Existential Terror and Breakfast by Rev. Fitz

An existential serial with cereal. 

Existential Terror and Breakfast follows the dreary, listless life of Malcolm Steadman. It concerns not the exciting, life affirming moments of his life, but rather the tedious, boring moments that are interrupted by epiphanies both bleak and terrible without warning when he fails to busy himself. It concerns the moments that make breakfast too profound to eat.

Note: Existential Terror and Breakfast contains some harsh language.

A serialized novel, updating weekly

A Terror for Malcolm, a pleasure for me

By Maromar, author of Mystic Nan

Apr 17, 2017: Firstly, I must commend Rev. Fitz for his use of inkblots on his website, it fits tastefully with the story’s main source of conflict, Malcolm’s own mind.

At first, the style and writing mechanics are minimalistic, but tight. Just enough information is given to set the scene, and no more. This does wonders for trivializing the physical world, lending greater impact to Malcolm’s inner crisis. Later, Rev. Fitz treats us with more elaborate prose that incorporates many scenery aspects with his [more . . .]

No title

By Docmars, author of Adventures in the Pirate Continent

Dec 14, 2017: This is the type of story where you get up and you stare at something for a while in a way that never really occurred at you to stare at before. Existential chair breakfast is an interesting and odd little odd story of Malcolm, a simple, lonely man who lives in a simple, quite lonely world, who, one day, when staring at a piece of toast, comes to the realization that his entire life is pointless and terrible and awful in all those ways. If that sounds funny to [more . . .]
