Stories From the Borderland, my collaborative project with Scott Nicolay is back! We cover even more great Weird stories that for varying reasons lack the currency they deserve. Scott’s short essays are meticulously researched with the help of Anya Martin  and each is accompanied by an illustration of a “creature” by Bukowski. This zine will include the next 5 entries of Stories From the Borderland including the Margaret St. Clair entry (that was previously only available through Unwinnable) AND our entry on The Thing!:

“We conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. We hatch the eggs of vipers and spin a spider’s web. Our works are works of madness, and the act of violence is in our hands.”

Welcome to the Seventh Church Ministries.
We are a small scale publishing house dedicated to bringing the most monstrous horrors of literature into the glaring light. Mostly known for the Illustro Obscurum series, we’ve been expanding to including new artists and source material. Our books are hand assembled and painstakingly designed to meet our aesthetic standards.

Our mission is to focus on illustration and the visuals of the horror stories we love and, in doing so, expose you to the monsters that no longer lurk in the dark.
