A cross between Nyctalops, Whispers, and Famous Monsters!
Originally published Halloween 2005, the goal of Chimera is to publish some fiction, literary essays, film criticism and publishing memoirs in a single package.
Contents include: Dave Curtis on James Turner’s Arkham House ; Stuart Galbraith IV on War of the Gargantuas; a 30-page John Stewart portfolio; an artist’s portfolio by German psychedelic artist Helmut Wenske; Stuart David Schiff on the Origins of Whispers; a small artist portfolio from Mark Tansey; plus: Sigmund Freud, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Flannery O’Connor, Patrick McGrath, Henri Fuseli, Max Ernst, and others. Oh yeah, there’s a lot of essays on film noirs Mildred Pierce, Woman in the Dunes, Detour, and Double Idemnity. Did we mention Michael Shea’s “The Autopsy” in a bizarre typographic treatment?
