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…

Wyrd Daze Lvl2 1,2+3

Wyrd Daze is the multimedia zine of speculative fiction + experimental music, art, and writing. It began life as a one-off print edition in the Summer of 2013 before launching digitally on October 31st. It had a run of 12 issues before being rebooted to Lvl2 in March 2015.

All previous blog posts before this one have now been archived.
Here you will find a showcase and link to Lvl2 Issues 1, 2, +3.

 

The 12 issues of Lvl1 plus a digital copy of the original print zine have now been archived. They are available to $5 tier patrons on the Wyrd Daze Patreon.

Wyrd Daze believes that artists should be paid for their published works.
We would like to create a community of support and enthusiasm for independent artists. The more people support, the more art can be made and appreciated.

Art makes us think more deeply, strive more intently, and feel joy more profoundly. Creativity in all it’s forms brings further meaning to our lives, allows us to explore existence and communicate our explorations to the world.
