 George Williams Reading at SCAD

Wed., April 4th • 5-7 pm

George Williams will be reading from Gardens of Earthly Delight at the Savannah College of Art & Design Museum of Art.

"In his first short story collection, Williams (Degenerate) shows a darkly comic sensibility more akin to that of the filmmaking Coen brothers (think Barton Fink) than to more obvious literary influences. His swift, choppy dialog (no quotation marks), quickly shifting scenes, and peculiar interest in archaic religious weaponry (armor, swords, and shields) make for a wild ride from story to story…Recommended to adventurous readers, who will surely enjoy Williams's wildly irreverent inventions."
—Library Journal

 Pre-Order: The Verminomicon

VerminomiconVerminomicon—A Field Guide
to the Vermin of Yuggoth;
Abominations of a Haunted World

is an illustrated text featuring
the sculptures of Anthony DeBartoli
and text from John Edward Lawson

In a tribute to H.P. Lovecraft, Verminomicon showcases the imagination and skill of sculptor Anthony DeBartolis who has spent years crafting more than thirty different species of vermin from Yuggoth. This disturbingly beautiful volume not only explores the multidimensional menace of the fungoid Mi-Go race established in "The Whisperer in Darkness," but expands on Lovecraft's twisted vision—at the reader's peril.

FungiFull-color images of DeBartolis' sculptures are paired with descriptive text from author John Edward Lawson to deliver a field guide of diabolic scope that also details the story of a scientist caught up in the Mi-Go plot against humanity.


Pre-Order Bonus Offer:

If you pre-order the book you are eligible to purchase a one-of-a-kind, sculpted fungi landscape. These fungi were featured in the book and will look similar to, but not exactly the same as, the sculpture displayed here. At approximately 6" diameter and 3.5" tall this is the perfect size for displaying on a desk or coffee table. Quantities are limited.

Two Corporate Haikruel

beneath hot pavement
picketers buried upright
clutching billboard poles

partitions of nails
press upon spooked accountants
squeezing out profits
