Fall Winter 2013 Catalog

 

Chicago, IL, February 5, 2013.  As of June 2013 Chicago-based publisher Curbside Splendor will be distributed by Minneapolis-based Consortium Books Distribution & Sales, a leading distributor of independent publishers. This marks an exciting milestone for Curbside Splendor, whose growing catalog, including titles such as MAY WE SHED THESE HUMAN BODIES by Amber Sparks and Chicago Stories: 40 Dramatic Fictions by Michael Czyzniejewski, has received national acclaim.   

“Curbside started out as a hobby, an artistic venture, but soon into it I realized a passion for making books and recruited like-minded individuals to join me,” says Victor David Giron, President, Curbside Splendor. “Now with a strong and visionary partner in Consortium, I feel like we are equipped to take Curbside to a new level and cement ourselves as leaders in contemporary independent publishing.” 

Curbside Splendor is also pleased to announce its Fall/Winter 2013 catalog which will be the first with Consortium.

 
Asylum Doors - 14

By Chris Prunckle

What happens when a psychic who can’t control her powers gets institutionalized?

Bryce Dekker is a young woman that has suddenly been given extraordinary power, a psychic link to her surroundings. In her desire to help others, she becomes entangled in a murder case where her knowledge of specifics has made her the #1 suspect.

Now mandated to undergo observation at Werthem Glen Sanitarium, Bryce is at the mercy of her fellow patients. Surrounded by madness and unable to control her power, she is having a hard time separating her thoughts from the insanity around her.

Bryce has found only one way to keep track of reality, and that’s by keeping a record of the visions and voices in her head. She has become the vessel for those around her, telling the stories of their illness. She is the biographer of their insanity. Their stories have become hers, and Bryce’s only hope is that by embracing the madness, she finds her sanity.

Asylum Doors is a serial comic we'll run every Wednesday.  See the previous installment here.  Stay next week's installment here.

 

Chris Prunckle is a graphic designer, illustrator and comic book artist banished to the suburbs of Chicago. Though an advertising industry minion by day, he slaves his nights away creating a mad little world.  He’s previously worked on the comics Fisted, Bonesetter, and The Scarab.  Follow him at @midjipress.

A Texas Love Poem

By Gabriel Hurier

Its all happening and not happening-
My broken toe is still broken,
The unused brushes on the desk sleep in a bundle,
The wrench, blades, tape and paper idle,
My dictionary, dirty from travel, closed
As the book of blue faces prattles on now and ever.

But happening- we are happening yes?
Cancer eats away friends and relatives to death-
These individuals worth more in character
Than the art I seek to make or have made
And more on that later because there must be more...

Here I am, happening and not-
On the verge of tears for some primal scream
To dance away the shakes and restlessness and dreams
While a nest of strangers bowls in this fucking room.
I have wine for you here, my darling,
A thousand miles away from your growing womb.

 

 

Gabriel Hurier is a wandering artist and poet.  He works for the studio of the late great artist Sol Lewitt where he travels the world maintaining the artist's legacy.
