Early Design Work for "Cozzy's Question"

I am considering designing the next White Noise Press chapbook in the Arts & Crafts style, along the lines of what might have been published in the very early 1900s by Roycroft, Stickley or William Morris, not quite severe enough for Mission, but not too organic for Art Noveau. Here is something I did from some design work by Maurice  Verneuil:

The Thing With Feathers

Emily Dickinson composed her poem “#254” at some point in the mid-1880s. It began:

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul.

Norman Prentiss has written “The Thing With Feathers” inspired in part by the Dickinson poem, but also by the poignant story of two people: a young man possessing a terrible desire, and a young woman equally obsessed with a terrible fear.

“The Thing With Feathers” is a perfect example of the type of horror fiction that has won Prentiss the prestigious Bram Stoker Award two times so far: quiet, observant, written in elegant prose … ultimately, unerringly devastating … and yet…

"The Thing With Feathers" will be published in an edition of 150 numbered copies in the Spring of 2014. Pre-orders will be accepted here beginning March 1st.


Update - 2

We have firm commitments from five authors, with two stories already in hand. We will not be approaching any other authors until these five are published, which will take us well into 2015.

Please note: White Noise Press is forever closed to unsolicited material.

The first new White Noise Press chapbook will be a new short story by Bram Stoker Award winner Norman Prentiss, called "The Thing With Feathers." Watch this site - and our upcoming Facebook page - for ordering announcements.

As already mentioned, everyone who previously reserved specific numbers through White Noise Press will have those numbers reserved and honored, if you so choose. We will be contacting you in the coming weeks for confirmation. Anyone who reserved numbers through another seller will have to contact that seller directly.
