Hands on the Wheel

Been thinking about Harry Dean Stanton a lot lately.

Read Tyranny of the Muse #5

Tyranny of the Muse #5 is now serializing on Study Group Comics. In this issue, we learn how Frank and Bonnie got together. It's a good one. Lots of teeth get brushed.

Click this awesome cover to read the first 5 pages and check back every Friday for a new one.

I'm very proud of this issue. Dave Chisholm is delivering his best art yet. I hope you dig it. 

If you need to catch up on the series, you can read the first four issues here

"All scenes lead to each other."

"All scenes lead to each other."

I'm reading Steve Erickson's Zeroville for the first time. Not sure what took so long to jump in. But I dig it.

Particularly this bit:

Each scene is in all times, Vikar tells himself, and all times are in each scene. Each shot, each set-up, each sequence is in all times, all times are in each shot, each set-up, each sequence. The scenes of a movie can be shot out of sequence not because it’s more convenient, but because all the scenes of a movie are really happening at the same time. No scene really leads to the next, all scenes lead to each other. No scene is really shot “out of order.” It’s a false concern that a scene must anticipate another that follows, even if it’s not been shot yet, or that a scene must reflect a scene that precedes it, even if it’s not been shot yet, because all scenes anticipate and reflect each other. Scenes reflect what has not yet happened, scenes anticipate what already has happened. Scenes that have not yet happened, have. “Continuity” is one of the myths of film; in film, time is round, like a reel. Fuck, as Dotty would say, continuity.

Reminds me of some of themes I tried to explore in Korsakoff Blight

Korsakoff Blight is out now

Korsakoff Blight is out now

KORSAKOFF BLIGHT, my new novel is now available for Amazon Kindle. It's just $2.99. If you've dug anything that I've written, you'll definitely dig this one. It's weird, funny, sad, dark, weird, and weird. I'm proud of it.

Click the cover to get it. And if you do, please review it. That'll really help.

Synopsis:

What do a troubled writer, a clueless private eye, a dead guy, and a kid who’s perpetually doing battle with a psychotic murderer have in common? Maybe nothing. Maybe everything. In KORSAKOFF BLIGHT, these four characters explore the origins of fiction, storytelling, and creativity in a strange, yet deceptively simple setting that echoes the work of Philip K. Dick, Franz Kafka, Charlie Kaufman, and David Lynch. 

Korsakoff Blight is a writer. So was his father, whose name was also Korsakoff Blight. When the elder Blight dies and leaves his house to his estranged son, Korsakoff Jr. embarks on bizarre journey into the center of the creative soul, all while wrestling with the specter of a lost father.

What does it mean to be an artist? What does it mean to be a husband? What does it mean to be a father? What does it mean to be a creator? What does it mean to created? What does it mean to be anything? Part existential mystery, part surrealistic nightmare, part coming-of-age comedy, KORSAKOFF BLIGHT by author Eddie Wright (Broken Bulbs, Tyranny of the Muse, Regular Show) is a complicated, fast-paced, and unique take on the philosophical quandaries that plague us all.

Pre-order KORSAKOFF BLIGHT, my new book

Hey. Hello. How are you? Okay? Okay. 

So I've announced this before, but then delayed it. And then I announced it again. But then delayed it again. But now, all that delaying business is no more. Because here it is, for real.

KORSAKOFF BLIGHT, my new novella is available to pre-order for Amazon Kindle. It's true. It's finished and coming out on Feb 28, 2017.

Here's the very sharp cover by the fantastic Jamaica Dyer.

And here's the thing about it:

I'm proud of the book. If you're into Broken Bulbs or Tyranny of the Muse, I think you'll enjoy it. So you should head over to Amazon and pre-order Korsakoff Blight for your Kindle device/apps. It'll be out for real on Feb 28. And it'd be really nice if you shared it and told folks about it and things like that too. I'd appreciate it.

Signing at Atlantis Fantasyworld

On Saturday, April 23 from 12-6, me and Jamaica Dyer will be signing at Atlantis Fantasyworld in Santa Cruz, CA.

We'll scribble things on Lake Imago and smile and say hello and all that stuff. 

This is also the comic shop from the movie Lost Boys, so there might be vampires. Or Joel Schumacher. It'll be cool. 

Stop by if you're in the area.
