You may have seen the Instigation Showcase featuring an amazing new horror writer named Joe-La Dowdy, who took it upon herself to blog a creative response to all 365 prompts in Instigation: Creative Prompts on the Dark Side. Well, she’s done it. Written a whole year’s worth of weird fiction and poetry. Read the full news report about this amazing accomplishment over on my blog at gorelets.com to learn more!…
Mastication Publications (est. 1991) is a line of special creative projects independently produced, sold and/or distributed by Michael and Renate Arnzen. Our slogan, “Unusual Ideas to Chew On,” derives from our first book published together — called Chew — and our imprint is an allusion to an oft-quoted line from Sir Francis Bacon. We also like to think that our quirky products are a kind of monstrous offspring, with teeth.
This site is growing, but our output is humble so far. Please see our full catalog for a taste of what to expect from us, and subscribe to our free mailing list so you’ll learn first about our latest, strangest, creations and releases.
And THANK YOU for looking into what we have to offer! — Mike Arnzen
