This weekend, Darkly Bright Press will be present at the 2022 Inklings Festival in Wichita, Kansas. The Festival will see the release of a new impression of Richard W. Rohlin’s Akboritha, as well as the debut of Joshua Alan Sturgill’s Now A Major Motion Picture, his second poetry collection. Additionally, there will be copies of Mist and Mystery, recovered stories and essays by Arthur Machen.
On Sunday afternoon, I will be giving a short talk, “Publishing for the Moral Imagination,” which will hopefully shed light on why these books should be read.
All three books are scheduled to be available for purchase from the website during the following week.
Now to the newest posts…
Prothesis by Joshua Alan Sturgill
The Pilgrimage, Book II: Part 15 by Phillip Neal Tippin
Our Lost Paradise: The sweetness of the breath of the sea mingles with the sweetness of the breath of the wood; the little stream breaks from the fountain in the hill, and goes on shining and rejoicing on its way, and the rich note of the blackbird swells and thrills out of the green gloom of the thicket. I thought of these things, and then I remembered that it is only given to high masters and initiates to translate the wonder and mystery of the earth into common speech.
