Strange Or Die! New Monthly Strange Fiction Event


Is your normal, boring existence getting you down? Is there a lack of ichor and tentacles in your life? Were you disappointed when there wasn’t a secret message from the other side in your morning latte? Are you tired of literary events that don’t, not even once, mention aliens OR reptilians?

Have we got a show for you.

Join us at Volumes Bookcafe on Tuesday, October 18th, for an evening of strange presentations, including: readings, film, music, and always something you would never expect.

This event is free. A dizzying selection of beverages both caffeinated and alcoholic will be available for purchase at the cafe.

In the first incarnation of this monthly showcase we will be featuring:

Music and fiction by:

Anthony is an artist & musician (Sun Splitter, Dead Dragon Mountain, Terran Wretch) based in Chicago born under a fell sign, cursed to walk this earth with an unquenchable thirst and dabbler in low brow prose.
