Words are powerful things. Nothing proved this more than the recent presidential election. We can use words to fight back. This cute cat has a sword on his hip, a pen in his hand and his fist raised in the air. The sun is rising behind him and it's time for a showdown. Original arwork by Sue Cervenka.

Abraham Hollingsworth was an author who suffered momentous writer’s block. In 1957, he penned the internationally acclaimed The Moral Decline Of African Mountain Apes and was hailed as a triumphant new literary voice. Ten years later, the world was still waiting for his follow-up novel and in 1970, Hollingsworth’s publisher finally decided to sack his under-performing butt. In 1987, the thirty-year mental-block was seemingly ended when Hollingsworth released his second novel, however it turned out to be an abridged version of his first novel. He has been in self-imposed exile ever since.
