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

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.

Whatever Happened to Oliver Northrup?

I knew this guy... a guy named Oliver.  Grew up with him.  So he got drafted.  They made him join the Army.  They were going to send him to war.  They were going to send him to this hell of a backwater where he’d probably get blown all to pieces all over some piece of ground that nobody truly cared about, much less him.  Understandably he was reluctant to go.  So he comes up with this scheme.  He starts telling everybody that he is God.  Not an angel or a prophet or some relative, but God the Almighty.  You want to know what happened?  They believed him.  They really did.  Guys were coming around to his tent and confessing their sins.  They gave him the chapel on Sundays.  Even the General got his blessing.  I mean, they really believed it.  But they made him go anyway.  He came back unscratched.  You know... a thing like that... it has to mess with you.  Just a little bit, I’d think.  But it has to.
