Toxicity is Now Available

My debut novel, Toxicity, is finally available to purchase.

All pre-ordered copies have been signed and mailed off, so they should be arriving on your doorsteps any day now. But the time of pre-ordering is over, because this book has now been released and it is goddamn beautiful.

Just look at these things.


Oh my God, right?

So sexy, I know.

Right then. As I was saying, this baby is now available. It’s received a few reviews already from advance readers, and so far nothing too terrifying has been said. I hope some people love it, and I hope some people fucking hate it. Life isn’t fun when it’s full of nothing but praise. However, life isn’t fun when you’re constantly being shit on either. I am seeking an equal amount of hugging and shitting. Hug-shits, if you will.

Honestly, I’m pretty sleep deprived right now, so this blog post maybe might not make the most amount of sense. But the general gist here is, Toxicity has been released, and it’s ready to rock your faces off.

Here’s some stuff said about it already:

TOXICITY is about as over-the-top insane as anything you’ll read this year, but without ever sacrificing character or story. It’s a fast-paced, amusing, and wonderfully gross ride!”

—Jeff Strand, author of WOLF HUNT


“With TOXICITY Max Booth III has put together a rare story indeed. It’s quirky, surreal, laugh-out-loud funny, well peppered with unexpected moments, and above all, jaw-clenching intense. Highly recommended!”

—Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award winning author of BLACK & ORANGE


“Misfits, mayhem and Zooey Deschanel. Max Booth III’s foray into the underbelly of life is like being sucker-punched by Tarantino. He offers a world where Desperation is more than a state of despair, Jesus is a housefly determined to begin an apocalypse, and greed is a skewer that pierces the heart of the dammed.”

—Craig Wallwork, author of THE SOUND OF LONELINESS


TOXICITY seeps under your skin, infecting you with black comedy, shocking violence, and the stinking desperation of bad people rotting in the sun. And yet somehow, we still root for these dark souls—and that is the genius of Max Booth III.”

—Richard Thomas, author of STARING INTO THE ABYSS

“Quick-witted and outrageous, this book is truly not for everyone (i.e. those puritanical and/or sane). But if you get excited envisioning something that’s like ‘Pulp Fiction’ mixed with a dose of the supernatural and a wicked sense of humor, TOXICITY should top your reading list.”

—Eric J. Guignard, Bram Stoker Award nominated editor of AFTER DEATH…


TOXICITY is a gritty, raw, unvarnished descent toward the kind of redemption only a modern noir can offer. Where this ends, though, are some eerily timely places, with some rather rough characters you can’t help but become fascinated by. If the end of the world is coming, this is probably what’d it’d feel like.”

—John Palisano, author of NERVES
