Lost Fables From New Albion: The Radiated Pile Of Ooze

Lost Fables From New Albion by Paul Shapera

This is not the cover, but it’s likely close.

So there will be a 3rd new story to the book, The Radiated Pile Of Ooze (The Prime Of Beatrice Wynn). I did not intend for there to be such a story, i had simply thought that it was a shame there were so few stories about atompunk era lore, oh well too bad i’m taking a nap because i don’t get much sleep this week playing single dad to by two little boys… and 15 minutes later this whole story has just hit me, detail after detail, boom, and so you sigh, drop an F bomb and give up on the whole nap thing.

There has been a great deal of editing. Many stories on the blog were put with no proofreading (i know, i suck) and jeeeeeeeez…. they were a mess to read. So that’s all been cleared up. In addition, sitting down to all of these stories at once has been a great opportunity to tighten up the canon.  Clearly, there are some things written long before certain albums came out, like stuff involving the mafia and the gang of 4 and the albinos, which mentioned tings going in directions The Room Beneath rendered obselete. So i was able this week to go over it all and get all the canon to fit nicely together.

“Hey Paul, where’s my damn Act 3, bech?”

Also, i needed a break from song 4 which, after having made some of it and thrown lyrics onto, resulted in a fit of anguish and despair upon hearing it SUCK. And it can’t suck. I didn’t know how to unsuck it. So i took a week off, which is good because yesterday in the car it finally came to me how to make it work. Possibly. I hope. Every step is a step forward.

In any case, we’re so close to being able to put the book together and get it out that i’m focusing on it exclusively for the moment.  So yes, we have another brand new story which give the entire backstory of the radiated pile of ooze mentioned in the atompunk opera. One of my better efforts, i believe.

Upcoming Book Of New Albion Stories

Which i’m trying to name. Tales from New Albion is the obvious title, but i was going to use that for the album of stories (next after Act 3).Suggestions?

While this book collects stories from the blog, there are two new tales: The Ballad Of Lloyd Allen and Amelia & The Baron. 

I also have to figure out a cover. I’m leaning heavily towards one of the images Sarah De Buck made for the merchandise (which you have checked out, right? The art is GORgeous. Available here or through Bandcamp

The Rabbit Hole Comic Discussion

In which two horrifying geeky comic nerds (ahem… i plead the 5th) discuss comics. Mostly centering around the Image line, but not exclusively.
