The Long Postponed C93 Channelling in London has now been confirmed and affirmed for next year, Saturday October 15, 2022, and is promoted again by our Perfect management and booking Family Mythology-Live along with our groovy promoters and friends at Old Empire. We will again be appearing at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, a couple of weeks before our Hallowe’en Channellings in NYC.
TICKETS FOR LONDON ARE NOW AVAILABLE → HERE
Tickets bought for the original, but postponed, London Channellings are still valid for October 15 2022.
For a long time now we have been working with several Ghosts, some of whom you will have slept with, or may perhaps sleep with. We were thinking of drawing them, and drawing them down, with you in NYC, but we may show some photographs of them in London first. Behind you...
More details soon, on both the London and NYC PickNicks, including the name of our special guests and hosts and other peeks into the pit. There will be lots more to come and shine about these Channellings.
THREE MORE PAINTINGS ADDED TO MY SHOP
I have added 3 more paintings to my website here. They are as follows below. All photographs are taken by Ania Goszczyńska.

A TIME TO WEEP AND A TIME TO LAUGH, A TIME TO MOURN AND A TIME TO DANCE (Qōheleṯ III: 1). The Biblical Hebrew text on the painting is the unpointed text from Qōheleṯ III: 1. Qōheleṯ is often known as ECCLESIASTES. Acrylic, india ink, and metallic paint on found charity-shop canvas. 12 x 16” (30.5 x 40.5cms). £930 plus insured P&P.
AND THE LORD SAID UNTO SATAN, WHENCE COMEST THOU? THEN SATAN ANSWERED THE LORD, AND SAID, FROM GOING TO AND FRO IN THE EARTH, AND FROM WALKING UP AND DOWN IN IT (Job I: 7). It was published in an untitled ChapBook Catalogue which accompanied artwork shown by me, and others, at the L'homme Gris exhibition in Luxembourg at the Casino Luxembourg between 14.11.2020 to 6.6.2021.

C93 OFFICIAL T-SHIRTS FROM ME AND FROM CURE TOUJOURS IN CYRIL’S PICKS & SCRIBBLED LOGONIC SCRAWLS
I am OverMoon to announce the first of a series of C93 t-shirts, screenprinted by my ever-wonderful friends Cyril and Shardae-Rose at Cure Toujours. These are only available from Cure Toujours, and not from us. I have approved these, unlike the 93,000,000 unofficial—usually ghastly, and rarely cool—C93 shirts floating round the planets. But these ones that we are doing together are the best! More designs are to come from me and Cyril, and they are all to be published in small quantities. The label on each t-shirt is signed and numbered by me.
These are available for ore-order now:
Forget-Me-Not Blue → here and Bone-Stone-White → here.
ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BOOKS BY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE AUTHORS—PHYLLIS PAUL’s PULLED DOWN—WITH A FOREWORD BY ME & SIGNED & NUMBERED INSERT
One of the authors I most love—in fact one of those few authors over whom I absolutely obsess—is Phyllis Paul (1903-1973).
An English writer, she died in Hastings, where I have lived for over 15 years. The brief contemporary accounts of her spectral death are some of the most poignant farewells I have ever read.
Her novels, although published by major publishing houses in both the UK and the USA, are now very difficult indeed to find, and sell at very high prices. I have been collecting her first editions for a few years now, both in their UK editions and US editions. Some of her titles have taken me many years to acquire, and I know they are on the Wants Lists of many collectors.
I UTTERLY LOVE PHYLLIS PAUL. Her novels are dark and stark and written with great power and great pain. I know of no other author who writes like she did; her voice is utterly unique. These are disturbing, tangled, books, drowning in shadows and suspicions, in an extraordinarily evocative style.
My lovely friend Frank Kibblewhite, of Sundial Press, is republishing all of her novels. So I was OverMoon to be invited by him to write a brief Preface to Pulled Down, the second in his series of reissues of Phyllis’ astonishing novels. It is already available for preorder here and is out very imminently, late June/early July this year 2021. This first edition of their reissue is a paperback, and is limited to 300 numbered copies. These first 300 hundred copies also include an insert, which prints a proem by me, “All Shall Not Be Well’, and each copy is signed and numbered by me; this proem is not the same as the Foreword I have written for the book.
It is also now possible to purchase from Sundial their paperback reissue of her A Cage For A Nightingale; Sundial’s hardback reissue sold out very quickly several years ago, and is now—like all her books—expensive to obtain. A Cage For A Nightingale is another perfect novel, a tapestry of many darknesses. It can also be bought here and is published, I believe, on June 21 2021; again, this edition is limited to 300 numbered copies.
I recommend her books to anyone and everyone. Although she has left this world, her words haunt it still.
I AM INTERVIEWED ABOUT BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS IN WORMWOOD
I was delighted to be interviewed by the lovely Mark Valentine, a true bibliophile who has recommended many wonderful books to me, from the new issue of the journal Wormwood which can be purchased here. I always find all the articles in Wormwood to be fascinating reads, full of information about remarkable writers whom I very often investigate.
Thank you all, and Love from me and us.
