An accounting of disclosures fantastic

I had the opportunity to work with some extraordinary artists this year. Huge thanks to Alcebiades Diniz Miguel, Márcio Simões and Bethany White at Raphus Press who all did truly magnificent work on Secretariat. Thanks also to Dan Ghetu and Damian Murphy at Mount Abraxas Press for including my story Horrill Hill in their remarkable Cioran anthology Wounds of Wounds. Much gratitude to Mark Beech at Egaeus Press for including my novelette The Sorrows of Satan’s Book in his wonderful anthology Book of the Sea. I couldn’t possibly ask for better circumstances and instances to work with these immensely talented publishers, editors, designers- all truly great artists. And humbled to be in print with such wonderful writers in these two anthologies.  I am also grateful for those who have responded to this work including Des Lewis, Mark Andresen, and Dejan Ohnjanovic of Rue Morgue, and all those who have responded or supported my work. Heartfelt gratitude. You look up, and year is coming to an end already! Immensely looking forward to 2019. Happy Holidays and New Year.

Egaeus Press Book of the Sea and The Last Resort

A collection of dark, strange or uncategorizable pieces for which the sea provides the great mystery; stories and poems which explore its pull on the human heart, its alienness, its treachery, its unfathomable vastness; and more than anything, what it makes us creatures – us unwelcome, gill-less land-dwellers – do, be, become.

From Pokerflat recordings:

”The original vinyl-pressing only included a selection of songs from the original 13-track album release. It missed out on songs which had been released on singles or didn’t “fit” on the so called “vinyl edition”. Due to ‘public demand’ and simply because this album deserves a proper vinyl release we are happy to finally present, for the first time, the full album on vinyl. It spans over three vinyl discs and is packed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve which also holds a download-code.”
