From their website: “Wild, dark times are rumbling toward us, and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of Saint John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.”~Heinreich Heine
Despite our previous intent, Volume II has slowly progressed into a theme that we could not ignore. For Vol II we ask our contributors to dig deep into their psyche and take hold of those great occurrences that trigger action, reaction or deep awe. Signs and symbols are often on the peripheral but when brought to light, when explored and examined they can elicit great change both on small and large scales. What makes up your triggers? What cues cause your reaction? What represents you or others? How do we manipulate these tools? And in the end, what do they all really mean?
