MindFuck: A Poem by A.R. Braun

 What was before
 The universe was created?
 Was God alone?
 Before the universe
 There was nothing
 My mind can’t take it
 There had to have been something!
 Our small brains
 Can’t comprehend
 The beginning
 Any more than the end
 God was alone
 In an all-dark zone
 Losing his mind
 Before there was light
 Now his piggies
 We get fucked with
 Raped and insane
 Then done away with!
 God’s a writer
 And we’re protagonists
 The book’s hell-on-earth
 All around us: antagonists!
 The epilogue’s Hell
 After many spells
 On our heads
 From Satanists 

A. R. Braun is the author of the novels, Dogman of Illinois, Heaven’s Witches, Autonomy, The Not and Only Women in Hell, as well as the short-story collections, Insanity, Horrorbook: Twenty-Two Tales of Terror, Grimoire, and the novella, 66SICK (purchase on amazon). He became interested in horror when he read “The Telltale Heart” as an assignment in high school. By the time he was eighteen, he had the whole Stephen King collection and started writing short stories for friends and family. His main goal was to put together a heavy-metal band, and he spent many years working blue-collar jobs and seeking out musicians, but never fell in with the right kind of guys.

We aim to have quality conversations about “L”iterature within the genres of Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy. We feel that mainstream tends to neglect these genres as having real value in our communities. Reading and analyzing how we study fear and how writers use fear is important to find the monsters, the enemy, the feeling of isolation within our communities.
