Oh, you’re not here to book a trip to Cadabra Island?
Then maybe you’re here for Urban Legends, Apocrypha and other comedy bits by L. M. Warren, a humorist, parodist, philanthropist, anarchist and occasional sporocyst. These are some interesting facts, lies, half-truths and rumors spread around about the author and his works.
As fans of SNOPES.com, IMDB Trivia, and Wikipedia, we realize that just because something may be completely made up and false doesn’t mean it can’t be interesting and believable. In that spirit…
Urban Legends & L. M. Warren Apocrypha
Remember the format:

It originally debuted at Subversify.com. +

Other L. M. Warren Urban Legends
“Perhaps some of my writer friends can relate: there are some things better left unsaid, some characters best aborted, and some stories best forgotten. What few people realize is just how much crap goes on in our heads before something truly amazing is actually birthed. Many stories are rewritten or retooled and sometimes wiped out altogether for the good of humanity.”
Gouging the Wound was buried in the archives, never to be released. +
Read by only a few ardent and extremist Warren followers, Gouging the Wound is said to be Warren’s most emotionally vexing book to read, and hence, was never released to the public; Warren cited that he “Loved people too much to let them read it.” He describes the book as “disturbing, traumatic and possessing no redeeming value. Even the message was crap, since it was hypocritical wisdom all the way.” This esoteric review doesn’t do much to explain the book, but it’s safe to assume this means bad news for a future release. It is pushed far beyond 10 years if ever, since Warren admits, “Releasing it would probably mean my death or someone else’s death. It is a book about death. It resulted in the end of at least one human life, as far as I know, perhaps more. There is no good that can come from releasing it. It is truly possessed by a demon.”
Jaded Sapphira’s release has been indefinitely postponed. +
Only a few people have read this mysterious book, oftentimes referenced by Warren and his devotees but one that never received a wide release. Warren’s readers signed a gag order. Some believe it is the unofficial sequel to Attempted Rapture though this cannot be verified. Warren has not commented on the content but does list this as one book that may be released “sometime in the distant future.” Warren has admitted to being uneasy about the content, stating that anyone who read it immediately developed sexual and romantic feelings for the author. He speculates this could be because of a hex contained early on in the book.
