Posting has been, and will be light. I have a job now and much of my spare time is taken up with the project I am doing with Scrap tentativly titled 'Velvet Horizons (subject to change).
Velvet Horizons is a statless book of monsters which, hopefully, will make you feel now the same way you felt when you opened the Fiend Folio at the age of twelve. There are meant to be 100 monsters in there, drawn by Scrap, written by me, edited by Scrap and all composed in a radical zinelike form carefully composed by Scrap to make it look like a bunch of lunatics made it secretly in a basement, which should make the whole thing feel like an icepick of underculture going right in your eye.
It's going to be an A4 book with at least 100 pages, so reasonably chunky, and it should feel rather strange to hold in your hands.
The aim here, I think, should be to make a book so strange and other that even Zak would feel nervous reading it on the bus.
Anyway, time not taken up with work is now spent thinking of MORE FUCKING MONSTERS and if not that then maybe wondering about SAVAGES and if not that then reading and trying not to think about anything.
As a kind of place holder, here is a (subject to change) list of the monsters on which the basic ideas have been generally worked out. There are 79 so far.
ANTS OF NEUTRALITY, THE
BLATHERING BIRD, THE
BOA CONSTRUCTOR (BRUNNEOUS, XANTHIC, PAVONATED AND GRISEOUS)
ICE AGE EYE
NAVIGATORS OF NOTHING
SHAMEFUL BEAST, THE
