    One thought on “Mother Puncher”

    1. Mother Puncher tells the story of Ed Means, a former boxer who has become a Mother Puncher. That is, the government wants people to stop having kids, so if you go ahead and reproduce, a Mother Puncher comes and punches you in the face. Ideally, the mother and father are supposed to take a shot to the eye, but generally it’s just the mothers who get hit as their menfolk make themselves scarce immediately after the birth. Ed doesn’t like this, but there’s not much he can do about it. He just [...]

    2. Book Review: Mother puncher: Yep you read that title right.One of my favorite writers, ahhh heck I ain’t gonna lie one of my favorite human beings is Gina Ranalli. A Seattle based vegan feminist Bizarro horror writer is a new rising star in the horror fiction market place. That didn’t happen over night Gina’s work is often too strange to find home with traditional publishers so she was one of the early flag bearers of the growing Bizarro fiction movement. Most of Gina’s work can be found [...]

    3. Compared to some of the other books I've read from this publisher, (one of the handful of publishers driving the "bizarro" label), this is actually pretty cohesive. Unlike many of the authors in this genre, Gina Rinalli doesn't waste time and effort trying to prove her "bizarro" credentials, instead the focus is fully on the story. A dystopian novella, set in an American society where overpopulation has left motherhood all but illegal, and brand new mothers earn themselves a government sponsored [...]

    4. This was my very first Gina Ranalli I ever read and I enjoyed it.This novella takes place in a world that is over-populated and to discourage people from breeding the government sends in Mother Puncher's like Ed Means, to punch the mothers and sometimes the fathers, once the baby has been born. It is also regulated by the government that the Mother Puncher has to wait around until the bruises show and then take their very first family picture for the "breeding files." Kind of like the X-Files on [...]

    5. Ed is a retired boxer who, in a near future, works as the Mother Puncher in a local hospital. Meaning: He's in charge of punching new mommies in the face, as a message: "Don't do this again. We can't have any more babies".This book is strangely emotional. At least for me it was. Ed is a conflicted character, full of flaws, who begins to doubt the morality of what he's doing.The writing is great, not overly complicated. It's a fun book to read, a wonderful story, and with a great ending.

    6. It took me a while to get to this one, but the wait was worth it. So wonderfuld lots of social commentary as well. I love Gina's work, and this is no exception. Check it out for yourselves!

    7. You could probably read this as an analogy about abortion if you wanted to. Or just embrace the weird and roll with it.

    8. I think this is my first foray into 'bizarro' fiction. While the premise of government sanctioned workers whose job it is to punch new mothers (and fathers, if they are around) as a form of population control is bizarre, the little slice of life Gina Ranalli created in Mother Puncher seemed rather workaday. So even if you don't like weirdness, you might still like this novella. Don't get me wrong though, it is still weird. Just not as weird as you may think. I'm always amazed how authors can dev [...]

    9. Excellent book! This book is kind of a "day in the life" of Ed, a retired boxer now working as a Mother Puncher (MP) – a job created as the government’s unique way to try to control the population. His task is to punch the mother (and the father too if he’s around) after the baby is delivered and get a picture to show his boss. Ed is one of the nicer MPs because he punches only once, asks them where they would prefer to be hit, and tries not to hurt the people he knows. He also tries to pr [...]

    10. "Mother Puncher" starts with a very basic idea. When a woman has a baby, someone comes into the room and punches her in the face for her stupidity. Now this is in the near future, when there is a shortage of natural resources, and having a baby is really quite impractical. The best part about this book is Gina Ranalli's ability to create such a deep character as Ed Means, ex-boxing champ, current Mother Puncher. The reason is that there is no glory for Ed in punching women, that this is a job, a [...]

    11. This is a tiny book (100 pages) by the same author as Suicide Girls in the Afterlife, and in the same way, you have a very short time to get to know and like the characters, but you quickly do.Mother Puncher is about a man named Ed Means. Due to overpopulation of the earth, humans breeding is highly frowned upon, but naturally people do it anyway, so the system set in place is for every birth, there is a man whose job it is to come and punch the parents in the face as a deterrent from breeding a [...]

    12. This is a book that will definitely make you thinkGina Ranalli has a great talent for creating engaging characters, putting them in strange and absurd circumstances, and then pushing their experiences right to an edge. Certainly thinking about having mothers get a single punch in the hospital after giving birth can sound shockingbut taken in context with government control and overpopulation, this book leads you to consider all sides of it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a heavy book--the characte [...]

    13. Ed Means is an official government Mother Puncher. His job is to punch mothers (and fathers if they have the stones to stick around) of newly-born babies. This is to deter the new parents from further procreation and stem over-population. The premise and plot are both intriguing and exciting, but I do wish that the author had explained this fictional reality a bit more. Over-population and starvation are mentioned, but not much evidence of it is present in the story. Perhaps the need for Mother [...]

    14. I really enjoyed the beginning of the book, it was a fascinating concept and was dark and humorous with delightfully sinister undertones. The concept fell apart for me just over half way through massive holes not so much in the plot but in the "reality" of the situation as a whole. This is probably common in bizarro fiction, but as this is my first foray into the genre, I kind of wished for something more satisfying. The ending was weak and vague, and very abrupt too, which added to the lack of [...]

    15. Ed is a retired boxer who, in a near future, works as the Mother Puncher in a local hospital. Meaning: He's in charge of punching new mommies in the face, as a message: "Don't do this again. We can't have any more babies".This book is strangely emotional. At least for me it was. Ed is a conflicted character, full of flaws, who begins to doubt the morality of what he's doing.The writing is great, not overly complicated. It's a fun book to read, a wonderful story, and with a great ending.

    16. I was expecting something more bizarre or something that could possibly not even happen in today's society. Instead I got something that could possibly happen today, tomorrow or the next day or the next day after that orcAnd that stupid ending! Jezum Crow! I have never read an ending worse than this book! Just when it was getting really good too!!

    17. I would have, most likely, rated this book 5 stars if it had been longer.I read the last sentence on page 99 (the book isn't 120 pages) and flipped the page. It was over. I actually said "Shit." out-loud. There's a lot packed into the 99 pages that are there, but it left me longing for a little more. The story is complete, but there are things I would have like to see more fully fleshed out.

    18. I picked this up mostly because of the title. It was a pretty good overall, gotta love a story about punching people in the face. It held my attention and I read it in one evening but it just seemed to lack something in the end.

    19. This is a colorful look into a distopic world of too many people. The lead is a man whose job is to punch women who have a baby. This is the law since the world is over crowded. It is his job, he does not enjoy it and there are repercussions. The story is not too bad and it is put together well.

    20. I've read a bunch of Gina's books, but this one surprised me a bit. More social commentary and a little darker than normal.

    21. Seems to be observation for its own sake. Nothing really stood out for me. The writing was fine. Ed's characterization was fine. All kind of meh.
