If you'd relish the chance to rummage through classified museum archives or wander the seaside moors where children once vanished into Celtic burial mounds, these stories are for you. A dose of prickling wonder/terror for the modern skeptic.

Vaughn-James is an unsung god of the graphic medium.  He combines Lovecraft's marrow-gnawing dread with Jodorowsky's vivid grotesquerie and adds a boundless desolation that's all his own.  This world is half
wasteland, half wonderland.

If Richard Yates and Alice Munro fused into one body and took up the position of an oracular coroner from the Twilight Zone, the result might look something like Jamie Quatro. Rarely is a voice so viscerally honest with no hint of brutality. She's one to watch out for.

Shiro was a locavore before it was cool, gathering seaweed and salmon roe from Puget Sound in his rubber wellies.  This book is a testament to what small presses and printed, non-electronic books can give us.  Maps, postcards, old photos:. it's too gorgeous not to fall into.
