The first installment of the Torture Trials series introduces a writer who was sentenced to hell by his own countrymen. He was then murdered to expedite his trip to hell, which took longer than expected and had biblical consequences. In an amazing feat of will, he returned from the prison of the damned, joined by a demon that helped him escape. Only by the grace of God is he able to battle demons as one himself without suffering the wrath of Satan. Throughout it all, the internal struggle he faces, deals with, and is burdened by as well as the turmoil tearing him apart spiritually but otherwise justifying his battle externally against the enemies he didn’t even know he had until after he was dead is cleverly disguised to be indistinguishable from the reality that unfolds before him in this pulp fictionesque delivery of the first volume in the series.
Layered with comedic and dramatic elements, this book is guaranteed to be a page turner for anyone who has battled demons and either won or lost.

About the Author
On A Zenless Ken Next to come out in the Torture Trials series/collection is the Buddhist perspective of the first installment with more details and greater insight into the mind where angels and demons battle inside for control of existence as the man continues his quest for peace, or peace and quiet, or just quiet if there won’t be any peace. Stay tuned as the dozen or so volumes slated to be released in this collection are continuslly updated and modified even after publication. A Zenless Ken offers the Buddhist aspect sans the inner peace and alchemy. We all have breaking points. What this book will contani is still being weighed against what it promsises to deliver. Coming out early 2019. On Am I God, Gobland? I spent over half a decade perfecting this piece of junk and frankly, I think it's got more holes than five baskets of peach halves divided among three people. Nothing in the story makes sense. I completely ignored the ending if I even bothered writing one, so I think it just dies off in the middle and you're left standing there alone holding the anti-hero's hand thinking 'dude, fucken let go already,' but no, then it just kind of drifts off and you're back where you started, at Chapter 1. I think that's because I wrote some of these chapters in the reverse order than they were printed in. Meaning, I wrote chapter 1, then I wrote another chapter 1, and then previous chapter 1 became chapter 2. Then I wrote chapter 1 again, and one became two, two became three, and on went the cycle until I wrote all chapters in total flip flop format so nothing barely makes any sense. Then, I think some girl got a hold of the manuscript, and she couldn't spell for shit, so I have no idea what the fuck she was saying, but in all honesty, I don't think she had anything good to say. So forget that shit, she ain't in the credits. I'll be damned! What else? Oh, the whole thing is basically this boring ass monologue by this guy that pretends like he's not whining the whole time, but if you read between the lines, you can see a tear drop crusted over on the top of some of the letters, so that just strains the eyes to no end. I don't know. Overall, it's just a sad remake of Queens Psychotic written like a decade ago, then taken off the market cause it wasn't good enough, so it's probably spoiled by now. I say buy it while it’s free, read the last sentence or two, tell the author it was total crap and you could do better, then make him cough up double the price in a petty attempt to make a dollar out of fifteen sents. (That's how many times you have to email him for a response by the way; what a dick.) Then grt bent when you remember you got it for free, so double that is still nothing. Anywho, the first review was pretty flattering, I won’t lie. Something about “redefining suffering... laughed and cried a dozen times”... etc. etc. I recently updated the book yet again and now there’s different versions depending on whether you buy it here, Barnes and Noble, or Apple, so take that for whatever it’s worth. I’ll continue updating the book periodically as I add the other books in this series/collection to my offerings. A Zenless Ken is the sequel to this book. This is the first of the series. - k On P!ublishing various genres Papoose Doorbelle Publishing is an organization interested in health, knowledge, and education. Books and documents published by Papoose Doorbelle Publishing, or P!apoose, can be of any genre, voice, tone, or length provided they do not promote misinformation or propaganda with the intent of distorting the public’s image of globally adverse events, such as mass oppression or cultural genocide. Having said that, science fiction and fantasy literature of a high entertainment value with respect to the publication’s impression on its audience is not necessarily bound to these limitations provided the literature in question is not in itself an act of or an actual crime against a specific person or group of persons already in defensive or defeated standing in current events such that the publication would add to or encourage reactions with unwelcomed impact on their freedoms and liberties. On the contrary, P!apoose is always and will always be willing and ready to promote and distribute content that devalues or questions the status quo with regard to the segregation, discrimination, retaliation, or elimination of any person or group forbidden or prevented from expressing their inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the freedoms inherent in our existence. P!apoose’s first publication, Punny Jokes 101, is a great example of a publication that entertains without being at the expense of any living persons except as to illicit a reaction of laughter that neither causes nor implies any contempt or insult to any living person, a rare and unique characterstic often missing from comedy by today’s standards. Comedy is not necessarily the focus of the publishing company’s mission, and likewise, is neither turned away should it be of content that is free of cheap or tasteless insults that merely piggyback off of the culturally-defined implications of humorous standards, however missing they might be from the origin, and rely on genuine brain-tickling playful spin offs and word craftsmanship to offer the audience fresh material sans the prejudicial undertones. Such non-offensive material with no political influence or implications is a welcome manuscript for P!apoose’s brand. On Punny Jokes 101 This is the first in a series of joke books I plan on putting together for fans of my phonetically harmonious double entendres served with a side of satiric silliness. That aside, we can only hope and assume the first book in the series will be the worst of them and they gradually get better, because the only real value I see in this book is learning how to form these phrases on your own. On P!apoose Publishing Authors searching for a publication company with principles based in freedom of expression and prevention of oppression are welcome to contact P!apoose should they have a manuscript ready for copyediting and finalization.

Readers interested in materials quoted by other authors are encouraged to seek out those publications originally written by others, as quotes of their works are not permitted nor will not be found in materials published by P!apoose. If P!apoose publishes it, then it’s original, unique, and most likely a rogue nonconformist of the existing standards on written forms at the time of publication and should be approached with extreme caution, as it may be armed and dangerous with knowledge and to the status quo, respectively.
