“Dorsey’s brilliantly, profanely funny 11th novel…zips along like P.G. Wodehouse’s best work.”
 —Richmond Times-Dispatch


Tim Dorsey’s outrageously zany, gleefully violent, and uproariously funny Nuclear Jellyfish marks the triumphant return of lovable, thrill-killing Florida historian and tireless civic booster Serge A. Storms. The bestselling author of Atomic Lobster, Triggerfish Twist, and Florida Roadkill, Dorsey can match Carl Hiaasen punch-for-punch when it comes to fictionally depicting Sunshine State madness—and he’s taken his rightful place alongside Christopher Moore in the pantheon of top American humorists. Nuclear Jellyfish is a veritable WMD of radioactive hilarity—as Denver’s Rocky Mountain News so aptly puts it, “It doesn’t get any better.”

California Literary Review

When it comes to mayhem, lunacy, and all things eccentric, Tim Dorsey’s Serge Storm doesn’t take backseat to anyone — not to anybody or anything dreamed up by Hunter Thompson (or even practiced personally by the good doctor himself), by Carl Hiaasen or the great Florida crime novelist Charles Wil...
