Vrai Talks: Cthulhusattva Interview

Hey there, readers! You may remember that a few months back I published a story in the anthology Cthulhusattva: Tales of the Black Gnosis.  Well, as part of the promotion for that anthology, I also sat down for a brief interview with its editor (and the founder of Martian Migraine Press), Scott Jones.

THRILL IN AMAZEMENT as my brain is so fried I can no longer remember important details of the thing I wrote. GASP IN AWE as I make it less than five minutes to the first anime reference. SWOON at the handsome quality of my nasally Midwesterner’s voice.

And keep your ears tuned – this might not be the last time you see audio content popping up around these parts.

  1. “GASP IN AWE as I make it less than five minutes to the first anime reference.” By my count you held out more than eight minutes, actually; I guess you’re made of sterner stuff than you think. But anyway, the reason I’m commenting: Carlos Castaneda. What a magnificent fraud, and a name to conjure with in the 1970s — I confess to reading at least three of his books. If you have the time I recommend checking out at least “The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge”. Castaneda is a master at stringing the reader along and teasing them with possible revelations. I’m not a Lovecraft fan, but my understanding is that this is a very Lovecraftian thing to do–maybe that’s one reason your host brought his name up?

    • In the broadest sense, totally. Lovecraft hardly invented the unreliable narrator (“An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” was 1890, just for starters), but he definitely pioneered the…malignant unreliable narrator, I suppose? The whole SECRETLY MAAAAAAD sort of thing. So a lot of his stories are geared around that. Well, that and disguising how bad he was at describing things by saying all these other worldly terrors were simply TOO HORRIBLE AND INCOMPREHENSIBLE TO THE MIND, NO REALLY.
      …my relationship to ol’ racist uncle Howie is a complex one.
