Behold the cover of Postscripts to Darkness Volume 4, illustrated by Dutch artist Tais Teng. We’re madly in love with it, and eager to unveil our latest collection on October 8th. Volume 4 is our largest issue by far, featuring 17 weird tales, 17 weird illustrations, poetry by Helen Marshall, and an interview with Tony Burgess, of Pontypool fame. Read our full list of contributors here.
Our launch coincides with ChiZine’s ongoing Chiaroscuro Reading Series, hosted by Matt Moore. This Chi/Scripts mashup is taking place on Tuesday, October 8th at Maxwell’s Bistro and Club (340 Elgin Street, Ottawa). You’ll find us upstairs with books, authors, illustrators, and other sundry talents, at 8pm. Order up a drink, some hors d’oeuvres, and settle in for a night of readings by Lydia Peever, Kate Heartfield, and a surprise guest.
If you can’t make it to Maxwell’s on the 8th, or need a sneak peek ahead of launch, we’ll also be attending Can-Con in Ottawa, Canada’s spec/fic conference, the weekend of October 4th to 6th. You can find us in the vendor’s room with preview copies of Volume 4 hot off the presses, and earlier issues as well. Our founding editor, Sean Moreland, will be speaking on a variety of panels, too. Hope to see you there.
