Description

I wrote, formatted, typeset, printed, hand-bound, and designed the cover art for this ~220 page novel.

It has also been extensively edited by several other sets of eyes, so mistakes should be minimal, but please feel free to message me if you find any!

This is a PHYSICAL item, as the formatting will not allow for clean digital conversion (see photos). It was printed on high quality, acid-free, natural white paper, which gives the pages a satisfying feel and reduces the eye-strain that bright white printer paper can cause. The cover is heavy-weight with a satin finish, similar to mass-produced books.



But you probably don't care as much about all that, so here's the back cover summary:

"A child's shoe; a piercing green eye; a hermit-god, ignorant of his own divinity... and Felix Mitchell, the thread that binds them loosely together as he stumbles through a reality as chaotic as it is ephemeral, his own madness made flesh.

From inexplicable labyrinths to circuses peopled by artisanal freaks, Felix wanders the jumbled landscape of his aberrant mind, prizing apart the layers of his shared and personal realities. Lost in a maze of sublime dreamscapes and abrupt dead ends, Felix must try to reconcile his fracturing sense of reality with his memories of Rose- a mysterious woman tasked with keeping tabs on the itinerant book containing all of existence."



So basically, if you or someone you know is a fan of all things bizarre, of Borges, Lovecraft, Gaiman, Murakami, Danielewski (of 'House of Leaves' fame), the surreal cinema of David Lynch, or The Twilight Zone, this might just be what you're looking for.


This was a labor of love 10 years in the making, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thanks for looking.
