Masks of Origin: Regression in the Service of Omnipotence – A Review
Each chapter of Masks of Origin—a book of what perhaps can only be called “visionary” essays, by Brian George—reads like an individual novel. Divided into personal and universal experiences, each informs the other. Descriptions of events in childhood and adulthood provide a wormhole into the cosmos.

A Few Notes on “Making Mystery: An Interview with Andrew Antoniou”
Above all, Antoniou’s compressed, theatrical space could perhaps be read as a kind of ritual confrontation, in which the known and unknown, the diurnal and nocturnal, are forced to meet and mix on a stage that allows for no casual avoidance or escape.

Introduction to the Editors: Geoffrey Edwards – Writing that Transgresses

Winter of OriginsSpringing from Origins: #litgeeks Winter Reading Draws to a Close
