All pricing is in Canadian currency. (NOTE: if you want to purchase more than one book, you will need to re-click the link for each additional purchase, as the Paypal options for shipping charges by ‘weight/percentage of purchase order amount’ were found to be just too baroque and non-Euclidean for our weakened-by-pulp-fiction minds. Sorry.)

If you’re American (brave! free! delightfully weird!) you can order WTSAR HERE (15.99 + 8.00CAD shipping & handling)

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!
