A DEAD MONUMENT TO ONCE ANCIENT HOPE

And, thus, if Hope was once Ancient it can now no longer be Ancient: it is now.

I am particularly proud to be published by Ex Occidente Press because — as you can tell just from the evidence below — they have been second to none in recent years in keeping alive fine physical books and the rich tradition of Weird Literature.

My own collection of Ex Occidente Books as of 1 Dec 2013 – ADMTOAH being the top one at the front;

A nameless gravestone stood on display, beside it was a sign, headed “What Is a Monument?” and, beneath that, simple, elegant script avowing that a monument “is a symbol of devotion…a tangible expression of the noblest of all human emotions–LOVE…a monument is built because there was a life, not a death, and with intelligent selection and proper guidance, it should inspire REVERENCE, FAITH and HOPE for the living…it should speak out as a voice from yesterday and today to the ages yet unborn…”
— from ‘Sabbath’s Theater’ by Philip Roth

But it is a question, too, of what is to be written on the monument!

Warm Monument

This book seems to come alive when you first handle it. The production by the publisher – in the author’s opinion – is quite perfect. I know I’m biased, but no other book as a physical object has quite done it for me like this one. I’ll leave the reader to judge its textual contents, however.

AKA Bringing the Dead to Book’ (November 2013): Some seismic riffs on several stories from the rare out-of-print ‘Weirdmonger’ book.
