Slut Machine is an enticing first volume that is brave, honest and rich in eroticism, humor and growing up gay and southern in America. This book of poetry takes on a Frankensteinian quality in which ideas span from the influences of Allen Ginsberg and Madonna to eroticizing Mexican and Chinese fast food restaurants.
"Shane Allison's unprotected poetry will Japanese bukkake your mind with its forceful imagery and anal cream pie your soul with its deranged humor. There isn't another bard out there as raw, ribald, or randy." —Jarret Keene, author of Monster Fashion
"Shane Allison is often described as "the Black Antler"---a great name for a superhero but disservice to both Allison and Antler. Why? Because both super superfag poets have a voice that is honest-to-goddess unique. There is only one Antler. And only one Shane Allison." —Ian Philips, author of Satyriasis: Literotica 2
"Slut Machine is super-size sodas and cheeseburgers at the Dairy Queen, a denim crotch and an open zipper, jealous boyfriends and anonymous lovers, and dirty messages on your answering machine----like real life." —Greg Wharton, author of Johnny Was & Other Tall Tales
"The wide range of Shane Allison's poetic talents tend to defy brief description; each poem seems a complete universe into itself. Both his wordsmithing and sentiments are flawless, a complete construction, display, and deconstruction of the author's mind." —Jonathan Penton, unlikelystories.org
"Shane Allison’s writing blurs into impossibly quick stop motion as it takes the reader from a whisper to a scream, then back again quicker than light. Allison is the sort of writer we need today, with our world a welter of racial, economic, and social disaster. He has experienced every known emotion, and in the range of sexual expression he is one free range chicken. In short, this man Shane can sign his name right across my heart." —Kevin Killian, author of Impossible Princess and Shy
