Undefined Boundary - The Journal of Psychick Albion

Temporal Boundary Press have announced pre-orders for Volume 1, Issue 1 of Undefined Boundary: The Journal of Psychick Albion. Citing influences from William Blake to modern antiquarian Julian Cope, the magazine aims to celebrate the visionary, psychedelic and numinous in Britain. 

The ten contributions to the first issue discuss Andrew Sinclair's 'Albion Triptych'; the surreal landscapes of Paul Nash; the TV drama 'Penda's Fen'; the fiction of Susan Cooper; a demonology of old quarries and suburban woods; and much else. 

My own essay, 'In a Remote County', starts from a Robert Aickman story to explore the Nobottle Grove Hundred, a West Northamptonshire domain of decaying manors, sleepy post offices and pubs, old roads with odd names, and peculiar monuments, the haunt of many of my youthful wanderings. 

This is a new project from the publisher of Waiting For You: A Detectorists Zine, and Man is the Animal: A Coil Zine. I'm delighted to be a contributor to the first issue, which is due out around the end of this month.
