Larry Doyle, the author of I Love You, Beth Cooper, returns with Go, Mutants!, a hilariously outrageous novel of teenage angst and restlessness, populated with heroes and villains straight out of the classic sci-fi and teen movies of the '50s and '60s. Soon to be a major motion picture from Universal Studios, Larry Doyle's Go, Mutants! is the funniest, most original bit of genre-bending since Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. This story of alien high school rebels without a cause is sure to bring out the unabashed B-movie fan in everyone.

Incredibly inventive....A singularly original work that wears its inspired mutant heart on its sleeve and its advanced alien brain on its funny bone....GO, MUTANTS! illuminates both a past worth remembering and a future worth looking forward to. --Will Viharo, Retrospective Magazine"
Back cover copy
Earth has survived repeated alien invasions, attacks by hordes of mutants, and the ravages of ancient beasts brought back to life. Now we're in the blissful future . . . for most. J!m, the son of the alien who nearly destroyed the planet, is a brooding, megacephalic rebel with a big forehead and exceptionally oily skin. Along with Johnny, a radioactive biker ape, and Jelly, a gelatinous mass passing as a fat kid, J!m navigates a particularly unpleasant adolescence in which he really is as alienated as he feels, the world might actually be out to get him, and true love is complicated by misunderstanding and incompatible parts. As harmless school antics escalate into explosive events, J!m makes a discovery that will alter the course of civilization, and maybe help his dating life.
