how many times? by rhys hughes

Graças a Rhys Hughes descobri a corrente literária Oulipo (não confundir com Olimpo). Elaborei, até, alguns textos utilizando os seus constrangimentos literários.

Rhys Hughes, que sempre revelou um interesse nos constrangimentos literários permitidos pelo Oulipo, tendo produzido algumas peças aqui e ali, oferece agora, não apenas um livro completo de brincadeiras, desafios, puzzles, mas constrangimentos originais – duplo desafio. 

This book:

  • improves the quality of your life;
  • gives you better mood;
  • is creamy and smooth;

Rhys Hughes pode não ser real, mas este livro é-o certamente! Urra!

Parabéns à Eibonvale Press pela ousadia em publicar esta obra.

People asking how Rudolph’s red nose can possibly be bright enough to guide Santa through the night. I always assumed it was there for the benefit of other aircraft to help avoid collisions. Also that it’s a transponder that can be used with the help of ground control to increase the safety margin during foggy conditions.

I went to see the doctor today. He took my pulse and my pulse said, “Get lost, fool!” Then he took my blood pressure and my blood pressure said, “This is bloody stupid!” Then he shone a light into my eyes and my eyes said, “Too bright, you idiot!” So I asked him, “What’s the verdict, doc?” “You seem to be in rude health,” he replied.

fae visions of the mediterranean

The Mediterranean is a liquid road connecting places and people. Ships, words and stories travel on its waves. Sometimes fantastic creatures, hidden in the hold. The Mediterranean speaks many languages; some of them we don’t recognize anymore. They are ancient, but never really dead. This speculative fiction anthology collects twenty-four pieces of fiction and poetry, new and old, and some things that are in between, because we don’t believe in boundaries. It gathers Mediterranean stories with a horror twist and horror stories with a Mediterranean flavour—caring sea monsters, still dripping and briny; brave mermaids, merciless ghosts and bizarre creatures—in nine different languages and many different styles.

Future Fire

Following the request made by Rhys Hughes to draw a Minotaur there is my nonsense version.

the messiah of the mannequins

The Messiah of the Mannequins is the 605th story by Rhys Hughes, of The 1,000 Story Cycle, written in 2011. The story was published in the anthology This Hermetic Legislature: A Homage to Bruno Schulz (2012) by Ex Occidente Press.

I wasn’t feeling the very best today so when I got the chance to read a new story by Rhys Hughes who I’ve always adored I hope to say at last carpe diem.

I closed my ears to the outside noises and then I began the reading… The Messiah of the Mannequins is another wild, non-sense, fantastic, exhilarating tale from Rhys Hughes, a man capable of never fails to fascinate me. The story maybe isn’t real, but it sure is powerful…

The Messiah of the Mannequins is a story that people with an imagination will enjoy, but if you lost your capacity of dreaming you still can give it a try.
