I say 'new' on this one, but 'recent' is probably the more appropriate term. 'Cannibal' was featured in the May 2013 issue of Playboy. In Chuck's words, this was the story intended to out-do 'Guts' in the ick factor (you'll see why). So read it on an empty stomach.
Don't normally do this, but shit, sometimes you are your fuckin' khakis, and this deal is too good to pass up. Fight Club on Blu-ray is currently only $3.99 on Amazon (at the time of this post). That's sort of nuts. So if you don't own the blu-ray yet, now's the time to get it.
Special Features include:
If you were lucky enough to be at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, you might have been present when Chuck dropped a bomb and announced he was working on a graphic novel sequel to Fight Club. The story broke all over the web and was picked up by everyone from Rolling Stone to USA Today to The Hollywood Reporter. Since then, it seems everyone wants to know as much as they can about this project and Chuck has been extremely open about his progress.
It's pretty common at this point to find Chuck selecting Playboy as the outlet for his newest short stories. They're really one of the only outlets with the balls to print what he's writing. And god bless them for it. What's not common is for Playboy to then make the story available online. So drop everything you're doing right now and go read Chuck's latest short story ZOMBIE:
Yep, first Playboy this month, now Hustler. Chuck gets around. Check out this amazing feature interview conducted by Kyle Downing (@dowling_kyle). Chuck discusses his 2014 novel Beautiful You, talks at length about the upcoming Fight Club graphic novel sequel, and even takes time out to juggle a giant dildo in an adult store (and there's a picture to prove it).
Here's a taste:
While Chuck already has his next two books lined up; Beautiful You in 2014 and Make Something Up, a book of short stories scheduled for 2015, a question he still gets asked regularly is, when the hell is he going to finally write the long anticipated sequel to Rant? See, some of you may not know this, but Rant was originally promised and conceived as a trilogy-- same as Damned. But whereas, two years later we have that sequel to Damned, six years later we still long for the further adventures of Buster Casey.
I guess it was high time we got a Buzzfeed article like this.
