    because my OCD wont let it go, is the British Horrible said with a silent H? Hense the "an horrible" instead of "a horrible?"


    Methinks it's a typo. Unless the blurb is meant to be read with a cockney accent...

    "an 'orrible"

    Heh. No. Placing "an" before a word beginning in a sounded "h" is a vintage grammatical practise. Aside from a few holdovers ("an historical..", for instance), the practise had pretty much died out by 1925 or so. In the time period of AETHERIC, it would still be in use. Hence its appearance here.

    Cool. Consider me educated. By the way, did you write the synopsis yourself? I seem to remember reading an article where you said you often wrote your own ads etc.

    Just gave this one a plug over on my blog. Used the cover, if that's okay...

    And avatar gets a little bit more of my paycheck. After all, there's no such thing as to much Mr Noodles. (a low cheer rises up from my tape worm)

    Hmm...

    Filled to the brim with Victoriana? Check.

    Crazy-Ass Science? Check.

    Science Bastards? Check.

    Archaic diction? Check.

    Men with muttonchops? One hopes.

    Alternate History? Check.

    About England? Check.

    Warren Ellis? Check.

    Yeah, this is pretty much ultraporn for me.

    Just one question: cash or credit?

    :)

    Regular reader of your Apparat line and new to the forum.
    Unbearably excited about Aetheric Mechanics.
    Relished Grecy.
    Etc.

    Any idea when it will ship? It was supposed to come out in July, if I remember well.

    Any chance for us to read it soon?

    Awaiting with a sense of pleasant anticipation, as I would a good dinner.

    (Crecy was a good project in a good format--something I was glad to pick up and read--but it's not really my favored food in terms of subject matter and historical period. This, on the other hand, looks as though it were specifically designed to cater to my whims and exploit my fascinations. Er. Thanks, Warren.)

    I really like the one-shot, non-locked-in format for publishing comics stories--moving toward the same sort of flexibility and range that prose publishing offers, for both small and large stories. Fun Home was a great example of that sort of publishing and marketing working for a larger book (albeit one put out by a mainstream publisher and with nonfiction subject matter), and other indie and semi-autobio comics have done very well at it (Same Difference springs to mind, though it has "extras"--other stories included). I hope to see more of the smaller, weirder stuff, too.

    This looks like everything retailers have been telling me they don't want to see in a comic.

    Except that it's written by Warren Ellis. That changes everything.

    You know, I only remembered about it because of that sollicitation :

    WARREN ELLIS' FRANKENSTEIN'S WOMB GN

    By Warren Ellis and Marek Oleksicki.

    The newest addition to Warren Ellis' Apparat line of original graphic novels has arrived! 1816 was called "The Year Without A Summer." In the weird darkness of that July's volcanic winter, Mary Wollestonecraft Godwin began writing Frankenstein on the shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. But that is not where Frankenstein began. It began a few months earlier when, en route through Germany to Switzerland, Mary, her future husband Percy Shelley, and her stepsister Clair Clairmont approached a strange castle. Castle Frankenstein, some one hundred years earlier, had been home to Johann Conrad Dippel, whose experiments included the independent invention of nitroglycerin, a distillation of the elixir of life -- and the transfer of a live soul into an awful accretion of human body parts. Mary never spoke of having entered the real Castle Frankenstein, stark on its hilltop south of Darmstadt. But she did. And she was never the same again -- because something was haunting that tower, and Mary met it there. Fear, death and alchemy -- the modern age is created here, in lost moments in a ruined castle on a day never recorded. <strong>Following up the huge successes of Crecy and Aetheric Mechanics</strong>, Ellis turns his spark of mad genius to bring us a fantastical tale in this all new original graphic novel illustrated in atmospheric perfection by newcomer Marek Oleksicki.

    48 pages, black and white, $6.99.
