On this vernal cusp, we are proud to announce the first literary release on Oneiria.
From Ocean, the lyricist for Sirenum Scopuli, Fauna, and others; from the hand behind Port of the Sun and author of Black Hills Cabal, comes the long-awaited epic novel Helios.
A young man raised in a hermetic city sets out on a quest of becoming, tracing the threads of an imagined world outward in concentric circles of loss and discovery. What unfolds is a coming-of-age story of survival and the search for meaning in a world on the verge of collapse. Painstakingly sewn through interlaced narratives and hallucinatory poetics, Helios combines elegiac literary fiction, extravagant erotomyth, and psychologue into a fable which flowers open like Devil’s Blossom. A flavor on the tongue of what never was, yet is always.
Eight years in the making. 1,088 pages of hypnagogic literary animism, in three separate volumes.
Being an account of a citizen of the obscure city at the navel of the world, and the sojourn of a miscreant.
Limited first edition printing of 100 books. Full-color covers + interior illustrations by David V. D’Andrea. Eclipse endpages. Magic.
$100 + shipping (sold at cost, no profit).
To those for whom such expenditure makes purchase burdensome, a .pdf is downloadable HERE
on a donation basis. Donations can be sent via paypal to mirrorflower at gmail dot com.
Greetings, friends and spirits, many new things are in the future present.
Firstly, YULE MMXVI is in one short week of lengthening nights. For those uninitiated, seek out cascadianyule.com for information. Our aesthetic essence is in this liminal moment, and many of our own manifestations will be on exhibit along with creations by our most dear family.
Secondly, we now have copies of the second Ekstasis CD, “The Adversary”, in our artifacts section, along with a few other new additions. An LP edition of this Work is in process.
Thirdly, Ekstasis will be composing and performing a new album in the coming year.
Fourthly, work is being completed on the Eigenlicht full-length album, and we hope for its unveiling midway through MMXVII.
A new world has been opened. All the shades of meaning and feeling pour out, having previously been confined within the lack of existence.
A warm welcome for the returned King, at the the height of the year.
There are a few things in the works for this time of extremes. Though the nights are short now, the winter soon approaches. Be prepared, whilst remembering the glory of the Sun, in the new “Avifauna” long-sleeve shirt. Golden Circle on the front, bindrune on the back, “Fauna” and “Avifauna” on either sleeve. $20. Sizes small to extra extra large. Visit the Artifacts page for ordering information.
In other news, the details for the forthcoming Fauna recording, “Monolith”, are being hammered out. Darkest ambient recorded live in the Satsop nuclear cooling tower, 2009. Coming soon on vinyl and CD.
After ages of eclipse, a new light waxes.
