    1. If you're a fan of The Simpsons, you're already a John Swartzwelder fan. Not only has he written more episodes than any other writer, but his episodes are many fan favorites, such as Whacking Day (1993), Homer the Great (Stonecutters, 1995), Homer the Smithers (1996), and Homie the Clown (Clown School, 1995), along with 55 other incredible episodes.Dead Men Scare Me Stupid is an adventure of Frank Burly, the world's most dimwitted, yet likeable, detective. In this adventure two of his former cli [...]

    2. equally silly as all the rest of these books, though this one is a little tighter writing than some of the earlier ones.

    3. John Swartzwelder is kind of the mad genius behind some of the greatest moments during the golden age of animated TV show The Simpsons. He's a figure of mystery to the fans, and even to his fellow show creators he seems a bit enigmatic. Back in 2003, though, he started (seemingly self-) publishing one of these hard-boiled detective parody novels featuring his idiot protagonist Frank Burly. This one is from 2008, so much has already occurred in Burly's life, but it's not necessary to have gone th [...]

    4. Okay, so this is the weakest of the Frank Burly detective series that I've read so far. Some of the gags kind of drag and the overall conflict isn't developed as well as the previous books. In fact it sort of felt like Swartzwelder just made up random opportunities for jokes and tried to see what stuck. Farcical humor and crazy, offbeat happenings are expected to some extent in the series obviously, but previous books seemed to have more of an outline that worked for developing punchlines and sa [...]

    5. Very funny book. If you like the Simpson's humor, you'll like this. It is a very short story with forgettable characters, a plot that is not very interesting, and a resolution that happens over the course of a few pages. However, this book is not trying to be any of those things. It's hilarious, and you can finish over the course of a few hours. Read it, enjoy it as you're reading it, then forget it.

    6. This one had a few less laugh-out-loud jokes than others of the Burly books, but it also had more conceptually hilarious pieces: how hard ghosts have to work, how great the world is for not being born, the chapters where a ghost is trying to bring his corpse back to life. More high-concept humor, but a few less laughs.

    7. Anyone who likes the Simpsons should read this book. Anyone who likes clever word play and unexpected dialogue should also read it. Actually, go ahead and read it, because if you don't like it that is probably a character flaw on your part and not my fault. Read the rest of Swartzwelder's books too.

    8. Absurd, and hilarious - everything you'd expect from another John Swartzwelder story about the great Frank Burly.

    9. I don't think I was in the mood for it to be honest. Didn't enjoy it nearly as much as his other books I've read.
