DNF

 

I get really mad when I see

These people

Especially white people

Complain on twitter

About reading these 

Literary classics

Written by 

Disgusting old white men

They are so revolted by the work

They have to DNF the book

“Did Not Finish”

They post about this

Virtue signaling 

Hoping that someone will see them

As woke

Sometimes they even will post this with

A picture of themselves

Looking melancholy

Just so their “friends”

Can see the white guilt 

In their eyes.

This is the most ridiculous thing in the world

You cannot change history 

By DNFing it

You can’t ignore the past

And hopes that it goes away

The only thing you can do

Is learn from the past

Those who don’t learn from the past

Are doomed to repeat it

What in the world is wrong with you people

No one will remember that you didn’t 

Finish a book written by a dead white guy

History will remember the work

Of said dead white guy

You will fade into obscurity

Because you do not understand

The battle

You are the same people

That read Stephen King

Who throws the N word around

Like candy from a piñata at a child’s party

Who objectifies women 

But that’s okay

Because the remake of IT was cool

It had neato Funko Pops

You disgust me

You don’t even know what your battling

Enjoy the likes and retweets

That’s all you ever get.

A bunch of my stories will be appearing places soon!

Hey there folks! As you know a bunch of my stuff is appearing in Weird Mask. You can find more about that at www.weirdmask.com

Starting Sept. 1st I will also have a daily serial at Weird Mask. It’s one that if you’ve been following me for a long time you will remember. It’s called Love & Hate. It’s my love letter to soaps that I grew up with. Everything from Days of our Lives to Robotech. LOL.

I have a couple poems that have been picked up by a BEAUTIFUL zine called Strange Romance. I will give you details once I get them.

I have another story, that I originally wrote in 1999, but lost it and had to rewrite it from memory yesterday. Its been accepted for the next issue of the Rock N Roll Horror zine. It’s a great zine. I have the first two issues and love them.

Next, I sent a story called Head into a site that I used to work with a lot that went on a long hiatus. The site is called Horrotica. They used to be affiliated with World of Myth although I don’t know if that’s still a thing.

Anyhow, Just a little heads up of a ton of cool stuff.

Wait! I just remembered something!

I have another story called The Master, The Android and the Garlows that had been accepted by Rhetoric Askew. That is supposed to come out next month I think. I haven’t heard anything, but I think Sept is what they said. 🙂

Yay.

Anyhow, pretty busy stuff.

On Oct. 1st a brand new serial of mine starts on Weird Mask called The Dicks. That’s all I can tell you about it as of now. More details to come.

If you are following Weird Mask, the final part of The Gavel: Fight Night will be released in the Sept issue of the Zine.

Until next time folks.

The site is up and we have put out three zines so far with the fourth coming out on Sept. 1st. Please stop by and check out the site.

Also, if you would like to help support me and the zine, please consider donating to my patreon. I even have a subscription for Weird Mask in there if you are interested.

PFLP 1 – Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs & Phoenix on the Sword by Robert E. Howard

Volume 1 Issue 1

Welcome to the first issue of the Pulp Fiction Literary Podcast! I’m your host Matt Wall and today we will be going over two of my favorites: A Princess of Mars by ERB and the first Conan story, Phoenix on the Sword by REH.

Next week we will continue Princess of Mars and be visited by H.P. Lovecraft’s Dagon!

I’m a serial killer of pen names

I have written a lot of things, under a lot of different names over the years.

One of the reasons why many of you haven’t heard from the last year or so is because i became completely overwhelmed with trying to juggle all the different names.

the main reason why I had so many names is because I like writing a lot of different genres. So i had a name for horror, for mystery, for detective, for science fiction, for transgressive, etc. I even had names for the films I made and the different names for the different genres of music I put out.

I can’t handle all of those personalities.

I can’t remember who does what and how often.

I decided to kill all of my pen names.

and to make sure that it doesn’t happen again, I am just going by my real name for now on. Matt Wall.

If you like my writing, but don’t like horror, I will make it very clear what is horror and what is not and so on.

I really want to thank every one of my readers who has stuck by be and is willing to give me a chance again after my hiatus. You won’t be disappointed.

For those of you wondering what happened to the last Black Star Canyon book, it will be posted very soon I promise.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or comment below and I will answer them as soon as I can.

Thanks.
