  • Consecration of the Whipstain by Indignant Senility (TYPE096) » Type | A record label
    "Recorded through amplifiers and microphones to give the music a chance to ‘breathe’, the fuzzy pictures slowly come to life and offer a shocking amount of depth and variety. At times it sounds like a decaying sound strip from a 30s suspense reel, with all the crackle and flicker you’d expect to come alongside that. Maher’s sounds take us into places we might not want to go, but there’s no denying that once you’re there it’s hard to wrench yourself free."

Comics Tor

Dear Tor.com, you seem to have forgotten that you do comics for about a year, and have walked away from the powerful web-to-print model you were presumably exploring with Dan Goldman’s RED LIGHT PROPERTIES.  Given that you are clearly funded for comics work, since I can’t imagine the likes of Mike Mignola and Craig Thompson work for free, and have begun commissioning anew… can I expect to see another, more sustained stab at a disruptive presence in the comics medium by a noted sf prose publisher (publisher, in fact, of my daughter’s current favourite author, Cherie Priest)?  Or are you just farting about?
