Space Raptor Butt Invasion

Space Raptor Butt Invasion


Chuck Tingle



This book is a bit of a doozy. While no one in their right mind would consider this book a flawless masterpiece, anyone could agree it is unconventional. The book outlines the erotic relationship between a human astronaut and a dinosaur astronaut describing how they have “totally-not-gay” sex. The most notable thing about this book is how it doesn’t live up to the wild expectations that the title conveys, though this might be done on purpose. Chuck Tingle is known to be quite the character, and it wouldn’t be unrealistic for someone like him to write something so outlandish simply for the sake of irony.

Note: This book is notable because it was nominated for a 2016 Hugo Award, a major honor for science fiction and fantasy. It is a typical “monsterotica” story in a large but mostly unknown and misunderstood romance genre. Also, this book belongs to the "Is it a romance?" section. It's up to the reader to decide!
