New from from Down & Out Books: WILDLIFE ON THE SERENGETI by Michael Bruce Blackwell

TAMPA, Fla. - June 14, 2021 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that WILDLIFE ON THE SERENGETI by Michael Bruce Blackwell has been published on June 14, 2021 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


If you can dream it, you can kill it.

Enter Mac Sexton: a rich, good-looking go-getter of a teenager from the Northeast with a preference for gender-flattening (It/It/Its) pronouns and blessed with a violent streak as wide as the Mississippi and Styx combined. Its primary goal in life? To become the Number One Serial Killer in America with a body count unsurpassed even by Ted Bundy and "Killer Clown" John Wayne Gacy.

Telling its Disney-esque life story with humor darker than a lump of anthracite and so grisly that Bret Ellis Easton's American Psycho (Mac's favorite book) reads as children's literature, Mac takes the reader on a triumphant odyssey that proves that nothing—not even a robustly dysfunctional family, creepy prep school teachers, a faux-Green Beret, a cult group of renegade Mormons in the deserts of Utah, a treacherous Tennessee farm couple with a galoot of a son in a rubber pig mask, or even admission into Vassar and Amherst—can get in the way of a teenage killer and its dreams. As Zig Ziglar once said, "If you can dream it, then you can achieve it." And Mac proves it, adding "slaughter it" as well.
