twisthorn bellow, edition by gloomy seahorse press

26 Mai

Some books are like blind dates – you don’t know what you will get. With “Twisthorn Bellow” by Rhys Hughes you will get no only a book, but also:

  1. a heart-pumping machine
  2. a object to kill spiders
  3. a fashion accessory – you will walk with style and you will show that you’re really intelligent even if it you are not: two in one
  4. an aphrodisiac – you will be the most desired to open the jar that no one else can open
  5. a good-looking object to decorate the coffee table

You must not forget that this book don’t need batteries to work and don’t have an expiration date.
Furthermore this book don’t try to solve the meaning of life or try to explain why the relationships are confusing? No. With this one you will get pure dynamite.


The most important: this book makes a great gift to you.

This new edition has some special characteristics:

#1 – The color of the font used in the title and in the Rhys Hughes name is red. Thus not only the title stands out from the rest of the cover but will also prove to be an omen of one of the peculiarities of the golem Twisthorn Bellow.

#2 – On the contents page we now have a drawing of Twisthorn Bellow and of his favorite weapon, Kpinga.

#3 – Both editions are dedicated to Jessica Poper and Philip José Farmer. The new edition have one more quote by Friedrich Nietzsche and the warning text is signed by the author; in the previous edition this doesn’t occur.

#4 – In the edition of 2010 there is the word Finis. The new edition don’t have the word Finis; instead it displays a drawing of the Kpinga.

#5 – In the new edition there is a list and a explanation of the monsters that fight Twisthorn Bellow. The back cover displays some real photos of the monsters.

#6 – In the new edition the bulleted lists are made with a smile 🙂

Exemplo de como responder com perguntas ou irritar exponencialmente uma pessoa.
Esta conversa aconteceu hoje de manhã entre a minha modesta pessoa e um palerma metido à burro.

– Estás chateado comigo Big?
– Fizeste ou disseste alguma coisa que me faça estar chateado contigo?
– Que eu saiba não.
– Então porque haveria de estar chateado contigo?
– Por nada. Foda-se que tu às vezes és parvo. Só complicas. Raios te partam.
– Já reparas-te que agora é que tenho motivos para estar aborrecido contigo?
– Vai mas é à merda.
– À merda vou, mas espera e… (atirei-lhe um murro directo aos dentes).

A dita pessoa caiu – bati com os pés no chão a marcar território – e fugiu cambaleante (o gajo é doido, deve ter pensado). E eu? Eu ganhei o dia. Reputação a 100%!

BLACK SCAT BOOKS is the only concern of its kind in America. It was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012 by artists Norman Conquest and Farewell Debut.

We are a small, independent, not-for-profit press dedicated to publishing books of sublime art & literature—eccentric visuals & obscure texts, absurdist fiction, experimental visions, surrealism, ancient erotica, pataphysics, and works in translation. Our Absurdist Texts & Documents series features limited editions designed to disrupt, disorient, and smash boundaries—academic, cultural, literary, and philosophical.

We also publish an international magazine of the arts, Black Scat Review, which appears irregularly in both print and digital editions.

To reduce our carbon footprint, we employ several quality Print-On-Demand (POD) services. We believe POD represents the future of publishing in America. It expands the selection of books and increases the potential audience beyond the walls of the corporate monopoly.

Authors receive payment in copies only. Profits from sales are recycled to help fund future publications.

We hope you’ll support our efforts by purchasing Black Scat Books.

Unbelievable. I have a story accepted for the Issue #8: “Seduction” of the magazine Black Scat Review.

The Were Traveler is an online webzine dedicated to really short fiction.
When I say really short fiction, I mean REALLY short.
Drabbles and micro-fic mostly, with the occasional flash piece or short story (up to 2ooo words) thrown in whenever I have time to read longer pieces.
What I’m looking for here is speculative fiction. It’s what I write, it’s what I enjoy reading. Fantasy, science fiction, horror and any combination of the three have a good chance of getting published here.

Tive aqui publicado o meu primeiro drabble.
