About Us

Picking each story’s ingredients carefully, from their yeasty origins to their hammy plots, Ol’ Matty Hannibal Butler boldly chews through zesty summaries, meaty analysis, then tells you once and for all, without pretension or apology, if that word sandwich is still fresh and, of course, delicious. Has Ol’ Matty Hannibal Butler bit off a bite more than he could chew? Probably. But where there’s a will, there’s a Hemingway. And it’s all worth it for a bite of that Delicious Word Sandwich. Delicious Word Sandwich: readable edibles; eat with your whole face.

Beautiful, Frightening and Silent with Jennifer Gordon

Disgraced wastrel and former history Professor R.B. Ol' Matty discovers and begrudgingly introduces the first ever Delicious Word Sandwich frozen tape! Here, Ol' Matty had the absolute honour of discussing Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House" and Jennifer Gordon's debut novel "Beautiful, Frightening and Silent" with none other than the author herself, Jennifer Gordon. Sharing their writing dreams, triumphs, trials and literary tattoo ideas, Ol' Matty and Jennifer Gordon delve into wonderful psychological journeys and grapple soul-curdling horror to masterfully conjure not one, but two Delicious Word Sandwiches of the most unique, experimental, delectable and appropriately terrifying nature. Dr Jekyll wishes he could do horror and madcap concoctions this good. Jennifer Gordon's Beautiful, Frightening and Silent is available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

Beautiful, Frightening and Silent with Jennifer Gordon

The Phantom of the Opera Sandwich

Ol' Matty is kicking back after some well earned dishonourably discharged R&R when he realises that the demon bear terrorising Paris might be somewhat his fault. When a wise cricket tries to give him advice, Ol' Matty heeds by destroying the plane and landing in the Paris Opera, toppling a chandelier into an innocent and aiding a kidnapping in one less-than-heroic swing. Realising that Gaston Leroux's famous alleged Opera Ghost has turned the Opera into a deadly extension of their devious self, Ol' Matty follows the Phantom to his lair hoping to find the bear, in truth, under the pale mask, and, if not, at the very least bust some ghosts. Ol' Matty finds adventure, torture, taverns, and barrels of fun with a pinch of gunpowder. And, of course, he might just find a Delicious Word Sandwich.

The Phantom of the Opera Sandwich

The Catch-22 Sandwich

Just when Ol’ Matty thinks he’s got it made, escaping the island, making a new best friend, headed to a new island of wine and people, he start to suspect a strange truth when he is drafted into World War II. Ol’ Matty and his new-new best friend Yo-Yo navigate the perils of the war and, worse, Joseph Heller’s ultimate paradoxical tragedy Catch-22. Thrilling dogfights, tomatoes and potato peelers bloodily fly with Ol’ Matty through the bullet drenched sky as Ol’ Matty comes to learn Joseph Heller’s ultimate truth and confirms his initial suspicion: People are trash, and that may just make life worth living. Damn you, you beautiful Catch-22.

The Catch-22 Sandwich

The Robinson Crusoe Sandwich

Ol’ Matty confronts his arch-nemesis and escapes all of his enemies to find some reprieve, reading on a beach, when he is discovered by a friendly fellow castaway named Rob. Ol’ Matty liberally makes himself way too much at home in Rob’s impressive fortifications, and derives a sandwich from the ultimate castaway tale, while he derides the ultimate castaway, the archetypal novel adventure Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, published in 1714. In spite of it being the tri-centennial of this story, Ol’ Matty insists it’s not at all stale nor mouldy. Time will tell, as will his bowels.

The Robinson Crusoe Sandwich

The King Solomon's Mines Sandwich

Freed from the catacombs, Ol' Matty is now pursued by a vengeful M16 packing bear and has somehow used his "charms" to befriend a secret kingdom of hunters. Surprisingly civil, Ol' Matty decides to repay them with a Delicious Word Sandwich, regaling the story of King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard, which can only go well because it's not too colonialist. Idiot.

The King Solomon's Mines Sandwich

The Sun Also Rises Sandwich

Published in 1926, Ernest Hemingway told the spicy, dramatic tale of a group of passionate and broken expatriates spending a wine-hazed week at the Pamplona Fiesta, where all their interpersonal dramas come to full boil. Things are heating up for Ol' Matty, too, as he finds seducing a volcano for a ride out of the Center of the Earth was more than he bargained for. I'm not even surprised anymore. Sure, seduce a volcano.

The Sun Also Rises Sandwich

Journey to the Center of the Earth Sandwich

Published in 1864, Jules Verne began his journey into becoming the Father of Science Fiction with this science-adventure classic theorising a subterranean, prehistoric world existing deep under the earth's surface (and potentially within the human psyche). How Ol' Matty thinks this will help him out of the catacombs, Zeus freakin' knows.

The Bell Jar Sandwich

The Demon Breaderick has run off with Ol' Matty's Kilimanjaro Sandwich, severing our hero's hand and hope in the process. In his despair, Ol' Matty finds an understanding voice in Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar", a hearty and heartfelt coming of age story about growth through pain and suffering.

The Bell Jar Sandwich

The Snows of Kilimanjaro Sandwich

Ol' Matty makes both his great return and his official debut as he rises from the dead to kill some manjaros and transform Ernest Hemingway's classic short story "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" into its sandwich form, with all the hard-hitting flavour of four novels in one and the burnt out souls at their centre. I had to try so hard to convince him not to burn every ingredient. So. Hard.

Oh! The Places You'll Go by Dr Seuss

Knowledge is power. So is food. Therefore eat knowledge. "Oh! The Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss goes to many, many places - especially if you read it with Ol' Matty - but does it go through my digestive tract?
