Chuck Tingle

NSFW: Dr. Chuck Tingle May Be This Generation’s Jane Austen

So I walked into the office late today (double booked myself, oops) and pretty much as soon as I sat down, my editors Chris and Laura-Blaise said, “Do we have a story for you.” And they did, oooh they did.

 

Based on name alone, Dr. Chuck Tingle has a new fan. Based on body of work, Chuck Tingle has a new biggest fan, and it’s me. I’m full on stan, if you will.

 

The pseudonymous author specializes in gay niche erotica, self-publishing through Amazon.com with predominantly ebooks, but also paperbacks and audiobooks. 

 

I’m literally not kidding when I type this: Doctor Chuck Tingle began his writing career with dinosaur erotica before expanding his iconic work to include unicorns, Bigfeet, “and various anthropomorphized objects and even concepts.”

 

CONCEPTS. Conceptually erotic fiction. I’m enthralled.

 

In April 2016, Tingle’s story Space Raptor Butt Invasion was shortlisted for a Hugo Award for Best Short Story. Space Raptor Butt Invasion isn’t even in my shortlist for Best Chuck Tingle Title.

 

As far as Tingle’s (lol) identity goes, there’s not much to know. The author calls himself a “taekwondo grandmaster from Billings, Montana, who acquired his PhD in holistic massage from DeVry University.” Worth noting, DeVry doesn’t offer that program.

 

The mystery became a bit clearer when a man calling himself Tingle’s son, Jon, offering a bit of clarity. Tingle’s own twitter account confirmed Jon’s identity. Jon continued his press tour with a Reddit AMA, divulging that Tingle is “an autistic savant, but also suffers from schizophrenia.” Jon continued, saying he edits his father’s work before its publication and also provides daily care for his father. 

 

And now, for your own pleasure, my favorite titles from Dr. Chuck Tingle’s extensive collection of work.

With honorable mentions going to: Fake News, Real Boners and Schrodinger’s Butt.

 

Vox author Aja Romano has speculated that Tingle’s work may be a deliberate satire on poorly written self published erotica, and if that’s true, all I have to say is
