NOTE FROM WALLACE:
Thanks to M.C. Newberry for permitting republication of his poem as a guest post here at Glossy News!
You’ll find them among most types of mob
With shuttered mind and open gob.
You’d be forgiven for wondering what they do for a living
When they prefer to be taking rather than giving. Read the full story

Two more satire ebooks are coming out on May 31. Pre-order now!
Professor Smiggles & The New Intellectual Warfare (Gang of Sneers Volume 2)
Yes, this is a series! For Gang of Sneers Volume 1, see our cuddly old UKIP ranter, Tarquin Binnett:
Professor Guru Angus Lenn(on/in)vedanta Smiggles of the Social Constructionist String Theory Department in Bushmills Metaphysical College cuts quite a dashing figure. This pompous intellectual knows well enough how to bamboozle myriad uneducated and uncultivated hoodlums: such as vicious Confederate collectivists, genially whimsical UKIP candidates, gutter tabloid hacks, and sexually frustrated campus liberation crusaders.
But after a few episodes of crisp and generous dismissal, the good Professor fades from view, and two rather disturbing fairy tales present a more disconcerting picture. London’s new addition to the crowded market of postmodern soap operas, and the unhappy tale of un-un-reconstructionism end the witty Parisian proceedings on a rather poignant and dispiriting note.
This second volume of Gang of Sneers also includes the book Wallace Runnymede & The Great Flâneur Massacre: Reflections In & Out of Season. The latter is a reflexive non-fiction work which was originally published separately as an accompaniment to my novella The Great Flâneur Massacre, which is now being re-released on May 31 2016, simultaneously with Professor Smiggles & the New Intellectual Warfare.

I just mentioned an hour ago that I was branching out into publishing on Amazon. I am still publishing the Wallace Runnymede Satire Catastrophe free ebook series via Draft2Digital (Tolino, iBooks, Kobo, 24 Symbols, Nook, Page Foundry, Scribd); and I am still serializing these ebooks at the Satire Catastrophes site. But what about my Amazon ebooks?
Here is the first ebook I have ever released on Amazon.
If you think this is a very PC concept for a poetry ebook, you are wildly mistaken.
And I, by fairly obvious contrast, am wildly correct.
Or, at least, wildly contrarian... Read the full story

WASHINGTON D.C. – A collection of declassified letters written by the late al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden, has revealed that the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks was a surprisingly beautiful and disciplined writer.
According to researchers at the US Military Academy, bin Laden, who was killed in a U.S. operation in Pakistan last May, displayed surprisingly intricate transitional development and advanced grammatical understanding throughout the 175-page cache seized by military forces during the raid on the Abbottabad compound.

Poets are bad enough, but the self-proclaimed poets are even worse still. Sometimes you want to challenge them, see if they’ve really got what it takes.
Well this nay-sayer does just that with, well, unexpected results.
I guess the full-on war against poetry will have to wait until next year. Read the full story

Aries: The Stars understand and sympathize with your plan to move to either Amsterdam or Berlin where you feel people with your particular, shall we say interests are better accepted.
However, The Stars have to warn you that even the residents of those two bastions of tolerance are going to look at what you’re into and say, “man, that’s fucked up”. Read the full story

A young, aimless writer. A format no one cared about. The words everyone has to look up in an online dictionary. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be an unknown poet, this is the poem you need to ignore. Critics are raving about the new prose poem that everyone is calling the most boring event of the year. Read the full story

GARY, Indiana, (GlossyNews) — Sixties icon Bob Dylan appeared, in all of his monochromatic splendor, at the National Press Club this week, announcing a new chapter in what’s already been an amazing career. Said the legendary balladeer, whom some consider the American version of Carl Sandburg, “Iben woando sum further you in furlong tom.” Read the full story

Although “falling in love” is probably the most wonderful feeling in the world and the most mysterious state of mind one can find him/herself within, science tells us that “falling in love” is very transient and not the answer to most of a person’s problems. There is no “happily-ever-after” fairy-tales in real life, say the social scientists who study this phenomenon. The (informal) definition of “true love” in Western Societies really only refers to one thing: strong and passionate feeling that consumes both partners in “a strong romantic (or sexual), mutual feeling,” which is scientifically and empirically short-lived.

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Twelve court subpoenas,
Eleven texts saying ‘ph*ck you’,
Ten bailiffs with repossession orders,
Nine blokes to cut the gas off,
Eight maids with paternity claims,
Seven photos of her toy boys, Read the full story
