Wyrd Daze One

Greetings Wyrdians, and welcome to a new era of Wyrd Daze!

WYRD DAZE ONE

 

The cover art for this issue was provided by The Implicit Order – there are more haunting images like the one below to be found inside…

Hookland Guide cover

The Phoenix Guide to Strange England: Hookland by David Southwell returns, and there’s also a Hookland wordsearch, a “Where’s C. L. Nolan” game, and some classic quotes and writing extracts from C. L. Nolan as well.

 

Revenant Winds

I am delighted to present an interview with Aurealis Award-winning fantasy and sci-fi author Mitchell Hogan. His Sorcery Ascendant Sequence is one of my favourite fantasy series, and he took the time to answer my questions in depth. There are some great lesser-known reading recommendations too!

 

Zenith's Edge

An introduction to the Zenith’s Edge multiverse can be found in this issue, including three lost tales that have been cut from the first novel…

 

23a

23 is an special mix by The Ephemeral Man for Wyrd Daze. Harnessing the mighty power of ordered chaos, the number 23 was integral to the mix. Whereas usually all audio clips and tracks are meticulously placed to ensure their optimum position, this mix was enigmatically optimised by placing each track using the number 23. For example: the second track comes in at 2:23 of the first (and the second track, by Coil, is 23:03 minutes long), and the third track come in at 6:23 mark of the second track.

The result is a mix that is as well crafted as any The Ephemeral Man has done, much to his amazement. Hail Eris!

Also worthy of note is spiralling synchronicity with The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu – I use an extract from a recording of A La Fu Live at Burn the Shard 23-11-17 in this mix. There is much to be discovered for those who want to explore the connections. Fnord!

You can download an mp3 of the mix from within Wyrd Daze One or stream below.

All quiet on the Western Front?

Greetings Wyrdians!

It’s been all quiet on the Western front here on the Wyrd Daze blog during an arduous Summer, but plans are afoot! Here’s an update of what’s been going on behind the scenes.

There have been two recent Wyrd Mails:

Wyrd Mail 014 came with the announcement of a forthcoming new era of the Wyrd Daze zine. ‘Wyrd Daze Issue One’ is currently under development, and will feature the return of David Southwell’s The Phoenix Guide to Strange England: Hookland.

I’ve recently put together the “cover” for the new look Phoenix Guide, and here it is:

Wyrd Mail 015 was released just before Halloween and announced the sixth annual Samhain Seance mix by Wyrd Daze’s resident audio wyrdo The Ephemeral Man.

If you haven’t yet subscribed to the Wyrd Daze mailing list (Wyrd Mail) and would like to do so, you can do so HERE. Wyrd Mail is the most direct way to gain news from the world of Wyrd Daze, including links to any content released.

There is also now a Wyrd Daze Facebook Group – a place for fellow Wyrdians to hang out, discover, and enthuse about things from the Wyrd Daze world and beyond – come take a look!

That’s all for now but there will be more anon.

I wish you the wyrdest of dreams…
