Book Review – Blue Rare by Daniel Anderson


“Hey! You’re a music blog!” you say.

Well when our friend, Daniel Anderson of Glowbug writes a book about cannibalism, ya read it, and in our case, review it!

Blue Rare

I mean, the name says it all. For any of you who don’t know, the term Blue Rare, is a reference to the cooked state of meat. Its when you basically heat up raw meat to room temp, then eat it. The rare part is obvious but the blue part is what I am avoiding looking up. That’s a testament to how truly horrifically wonderful Blue Rare is.

Much like the term, Blue Rare, serves up plate after plate of raw scenes, not only of the cannibalistic characters, but also of, well, you know. Clearly, this book is full of violence, which from the start is frightening and unrelenting, at a truly unsettling pace. Its not a terribly long read, giving the reader little time to come up for air, which upon retrospect, might be the true magic behind the story. With a longer novel, such as Stieg Larsson’s Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, the violence and the horror are spaced by vast amount of “filler”. Blue Rare, contains no fillers or artificial flavors, just blood (literally), guts (literally), and someone (spoiler) eating a fucking eyeball. It’s simplicity, meticulous research, and razor sharp horror, when presented, is a hunk of meat from an unidentified source, pink and red in a pool of its own juice, unblemished by garnish or sauce. What you see (or don’t) is what you get. USDA Grade A Prime Horror.

We suggest pairing it with Glowbug’s Headhunters. Skip going out for dinner (you won’t have an appetite after this read) and pick up Blue Rare for $9.99 on Amazon, and Headhunters on bandcamp for FREE.
