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…
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.
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!
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…
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.

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.
Thank you for your time – I hope you enjoy Wyrd Daze One, and I wish you the wyrdest of dreams…
