Terra Abnorma #1 by jollyjack Terra Abnorma #1 by jollyjack
I've always liked a bit of Lovecraft, so I thought I'd turn my hand at a spot of Weird Fiction ( [link] ). The result is a smattering of stand-alone stories - purely literary. No illustrations - that I've collected into a dinky little pulp-style book.
It's what I refer to as a "bog read" - perfect material to peruse while on the crapper.
I chip away at these kind of tales whenever I'm stuck on a train, so I fully intend on producing more "Terra Abnorma" books in the future.

Should you want a copy, it's now available via Lulu: [link]

Ah, the days when newsstand books were about strange machines that did bizzare, impossible things.

The idea has been run into the ground and butt-fucked by every wannabe artist on our planet, but, go ahead... be the one who breaks through.

This looks so epically awesome. Lovecraft always made great stuff for us to reference and be awed at.

Crap. Shows how much of a pleb I am. I thought it was a reference to Star Trek: First Contact where Lilly (Zefram Cochrane's assistant) first herd about the Borg. "Borg? Sounds Swedish." Although upon further reflection, I'm sure that this line was in reference to Emanuel himself.

Release it as an eBook and I'll buy a copy! Providing you release it for less than $20 :D
I've got nothing against paper or Lulu except that when I get a chance to read I'm usually out walking the dog and that requires reading with one hand and that requires my Nook.
