Passing this on from Mick Mercer – if you’ve been considering adding a shelf of Mercer to the extensive library wing of your mansions, now is the time.
Please share this info around if you can. The following books are being discontinued at the end of this month, so this is a final chance to obtain what will be seriously limited editions! I am reducing the number of formats I offer to streamline the sections on my website. Written books may sometimes come out in A4 or US Letter formats but photo books will mainly be a standard ‘Royal’ size from now on. I won’t be doing many gloss ones either as people prefer these matt ones. So the following vanish completely within three weeks. The 20% off offer at Lulu for UK customers is valid through Nov 11 so you might wish to take advantage of that. (Just enter EARLYSHOPPERUK305 code at checkout.)

This has been a long time coming, verily a monumental undertaking that brings a whole new set of perspectives on the stories we in which we live. Thought provoking writing and great art is lovingly gathered and edited by James Curcio.
(And my drawings are found throughout…)
Weaponized is proud to announce that ‘The Immanence of Myth’ is published today.
The book will begin to show as in stock with retailers in the coming weeks.
Due to the titles popularity, pre-orders of the book should arrive with our customers in the next two to three weeks as we work through our back orders.
The Immanence of Myth is available from Amazon and all major retailers.
Where can we begin a genuine discussion of immanence in myth? Do we engage the tools of analysis on the dissection table of academia? Or perhaps it is best not dealt with in sterile light, being rather an arcane synthesis, a syncretism.
If myth is something long dead, a corpse exhumed with philosophical disinterest, then please consider this work an attempt at necromancy. But if myth is considered something dangerous; full of falsities, dead ends and mazes luring the unwary into a fugue of superstition, then consider it a whispered pass-phrase into another world: the world beyond the wallpaper. A world that recognizes the real is in the effect rendered, rather than in the thing symbolized. Conflicting fictions drive Holy wars. How is a history born of spilled blood unreal? How is it meaningless, even if all the Gods are just shadows cast on the wall by finger-puppets? Myth is not dead, nor is it false; it is living, and misunderstood.
This anthology is a book. For the philosophers Deleuze and Guattari, a book is an assemblage:
“Comparative rates of flow on these lines produce phenomena of relative slowness and viscosity, or, on the contrary, of acceleration and rupture. All this, lines and measurable speeds, constitutes an assemblage. A book is an assemblage of this kind, and as such is unattributable. It is a multiplicity[.]” (A Thousand Plateaus)
It is an assemblage of voices gathered together to speak on the immanence of myth. It is, as already stated, a multiplicity, which is fitting as myth embraces multiplicity.
Contrasting Mythos with Logos, we contrast those multiple voices against the singular, the transcendent. Whereas the logos is the word of God, the divine fiat that structures and moves our universe, so the mythos is an indefinite set of articles, tales told for the telling itself, with no hard and fast authority, no assertable Ultimate Truth, no attributable origin grounded in cold solidity. It is immanent rather than transcendent because it is the codification of our direct experience, forms and ideas ground from our collective bones and flesh.
-Mr. VI and James Curcio, from the chapter “Immanence and Butchery.”
