280 Dog Years


The Holy Grail Press is dedicated to promoting work that standard publishers... you know, those with standards, might be reluctant to publish, which pretty much leaves poetry.  And let's face it:  No one publishes poetry.  So in the end, we’re left with a lot of free time.



Word of the Every So Often  

May 27, 2022

wonk:  (noun)  often used derogatorily, a person who takes a particularly specialized interest in the minute details of a field of study, especially with politics.  You want to know about the influence of Russian immigrants on the passage of the infrastructure bill?  Then just ask Bill, he's our resident wonk.

What to do with a Brain

The only danger with politics is if you actually take it seriously.  I mean, what's the worse that's gonna happen?  It's not like anybody's going to die.

No matter how much evidence we all see to the contrary, we're all still not entirely convinced that any of us are ever going to die.

Welcome Dr. Ivan Tupidsay!

The Holy Grail Press is pleased to announce that the renown scholar, Dr. Ivan Tupidsay, is the newest member of our staff.


Dr. Tupidsay received his PhD in Applied Informational Acquisition from the University of Senegal in 1991, where he remained as a lecturer and a research fellow for the next six years.  During that time he published regularly, foremost of which was the critically acclaimed The Development of the Spork:  A Dream Come True.  In 1997 he accepted a seat at the University of Tuvalu as a visiting lecturer.  Under the impression that Dr. Tupidsay was somebody others would care about, he was almost immediately kidnapped by the terrorist cell Die Putz Scum, a group of radicals seeking the independence of Funafuti.  Having that impression clarified, the terrorists subsequently released Dr. Tupidsay.  Dr. Tupidsay went on to write about the experience in his exposee, Those Knives are Sharp.  Currently Dr. Tupidsay is on sabatical from the University of Milan while he finishes his latest novel, Title.


The Holy Grail Press is honored to be associated with such a scholar and a gentleman as Dr. Tupidsay.  In addition to contributing, he will also serve as Technical Consultant and Scientific Editor for HGP. 


Featured in our newest tab, Academia, is Dr. Ivan Tupidsay’s latest essay, “The Liberal Gene:  Determining subconscious political and religious inclinations” which he co-wrote with Dr. Thaddeus Whoopenhoffer and our own Mandrake Chapman.

HGP Welcomes Mrs. Bimbaum

HGP is honored to have added the esteemed grammarian, Mrs. Vula Bimbaum, to our editorial staff.  Mrs. Bimbaum taught English for 38 years at the Jimmy Carter Middle School (formerly, the Richard M. Nixon Junior High), and one year of high school Latin, as well as published the Weekly Grammarian from 1982-1987, a locally distributed news letter in the greater Kansas City area.  Says Mrs. Bimbaum, “When it comes to bad grammar, there is never a scarcity of examples.  Never has been.  Now when you write this, make sure that you join “Never has been” to the previous sentence.  Otherwise it will be a fragmented sentence.  Now, we couldn’t have that, could we?”  In addition to her publishing forte, which Mrs. Bimbaum insists should be pronounced “fort,” she is one of the founding members of the  Professional Structuralist Grammarians’ Association and a member of the Professional Organization of English Majors.  An early essay of Mrs. Bimbaum’s, “2011:  When Grammarians Rule the Earth,” is being featured this week in our Stories department.
