The Plague in Bergamo
The Plague in Bergamo
BY JENS PETER JACOBSEN (1847-1885)

Old Bergamo lay on the summit of a low mountain, hedged in by walls and gates, and New Bergamo lay at the foot of the mountain, exposed to all winds. One day the plague broke out in the new town and spread at a terrific speed; a multitude of people died and the others fled across the... Read more

Lovecraft’s Lament
Lovecraft’s Lament
L.P. Van Ness

In high summer, after a season of weird composition and the contemplation of vast, interstellar horrors, Lovecraft sought out the soothing and familiar architecture of Providence. It calmed his nervous disposition and the gnawing gestations of an ill-fated heredity. At the apex of... Read more

L.P. Van Ness

- Dedicated to Bob Bloch Most lives terminate in a tomb. Sekhmet’s began there. “You are from the Census then? After all, that is why I let you in. You’ve driven out to see me in well over a foot of January snow. Odd. Very odd. You’re just one step ahead of the taxman this... Read more

A Shimmering Vortex of Snow
A Shimmering Vortex of Snow
L.P. Van Ness

Stepping lightly from the looking glass, Alice did not return alone. Does something else speak through her or are her words her own? December’s double moon prophesized the demise of not only the year but a decade, resolving itself in a duplicitous image of inverted correspondences,... Read more

The Feast of Numbered Days
The Feast of Numbered Days
L.P. Van Ness

Halloween’s withered pumpkin became Thanksgiving pie with the linear procession of lichen thoughts swelling between the masonry of time and resolving itself in the Feast of Numbered Days; for despite the warmth of sunrise, the guling tombstone remained ice cold to the touch.

Disassociation of Fragmented Personality, No. 2
L.P. Van Ness

The cobble was slick with rain, but Johnny managed to elbow his way through the excited crowd. Voluminous in atmosphere, he eyed the prize closely: covers, spine, thread, pages and words. It was a book much like others before it but for the happenstance that it had fallen from out-of-the-blue.... Read more

The Runaway Prairie
The Runaway Prairie
L.P. Van Ness

Beyond the parking lot of the factory, there was a treeless field covered with grass, what is called a Prairie in the Midwest. Surrounded by mundane blacktop streets and brick bungalows, this wild patch of land became an oasis of the Imagination for a young boy, a foreboding jungle, where... Read more

It Wasn’t Quite Halloween
It Wasn’t Quite Halloween
L.P. Van Ness

While visiting the haunted house, one of the teenage ghouls stumbled forward from the shadows and inadvertently knocked off Mother’s wig. It was easily reappointed. Unfortunately, seven year old Chance thought it was her head that had been severed, so he screamed and ran blindly back outside... Read more

J.Z. Herrenberg - No Community Without Enemies

(written in 1994, published in 2002, translated from the Dutch by the author) Man in shopping trolley. Why should that particular image be flailing again before my mind's eye... A child in a shopping trolley is sufficiently well-known – in front, little hands on the bar between... Read more

"Dating the Android" by Quentin Crisp
"Dating the Android" by Quentin Crisp

A VAST, dark, sweeping downpour, and I sat at the side of a thoroughfare opening itself directly to the black, roiling sky. I watched the tiny tremoring pulse in the back of my hand in remote fascination and exhaled smoke from my nose. I had sat like that for some hours. The fat beads of... Read more

"Restaurant" by Harlan Wilson
"Restaurant" by Harlan Wilson

I ordered a ground beef sandwich with mozzarella cheese, pickles, onions and psychedelic mushrooms. The waiter was a thin, olive-skinned man with a platinum handlebar moustache. After scribbling down my order, he bowed and goose-stepped away, his long rubbery legs flying out in front of him... Read more

"The Eternally Descending Blade" by John B. Ford

THERE IS no escape from a mind that can slice deep inside your own. From the time that I was a young child I have been cursed by such a mind; it is an eternal curse which I very quickly realised would continue to plague my soul when this pathetic body of mine eventually fell cold. For... Read more
