Hexus Journal

Hello everyone,

I thought it might be prudent to bring to your attention something that I've been working on with my co-editor.

Hexus is a new journal placed somewhere between the boundaries of experimental fiction and art writing, illustration and fine art, whilst maintaining a focus firmly on horror—positioning itself somewhere between Hammer Horror schlock and The Shock of the New.

The first issue, The New Black, dwells on (and in) the darkness of dissolution—of body, mind, and spirit. Within its pages you’ll find writing and artwork from an international and highly acclaimed line up, all dealing in their own way with the loss of self—be it through mental deliquescence, miasmatic bleeding out, the ever-narrowing strictures of power, the price of fame, spectral malevolence, Dadaistic tumbles to the void, or good old-fashioned violence.

This issue features previously unpublished work by Michael Cisco, Brian Evenson, Gary J Shipley, and M Kitchell, among others, and artwork from Angela Deane, Dawn Arsenaux, and Fran Cutler.

We launched about three months ago, and I've been meaning to get around to posting here, but life has got in the way somewhat. If you'd like to see more of Hexus, you can get a pretty good idea of what we're doing here, at our website. And here are some photos:







Finally, details:
Cover price: £12
Numbered edition of 200.
152 pages.
It is possible to order through the website.

Thank you.

Re: Hexus Journal

Here's a good article by Hexus Press co-founder Thogdin Ripley, "Hexus Press on Horror's Impact on Visual Culture":

https://eyeondesign.aiga.org/hexus-p...isual-culture/

From the article:

"French artist Félix Labisse’s only English monograph comes in a journeyman dust jacket depicting one of his paintings that conceals the real treat—an embossed cloth covered edition emblazoned with an iron fist.

"Labisse’s peculiar brand of psychosexual Surrealism—his shrouded figures, ultra-kitsch midnight blue nudes and insect-harried landscapes—chimes perfectly with a certain kind of European literary fantasism (Dino Buzzati, Roland Topor, Marcel Schwob et al), which has been, and thanks to the efforts of many small presses continues to be, ripe for modern reappraisal.

"Labisse leant many of his works to the cover of the French literary magazine Plexus (from which, partially, Hexus Press originally drew its name), whose slogan, translated as 'the uninhibited magazine', gives one a good idea of its content. The book cover manages to successfully encapsulate Labisse’s sprawling obsessions with sex and control and his tendency towards playfulness (the fist, taken from a series of his paintings using heraldic imagery and armoured figures, is, of course, actually a pendant) into something approaching a workable logo which oozes a luxurious, lusty opulence at the same time as projecting intimidation: the very real gauntlet and the kitsch black leather glove of a thousand on-screen killers."

Re: Hexus Journal

Happily, the second link, under the entry about 'The Black Tower', appears to confirm that another issue of the Hexus Journal is in the offing.
