Book Review: Brainchild – A Collection of Artifacts

Brainchild - Front Cover Image

When Scott Lambridis of Omnibucket contacted me about reviewing their latest release, ‘Brainchild: A Collection of Artifacts’, I was not sure what to expect from a zombie-themed anthology. The idea of zombies, or the undead, has been around for a very long time. A huge part of their modern-day popularity is of course due to the work of filmmaker George Romero, creator of ‘Night of the Living Dead’. I was particularly struck by a quote in the included press release, which I think sums up these underrated villains nicely – “They aren’t afraid of running water, aren’t affected by moonlight or sunlight, or silver bullets. They are rotting corpses, and they’re coming for you. […] They don’t become one with nature – they don’t live forever – they just slowly fall apart, and if given the change, they’ll eat you alive before they do.” Read on for my review. Read »

Another Tale from Stephan Hesh

For those of you who enjoyed the short poem ‘Elder God, Schmelder God‘ by Stephan Hesh, he has sent us a story this time. It is called ‘The Dreams of Jeremy Singleton‘ and is the journal of a man concerned for the sanity of his friend. It can be found within the Selected Tales section of this site.

The Eldritch Gazette on hold for July

The Eldritch Gazette will not be publishing its Monthly Issue this June. It is with a heavy heart that I present this update before you, even though rightly, It is from my other, most time consuming obligations that cause me to do so. We will have the July Issue as a Deluxe edition of the Gazette, containing both the intended June issue’s material, as well as the July’s, plus extra. It is a busy time for me, and I despise the thought of missing a deadline, but to put it simply, time is not very willing.

On a lighter note, I have finally been accepted to my intended University (University of Alaska Anchorage), and am completely ecstatic about it. With a summer already going well, and a base of support much larger than we had intended it to be at this point, it is with out doubt that future holds will be minimal, if at all, in comparison to this one now.
thank you,


New Podcast…

Dodging Reality podcast is live for you to enjoy. Slap this (http://homepage.mac.com/lagwolf/podcasts/DodgingReality1.xml) link into your iTunes and enjoy. We have a piece from one of the guys behind Friends of Micronesia, Tracy Twyman, Laurence, and of course a song anticipating the World Cup from Growing Old Disgracefully.

I would encourage T0D readers to contribute 5 minute pieces (in mp3 form) for future broadcasts.

Update: Dodging Reality continues to gather steam as a weekly (more or less) podcast.
