First Post of 2018: General Update Time!

As of last night a most happy event has begun; the fabled return of the legendary “Morbid Stories” is at hand, and once the current slew of new entries is compiled, I’ll be able to mildly re-edit the old ones, then create a two volume set mixing them all together. The original edition of the first Morbid Stories is, format-wise, not up to my modern standards, so it has to be remade anyways.

The first work of the year (which I am plowing through at high speed) is the “New and Complete Fortune Teller” (Also called the “New Dream Book.”) This medium-length work dates to the dawn of the 19th century so that makes it one of the older fortune telling works. The vast bulk of its content is dream interpretation (almost 80 pages of it) followed by some divination by moles, some chartology by playing cards, and a much-shortened, simplistic oracle (called in this work a fortune table.) It fits in completely with the oracle and dream book traditions. In due time I need to create perhaps a book of books cataloging, categorizing, and explaining these intertwined traditions and their various literary cannibalism.

 

I hope to release a second work in January alongside the New Dream Book, but have not yet decided on which. I want to return to some alchemy soon also.
