Some people might say Orford Parish is the publishing arm of a bizarre cult of two, producing material unwanted or unpublishable by anyone else. WELL, TO THAT, WE SAY “HORSEFEATHERS.”
Just this past week, we received notice that our own Joe Pastula’s “Midnight in the Desert” has been accepted for publication in “Turn To Ash Vol. 2: Open Lines,” and our Tom Breen’s collaboration with Matthew M. Bartlett, “The Long-Lost Parent,” has been accepted for an upcoming issue of STRANGE AEONS Magazine.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, haters!
Hey! As revealed on this week’s Spooklights podcast interview with Jonathan Raab and Matthew M. Bartlett the next Orford Parish Books joint is ready to be disclosed to the world:
Three Moves of Doom: Weird Horror from the Squared Circle will feature the aforementioned Mr. Bartlett, plus Joseph Pastula and Tom Breen each contributing a strange tale set in the wonderful world of professional wrestling. The chapbook will also feature cover art by Pastula, who is busily working to create something fiendishly fine for this project.
I’ve already read the stories, and I can tell you that this is going to be something for everyone, regardless of your level of passion for the art of mat grappling. Street date is currently in time for the Rock and Shock Convention in Worcester in October, but we’ll update when we know more.
Until then, get ready to don the crimson mask with your favorite weirdos!
Hey folks! It’s June, and so we have a fine new addition to our burgeoning line of off-puttingly weird titles. “Old Gory” is a split book with one story from Joseph Pastula and one from Tom Breen, examining the sinister side of that most mundane of symbols: the American flag. Get you some!
Hey get ready to mash that “Buy It Now” button soon, like mid-June soon, because there’s another Orford Parish release ready to drop around then. Hush-hush for now, but it’s by Breen and Pastula and concerns a beloved symbol of freedom. Get all restless until then.
