2021 wrapped up!
Lots of stories this year. We had:
- Into the Macrocosm: Short Stories of the Dark Cosmic, Bizarre, and Fantastic
- Cultivate: Seed Me Relapse Edition
These things also happened:
- Patreon launched with monthly short stories
- Four Audiobooks: Fire, Pain, & Ruin. Into the Macrocosm. Rave. Cultivate.
- Two novel scores. Frequencies of the Macrocosm and Missing Head Highway
What will happen next year?
Let's find out where the new stories will take us.
Thanks to all the Patrons who joined the launch back in February!
The Macrocosm has expanded with 11 new short stories, taking us into the world of Mental Damnation, Harvesters, and the horrific unknown.
All of this will lead to the second volume of Into the Macrocosm. Here's to more in 2022.

Last patreon short story of 2021! We're going supernatural with it.
Link in bio.
A thriving painter, Dasco, holds a dark secret to his success. His achievement doesn’t come from theories or continual practice. No. It comes from what some call “the gift.” His past returns, giving this muse demoralizing power that he fears he cannot control, putting his life and those he cares for, in danger.

It's been a bit since I've shared what the cat has recently read.
So... here's a cool ARC I am pleased to share as I rarely do/have time.
This is @straybooksltd new Pulp Kings!
It launches tomorrow so check it out.
Pulp Kings Seven: War continues the Pulp Kings zine series of short stories and art by Calgarian publisher Stray Books. Each zine is themed around different topics such as horror, romance, drugs, and Canada. This issue is longer than the previous ones I’ve read and contains four stories by @i.b._____________ , Meghan Rennie, James R.D. Hilton, and James Dickson. The artists are I.B. and Valerie Cates, giving unique mixed media cover art for each story.
All four of these stories offer something different to take away. Through the Pines by I.B. gives a big-picture political outlook within a semi-futuristic world. Special Delivery takes us into an apocalyptic world with little left of humanity. Sailor House portrays the troublesome recovery of a man who went to war. The collection ends with the action-filled sci-fi Love & Reclamation.
In-between the shorts are hilarious propaganda posters of a futuristic world claiming to “Protect Earth” with black and red robotic animal illustrations. They are a fun way to break out of each short story and prepare for something new.
My personal favourite was Special Delivery for the humorous tone and puzzle that the protagonist must solve. If you enjoy zines with themed short stories, the Pulp Kings series is well worth checking out. The mixture of various media makes each issue an immersive reading experience. War continues Stray Books’ well-curated collections.
