About matthewkirshenblatt

I am a writer and blogger living in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario in Canada. When I'm not writing for the Sequart Research & Literacy Organization and GeekPr0n, I tend to write science-fiction, epic fantasy, horror, literary and mythological revisionisms, and generally weird fiction stories though I have been known to make poetry, television and comic book scripts. Also, when left to my own devices I tend to write weird and strange hybrid creative opinion piece articles like those you will find on this Blog. I am also very interested in comics, video games, Star Wars, table-top role-playing games, Neil Gaiman's works, H.P. Lovecraft, vampires, zombies, and budgies.

Samurai Jack: Aku’s Folly

I knew about Samurai Jack for a long time, but I never really got into it. It was just another cartoon that my brother and some friends were into that I just, at the time,… Source: Samurai Jack: Aku’s Folly

On the Origin of the Sexes War: Jamie Delano and John Higgins’ World Without End

I found World Without End almost completely by accident, or rather, in a chain of events that led to a name and a title. It began when I finally read AARGH! for the first time.… Source: On the Origin of … Continue reading

For a while, I thought I had a horrible feeling why Shadow left America. If you don’t any spoilers for either the book or the upcoming television series, please read no further. If not, I’d… Source: When Shadow Returns: Neil … Continue reading
