Emerging From Darkness is the first issue of the AaNX Newspaper. The issue contains three connected stories - Caught in Wax, Reel Number Seven, and The Chill Inside - by Angeline B. Adams and Remco van Straten.

All three stories take place in a turn of the last century, alternate history Earth, which is a bit behind our own timeline in technology but very attuned to the spirit plane, and reeling from catastrophe. "The gas lamps flicker, and so does the silver screen. The authors invite you to a seance, a DIY punk show, and a screening of Wuthering Heights, as you've never seen it before..."

The Wild Hunt occurs in European folklore and typically involves a ghostly or supernatural group of hunters passing in wild pursuit. The hunters may be elves, or fairies, or the dead, and the leader of the hunt is often a named figure associated with Odin, but may variously be a historical, legendary, or biblical figure, or an unidentified lost soul or spirit either male or female.

Seeing the Wild Hunt was thought to presage some catastrophe such as war or plague, or, at best, the death of the one who witnessed it. People encountering the Hunt might also be abducted to the underworld or the fairy kingdom. In some instances, it was also believed that people's spirits could be pulled away during their sleep to join the cavalcade.

Collected here are all new stories of the Wild Hunt incorporating its diverse mythology and drama.

A new fantasy novella by Jamie Lackey

The Forest God, incarnated into the body of hare, ready to die and live again.

Only together, can they set things right.

At turning points, we face decisions. Here, three of the Castle's immortals - Lightning, Simoon and Comet - relate pivotal moments of their lives. A deadly chariot race forces Lightning to choose between his lover and his family; Simoon must decide what value he places on friendship, and Jant faces the consequence of his decisions to betray others. As a bonus, three short tales of the immortals' deeds are extracted from the Histories written by Simoon. But which are myth, and which reality?

Reviewed in the April 2011 Pittsburgh Magazine:

"Todd Sanders is perhaps best known for his translations of the French Surrealist poet Robert Desnos; however, in Species of Night, he allows his own muse to roam free. A small book of quiet yearning, Species of Night descends upon the reader like a velvet fog. Lines such as these from the poem 'Umbra' nearly sigh in the reader's ear: 'I had you once. Among the birds, among the blue / glass. I felt your shade there upon my hand.' A sad dreaminess is pervasive; lovely poems of emotional depth appear on every page."

Calixto
by Robert Desnos, translated by Todd Sanders

catalog number: aan04.1

$19.95 + $6.50s/h (US Orders) or $23.50s/h (Foreign Orders)

64 pgs. hardcover. limited edition of 200 copies

In original French with English translations.

from the back cover ...
Robert Desnos' 1943 poem Calixto, companion to the 1944 collection Contrée, was published in a complete edition by Gallimard in 1962. Calixto is a poem of resistance, epic in scale, combining a narrative language of classicism and Greek mythology with the argot of 1940's Paris. In a world peopled with prostitutes and explorers, victims and murders, Desnos fuses together a poetic elegy, a cry in the darkness against evil unleashed on the world.

Also appearing in this volume is Notes Calixto, notes and commentary written by Desnos in the margins of Calixto during its creation.


"Inspiring in this skillful English translation by Todd Sanders as it is in the original French, Calixto conveys Desnos's vivid portrayal of a changeable figure eager to encourage human beings to cling to their lives and their humanity in the face of tremendous odds."
- Katharine Conley - Author of The Marvelous in Everyday Life: Robert Desnos, Surrealism, and French Culture

Christened Youki, Japanese for 'pink snow', Lucie Badoul lived in Montparnasse in the 1920's and 30's where she was a model for, and later wife of, the Japanese painter Tsuguharu Foujita.

On October 31, 1931, after a long and stormy relationship with Youki, Foujita left for Brazil, leaving her the following farewell note - 'I don't have any more strength to fight in Paris .... Let me have the simple life which I dream of .... You now have a faithful friend, Robert .... who has taken my place and for him you are the dearest person in the world.'

The poems in this volume have been taken from two collections that Desnos wrote for Youki: The Secret Book for Youki composed in November of 1932, and selections from 1930 Youki Poèsie, completed in 1934.

These are love poems for Youki as well as poems about what it means to love.

Robert Desnos (1900-1945) was one of the Surrealist movement's leading poets, praised by Andre Breton for playing a "necessary, unforgettable role." Combining humor and pathos, dreams and reality, Desnos work is typified by its verbal techniques and independent spirit. In 1930 he broke from the Surrealists and for a decade wrote motion picture and radio scripts, including the highly successful Complainte de Fantomas (1933). Arrested for his activity in the French Resistance, he was eventually deported to Czechoslovakia and died of typhus shortly after his camp was liberated.
