Short Stories, Poo-Tales, Misogyny, Genital Destruction and General Musings From the Most Original and Shameless New Author on the Internet

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - April 1, 2011) - In the most diverse collection of short stories since the critically acclaimed Holy Bible (Various Authors), Eric Malteca's Grossly Overwritten presents a cacophonous marriage of disgusting but hilarious accounts of real life and fictitious events. Using toilet humor to offset a blatant, in-your-face self-loathing, Malteca presents a group of short tales that will have you choking on your own laughter (disclaimer: Eric Malteca does not intend actual choking).

"Putting together Grossly Overwritten, Volume 1 was as much a part of my life as breathing or making a number two," said the reclusive Malteca.

Grossly Overwritten debuted on's best seller list at #11,582 with absolutely no marketing budget, and is expected to climb as high as the top 10,000 in the coming weeks. And despite the raging success of his first publication, Malteca insists he's staying grounded and sticking to his roots, even amidst the potential of international fame equivalent to the lore of dinosaurs. Incompetent bloggers have said that the author's unique style most closely resembles Dave Sedaris and Tucker Max.

"My basic thought is that you shouldn't pull any punches in order to fall within some sort of academic or litigious standards. Write whatever the hell you feel like writing and make it your own. I don't care if I abuse punctuation or potty-words; if it properly illustrates my thoughts and it entertains, then so be it. Hopefully you find such an approach entertaining. If so, you'll be delighted to have entered my world."

The 76-page Grossly Overwritten, Volume 1 was published by the Fastpencil publishing house and is on sale now at for 99 cents. The ISBN is 978-1-60-746413-6.

Already in the works is volume 2, with TBD amount of editions to follow. A free, unedited preview of Grossly Overwritten, Volume 1 is available at
