ABERRANT NECROPOLIS has been published.
A collection of the photography of Ellen Rogers. I wrote the foreword. You can learn more about it here. You can order it here.
Gardens and open settings feature often in Ellen’s images. Drifting figures seemingly captured preparatory to some sky ritual or midnight mass. Women overcome by the laudanum languor of a decadent life, drinking in the electromagnetic fields of sacred sites. Perhaps bit players in an Aleister Crowley performance. Seen smokily through time and space, reaching some alternate Biba moment, or a private film made in a world where Kenneth Grant could make a scene like Kenneth Anger, art direction by Austin Osman Spare…
Greg Rucka & Rick Burchett’s webcomic LADY SABRE AND THE PIRATES OF THE INEFFABLE AETHER has launched, at ineffableaether.com.
I am not attending San Diego Comic-Con this year. People keep asking me that for some reason.
Met with the excellent Alex Garcia of Legendary Pictures to talk about GRAVEL. Also other interesting people. Also saw Ewan McGregor tied up a lot, doubtless fueling future gigabytes of fantasy fapfiction on the last two remaining LiveJournal accounts in existence.
Just proofed the first issue of SECRET AVENGERS, with art by Jamie McKelvie.
I am mostly off Twitter, not using Google+, in my Zone Of Seclusion and writing and planning and writing and writing and writing.
