Martian Migraine Press is pleased to announce that an electronic edition of R’LYEH SUTRA by reclusive West Coast writer and spoken word artist skawt chonzz will soon be available. Originally limited to a run of 50 physical chapbooks from Martian Migraine Press and never to appear in print again, this very collectible collection of weird poetry, strange prose and Austin Spare-like artwork is sure to please those with a taste for the macabré and surreal.
Recalling Spicer and Burroughs, these are poems that explore the shifting, fractal edge of madness, that question the nature of identity, consciousness and language, and do it all with wry humour spliced with a species of alien sexuality. As the title implies, there is an obviously Lovecraftian occult inspiration to the work: in fact, the original, physical run of the book contained, in the form of an insert, a portion of a large hand-written document received in a brutal channeling session from an ultra-terrestrial entity, which chonzz experienced in the spring of 2011. Each copy is therefore utterly unique, a facet of a whole that perhaps should never be viewed in its entirety, and likely never will. This electronic edition seeks to replicate that reading experience with hidden links to previously unreleased segments of that occult document.
To be released (DRM-free and in multiple formats) in May 2012.
