Bonespin Slipspace (PHP – 002) by Leo X. Robertson (with interior illustrations by Thuy Vi Pham) & a cover by Marc Molino is available for purchase at our store.
In Bonespin Slipspace, all is not what it seems. Rudy and Tammy may have made the biggest mistake of their lives by accepting an invitation to Blackburn’s manor to party with the depraved Manorites. Head-games, ghoulish hallucinations, and disturbing memories lurk around every corner of the psychic and physical labyrinth that is The Manor Experience. Rudy and Tammy may never get out alive, but, in Blackburn’s world, even death may no longer offer the familiar escape. Give Rimbaud an x-ray machine. Tie up and gag Baudelaire. Introduce Poe to bondage. Do you dare enter the realm of Bonespin Slipspace?
Or enter to win Bonespin Slipspace by Leo X. Robertson with illustrations by Thuy Vi Pham and a devastating cover by Marc Molino. The experience of reading it has been called “the closest I’ve come to a transcendent home in literature” by one early reader and “something like David Lynch, Dante, Andre Breton, Stephen King, Georges Bataille and the Marquis de Sade hanging out on acid in a forgotten corner of Videodrome cyberspace where the fairground has come to town” by another.
“G. Arthur Brown is at the forefront of a new generation of writers. One of my favorites.”
–– Brian Keene, best-selling author of The Complex and The Rising
“G. Arthur Brown–already respected as a syntactically immaculate weaver of tales both comical and absurd–now ventures into the darkness to deliver us the strange and unsettling horrors of Governor of the Homeless.”
— Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of Skullcrack City
