Joseph Pastula’s eerie new illustrated volume “Little Oren and the Noises” is available today, and you can click the heck over here to get your hands on a copy.

The book is ostensibly a children’s fable, told through gorgeous illustrations, that in reality is a haunting exploration of the desire for solitude even to the point of self-annihilation. It’s exactly the kind of thing we plan to do here at Orford Parish Books: produce sui generis material that doesn’t fit easily into predigested categories like horror or weird or fantasy or what have you.

If “The New Wave of Weird” or the “Weird Renaissance” or any of those terms represent anything, it should be uncategorizable works like this one, meant to unsettle rather than to shock, and to linger in the imagination long after you’ve forgotten the latest vampire prequel.

Good stuff. Exciting times. Buy this book!
