Coming our way laden with praise from Phillip Pullman (“almost an allegory, almost a dystopian-future warning, partly an elegant study of the nature of storytelling itself”) and Joshua Ferris (“A dystopian distillation of our troubled times, and an allegorical glimpse at a still-grimmer future”), John Lanchester’s latest novel, The Wall, concerns a man called […]

Pentapolis of the Valley’s number one vagabond dancehall is Etica, populated by the alienated, underweb-hackers, punks and clubbers equally. The exterior of Etica is an uncomplicated warehouse, like any in Noex along Wuthering Canal. The area began as an extension of Parkfront, which had been a vacation spot until it was overtaken by the 1899 […]

When I attended Aerynd University in 2051 none of the traditional professional studies interested me, so he settled on graphic fiction. Rather than go home after graduation, I moved into the Langham building of Caentibiry Place, amongst the wounded and wonderful – vagabonds, ecchi, socialists, and anarchists who encouraged playing with sexuality and sexual roles. The precinct of Caentibiry Place is located in the Parkfront Ward of Paeryt, the oldest and best preserved Victorian neighborhoods in The Valley. Paeryt is known for its opulent antique shops and art galleries; it also contains upscale restaurants and luxury hotels. The Ward’s survival of historic neighborhoods is due to canal warehouses, mils and silos, many of which have been renovated for boutiques and restaurants, cafes and shops, creating pockets of Dickens villages along Aerynd Canal and Caentibiry Canal.
I wrote up the first part of the blog in the crazy early hours of the morning sitting in my hotel’s Starbucks while trying to work out what day of which week I was in. I didn’t know at the time that I would be in that very same state of mind for the next […]

pitter patter projections of rain like waterfalls on beige leather seats the silhouette of uncertain lips and silence except for heavy drops, surprises that shatter the white noise of the almost silent showers aiming for that lone fluorescent street light illuminating paved roads and magazine homes adorned with Venetian blinds, one of which is roamed […]
The House of the Rising Sun is a place of transition in music and folklore. It’s a purgatory where travelers, vagabonds, and lost souls cross paths before continuing toward their life after. Absolution is a snapshot of that purgatory, that waiting room, where souls must accept the regrets and disappointments in their lives before they can cross over. Personal struggles are highlighted in duets and solos throughout the piece. Some remorse is too difficult to let go, though, and while many find reprieve from their sins and escape the cycle of self-recrimination, others are doomed to stay and repeat it.
