Arthur Graham is a professional editor/writer currently residing in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is an accomplished noveler, storyist, and publishite by all accounts. His work has been unfairly compared to that of Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Once a promising purveyor of fine literary fiction, he has since been reduced to churning out chapbooks instead. He is not on Facebook but he does own a TV, so at least he's not a total hipster.

Cofounder and former head editor of Rooster Republic Press. Sitting Editor in Chief of Horror Sleaze Trash.

In short, I am an enigma, a paradox. An enigmatic, paradoxical, pretentious idiot. If I had to guess why, I'd say I'm this way for the same reason others make a habit of insulting strangers online -- my parents didn't love me growing up.(less)

Arthur’s Recent Updates

Arthur Graham and 4 other people liked W.D. Clarke's status update
W.D. Clarke
W.D. Clarke is on page 251 of 560 of Inside Story: There exists a subterranean world where pathological fantasies disguised as ideas are churned out by crooks and half-educated fanatics [notably the lower clergy] for the benefit of the ignorant and the superstitious. There are times when this underworld emerges from the depths and suddenly fascinates, captures, and dominates multitudes of usually sane and responsible people, who thereupon take leave of sanity...

“And the years flow past, each of them as unremarkable as the next, as unnoticed as nanoseconds, in fact, not even long enough to contain anything noticeable – centuries just barely registered as moments in space/time. Soon the millennia are passing by at a modest rate of 47 per minute, and of course all manner of things noticeable and not-so-noticeable occur along the way (though most falling into the latter category). Naturally there come periods where lying is greatly rewarded, followed by periods where lying is greatly punished (our poor unlucky editor!), along with every other conceivable and inconceivable reversal and re-reversal of standards, and…

Wait, did anyone else just hear God yawn?”
Arthur Graham

“Florida was like a pathetic, flaccid cock unable to
work it up. Meanwhile, Cuba sat waiting like a big, wet
pussy, not even a hundred miles out.”
Arthur Graham

“I wasn't sure which I appreciated less—the insincere concern or the genuine indifference.”
Arthur Graham, Editorial

Melki Thanks for the freebie. This is spring break, so both husband and kid are home annoying the hell out of me, but I should be able to start later in the week.

karen blame whoever keeps sending them to my inbox...


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Where's the fun in laying low? LOL, I can understand needing to store some energy for that! Wish I could come by and say "hi" but that's a bit of a trek for me!

Hope all is wonderful and that you get into a lil bit of trouble now and then to keep things interesting ;)


message 35: by karen

karen ha!! i see what you did there!!!

and it was only 73 degrees out at the time of its capture. since then, it has been in the 90s. there is no photographic evidence of it, though, because i was indistinguishable from a shimmery oil slick.

'cuz i still got style

David Katzman Are you, like, a model or sumthin? Will you sign my underpants?


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Elves are wonderful :) and you make a lovely elf. And of course I do.... you can't post mostly naked pictures of yourself and expect a jacket to alter that visual! Although, you look nice in the coat, as well :)..... I'm very flattering today ( I don't know what's wrong with me - I think I need coffee)


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* It was difficult but I just pictured the guy in the picture almost naked and from there it was smooth sailings.


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Your profile kind of looks like an emo elf, Arthur, quite lovely but uncharacteristic looking - from what I've surmised of you. I love the black and white though :)


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* LOL, I'm a stalker so I noticed this but normally responding on my wall is the way to reply (FYI) but no, I really don't think it's much of a coincidence LOL.

So, will you send me a Paypal invoice...or is it amazon?

Jenn(ifer) Okay, first things first. GR etiquette 101 - you don't respond to someone's message on your own profile -- you write your response on their profile. Otherwise, how is one to know you've responded?
