After a Year, Mystery Science Storybook, Volume 1 RETURNS TO AMAZON!

Back on Amazon in its original form!


After a long year of fighting, often times extremely bitterly, I can finally announce that we have declared victory against a pathetic, untalented filmmaker and his war against Mystery Science Storybook. The book is not only back on Blurb and Gumroad, we have FINALLY gotten the book BACK ONTO AMAZON IN IT'S ORIGINAL FORM!

This is so very important not only because Amazon is the world's biggest and primary seller of books, but also because they were THE LAST HOLDOUTS to allow Mystery Science Storybook to be sold off their digital shelves once again. Admittedly, we had to resubmit for publication under an alternative title, it is still the original book in it's original and unaltered form. No chapters were removed, not one word, not one image was changed!

It took an entire year, and every single day of the past year has been a battle for legitimacy, a battle for authenticity, and a battle for the right of freedom of expression. So many times people suggested that I move on. So many times people suggested I just give in to the demands of this utterly despicable human being. These were things I simply could not do. This is my time, I've created something that could not possibly exist otherwise. I am taking back what is mine, and I will not allow anybody to take this away from me ever again. I will do everything it takes to win, and I have.

If you don't know what all this is about, check out what others have said about it...
"Mystery Science Storybook takes scenes from some of the cheesy films made famous by RiffTrax and Mystery Science Theater 3000 and reimagines them as bedtime stories. It's a graphic novel that puts a new spin on cult classics like ... "Manos" The Hands of Fate that's perfect for bad movie fans of all ages!" - RiffTrax.com 

“[Mystery Science Storybook is] almost certainly what eyes and the English language were invented for. Buy a copy for your friend! Buy a copy for your enemy, who will then read it, love it, and become your friend, too. I'm not saying this book is the key to world peace, but isn't that too big a chance not to take?” - Matthew J. Elliott, RiffTrax Presents

"Before you is a veritable MSTie's playground with hilarious merry-go-rounds that will hurl you right into funny town. This love letter to all things riffing is a gift to the movie mockery community at large!" - Rikk Wolf, Incognito Cinema Warriors XP 
This book contains parodies of Manos: The Hands of Fate, Harry Potter, Twilight, Time Chasers, The Final Sacrifice, The Guy From Harlem, Cool as Ice, Hobgoblins, The Pumaman, Spider-Man, Road House, This Island Earth, Casablanca, The Room and more!

Celebrate with me, why not? If you haven't picked it up before, it's only $3.99. If you already have, leave a kind review so we can start rebuilding the foundation on which this entire project rests. I could not have done any of this without the support of all the people who believed in me and told me not to give up on this. You know who you are, thank you so much, and I love you.

Take a Stand Against Bullying and Censorship! Show Support for Rick Harper and #RoomFullofSpoons


Ladies and gentlemen, censorship via bullying is a very real problem these days. If somebody doesn't like what somebody else is saying or trying to say, all they have to do use bully tactics that are extremely difficult to combat and it's almost impossible to regain any momentum you had, and you are even afraid to speak out against the person who did it out of fear they will do it again.  My recent experience with Birdemic director James Nguyen proved to me that losing your rightful freedom of expression and, in turn, your emotional and financial well being, is something you absolutely do not want happening to you.



Rick Harper has created an amazing documentary called Room Full of Spoons about the making of the cult movie The Room, and the long guarded background of it's creator, Tommy Wiseau. Since the project's inception, it has been plagued with bully and legal tactics to keep him from making and releasing his movie, which he has absolutely every right to make. The latest chapter in all of this is a court injunction in Ontario which essentially cripples Harper's project from progressing. The movie is finished, but they cannot move on it until all this is settled. My purpose today is to express how very angry I am that things like this are allowed to happen.

This is a time when we need to stand up and say THIS IS CENSORSHIP! THIS IS BULLYING! AND THIS IS NOT OKAY! We need to stand up and declare these things loudly. We need to tell people who engage in these tactics that they are taking a sledgehammer to one of the corners of modern civilization; FREE SPEECH! 

I have personally seen this film, which is why I am asking everybody to please show support for this film and it's creator! Let him know that we believe in him and that we are DEMANDING that this documentary be released. Let those who are opposing him know that they cannot do these things and not suffer the consequences from consumers! PLEASE TAKE TO SOCIAL MEDIA WITH THE HASHTAG #ROOMFULLOFSPOONS TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR RICK HARPER AND HIS DOCUMENTARY! Let him know we believe in him and his cause! The world deserves to hear what he has to say, and he has every right on this planet to say it!
