Our author S R Jones has finalized the Table of Contents for his upcoming non-fiction work, When The Stars Are Right: Towards An Authentic R’lyehian Spirituality, and so this morning we present it to you, our discerning and classy Migraineers, in all its perplexing and evocative tease. With a Foreword by Jordan Stratford and interior illos by Michael Lee Macdonald, this book (which we’re producing in our usual e-formats AND the hoary old medium of *gasp* PRINT!) will offer to the reader an interpretation of Lovecraft’s Mythos not yet seen. Serious gnostic text? Crank fundamentalist screed? Psychedelic auto-ethnography? YOU DECIDE. Whatever it is, we hope and plan to have it ready by Christmas time, so you can get your festival on right!
Please pepper us with questions and/or concerns in the comments, and if you’d like to tweet about When The Stars Are Right we encourage you to use the hashtag #keepinitrlyeh And, as long as you’re on Twitter, follow @Cthulhusattva, where Jones is posting excerpts from the work as it is completed.

Sure, he’s got a voice like the fragrant lubricating honey of alien bees poured over the red-hot workings of some kinda sexy murder-machine. And yeah, his spoken weirdness is pulled from the top drawer of the Weird Bureau and then rubbed all over his thoroughly unusual genitals before delivery to a gleeful audience, as Nature intended. Plus, the guy looks great in a suit.
But were you aware that SKAWT CHONZZ (Plutonian Crime Lord and the only anti-poet to be treading the stage at the Verses Festival / Canadian Individual Poetry Slam this week in Vancouver) is also altruistic as fuck? IT’S TRUE.
Enjoy some grainy video of skawt in his natural habitat below, and then head on over to >> this link << to pick up a FREE COPY of his genuinely disturbing occult-themed “poetry” chapbook R’LYEH SUTRA (now in electronic form), from Martian Migraine Press. Yes, if you’re attending any of the slam bouts at the Verses Festival this week, you’ll no doubt be laying down some cash for glorified folded and stapled 8.5×11″ copy paper but only skawt chonzz gives away precious, highly refined electrons that work on any computing device for free!
That’s just the kind of crime lord he is. Enjoy!
Just kidding. Our hands are actually somewhat tied by Amazonian policies, such as they are. So, if you’d like skawt chonnz‘s R’LYEH SUTRA for your Kindle or Kindle enabled device, that’s swell, but the lovely beast that is Amazon requires that you part with some shekels for the privilege.
On the other tentacle, if you’re quite happy to read your electronical book-type thingies in EPUB or PDF format, then prepare to feel your wallet remain at its current weight! Download links are below.
MOBI version (good for the ubiquitous Kindle e-reader and Kindle enabled devices and at $1.99, an outrageous steal of a deal!)
EPUB version (good for Kobo, Nook & Sony e-readers)
PDF version (good for regular ‘puters with Adobe Reader)
skawt chonzz is bringing his peculiar brand of Plutonian spoken-weird to Vancouver’s Verses Festival and the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam only from April 10 through 12, but you can load up on the lyrical strangeness of his R’LYEH SUTRA for the rest of the week. This free (and cheap-as-free!) offer lasts until Sunday April 14. And if you like skawt, please check out the other great authors here at Martian Migraine Press!
