As with everything Mellick writes, this book is highly entertaining. I don't need to go too deeply into the story. It's bizarre, as is appropriate for a bizzarro writer like Carlton Mellick III. I've read several of his books and this one is much like the others. A delight from the first page to the last and a twisted journey along the way. Each of his books is fresh and new and yet all maintain that crazy weirdness that quantifies the genre. Mellick is a master of his art and this little book is as much a masterpiece as all his others. Read it and be prepared to have your mind bent.

I'll admit, Carlton Mellick III is probably my favorite bizarro author, so naturally I was looking forward to Sea of the Patchwork Cats.His books tend to be strange and funny, and I like strange and funny.

"Everyone in the world committed suicide at the same time." That's the opening line of this book, and as far as opening lines go, I'd have to say it's a good one. It sets the whole strange, dream-like, and faintly depressing tone for the novella.

The protagonist of the story is the only person in the world who didn't commit suicide--because he was too drunk to pull it off. The man tries to find a place for himself in the newly empty world, but one night the house he's staying in floats out to sea, and he eventually arrives at a strange building shaped like two giant, nude, conjoined women. Then he meets some very strange women (the snake woman on the cover image of the most recent edition is one of them). There are also a lot of cats and a monster.

This book was pretty cool. I'm really not much into cats, but that's OK because these cats are kind of creepy anyway. It's a very enjoyable read.

Conrad is an "old guy" in his sixties, who spends his days drinking, sleeping it off, waking up, and starting the drinking all over again. That's the extent of his life. After passing out one Tuesday at the local bar, this poor sod wakes up to find that everyone in the world has killed themselves, and he is the last man on earth. He takes residence in a random house, and once a monstrosity of a storm hits one night, he finds himself in the middle of the ocean. Along the way, he discovers that the house is sinking, there are woman frozen in huge blocks of ice, and things are randomly disappearing around him...then he comes upon Nerve Works, a large structure built to look like two conjoined female twins.

A snake woman who tries to swallow him, a falcon girl who is mysteriously being beaten, a dog girl who quickly becomes Conrad's pet...and lots and lots of cats. This story is one long (or short depending on how you look at it) crazy dream. Unique, interesting, perverse...all the good things a bizarro fan wants out of a good book.

There are a fair amount of typos, but that shouldn't keep anyone from reading this book. The dreamlike aspect of the storyline and the constant changing elements keep the reader thoroughly engaged. Recommended to all bizarro fans, those interested in dreams, or anyone interested in the absurd.

From the back cover:

"A must-read for Mellick enthusiasts who also adore the twilight zone. It is a story that has been passed down from generation to generation. The story of conjoined twin goddesses floating peacefully in the middle of the sea. Many who have seen them, usually on calm starlit nights, swear that they are the sirens of mythology, luring sailors to their doom. Others claim that the twins are not live women, but an ancient structure carved to resemble two females sitting back to back. A few believe they mark the gateway to the lost city of Atlantis, or a gateway to the spirit realm. But on all accounts there is one consistency: if you listen closely, at the right distance, you will hear them on the wraithy wind... dozens and dozens of meowing cats. Sea of the Patchwork Cats is a dream-like tale set in the quiet ashes of the human race."

This is the set-up for the story, but much of this is not covered in the text of the book, so you'll have to be familiar with the legend before you begin. This is a three act book... first everyone is gone except for one man, who watches tv and drinks until the electricity quits. Then the house he is in is floating on an ocean that brings him to a mysterious place...

I enjoyed this one a lot, perhaps one of my favorites by Mellick. The chapters are very brief, and this novella is barely over 100 pages, but it is a very entertaining story well worth the price. This is a very funny book with a unique narrator who is a 67 year old drunk. The characters he encounters along the way are vintage Mellick. You have to read the book to get the full effect.

I am definitely a fan of CM3. However, the sheer volume of his output ensures that there some of his work I enjoy more than others. Personally, I tend to enjoy the more over-the-top hardcore stuff like Apes*** or Kobold Dildo.

Sea of the Patchwork Cats definitely doesn't fall in to this category so I expected to read it quickly and move on. I was surprised that I really enjoyed it. It has the quality of a dream in that it takes several sharp turns in ways that are unexpected and illogical. While there are horrific moments, overall it is a beautiful story with a strong element of heartbreak. The only drawback was an ending that was a little unsatisfying to me; on the other hand, I have no idea how CM3 could have ended this surreal story any differently. Highly recommended.
