Orrin Grey is a skeleton who likes monsters. When asked, he claims to mostly write oubliettes.

[image error]The latest issue of The Dark magazine just went live the other day, and with it, my story “The Hurrah (aka Corpse Scene).” That may not sound much like one of my titles, but it’s definitely one of my stories, and one that I’m pretty proud of. Over on Facebook, Scott Nicolay said, “I don’t know another author who can make a story about a slasher film as simply and elegantly…poignant...

Godzilla by James Stokoe
Rate this book
Clear rating
I was recommended this because I was keen on reading James Stokoe's Aliens: Dead Orbit. Said recommender wasn't wrong. The Half Century War shows what could be done with a story focusing on a human soldier following in the wake of Godzilla, with stro ...more

Godzilla in Hell by James Stokoe
Rate this book
Clear rating
The anthology nature of this essentially wordless (with the exception of one installment) comic makes it bound to be a mixed bag, but for the most part Godzilla in Hell is visually inventive, weirdly meditative, and, of course, a quick read, because ...more

Be Prepared

A charming, funny, earnest book about a phenomenon that I, personally, never got/had to experience as a kid: summer camp, told by one of my favorite artists and comic storytellers, Vera Brosgol.

My only complaint is that, literally every time I look a

Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings by Orrin Grey

"The first time I encountered Orrin Grey’s work, it wasn’t even his fiction! He wrote the introduction to the Valancourt edition of J.B. Priestley’s 1927 novel Benighted, and I was struck then with his knowledge and insight into classic horror. Sin..." Read more of this review »

B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know, Vol. 1 by Mike Mignola
Rate this book
Clear rating
A solid start to the latest B.P.R.D. arc, featuring the return of a familiar face in a last-page reveal that is probably past being a spoiler by now, but that I won't get into anyway. Beyond that, mostly concerns itself with getting the team back tog ...more

Junji Ito's Cat Diary by Junji Ito
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love Junji Ito and I love cats, which is probably why I put off reading this for so long. One of Junji Ito's claims to fame is that he can make just about any random thing creepy as hell, so I wasn't too keen for him to turn his powers onto cats. ( ...more

“He was born of a human-fungal love affair that shook the court of Onddo. His mother was a human, a princess of the court, by the name of ‘Agatha’. His father was the notorious pirate captain, AGARICUS AUGUSTUS — THE PRINCE.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“His father was captured shortly after by the AMANITA PHALLOIDES and executed horribly.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“Like most pure fungi narratives, its interpretation and retelling into human terms is uncertain.”

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth....Such are the autumn people.”
Ray Bradbury

“If the liberal arts do nothing else, they provide engaging metaphors for the thinking they displace.”
