritual quest here.Including such classics as the dementedly funny "Bucky Goes to Church" and "Ridi Bobo" (a noir-flavored tale of clown adultery), BABY'S FIRST BOOK OF SERIOUSLY FUCKED-UP SHIT not only lives up to its title, but offers up a succulent transgressive feast.

    I found Robert Deveraux's new short story collection "Baby's First Book of Seriously Fucked-Up Shit" by way of horror master Brian Keene's move to Deadite Press publishing. Deadite is making a big push into the horror niche market and Deveraux is deffinitly one of their spotlight writers. I purchased the book on title alone, how could you not?Deveraux's writing chops are deffinitly there. His mind is a dark and twisted place when left to run wild. Some of the places he explores in this ten story collection are truely bizzare. The plots are genius, yet most seem to end abruptly. That is where my contentions with the book lies. Nearly every story starts off brilliant and well developed. Practically every story could have been developed further into a more richer, fuller story. Yet the endings seem to just drop off suddenly and come to a quick end. This makes them seem somehow forced to conclusion. I felt there was more in the stories to be told.The good outweighs the bad though and I intend to read Deveraux again. Given this is a short story collection and my first jaunt with the writer I feel the chops are deffinitly there for me to further enjoy. He has a reasonable catalog of full scale novels. Check out Robert Deveraux and the rest of the twisted minds at Deadite Press!

    Varias historias bastante buenas, sin embargo el final de éstas siempre deja la sensación de que fueron forzados, de que el autor pudo haberse extendido páginas y páginas hasta darle un buen acabado, lástima que no fuera así. A ratos bajaba mi kindle miraba hacia el horizonte y me preguntaba "¿por qué sigo leyendo esta clase de libros? pero luego lo retomaba y explotaba de risa.

    Robert Devereaux approaches some very messed up concepts with the words of a poet.

    This book is hilarious.Sexy cowboys and cowgirls having apocalyptic-scale super sex. An orgy in the garden of Eden. A b-movie style short featuring a giant woman and a massive tongue ;). Beauty pageants for foetuses...Robert Devereaux is quite simply an awesome writer. I can't recommend this collection of short stories enough. I don't think there was a single one I didn't enjoy. From a cautionary tale featuring a father and son reborn into a single body, and still trying to maintain their relationships with the loves of their lives, through to a tale of true love featuring everybody's favourite fairy Tinkerbell, each has its own voice and charm.The stand-out story of the bunch, for me, was probably "Ridi Bobo", a noir tale of clown love gone wrong that really hits the mark. So poignant, and full of black humour. It made me feel things I didn't think possible... Such a mix of emotion....If you like your horror stories to be depraved and yet still make you laugh throughout then this is one for you. A wide variety of subject matters and execution, but all masterfully done, this book doesn't fail to live up to its exceptional title.If you haven't purchased this book already... what the hell are you waiting for?! It's seriously effin good is what it is! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it now!

    This is a collection of short stories that are are all weird, and, as the title suggests, seriously fucked up. Stories vary from: two epitomes of sexual appeal fucking a town to dust, an prebirth fetal beauty pageant, a giant woman-devouring tongue, and other equally messed up, but entertaining stories. There is no decency or subtlety in this book, and it's awfully fun to see just how far it goes. There's a deep depravity within these pages that you won't find anywhere else.Don't get me wrong, though, this isn't just a book of senseless shocks. These stories do have some interesting characters and plots. The stories are all really short, but you'll certainly like the characters for that length of time.As with all Bizarro books, disregard any beliefs and realities, and be ready to go to whatever far-reaching places this book will take you.

    Robert Devereaux is an author whose stories do not play by conventional norms. This book is a fine example of that. In this book you will find stories that range from 50's B-movie sci-fi to surreal psychological horror, to the just plain odd. The content in this book is quite graphic with scenes of sex and rampant violence throughout and may offend the most sensitive of readers. If you have a taste for the odd and nasty this book is for you. Happy Reading!

    This was a very strange book. It was a set of short stories tat were all a bit weird. The first one I enjoyed once I got used to how it was written, and the other one that stands out for me at least was the one with the fairy in it. I think the book is for older people, definitely not for younger readers, but if you like weird and strange you should give it a go.

    Devereaux's one of those author's you're either going to hate or love. This collection of short stories is a wonderful representation of his abilities as an author to repulse you while stringing together some of the most beautiful passages put to paper.
