Sailor Drunk

Slowly editing past issues of Beta Decay to put full .pdfs up on the site.  Years of typos to correct. I’m truly an idiot.

The only hope for survival lay in time

I don’t usually post topical news, but the passing of Chris Marker deserves a note. There has been much written on his 1963 short film La Jetée and I’m not sure if there’s much I can add except that it stands as one of the most important works on my fictional landscape. Watch his work, read my stories. I hope there is an apparent connection.

Mythical Abyss by M. Akers

Hey, I wrote the description for the new release by electronic artist M. Akers. It’s a 32-minute cassette called Mythical Abyss and you can head to his site to contact him for a copy. Here’s the write-up:

Mythical Abyss opens with a swirling, street-crawling battle hymn to pace your nocturnal footsteps through the blaggard-lined alleyways of a neglected city edge before Shanghaiing you into manning a hulking prison ship to the dead of the ocean. The driving wind of the electrical storm, a pealing foghorn, and the oscillating tones of casimir engines become your only constants on the brutal, rain-swept crossing before a chance encounter with an unmanned deuterium rig signals the next leg of the journey. Crew members slowly disappear as exploration of the lifeless mechanical shell, humming with vast banks of dials and switches, leads you into a solemn labyrinth of howling underground caverns deep below the water. Desperate for light as your torch dies down, you break through a sealed wall to a hidden nerve center that triggers a rush of dopamine into your panicking mind. You watch the esoteric vision plane set into the ancient wall, hoping for safe passage from the delirium, until a blinding, rapturous light takes over and all is calm.

Check out some of his other releases here and here.
