"Rodent Mutation" is my favorite of the Badger Books series for a few reasons. As the proud owner of 10 pet rats, the idea of giant rats....well...I kinda like it. Maybe I wouldn't feel that way if they were feral...but still...I get a little gooey inside thinking about it. And to make things even more fun (and super cheesy), the back cover lets us know that the mutation isn't just gigantism. No, no, no! There's so much more to it than that. Did you know these giant rats can teleport? Nothing can contain the rodent menace, because they'll just teleport out of their cages. This totally needs to be made into a movie. BUT, I demand these use large people in rodent costumes and not CGI. It's gotta be old school like that.
P.S. I realize that the rodents featured on the cover are beavers. Yep, giant beavers. However, the back cover explicitly tells us that rats and beavers both turned into teleporting giants and the title itself does say "rodent" mutation, not "beaver" mutation.

I am a pop culture buff and collector, who focuses on the odd, subversive, and fringe elements of Western culture. In 2005, I edited a book for Feral House called "Sin-A-Rama: Sleaze Sex Paperbacks of the Sixties." The vintage oddities in my collection include victoriana, sideshow, medical, and kitsch. I am also an amateur sewer, making clothing from vintage mod patterns.
