Cousin Calls Review
August 31, 2021
Anthology - Science Fiction
“You don’t know me… but we’re cousins.” These words brought Harold to a bar where, apparently, he is not the only one to hear these words. After agreeing to buy drinks for the fellow patrons, he quickly learns of the “curse” associated with a simple phone call.
An anthology of five science fiction stories, Zeb Haradon’s Cousin Calls is a trip, to say the least. Beginning with a very disturbing chili recipe, to a bathroom smeared with feces, and ending with a psychedelic visit, this book is not for the faint of heart. Add in the vulgar language combined with several lewd sexual acts and a 3 out of 5 stars is substantial.
Yet, one cannot help to praise Zeb. His out of the box thinking and wild imagination makes for a very interesting read. Taking real world experiences, Zeb twists the issues we all face and creates an otherworldly venture.
A mind-bending story filled with satire, obscenity, and ridicule Zeb Haradon’s Cousin Calls is extraordinary.
