This is a brief post about upcoming projects at Calhoun Press.
- Deep Dreams of Electric Sheep - It's been in the works for a while, but I'm sorting through submissions and will release a zine of deep dream images. It will probably only be available as a digital download.
- Instant Story - One-page zines that tell stories about instant (Polaroid, Instax mini, etc.) photographs. You will be able to buy the original (with the original photo attached), copies, or digital editions.
Your Son is Not a Science Project - A zine about the current trend of diagnosing very young children with gender identity disorder (transgenderism). You can infer my take on this phenomenon from the title. This is a very emotional issue, so I am working hard to present as much evidence as I can for my side (for all the good that'll do!). To anyone else researching this issue, know that it's not just you who feels like you've entered the Twilight Zone. You probably won't turn and see Rod Serling narrating into an ancient 1950s tv camera--probably.
I plan to convert this zine into Kindle and ePUB formats as well. This will make it easier to download and read the zine on e-readers like the Amazon Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc. The rest of our zines have been image/art intensive so this hasn't really been practical until now. There will also be PDF versions which I think are easier to read on some phones and tablets.
Feel free to leave any questions or comments in the section below.
