misternizz / Walt O'Hara

An amateur historian, would-be podcaster and fan of old pulp and weird fiction. I am trying my hand at reading and recording works by Dunsany, Clark Ashton Smith and other pulp writers, as well as surrealist and humorists such as Frank Key.

There are three people in misternizz’s collective.

  1. “We are Coming by Day and by Night”

    This post is a reading of the text of a leaflet dropped on Nazi Germany by RAF bombers in the Summer of 1942. Although famed Strategic Bomber visionary Arthur "Bomber" Harris signed it, he subsequently denied its authorship.

  4. A Letter to My Old Master, by Jourdon Anderson, read by Walter O’Hara

    In August of 1865, a Colonel P.H. Anderson of Big Spring, Tennessee, wrote to his former slave, Jourdon Anderson, and requested that he come back to work on his farm. Jourdon — who, since being emancipated, had moved to Ohio, found paid work, and was now supporting his family — responded spectacularly by way of the letter seen below (a letter which, according to newspapers at the time, he dictated).
