What the Hell is the TLO Now for Except for the Ego of Its Controller?

Posted in Uncategorized on July 26, 2019 by marksamuels

It’s about as much use as the EU whose greatest assets have already walked out (or are the verge of doing so ). All that remains are the virtue-signalling haters and reality-deniers clinging to its wreckage. They’re not unbiased or neutral, they’re not really interested in weird fiction; they want extreme Leftist supremacy at all costs. Conservatives like an an Aickman or a Machen, were those two around now, would be regarded as anathema simply for their politics rather than their ability. To extend the metaphor: If you support the current TLO you support the tyranny of the Left. This is not hyperbole. There is an extensive list of former, illustrious supporters who have left and are now highly conspicuous by their continued absence.

Fan Mail

“Child of Old Leech: aka” now grinds his teeth at any dissent posted anywhere on the internet. Even Goodreads isn’t safe. Complete elimination of any author to the right of Maxim Gorky is surely the only sensible course left to the last of the remaining regular posters of the TLO.

Huh? Projection, much?

Dear me.

Good Riddance

Farewell and good riddance, I trust, to the truly rotten TLO and its dictator, Herr J.P.

I truly hope it never comes back for the sake of the greater good of weird fiction in general. The place is full of hate and bile masquerading as empathetic concern.

You Think We’re Going to Pull Back and Admit Defeat

You’re wrong. We’re going to carry on until we win and you finally recognise that you’ve already lost.

I Was Beloved Of All My Men

Up to the penultimate chapter (11) of Witch-Cult Abbey. I hesitate to mention it, but, nevertheless, I will finally write the politically-motivated haters, the puerile bully-victims and the kow-towing elitist lick-spittlers into cultural irrelevance one way or another. Intrinsic aesthetic merit has no race, no gender, no creed and no philosophy. Posterity is on my side. Not yours. An Englishman is an Englishman by birthright and nothing else, whatever his background. Catholic, Jew, Muslim or Protestant etc.

Hey ho. That’s my claim.

A Light That Cannot Be Put Out

Three years of agony and anti-democracy against us. But the hope of freedom cannot be so easily dismissed or forgotten by despots.
