 Deus Mega Therion

& The Divine Mrs. E (Or, the Adventure of the Textual Lacuna)

By Atom Mudman Bezecny

A new double paperback in the style of the author's earlier TAIL OF THE LIZARD KING. DEUS MEGA THERION tells the tale of Jagged Skull, an '80s heavy metal band who runs afoul of a Satanic cult presided over by the sinister Edward Tamaron. Forced to play a string of concerts for the cult, the band members learn more about themselves and the world they live in. THE DIVINE MRS. E (Or, the Adventure of the Textual Lacuna) is the story of an actress who must solve a murder on the set of one of her films. But she is not who she seems to be, and her adventure will bring her face-to-face with fiction, femininity, and the divinity of both. This paperback features two excellent covers by James Bezecny, and has awesome flipbook action, meaning it can be read no matter what side is up. An Odd Tales Productions exclusive!

Fuck Off S.R.

By Katherine Avalon

it’s hard to remember life outside of Continuity Cut-Up. jones and the rood cane took our world and scissored it to ribbons. he stood high on the altar and read aloud from the ALT-BOOK and tore it all down with his words. FUCK OFF S.R. is a cut-up novel about pulp fiction, the power of hope, and the search for truth. it's about dictators and freedom fighters, about the fight in all of us, and about the resistance we carry as we walk on the fragments of a world smashed to bits. inspired by/fighting against the pulp works of Sax Rohmer, FUCK OFF S.R. is a raised fist and an angry scream against those vicious fools who claim there is an alternative to the truth. part of the Odd Tales Resist movement with Odd Tales Productions.

The Brute! A Speculative Study of Tarzan

By Atom Mudman Bezecny

Since 1918, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan has appeared in dozens of films and TV shows, portrayed by a small legion of actors, including Elmo Lincoln, Johnny Weissmuller, Lex Barker, and Mike Henry. Until 1968, Tarzan media shared a rough if confusing continuity between films, which this book seeks to unravel for the first time. Along the way the author also draws connections to the Jungle Jim series, which starred Johnny Weissmuller, and the Bomba the Jungle Boy films, which seemingly continued the adventures of Tarzan’s son Boy. Bezecny dives deep into nearly 60 films as she weaves together over fifty years of history to reveal the life of the Brute...immortal King of the Apes, invincible Lord of the Jungle!

The Playground

By Katherine Avalon,

Atom Mudman Bezecny, & Askarvi Hythlod Ogilvy

Kids growing up in the '90s and early 2000s spent their recesses swapping stories of their favorite video games, movies, and books as they heard them over the burgeoning medium of the Internet. Many of these rumors were a mix of truth, twisted truth, and outright lies. These stories meshed with a tradition of playground ghost stories to create a complex mythos and atmosphere unlike any other. This often-eerie world of half-truths is remembered fondly by many who lived through it. But returning to the past can be a dangerous thing. In some cases, the forces we played with in our childhoods shouldn't be reawoken...

We traveled beyond the limits of all space and time, into worlds of war and lands of dreams dreamt by children.

Come with Flint and I as we transcend physicality and walk the path of heroes.
