THE PISS FAIRY IS IN THE MADHOUSE

Lee Allen Howard's CALL OF THE PISS FAIRY Coming Soon Armed with electric hair trimmers and a military fighting knife, Russell accepts his commission. There’s more than one way to skin a cat. Russell Pisarek is 26 years old and still wets the bed. He grew up different from other young men because his vicious mother punished him for wetting by shaving his head, advertising his problem to all his high school classmates.
