Re: THE WISDOM OF SILENUS (DUNHAMS MANOR PRESS)

My chapbook arrived recently. Jordan Krall did a fantastic job!

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

Yep, mine arrived a couple of days ago. Excited to read it. When will its companion collection be going on sale?

I was told that March was a realistic estimate.

Re: THE WISDOM OF SILENUS (DUNHAMS MANOR PRESS)

The Plutonian was generous enough to conduct an interview with me. I took the liberty of mentioning three TLO (one former) members. There's also a really good interview with Matthew Bartlett as well.

I'm a little confused: I thought that "The Wisdom of Silenus" was a "prelude" to your upcoming collection. This interview suggests it is a story in the collection... and also the name of the collection.

You have every right to be confused. I sincerely apologize. The problem is a result of my not anticipating the release of a chapbook before the actual collection. I should've changed the original title to fit the former's release.

I've contacted the powers that be to help me remedy this problem. I'm actually quite embarrassed.

Re: THE WISDOM OF SILENUS (DUNHAMS MANOR PRESS)

Horribly embarrassed, I hope. Unbearably, even.

So, is the collection going to also include a version of Silenus?

Yes, in addition to fourteen other stories.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

Re: THE WISDOM OF SILENUS (DUNHAMS MANOR PRESS)

Lewis, while I’ve vowed to curb my chapbook purchases, I imagine I’ll be buying your collection when it’s released.

This part from the interview intrigued me:

“The first thing that struck me after finishing the collection, was how classical the structure of the stories were. In terms of style they really could have been written in 1918. They remind me of maybe Le Fanu stories or E. F. Benson works. The Wisdom of Silenus is full of stories of strange night time visitors, bizarre transformations, and somnambulist descents into darkness. But the collection does not share the more moralistic trappings of classic weird horror. I would say that it follows a more post-Ligottian depressive or abysmal viewpoint”
